I just rented the Earthsea miniseries on DVD, which was done originally by Hallmark for the SciFi Channel. I thought it quite good, though it needed some editing around our kids. Sean Ashmore works as Ged...in fact, the cast is very well done, as are the costumes, cinematography, music, etc. I had seen the books by Ursula K. LeGuin since the 1970's but never read them. Does anyone know if this movie followed the book or not? It was a very good story and we all enjoyed ourselves watching Ged and Vetch.
