I haven’t said much about this show, but I have to admit that it is one of my favorites. This is my first time following a show that airs only in syndication, but I’m sure to catch every episode (DVR helps, of course). I haven’t read the book series the show is based on (The Sword of Truth), so I have the luxury of watching without criticizing, and maybe that’s part of my admiration. The cinematography is stunning and I like that the characters seem “real” in that they aren’t necessarily modelesque (though the 7th episode may challenge my notion on that front). If you find yourself with nothing to do this weekend, look the show up and give it a try.
I read this week that NBC is NOT going to show Merlin now, due to needing airtime to show more episodes of fat people trying to lose weight. Boo them. Not the fat people–NBC. For anyone wanting to see it, just let me know.
In continuing my geekish fandom posts, I’m going to start posting my “Top 5” elements from various fandoms from now until the rest of year. I’d love to see if you share any of them! Check back soon!
