    Well, I do love the series, so I'll certainly watch it. But I don't have high hopes. Eric Heisserer? With such illustrious credits as the mediocre remake/prequel of The Thing? And Fi(ve)nal Destination? I'll be surprised if it gets a full season in before it is cancelled. If it comes out while the Game of Thrones hype is still high, it might be able to fill a fall slot for people looking for something to tide them over, but the book isn't nearly as popular as A Song of Ice and Fire was before it's TV show came out, so I don't think as many people will be talking about it.

    But if it gets a good actor as Kvothe, it could do well.

    It can't be worse than Legend of the Seeker. Amusing but stupid at the same time.

    I did catch some of Legend of the Seeker while it was a little cheesy I did enjoy it.

    I seriously hope King Killer is better.

    I'm very worried that Kingkiller will be similar to Legend of the Seeker. I don't really see it as a doable TV show. That is UNLESS it is going to focus on Kvothe's adventures that he isn't telling Chronicler in the books. Really, I think that's the only way it could even remotely work.
    Hope Rothfuss didn't make a mistake by letting his story get picked up by the same guys who made such wise decisions concerning Firefly...

    Yeah it was entertaining, but cheesy is the right word. Also, season 1 didn't work on my DVD player. And the storyline was seriously lacking.

    I've never read the King Killer series! I should get the books before the show comes out. They look pretty decent; I've been looking at the author's website.
