I love this show. It isn't or should I say wasn't like anything else on T.V. It isn't a crime drama, vampire show, a soap, talk show, an ever evil reality show, teen drama, or dumb sitcom. It was action, adventure, fantasy! A show to get lost in, to escape for one hour. It was funny, sad, interesting, light and dark, great chemistry with the actors, and yes for those romantics out there, there is even romance. There was sword fighting and good versus evil. It didn't fit the cookie cutter shows on T.V. so it couldn't stay, so I will now be content with two seasons on DVD and iTunes to fill my adventure hour.
No the series wasn't like the book and I am glad it made the series unpredictable. So if you love the books be aware it isn't the same. Just be open minded and know they are two separate things.
