Legend of the Seeker

I was a fan of the Sword of Truth books by Terry Goodkind and was skeptical but interested in this TV adaptation of it.  Early on the show made it pretty clear that it was not going to follow the books but rather tell it's own story.   That's alright but core elements of some of the characters have been changed or ripped out so now it is just a fantasy show with little to do with the source material. 
  
They might be able to adapt the various plot lines from the books into the show with some tweaks but it seems they are only dipping into those books.  I wonder how long this show will be able to go on?
