Legend of the Seeker

Critics Consensus

Legend of the Seeker aspires to high fantasy but feels too derivative of more imaginative fairy tales, though viewers in search of lush vistas may get a kick from the series' gorgeous New Zealand backdrop.

    Every episode was a delight.

    The writing is excellent although the plot is usually predictable. Great world building. The characters have depth and the acting is really good. Definitely worth watching.

    Not a very complicated series - good to pass the time, has a simple plot to follow. Writing and acting is rather mediocre, but definitely worth the watch.

    I read the books and it doesnt follow it at all but I still LOVED it!!! Just treat it like an independent story with these characters and dont compare to the books Nd you will enjoy it

    amazing show absolutely love it, been rewatching it for years can't get enough just so captivating!!!
  • Sep 09, 2019
    This series is a great example of why Fantasy needs to be taken seriously and given a proper budget. This series is along the lines of the budget of Xena: Warrior Princess. Everything about this series just feels cheesy and unearned. The only part of it that is enjoyable is the comedic Wizard played by Bruce Spence. This show might have good source material buts its hard to tell buried underneath this rubbish. Watchable at best. Will not transport you into an escapist fantasy realm like fantasy television should.
