Also why is every city from the past influenced by the LOTR movies? The Shrike Send a noteboard - 22/11/2021 03:16:13 PM

Take the White Tower and its descriptions in the books versus what we see in the trailer. The White Tower was built so close to the Breaking and with the Power that it was basically straight up and closer to being our own kind of skyscraper than the neo-Baroque Byzantine hybrid that every city in Fantasy seems to be these days.

Aridhol (Shadar Logoth), Tar Valon, the city in the Amazon Tolkien show, the cities in LOTR movies. It's become so generic that a Fantasy city has to look this way. And that annoys me.

Too bad! - 22/11/2021 02:59:24 PM 254 Views
A reasonable decision. - 22/11/2021 02:15:23 AM 399 Views

Sanderson's providing some kind of running commentary... which does contain criticism. - 23/11/2021 07:59:10 PM 270 Views

Good, those changes seem completely unnecessary and pointless. *NM* - 26/11/2021 05:43:39 PM 167 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 298 Views
Eh, I think you give them too much slack. - 22/11/2021 02:33:04 PM 282 Views
It's possible I'll agree with that after having seen more episodes... - 22/11/2021 03:04:54 PM 281 Views
That's a big "if'. - 22/11/2021 03:31:11 PM 280 Views
