At the time, I didn't know that Earthsea was a book series (though I figured it would be considering how much movies/TV shows get made off books nowadays) but I really liked the miniseries. The music was beautiful and I thought was very well done....there were a few acting choices I wouldn't have made, but I'm far from a director. I read the reviews after the series ended and saw that a lot of people were disappointed in the mini-series because (obviously) the books were so much better. Surprisingly enough, I was just the opposite in my assessment - probably because I had already gotten a visual of the books based off the mini-series. Did anyone else watch this mini-series? What were your thoughts on it?
