Only got up to episode 7 so far but I'm very much enjoying it even if it is your typical LOTR fantasy stuff. These are the sort of programs the UK should be good at but for some reason we never get it quite right. I suppose this lot have the advantage of having the gorgeous New Zealand to shoot in though.
Am starting to get crossover bunnies though. I mean, wouldn't this fit so well with Merlin? And couldn't you just see Darken Rahl being Morgana's real father and wanting her to go all dark side?
