It works in English.

To reassure people again, on the disc menu you get a choice of languages and if you pick English it runs in the original form. So the only thing German is the writing on the box.
I like the books and I like this series. The series does not follow the books closely because using the episodic TV format it cannot. I actually prefer that, seeing them as two closely related but different things. The problem with straight adaptations from books is that you see the director's imagination and characters not the pictures you have formed in your own head. This often leaves me slightly disappointed as they are almost certain to be different.
This point however leads me to my one issue with this series. As ripped as Craig Horner is, in my mind he does not have the presence to be the Seeker. Using him would be like using Tom Cruise to play Jack Reacher. Oh hang on..... I was really surprised to find Craig is 5'11" as he comes across much smaller on screen, especially in scenes where all the main characters are together.
Put that minor irritant to one side though and just enjoy this entertaining romp. One word of caution, some of the detail in some of the scenes involving various monsters mean this is definitely a 12 possibly even a 15 certificate. I would not recommend this for younger members of your family.
