Oh man. Talk about clunky exposition central! I swear, every cliche for high fantasy ever. Primarily Merlin meets LotR, I thought.
... It was great. :D
It's funny, everything I know about this show I know from watching hollywoodgrrl's vids, so I kept thinking 'ooh, that's the shot from Ladies with Pretty Hair!' etc. Good times.
Anyway, I don't have much of intelligence or note to say apart from that I enjoyed it enough to want to watch the next episode. Oh, and the show is seriously pretty to look at. And Kahlan is AWESOME.
