This Rafe Judkins interview reduces my confidence that the TV series will be good Narg Send a noteboard - 11/11/2021 03:55:20 PM

In the interview, Judkins talks about fundamental changes he has made to RJ's gender-based world building. The following Judkins quote annoys me: "It’s a very fundamental change actually to make to the book series, and it has a lot of ripple effects, and we’ll continue to do things like that I think are more reflective of what hopefully Robert Jordan would be writing if he was writing today."

Uggh. Rather than change the world building to what you hope RJ would write if he thought the same way you do, how about stick to the world building that RJ actually did write and only make the kinds of changes that are necessary when going from book to film. I'm not encouraged by this.

A little learning is a dangerous thing.

Here's a simple economic fact - 11/11/2021 04:54:14 PM 45 Views
You're right, it's all about the money and projecting whether RJ would approve is spin. - 11/11/2021 05:44:56 PM 28 Views
I'm fairly certain RJ would have approved of making money, though! *NM* - 11/11/2021 07:31:08 PM 8 Views

I wish they had just gotten rid of Perrin altogether. - 11/11/2021 09:09:57 PM 30 Views
Bah, Perrin is closeted bisexual representation *NM* - 11/11/2021 09:25:57 PM 4 Views
Sigh just learned of the leaks and they are making Perrin even more hetero and angsty *NM* - 12/11/2021 01:17:42 AM 7 Views
Yea . . . spoilers inside - 12/11/2021 03:35:44 PM 33 Views

More hetero than 'all the way' hetero? *NM* - 13/11/2021 03:11:55 AM 5 Views
Many of the storylines around Perrin became tedious but would be less so with editing. - 11/11/2021 10:15:33 PM 21 Views
Wrong spot *NM* - 12/11/2021 01:23:58 AM 6 Views

I used that at the other place - 11/11/2021 07:17:05 PM 11 Views
It's a pretty big change, yeah, but also a logical one. - 11/11/2021 07:33:20 PM 23 Views
Yes, this had me worried as I was rereading the series - 14/11/2021 10:02:48 AM 27 Views
