Different but enjoyable
I have read every book that Terry Brooks has written (except Star wars Ep1) Yes there are differences between this and the book, lets be fair there had to be. (same thing happened to LOTR, The Hobbit and Harry Potter)
I loved all of the books and enjoyed this also, yes the episode is a little scrambled compared to the book and yes it will take a while to get used to the actors playing those parts but I think it will get there.
I would however like to add that Manu as 'Allanon' was an epic choice and he suits the role well, and I don't mind Austin as 'Wil'l either as I think he will develop into the roll.
All in all a good bit of TV, and I think people will be more interested in future episodes as there will be more action and effects... just remember how long it took Thrones to get good!!!..
Do yourself a favour, give it a view and give it a chance before you damn it into eternity.
