Legend of the Seeker: Season 1 (2008 - 2009)



Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for Legend of the Seeker Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

Now, the fair thing isn't to judge a show on what I expected it to be, but on what it is. But even on its own merits, "Legend of the Seeker" is a disappointment.

Jan 3, 2019 | Full Review…

For syndicated television, this series looks pretty sharp.

Jan 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

While it's far from the worst show on television, it commits the worst sin of all, and is completely forgettable.

Jan 3, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It wants to be Tolkien TV but at this point lacks a sense of epic magic.

Jan 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The series will satisfy fans of the fantasy genre. The fight scenes are exciting, the overarching story gives the characters enough background to be interesting, and the New Zealand locations are stunning.

Jan 3, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This is not postmodern, camp rompery like Xena or Hercules. It is as if Raimi and his team have contracted RSI of the eyelid and can undertake no more winking for the duration. It is curiously refreshing. E'nj'oy.

Good fun, tailor made for weekend television viewing. Those who tuned in were introduced to a handsome hero, a beautiful heroine, a dastardly villain and lots of sword fighting action.

Jan 3, 2019 | Rating: 7.8/10 | Full Review…

The show should offend only the purest of purists. It is, basically, good-looking fun, and if I say that much of this might have been written by a 12-year-old, you must understand that I mean that as a good thing.

Jan 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Seeker is both endearingly retro and agonizingly humorless, a kind of poor man's Lord of the Rings.

Jan 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Nothing original. Parents who think this fantasy series may be fine family fare should be warned: Some of the fight scenes are more violent than expected.
