Oh my God.

They are making a television series based on Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series.

*boggles* I can't wait to see how they're going to portray the Mord Sith in a rated-for-television way. I suppose they'll remove all of the sexuality and make them purely torturers? Of course, it loses a little something, I think, however you play it. (For those not in the know, the Mord Sith are basically a group of female dominants, of the S&M variety, who are also magical in nature. They use pain and domination to break people after they've taken control of their magic. It's impossible to really describe them, but they were actually one of my favorite parts of the series. Raised from girlhood in this sisterhood of pain and control, they only learn about everything else life has to offer after the MC becomes their new lord and master - and refuses to use them as all the previous lords have. Some of the series' most poignant moments have come from Mord Sith characters. Plus, they're badass. :)

Also, I still have such mixed and bitter feelings about this once beloved series (through book 3, anyway), that I wonder how a TV series can possibly make it any worse? Or maybe I'll actually like the TV show better? Anything is possible.
