I don't understand this take aerocontrols Send a noteboard - 22/11/2021 07:02:12 PM

View original post
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.


In the original books, not much was known about the causes of the Breaking, and a lot of people legit thought the Dragon did it. It's not weird to me that Moiraine would think that, if you just posit that it would be in the White Tower's interest that everyone believe it. The Oaths don't stop Aes Sedai from being wrong about the past, or believing a self-serving untruth.

Of course, the TV show could alter this fictional history, but maybe they won't.

Hollywood has the best moral compass, because it has compassion.

A reasonable decision. - 22/11/2021 02:15:23 AM 185 Views
But I'm a thoroughly unreasonable person! - 22/11/2021 02:29:45 PM 136 Views

Sanderson's providing some kind of running commentary... which does contain criticism. - 23/11/2021 07:59:10 PM 139 Views

Good, those changes seem completely unnecessary and pointless. *NM* - 26/11/2021 05:43:39 PM 76 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 164 Views
Eh, I think you give them too much slack. - 22/11/2021 02:33:04 PM 143 Views
It's possible I'll agree with that after having seen more episodes... - 22/11/2021 03:04:54 PM 144 Views
