Is this show decent quality like some of those, or is it just of interest to fantasy fans? Judging by the first couple of episodes, how does it compare to more mainstream TV shows like Xena or Legend of the Seeker?


For a fantasy show, its amazingly good. Sean Bean (Sharpe, Boromir) brings the show some serious acting talent. Its limited by its source, IMHO, the books are not the best fantasy series ever but very nice to see a fantasy series turned into a show.

I never could get into the books, the plot was intricate but the writing seemed so geared to the adolescent reader I couldn't get into it when in my 20's.

I'm hoping the show is a great success and they turn some other fantasy classics into TV shows. Imagine Elric on HBO!
