The Wheel of Time

http://io9.com/the-real-story-about...aire-1684773094

So the pilot for this aired last night. I haven't gotten around to reading the books, but I've got them all on my kindle. I've heard some high praise for this series. Any fans here?

Thanks

No problem, just don't expect much. From what I hear, this was pumped out randomly by Universal late last night in an effort to keep the rights from reverting back to the dead authors estate. Jordans wife and company are apparently pretty pissed, since the rights were supposed to revert back tomorrow (Feb 11).

Let me know what you think when you watch it.

Yeah, read that. Looks like an ashcan copy

Do wish some company like HBO, Showtime or Netflix would buy the rights and produce a high production value series

The books start out pretty decent but then turn into a tedious, mind-numbing mess full of whiny, self-pitying characters interacting with total bitches. I heard Brandon Sanderson did a pretty good job bringing the series to a close after Robert Jordan died but by then I'd long since lost interest. Pity, because just like The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind it had a lot of potential before it was absolutely ruined. Hopefully they do a better job adapting it than they did with The Sword of Truth or The Shannara Chronicles (another series I couldn't be bothered to finish).

There is only one adaptation I am looking forward to because I think it's going to be effing brilliant: The Dark Tower by Stephen King.

I think I made it to 6 or 7 out of a growing horrified fascination, like watching gangrene slowly spread up your leg towards your groin and realising you either amputate your leg or lose something a lot more important to you.

Great, looking forward to see what they do with it.

I remember having to really do a lot of searching just to find the PC game for this. Which is pretty cool IMO, came out in the late 90s and is a FPS type game. You get magic and weapons and stuff.

Looks like this is getting serious


Awesome and not surprising this is going forward, considering how huge the Game of Thrones tv series has become I imagine studios are looking for epic fantasy series to produce shows off of.

Now they only need not **** it up, capture all the good from the books while cutting out the shit.

Can't see this working out to well as a live action television series. GoT works because the fantasy aspects of the series are usually kept to a minimum so they don't have to spend massive amounts of money on effects. But WoT is all about the flashy magic.
