Lately, I keep seeing ads for this all over town, premiering this weekend. It was nagging my brain for a week before I realized it must be an adaptation of a series I half read over a decade ago. No doubt the show will be wretched, but the thing is there’s almost no way it could possibly be worse than its source material.
Seriously. Picture a cross between Dungeons & Dragons-style fantasy and (gulp) Objectivist philosophy. It’s actually worse than it sounds. No doubt some randy Randians will be lured in by the potential for introducing medieval weaponry into their bizarre personal relations, but I advise the rest of you to steer clear.
