Richard Cypher, a simple Westland woodsman, helps her escape them. Ranssyn Fane, commander of the soldiers, survives his confrontation with Kahlan and Richard and continues to pursue them. Returning home, Richard is sent by his father, George, to find an old man named Zedd. Richard learns that Zedd is really a powerful wizard from the Midlands, and Kahlan is a Confessor, a woman with the power to make someone tell the truth. Zedd reveals that Richard is the Seeker, the person destined to defeat Darken Rahl. Zedd hands Richard a magical weapon, the Sword of Truth. And Kahlan gives Richard the object of Fane's pursuit, the Book of Counted Shadows, which contains the secrets Rahl needs to capture ultimate power. In disbelief, Richard returns to his father, only to find that Fane has mortally wounded him. With his last breath, George reveals that what Zedd says is true. Richard confronts Fane, wanting vengeance. But Fane escapes with the coveted Book. Knowing he must stop Fane, Richard accepts his destiny as the Seeker and begins his training under Zedd. Rahl orders his forces in the Midlands to take down the Boundary into Westland and kill Richard, while Fane tries to return to Rahl with the Book.

Dont let this go the way of Firefly!!!
I dont want to see another great show die. Support this show! We need more Sci-fi Fantasy on TV!
so far so good...
it won't be like the books. this is a syndicated tv series... this is being made for the masses... perhaps this is what people mean when they call goodkind a sell out. an hbo or showtime series may have been more fitting for all the grimy little details and the strict chronology. as a syndication, we're gonna get the first few series as close as possible to the first book and then a loosely chronological bunch of standalone episodes. i'm guessing of course but from the interviews, that's what seems to be happening. my approach is simple as a big fan of the series: this is, when all is said and done, still a sword of truth production and quite frankly i've wanted anything like this for the longest time so i'm not about to be ungrateful. i already beneffited of having read the books and really taking it all in... i'm willing to accept the liberties being taken. so far, it looks great. i still think it'll be revealed later that zedd is his grandfather. wizard's first rule was exceptionally good at springing secrets on you... it's part of why that first one is still the best of the whole bunch (although temple of winds and blood of the fold certainly come close). people are upset about richard not being raised by zedd but you know, the obi wan thing works and that's probably why raimi decided to make zedd the mysterious hermit who has, unbeknownst to all, been watching over richard. it can still very well be revealed that he's his grandfather and the plot isn't damaged at all. i think we, as fans of the books, can be a little more lenient about this, don't you think? :)
Now to give a fair review both to the people reading this and to the creators of the show I will pretend that I have never read Mr. Goodkind’s novels. Legend of the Seeker is beautiful especially considering its just aired the first two episodes back to back. The creators put together a wonderful look for the series, the on location filming was amazing and special effects were only used when necessary for effect, story and scenery. I believe they held back from being too flashy which I believe was the right thing to do. I find that the plot is unique and makes me want to see more, because I want see what they do differently, and to see who appears in the new story and who they cut out. I believe that fan’s of Mr. Goodkind should watch the series even if they do something differently, no especially if they do something differently. So fans can experience the magic and mysticism of Richard and his world for a second time like it’s the first time. I will not say that more people should read the novels, but I will ask people to watch because I believe that the Legend of the Seeker is a show that is all too rare in a world of reality shows and documentaries. Its time for fantasy to take over prime time and magazine covers again.
