    Did anyone here watch this? It was actually kinda good for a teeny bopper show.

    Yep. It wasn't great but we kept watching it anyways. The Druid was the only thing I wanted to see. I love those Spartacus dudes... Crixcus was hot. "Kill Them All!!" :laugh:

  • Terry Brooks, author of the books (which little resemble the show), is from the PNW.

  • Since I have read all the books, and I mean all of them, I understand that set of pictures. Those are pics of the prequels. I have not begun to watch them as I dont know if they will end up improperly portraying the characters as I believe them to be as they used poetic license on the Lord of the Rings series.

    Trust me when I tell you they are improperly portrayed in almost every possible way.

  • Yeah, agreed. If you like the Shanarra books, and saw value in the stories as written, it's almost guaranteed you're gonna hate the Shanarra Chronicles.

    If you have read any long series you typical are very disappointed in many aspects of how it is transferred to film, each person has their own vision of the written material and the cost challenges with bringing it to film with the depth of a book isn't possible.

    Game of Thrones has had that same issue.

    But if you can separate the books and the film and enjoy both on their given platforms you can enjoy both if done with some skill.
