That's a big "if'. LiterateDog Send a noteboard - 22/11/2021 03:31:11 PM

as I did expect more than this and I do feel like they have ground to make up in the next episodes to really get me on board. If it keeps being this mixture of 'eh, good enough' elements with a handful of 'wtf is this nonsense' ones, my patience also won't be infinite. Despite GoT's infamous trainwreck final season (which I haven't even seen), it had some truly excellent character scenes in the earlier seasons - if we can get anything like that on this show, even if it's only on occasion, it'll be worth it.
View original postEven leaving aside it being a travesty to WOT, it just for itself, is a terrible show. There is nothing I can think of that will ever tempt me into watching another moment of it. As it is, I must scrub what I've seen from the depths of my mind, lest it taint my next reading experience.

I guess I'm not the type to decide that quickly about any show - I know enough shows that started out shakily but became much, much better later on. And I knew beforehand that there'd be a number of changes that would irritate me as a fan of the books. Sure, I wasn't expecting those changes to be as dumb as the Perrin's wife thing, but let's hope most of the other ones moving forward aren't that bad...

Thank you.

When I criticize this show for it's GOT-itization, I'm not saying I disliked the GOT show. I agree with you that it was a really good show that captured the spirit of the books, especially in the earlier seasons. WOT is not GOT, though. But the producers are trying to make WOT more like GOT in flavor, and that I do not like. The two book series had a completely different feel to them. Two series, both alike in dignity, but still not the same.

Besides all that, I think the show (that I've seen) is just BAD, WOT or not.

Oh well. I'm now reading Naomi Novik's Temeraire books, and they are delightful. Perhaps they, or a nice dick, can remove the bad flavor this adaptation has left in my mouth.

Sanderson's providing some kind of running commentary... which does contain criticism. - 23/11/2021 07:59:10 PM 267 Views

Good, those changes seem completely unnecessary and pointless. *NM* - 26/11/2021 05:43:39 PM 161 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 291 Views
Eh, I think you give them too much slack. - 22/11/2021 02:33:04 PM 272 Views
It's possible I'll agree with that after having seen more episodes... - 22/11/2021 03:04:54 PM 275 Views
