Thanks to [profile] swatkat24's relentless pimpage, I am now watching Legend of the Seeker. I just finished S1 tonight, and will fling myself into S2 starting tomorrow!

This show...it's cliched, ridiculous, cheesy, and superficial. And no, it doesn't somehow manage to transcend those things and secretly or subtextually provide us something deeper. Instead, it's just extremely comfortable in its own skin -- it accepts its own inherent cheesiness, dresses up in sparkles, dances around and shouts: THIS IS WHO I AM! AND I'M HAPPY THIS WAY! HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE ME WHEN I'LL DO HANDSPRINGS TO AMUSE YOU?

How, indeed?

One could critique *all* sorts of things about this show. But that would be like pulling the tail of a fluffy, adorable kitten. I think I would rather just pet it. (And maybe feed it catnip now and then to see it rampage around stoned.)
