Why, pray tell, am I writing about a TV series. I enjoy it but how does it fit in this venue. Partly because it is good but also because I want to reiterate the availability of video on the internet and how good it can be, not just content good but also quality good. I watched episode one of this series at high quality and was impressed. It was as good as running it off of a DVD. I sat at my desk with my wireless headphones watching my own TV show while 3 feet away my darling bride was watching American Idol. (I won't go into how wrong I think that whole TV show is.) I digress, the future is now. We can watch what we want, when we want to without the TV programming geniuses deciding on when and what we can watch. Moreover, it is free if you are already online with broadband. You don't pay one thin dime more to watch on your schedule instead of someone else's. That is why I am writing about a TV show.
This isn’t a book but it is based on the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. The series website doesn’t really point out that the series is written by Terry Goodkind but he is listed as the writer in several other places. If you have enjoyed any of the books in this series, I recommend the TV series. I just found the show and went to Hulu to watch the episodes I have missed. The TV show seems to follow the books story line far more accurately that what you normally see on TV. Of course, it helps it the books author is also writing the TV show. Incidentally if you are not familiar with Hulu, you should get familiar. It is a terrific way to watch video on your schedule. See my blog on Hulu. Again, I am enjoying the TV series and recommend you watch if you are a fantasy fan.
