I'm about 4 episodes in now and hooked on this show. Its very dark and creepy and has all the elements you see in the game (and perhaps the books? I never read them). The acting is on point as is the casting. There are a few campy parts here and there but not enough to overwhelm the show as a whole.
I don't know if anyone will recall The Sword of Truth show that was out several years ago. I was so excited about that one because I'd read all or most of the Terry Goodkind series and was excited to see it on screen. But the show was utterly disappointing and I had to stop after a few episodes. The casting was terrible (save for Kahlan who was well cast) and the acting left much to be desired. THAT show felt like an 80s beastmaster remake except the 80s had the excuse of being the 80s...it was cool back then.
Any thoughts from others who may have started the series?
