View original postQuick take: see my link (lifted from 'Mookie).


View original postBut 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.


View original postY'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.




View original postI don't get why y'all are so hard on the show. Compared with the adaptations of "The Magicians" and even more so Apple+'s Foundation, it is very much in the spirit of the books.




View original postLOL So it's slightly less shitty than those adaptations? Giiiiirl, that is not a winning recommendation. "Wheel of Time" on Amazon: Not as big a steaming pile of poo as it could be!


View original postI'm an angry at the producers. I truly love the world that Jordan built and had hoped for something decent. It was false hope!


View original postBut, if you liked it, I want you to continue enjoying and hope they go for however many seasons you want. I just won't share the journey with you.

Hey, when you say it is slightly less shitty, you don't know how shitty those shows are. Think the Eye of the World is in the Stone of Tear, and Rand is Lan's secret son bad.

A reasonable decision. - 22/11/2021 02:15:23 AM 100 Views

Sanderson's providing some kind of running commentary... which does contain criticism. - 23/11/2021 07:59:10 PM 77 Views
Yes, I saw his comments on reddit. - 23/11/2021 09:41:33 PM 94 Views

Good, those changes seem completely unnecessary and pointless. *NM* - 26/11/2021 05:43:39 PM 31 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 97 Views
Eh, I think you give them too much slack. - 22/11/2021 02:33:04 PM 80 Views
It's possible I'll agree with that after having seen more episodes... - 22/11/2021 03:04:54 PM 74 Views

Agreed on - - 22/11/2021 05:27:28 PM 86 Views
Yes - neat addition, I thought, as is the map with the comments. - 22/11/2021 08:37:19 PM 69 Views

So, doesn't suck nearly as much as some other shows? I can accept that. *NM* - 22/11/2021 01:44:23 PM 50 Views
