Yep. But it's pretty weird how many entirely different things people are seeing in it. Legolas Send a noteboard - 23/11/2021 11:06:24 PM

View original postNot certain if The Guardian is just anti Amazon/Bezos but their reviews have been the outliers in terms of criticism. Even the way they frame things - "Bezos' 'Games of Thrones' is just so ignorant and hostile.

They're more hostile about the books than the TV series, though indeed not wildly enthusiastic about the latter, either. But then neither are we.
View original postAlso Madden as Egwene is amusing to me. Though I am not at Cannoli levels of hate for Egwene, I do find later books Egwene post ACOS to be one of the most hate inducing characters of the series. I hope Madden realizes who Egwene turns into.

I'm pretty sure they'll make her more sympathetic on the show - already have, to some extent, even in the three episodes we saw. Whether or not they cut the Seanchan storyline will obviously have a big impact on how Egwene evolves as well. I'd imagine it will be a lot like how GoT translated Cersei's character to the screen - in broad strokes her personality is the same and she does the same or similar things, but thanks to some combination of the writing and Lena Headey's acting skills, the TV character is still a good bit more sympathetic (at least, in the four or so seasons that I've seen, before they jumped the shark and all).

Other than that, how did you like the play Mrs. Lincoln? *NM* - 22/11/2021 12:32:59 AM 75 Views

A reasonable decision. - 22/11/2021 02:15:23 AM 186 Views

Sanderson's providing some kind of running commentary... which does contain criticism. - 23/11/2021 07:59:10 PM 139 Views
Yes, I saw his comments on reddit. - 23/11/2021 09:41:33 PM 181 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 165 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 145 Views
