Ever since I was young, I’ve always enjoyed television shows and movies that revolved around magic and wizardry. I can remember seeing a movie called “Legend” when I was young. This movie starred Tom Cruise and focused on him fighting a demon to save the word from darkness.
Since then I’ve always been drawn to those types of movies and shows. Several years back I had a close friend that made sure he always caught the latest episode of Hercules and Xena. I would make a point to drop by his house before going out for the night to keep up with the show.
The trend continued as I got older and as a result I made sure to see Merlin, Lord of the Rings, and the Harry Potter lineup. While having never read the books, I immediately became hooked to seeing them on TV.
A couple of weeks ago I had a couple of things to do on a Saturday morning and had plans to meet with my in-laws for an annual Christmas-time dinner. I had a couple of hours to kill in between, so I grabbed a cigar logged on to Hulu to see what was new.
I started paging through the featured items on the front page and saw that a show entitled “Legend of the Seeker” was available for viewing. Being a sucker for that type of show, I got the player rolling and started the season.
Over the next couple of days I managed to watch all seven episodes available and was enjoying the show very much. There is a lot of overacting at times, as well as a couple of things that seem far fetched, even for a show revolving around magic.
After a long pause, episode eight has become available for viewing. Catching up on the latest episode was just as enjoyable as the seven before it. While the show looks low-budget and kind of hokey at times, I like it.
If you are like me and enjoy these types of shows, check out the Legend of the Seeker on Hulu. It appears that the episodes will not be expiring anytime soon, so check it out when you get a little free time.
