Legend of the Seeker: Season Finale spoilers…


Spoiler alert! Older interview here with tidbits about the Season Finale…

From multipleverses.com courtesy of SciFi Tracker:

…(Speaking of time travel…….there’s no Tardis in Legend’s season one finale, but there will be a rather flexible treatment of the time-space continuum. “Which is so exciting – it’s such a good script!” reveals Regan. “We start [filming] next week. And everybody on set – literally all the makeup girls and the crew, everyone was reading the script and flying through the pages and every once in a while someone will look up and go, “Oh my GOD!” and everyone is like, “I know!” So much crazy stuff goes down in the finale. I get to age many, many years in the finale.”)…

…Also Michael Hurst is directing the final episode of the first season of American tv series Legend of the Seeker. He has previously directed episodes 1.08, “Denna” and 1.10, “Sacrifice,” and played the evil wizard Amfortas in 1.12, “Revenant”. These episodes are now available for viewing online at legendoftheseeker.com (US only)….

On the series and how it has diverged from the Sword of Truth novels, insight into how this is episodic stand alone TV not a sweeping arc a la some BSG and all of TSCC:

…Kenneth Biller, one of Legend’s executive producers, has maintained that the show’s creators are in pursuit of the holy grail of television – creating quick-hit, stand-alone episodes that anyone can just tune into without missing a beat, while also maintaining a sweeping mythology – in this case, as presented by author Terry Goodkind’s books….

…Craig: “Personally, I think it’s best to separate the two. And [the show has] kind of done that. It’s on its own train track now. I’m a real big fan of Terry Goodkind, and I think those books are really amazing. I think as long as we be true to that but admit, what we’re doing is taking the characters, and all these great ideas, and the structure and the relationships and the mythology…..it results in two different things. You can’t really get 22 hours of television out of one book. You have to just allow it to be what it is.”

Bridget leans toward agreeing with her co-star. “I think obviously it would be truer to the books to have this big, long arc. But……TV is such a bizarre medium. A show is so informal in that you basically find yourself inside someone’s house. Whereas with movies or theater, there’s a formal setting, and people pay money to sit in that seat…..but with TV, you can be making dinner, and there’s Richard and Kahlan. I like that idea of them being just friends that you know, and I like the idea of just popping on an episode and saying, “Oh, where are they at?” And I think audiences are smarter than [some people] think they are. They’ll catch up. They’ll catch on. Although you could watch this show on mute, and be entertained.”…
