    I had never heard about this book or even watched MTV for that matter but I somehow came across this show and LOVED it. I mean wow. In 10 eps SOOOOO much happens. Talk about twists and turns. I loved the character of Eretria (if they ever do a spin off I'd watch). I love the three main characters (amberla/eretria/wil). Fast paced with lots of action. You've got magic and elves and so much going on. I am happy the show was picked up for a season 2 because the ending is a cliffhanger I must say. I also must admit I really enjoy the chem between eretria/amberle or princessrover as fans call it. Hope this show is around for years to come.

    I am a huge fan of the Terry Brooks Shannara Chronicles books and was very much looking forward to watching the new TV series. Most of the times I am not a fan of the translation from Book to TV or the Big Screen but even taking that into consideration I was pulled in due to how they changed the location to be post apocalyptic earth and intertwined the locations of the books with current day locations like San Francisco. I found myself having to force myself to not watch them all in one sitting but it did take only one 3-day weekend to finish them all. I love being able to watch them without commercials too!

    I watched this on TV and loved it so much I bought the season on disc. If you like Game of Thrones/Lord of Rings type fantasy then this is the series for you! The characters are interesting. The dialogue is engaging. The story line is excellent. The series overall is very well produced and I was amazed how well it made on a television budget. I highly recommend to anyone interested that they give this series a try!!

    Big fan of his books so I was worried about MTV doing the show. The overall feeling is just good, not bad, not outstanding just good. Allanon seems too weak compared to the books, I was really disappointed in the casting for him, I guess I pictured him more dark with long hair, etc. The acting is really surprisingly talented, with some faces you know. It's definitely going for the MTV audience, maybe it will be moved to a different network in the future! Worth buying though if you're a fan of the books.

    When I originally watched this on TV, I was rather disappointed that it veered so far from the book. I hesitated a bit getting it on blu-ray because of that. On watching a 2nd time through, knowing what it was, I enjoyed it alot more. There are some things I still don't enjoy. It's a bit too MTV'd in spots which made my eyes roll and the acting in spots is rather bad. Still, I found it fun the 2nd time through. The video quality on this release I also thought was excellent. It was nice and crisp and popped.

    I'm not familiar with the books this series is based on, and that probably contributed to my enjoying the show as much as I did (apparently, the show is quite different from the books). I found this to be a pretty straightforward, but enjoyable, Lord of the Rings-type adventure. And I was happy to see Poppy Drayton (who had a small but memorable role in Downtown Abbey) as one of the leads.

    I read the series of books. I did not want that to end. When the series came on TV, I had to watch it. I grew up with the books. I fell in love with the series all over again. I bought the season on regular disc first, hoping it would come in blue ray. My prayers were answered. I love this show. Can't wait for the rest. Here's to wishing. Thank you.

    Seems to be set in the future after the world we know today has collapsed and the age of man has ended. An elvish lady has to set out on a quest to try and save a tree know as the Ellcrys which imprisons demons. If they fail the world is lost. Based on books series from Terry Brooks. Think it could of been better if directed like Lord of the Rings
