I am not even bothering with 2 & 3. LiterateDog Send a noteboard - 21/11/2021 09:51:46 PM

Quick take: see my link (lifted from 'Mookie).

But overall, I've watched the first episode, and this show is just absolute SHIT. I have no intentions of watching any more of it and having it intrude upon my consciousness when I do my next series reread. The books weren't perfect, but they were absolutely Shakespearean in their quality when compared to this horrible piffle.

Y'all have gone over all that's wrong with it. I just can't. I also can't imagine where the budget went. Jesus fuck me, but I can't fully express my frustration and irritation with the producers of this show. It ISN'T Wheel of Time. They lifted a few elements (badly done) to jumpstart their efforts to make a run-of-the-mill Sword'n'Sorcery show that could try to get that GOT audience. Better luck next time, assholes, with whichever literary property you screw over. Ugh. Narg not happy.

A reasonable decision. - 22/11/2021 02:15:23 AM 31 Views
But I'm a thoroughly unreasonable person! - 22/11/2021 02:29:45 PM 12 Views
Then start acting like it! - 23/11/2021 07:00:54 PM 10 Views
Sanderson's providing some kind of running commentary... which does contain criticism. - 23/11/2021 07:59:10 PM 21 Views
Yes, I saw his comments on reddit. - 23/11/2021 09:41:33 PM 28 Views

Good, those changes seem completely unnecessary and pointless. *NM* - 26/11/2021 05:43:39 PM 1 Views
I think the point to remember is, the early episodes were never going to be that great. - 22/11/2021 08:46:33 AM 39 Views
Eh, I think you give them too much slack. - 22/11/2021 02:33:04 PM 19 Views
It's possible I'll agree with that after having seen more episodes... - 22/11/2021 03:04:54 PM 20 Views

So, doesn't suck nearly as much as some other shows? I can accept that. *NM* - 22/11/2021 01:44:23 PM 4 Views
