I like D&D, medieval fantasy, pretty girls (especially if they like other pretty girls), solid plot, and good character development.
Is there hope for me with this series?
Somewhat. There's plenty of medieval fantasy, a pretty decent plot (depending who you ask) as well as pretty decent character development (also depending who you ask). There's a fair number of cute girls (and evil cute girls who sometimes like other evil cute girls when you get to the Mord-Sith related episodes).
Some of the actors will be familiar (Ted Raimi shows up a few times as well as Charisma Carpenter, and there are a fair few former Power Rangers actors from the last 5 - 10 series once in a while, but it's filmed in New Zealand so thats expected a bit), the effects aren't terrible but also not always great (they are decent enough, though).
I think you'd enjoy it if you can actually sit down and get into it. It isn't really a chore to watch, but some people who liked all the elements the show has still didn't much care for it.
