The popular Sword of Truth fantasy series by Terry Goodkind is coming to television this fall. There will be a 22 episode run with a two-hour premier. The show is shot in the now required location for all fantasy films, i.e., New Zealand, and is directed by veteran horror meister Sam Raimi. The first season story arc is supposed to cover the events of the first novel Wizard’s First Rule. The story of Kahlan and Richard is a dark and harrowing one so it may be a challenge to retain those essential ingredients as the show is slated to appear on network television. Let’s hope they succeed and don’t dumb it down or dilute it too much. Be sure to read the books first.
