Oh has she? Must've changed her mind since the earlier interview, then... and read quickly. Legolas Send a noteboard - 24/11/2021 08:17:24 AM

View original postThat Guardian article was ridiculous, but my own views on the female characters in WoT aside (which is a lot more positive than most), the idea that the books don't do female characters well isn't exactly new, is it?

No, it's not - but a lot of people commenting on them just seem to assume that that means the female characters in the books are depicted as weak or vapid, which is pretty absurd. And considering the travesty that is Nynaeve's storyline so far, plus the infamous fridging incident, it's pretty rich for people involved in the series to be claiming that the TV show has more depth in its female characters than the books.
View original postAlso, like me, Judkins' favorite character is Egwene, which was one of the reasons I was hopeful for the show. Oh well, maybe they'll improve over time. Apparently the show was a big hit for Amazon, so it'll be around for a while, looks like.

So he went and rewrote her so as to have a character people wouldn't loathe. Or at least, that's what the first episodes suggest and I would've expected them to do anyhow, we'll have to see how she evolves later on.

Sanderson's providing some kind of running commentary... which does contain criticism. - 23/11/2021 07:59:10 PM 273 Views

Good, those changes seem completely unnecessary and pointless. *NM* - 26/11/2021 05:43:39 PM 169 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 301 Views
Eh, I think you give them too much slack. - 22/11/2021 02:33:04 PM 285 Views
It's possible I'll agree with that after having seen more episodes... - 22/11/2021 03:04:54 PM 284 Views
