I didn't make it more than 2 minutes into episode 1. Dragonsoul Send a noteboard - 22/11/2021 05:41:56 PM

Moiraine said something about men releasing the Dark One and women having to pick up the pieces or whatever, when in reality it was Lanfear that actually bore into his prison.

I knew at that point that there was going to be no point watching the show, because it wasn't really going to be based on the books.

The whole point was that the society during the Age of Legends was to blame for the rise of the Shadow, not men or women alone, and that you need both men and women working together to defeat it.

I got the distinct impression that that wasn't what this show was going to be about, so I decided to skip it and keep the book series alive in my mind instead.

From what I've read here (and elsewhere) most fans of the books didn't like the show at all, so I won't waste my time. Especially with new Dexter episodes (haven't seen that year either but I've heard good things) and new Yellowstone episodes to occupy my time.

Other than that, how did you like the play Mrs. Lincoln? *NM* - 22/11/2021 12:32:59 AM 167 Views

A reasonable decision. - 22/11/2021 02:15:23 AM 401 Views

Sanderson's providing some kind of running commentary... which does contain criticism. - 23/11/2021 07:59:10 PM 272 Views

Good, those changes seem completely unnecessary and pointless. *NM* - 26/11/2021 05:43:39 PM 168 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 300 Views
Eh, I think you give them too much slack. - 22/11/2021 02:33:04 PM 284 Views
It's possible I'll agree with that after having seen more episodes... - 22/11/2021 03:04:54 PM 283 Views

So, doesn't suck nearly as much as some other shows? I can accept that. *NM* - 22/11/2021 01:44:23 PM 233 Views
