I've only read part of Wizard's First Rule (about 200 pages in
) so I don't really have that for comparison, which might help. I always kind of expect a TV show is going to differ from the books, though, if for no other reason than that a show has to sustain a totally different kind of energy than a book. Books can take time with descriptions and build up where TV shows can't.
I hope the show will be out on DVD soon! I definitely want to watch some episodes again.
