If your childhood was anything like mine, an inordinate (read: potentially unhealthy) number of Saturday afternoons were spent sprawled in front of the television (Lego in hand) as you reveled in the fun and adventure that was HERCULES: THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS and XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS.
Which is why, it should come as no surprise that when I heard about Sam Raimi’s (SPIDER-MAN) attempt to revitalize the once popular mid-90’s heroic genre (complete with faux British accents) with LEGEND OF THE SEEKER (Click for official site), this TV Addict was to say the least, mildly intrigued.
That said, thanks to twenty plus hours of television a week and an upcoming guest spot on Tim Goodman’s TV Talk Machine Podcast (Seriously, much more on that later, trust me!) this TV Addict is a very busy man.
Begging the question, to those of you like myself who look back on Raimi’s cheesy 90’s adventure shows with a similar fondness. Is LEGEND OF THE SEEKER a worthy follow up to HERCULES and XENA? (And more importantly… where do we think my parent’s stored all that lego?)
Feel free to put your critics hat on and post away.
