Anybody watch it? I'm just curious if it is any amount of entertaining at all. I didn't hate the book, but it certainly was no Covenant, and nor was it Lord of the Rings. It made me as interested as the first Wheel of Time book. And I never could get beyond the first couple chapters of the second Shannara book.

I've watched the first couple of episodes and it's bearable. I tried the first book years ago and didn't make it very far. There's plenty of action in the TV series almost from the very start and, a-la-GOT, they have sexed it up a fair bit. It's also quite US-teenage-friendly in the way characters talk (without that necessarily being as bad as it sounds) which is interesting/stange for a mostly generic fantasy setting.

Mildly diverting without adding anything new to the mix.

IMO, horrible. Like most of MTV content. Allanon is unrecognizable.

So it sucks, just like the book.


That's all I need to know.
