We watched the first few episodes and never watched it again.
Yes, this does seem to be a common response! I asked dh, who loved the series, why he kept watching and he says, 'You notice I sit there shaking my head a lot.' A lot is out of order, lots is completely original content. He also pointed out that the title of the show is Legend of the Seeker, not Sword of Truth or even Wizards First Rule.

I read the books when I was 13 (yikes! glad a lot of stuff went over my head) and again a couple of years ago, and they're okay but pretty graphic and kinda yucky in some parts. I love the show because while it does have more blood than I care for, it's less graphic and sexual and generally less icky than the books.
Oh man, I seriously adore the show. It's so good. I love the guy who plays Richard, he's so hot too!
and Kahlan is just beautiful. I aspire to be as beautiful and butt-kicking as her someday!
Dh says in his opinion they got Kahlan's appearance just right.
Sex and violence: dh says the tv series would have to be rated R to NC17 to remain true to the books.
I imagine it's a bit like fan fiction with a big budget.
