Oh ****. I read those books in my early teens and really liked them. I didn't have much of a frame of reference so I have no idea how they hold up but I'm all for more fantasy on television.
Yeah, I wasn't a huge Brooks fan either. And I should have, but just didn't dig the Hildenbrandt art. That being said, any fantasy on tv is a good thing. I wonder though if this will get done like Xena/Hercules or any one of those weird canadian productions that wind up on channel 13 or something.
If it's anything like Xena/Hercules I'll switch channel faster than you can say Shannaramadingdong.
Fantasy is easily my favorite genre but i dont agree that any fantasy on TV is a good thing. There is too much poorly executed fantasy out there.
Xena/Hercules are good in their own way but that style doesnt necessarily work for most fantasy books.
