    Legend of the Seeker season one finale (SPOILERS!) Views: 466
     Sunday, May 24 2009 @ 02:53 PM EDT
    Okay so we get a full reset here just like on the awful end of the Master trilogy. BUT here it shows us a WHAT IF that takes us on an emotional ride through the most difficult decision Caitlyn ever has to make. If a show is going to do something like a reset, then it MUST make it worthwhile, not have Martha go off on a world tour while her family is held by the Master, who is terribly portrayed by Jim Simm. Also Jack is held and does nothing. Then the kicker is that Martha’s story must end with everyone intoning the Doctor just like the audience who watched Peter Pan…only in Peter Pan, especially the 2003 live action movie was it spiritual, exciting, and charming…in DW it just is stupid and silly.

    LEGEND OF THE SEEKER is very well done show. I don’t have any knowledge of the books and probably don’t want them either…which is not like me. Usually when I see a movie or show based on a book or novel series (Alex Rider) I want to read the books. Here, enough fans have made me realize the show is too different from the fantasy books of Terry Goodkind or whatever his name is. Frankly, I can’t stand to read another book filled with huge fantasy fights between god like monsters and soldiers nor can I stand huge quests….most of these are poorly written, drawn out calculatingly cold battle scenes that promote war and revenge and hate. True, the TV show can do that as well but truth is most of the HUGE amount of fantasy books out there are really poorly written, boring, long drawn out quests that have nothing to do with anything. SEEKER, the TV show, has emotion, love, loyalty, caring, and fast paced action. It has three leads who are excellent and guest stars who often rise above the material. It also has strong plots and mostly original storylines with twists and turns that I don’t always see coming. It can be funny, sexy, and action filled and thought provoking. And it has strong villains, some of whom seems decidedly conflicted and human. That’s all I need to keep me a fan. This episode, even having a reset, made me feel human, made me cry, and made me hope. It creates a full world and a full universe and despite one or two faulty episodes, it continues strong in all of its assets including this reset ep. Too bad DW can’t do the same currently.
