Black Tower Roll Call - October 2018

It's a new month!  You know the drill...

This month....  The Wheel of Time TV show has gotten an official greenlight from Amazon.  (And there was much rejoicing.)

 

What scene or moment (try not to get ULTRA SPOILERY for those who have not read through to the end, if you will) are you most looking forward to seeing on the screen?  

 

Yeah, I know it's hard to pick.

 

I'm going to go with "I didn't come here to win.  I came here to kill you."  

 

For two reasons.  One, it's the pinnacle of BAMFness from my favorite character in the Wheel of Time.

 

And two, it would mean that the show was high enough quality and popular enough that we got the entire series, and that would make me very happy.

Hello, I am here in the shadows...barely responding to anything :)

 

I'd love to see something with Aiel battles or whenever Perrin is fighting (Two Rivers, wolfpack stuff, etc.)

Here.

 

How can I choose a single scene? I´m reading The Fires of Heaven again and the scene that I´m looking forward to is the one where Moiraine really shows how much she is willing to sacrify to getting Rand to the Last Battle.

Here even though I missed last month!

 

That's really hard, but I'd say for specific scenes, a lot of the battles toward later in the series with Mat and Rodel, I think would be super cool.

 

I'm also really excited to see the early books in general, as it really hits the nostalgia the hardest for me, and the early stuff I think is the least likely to have a lot of changes.

I've already posted at length on Tumblr and Facebook about my reasons for not watching the show when it comes out, so I won't trouble you all with it here. But I do intend to watch the Dumai's Wells scene on YouTube.

I'd think the scenes I'd look forward to the most would be those between Rand and Tam, especially later.  Those would be so touching.  Tam's got to be one of the most significant people in the WoT--he might even be the second to Rand--even if we very rarely see him.  I would have loved to have his PoV occasionally--I can't imagine how worried he must have been seeing what his son was going through.  He is so incredibly (if indirectly) pivotal to the ending.

Going to pick from the first book, otherwise I wouldn't be able to pick. Really looking forward to when Rand meets Queen Morgase or when Lord Agelmar telling Nynaeve and Egwene about Lan and the history of Malkier.

In before the thread is locked and eager to see any scenes that don't deviate from the book. My experience in watching shows made from books is that there will be few. Perhaps the Golden Crane will fly for Tarmon Gai'don without much turbulence, though.

    • My issue with increasing congress to that size is  A) Nothing gets done in there as is and  B) I dont want to pay 46 million more dollars a year to those vipers, not including whatever insurances, lifetime pensions, healthcare and security details they get. I already thinks its ridiculous they get paid during the shutdown, completely, while government employees are forced to work without pay.
    • how can i remove it? or could you do it for me?
    • Sure, I'll post this  again:       The data for the graphs is currently 2 election cycles old (it was run off 04 and 08) but the points stand...though it would be interesting to redo the graphics with 16 and 12 results.   Secondarily, if the porposals listed (somewhere) about "fixing congress" by increasing the size of the body (to somewhere around 800, I forget) would also help by creating more (and distributing more evenly) electoral votes around the country, or more modest proposals to award electors proportionately would also help.   The danger here is the logic of either; system is broken, why fix it or system has always worked (even though it's been broken the whole time), so don't fix it.      The best part of the video is the path to the presidency with 22%  (or said differently, a president could win if 78% of the people voted against them) of the vote, which is, um, not a fair/just/equitable/local/whatever word you want to use system at all.

    • I’ve never really liked the argument that one’s vote counts less using a percentage based on total population to EC votes when comparing states because that’s not how the EC is supposed to work.   Its not a perfect system but I don’t think it’s awful. I’d like to move away from the winner-take-all system the majority of states use, but I dislike the idea of using a straight up NPV tally.
    • As for impeachment; we don't have any hard (or direct) evidence of him committing crimes while in office, and we don't have any hard (or direct) of him committing crimes to get into office, but there is a lot of circumstalial and unproven evidence of both in the public domain.
