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.

    • Looks like I can still post but I don't have much time to get online. When driving we often lose signal and sometimes the modem here at C's house is spotty (and slow!).   Went to Glacier National Park today. Much of the park was closed due to winter road conditions but we had a good time, spent some quality time together, and got some good pictures.  
    • Hope the interview went well, Lily! 
    • True. It's just when I think tech giant, I think $$$. Wiki is always asking for donations.   In something like this, it's relatively benign example of censorship, even for Wikipedia. It doesn't really change much of anything... The point can be argued either way based upon the way Green Peace was 'founded', and amounts to drama between two or more parties than hard facts. Now when Google censors Anti-Vaxxer propaganda, I tend to care far less about censorship of those ideas...  Because Anti-Vaxxers through their actions/inaction cause death, and harm the public health as a whole. Largely though from my experience, Google looks to be pretty hands off on most things... (Caveat here is, they, like other tech companies are getting pressured to censor anti-vaxxers lately... Thank goodness.)   But then there are times there's soo much data out there, so much information that Google prioritizes the new information over the old information, which makes it difficult to find a similar case with similar actors that happened a year ago, which can and does alter the public sphere on what happened now versus then, making it harder to draw parallels and gauge how the public opinion on such things have changed.   Example, google R. Kelly Lawsuit. How many pages before you get to his 2002 lawsuit?   Probably. All I can gather about it is the guy's been on the outs from Green Peace for awhile because of his stance on climate change, and other stuff. Whether the other founders saw the interview, got mad, de-listed him. Other Green Peacers, or even one of his or other right-wing fans of the shows he was on did it to stir the pot against raging liberals. I dunno. Side Note: I don't agree with him on climate change, but I do agree with him on Nuclear and some other stuff he has said.
