After you watch the show, read the books. Then, you'll never want to go back to the show. I liked the show when I first saw it, but after reading the first four books, it's obvious that they changed so many things to make the show (some truly needless changes), that the two are not really compatible.

Did you notice that when he was talking to Bianca in flashback in Storm Front, that he slipped into his native English accent? That's be like Hugh Laurie accidentally slipping into his native accent in House M.D. Paul Blackthorne also appeared in an episode of Monk (Mr. Monk and the Leper).
