We transitioned to this series from Legend of the Seeker, which was good too. This show has a good story line, sense of humor, and does go in and out of the legend. If you are serious about it following the legend then you will be frustrated. But like with all legend stories this show takes some liberties. We have watched all through season 4 and enjoyed it all. I have a 12 year old son and he loves it as well. It great that we can watch it together.
