Wizard's First Rule becomes Legend of the Seeker

You've got to wonder why, when someone is looking around for a fantasy book to make into a TV series, they'd ever look at Terry Goodkind's Wizard's First Rule. It's badly written. It has zero character development. It's badly plotted. It strains disbelief in unbelievable ways (one of which is a bad guy called Darken Rahl - I mean, unless his parents wanted to raise an insane overlord wannabe, you'd think they'd give him a better name). And it spins off, mid-book, into an irrelevant extended BDSM fantasy that, if it's portrayed as in the book, would put the series well off primetime TV. Yet nonetheless, Legend of the Seeker premieres tomorrow. Unbelievable.
