The Wheel of Time

Excuse me laydehs, but why isn’t there a Wheel of Time thread?!

It’s on Amazon Prime, came out in November I believe, based on the book series of the same name. 
 

I absolutely loved it, biggest enjoyment in ages from a series, so much so I’m now halfway through the first book.

Anyone else watched it?

I liked it!:enigma: The CGI was pretty bad, though, especially the landscape shots. Also, after the last episode I felt like not many things had happened during this season. I hope next season has better CGI and pacing :triggered:

So, there’s obvious differences but overall, I’d say the series sticks pretty close to the book. From episode 1 to episode 8 or whatever, I’d say the noticeable difference is there’s less trollocs in the series!

Well, no. Can anything compare to GOT. However I am enjoying it more than any other series in this category since GOT. I think I prefer it to The Witcher? Do you?

Yeah, but I guess first season they didn’t want to go crazy on VFX. I’ve heard the budget is substantially more for S2.

Rosamund Pike was incredible in this. My only gripe is that some of the young actors in central roles feel more like "models who act" rather than the other way around, and next to heavy hitters with deep, theatre-based backgrounds like Rosamund, Daniel Henney, and Kate Fleetwood they occasionally let down. 

But overall in terms of the spectacle, while not always perfect it really delivered, was gorgeous to look at, and is one of the most accessible and easy to watch fantasy series ever without deeplycompromising the weight of the source material. There are light compromises, sure. But I had a hell of an easier time getting into this than I did GoT. It grabs you from moment one and keeps the action going.

It's like Game of Thrones and Avatar: The Last Air Bender had a baby :giveup:

I can't wait for Season 2! :nooo:

Still in ep 5 .. the story is great and have potential . 

But there's something wrong with the acting .. and they way they roll the camera in fight scene it gave me headache.  Hope the season 2 is better .

BTW I think its too early to compare it with got .. even got s1 was not that good .

It a wonderful adaptation. I’m on book 4!

Are all the books as long as book 1?! I got it a few weeks ago, I'm just over half way through and I'm enjoying it. How do books, 2, 3 and 4 compare to book 1?

I’m on book 3. Book 2 (especially the 2nd half) was AMAZING! Lots of action. Book 3 is better so far. 
 

Honestly, finish up book 1 but it gets better in my opinion.

 

By the way, when Moirane told Siuan to get on her knees I hollered. :ally:

It’s trash. I read all the books and was excited for the show, but nothing about the show is “wheel of time” except for the characters’ names. I understand consolidating storylines as this can’t be a 14 season show, but they add in so many of these arbitrary plotlines and ignore much of the pre existing storyline. It’s really unfortunate and I tried to forgive it for a couple of episodes, but it’s truly a slap in the face to the world that Robert Jordan created.

Thoroughly enjoyed the season! Rosamind Pike is incredible as Moraine. 
 

The season was too short for me 😫 but still loved it.

I watched the first few episodes and loved it, but I was high off some potent edibles. I’ll have to rewatch. I have nothing but time, because I’m forced to isolate before I can fly home from Brazil. Pray for me y’all!
