  1. Frodo Baggins was around 3 to 4 feet tall. Elijah Wood is only 5'-6" tall. Aragorn is 6'-6". Vigo Mortensen is only 5'-11".
  2. There's only so many characters they can really introduce in the first season that are major players. We're likely to see other characters who become major players later, potentially recast. Combine this with generating hype. If they do a batch-release of actors and roles. The hypes done. Same with set photos. We're still at least basically a year out before the release of the first episode. Gotta keep that hype train going.

  4. Is the genre Thriller, or Biography? (This should be the last of the genres! lol)
  5. Whatever movie that is, it's one of like three Tom Hanks movie I haven't seen... lol
  6. I'll have to look that one up. The only reference to apple trees I found was about an Orchard. Yes... But did you read the rest of my post? I wasn't saying that was all Ta'Veren....
  7. The way I understand it, is the wheel, and ages are quite literally cyclical. In our world, science, physics, we have big-bang, hundreds of millions of years, evolution, bringing us to the point in time we are now. In RJ's world, Time is literally a circle. It is non-linear. If every age were 10,000 years, after a full turn of the wheel, the first age, would look just like the prior first age. There would obviously minor differences. Little things here and there. But if you were somehow able to time-travel into the far off future, and arrive during your time-frame in the age you currently are, you may not know the difference. Names probably change. Small details are different. But Rand would be reborn as Rand, on Dragonmount in this 3rd age, and the next 3rd age. This is a quote from an interview RJ gave, that was archived over at theoryland. https://www.theoryland.com/intvsresults.php?kw=ages We don't know exactly how long ages are, whether his universe is like ours with a Big Bang, millions of years of evolution followed by a entropy & a big crunch. Or if his universe is similar to the biblical one, where the earth was created 13,000ish years ago. I like to think of it like this.
  8. Schrödinger's cat. Physics Easter Egg from RJ, whom had a degree in Physics. Unless I'm thinking of another event. He didn't revive a dead tree. He walked through an Orchard, and reversed the DO's taint on the apples. Apples which were immediately rotting as soon as they were ripe. You should really check out Theoryland's interview database. https://www.theoryland.com/intvsresults.php?kw=ta'veren Ta'Veren is just part of it, but it's not the only reason events like that happen. Now reference back to my original comments. His physical and mental health are both literally tied to the land, in adition to being a Ta'Veren. It's something unique to Rand, like being a wolf brother is unique to Perrin, or being a lucky gambler is unique to Mat. Rand is literally tied to the land. His Ta'Veren nature warps the probability of crops spoiling or producing an abundance. It tips the balance of harvested grain spoiling, infested with rats, or remaining pristine. Similar, Mat's Nature as Ta'Veren warps probability of Odds, and Perrin's ability to sway people to his side. (Rand does both, only with brute Force.) Ta'Veren nature typically warps probability in the Ta'Veren's favor. I described his effect on the land as similar to a bubble of evil, because unlike Ta'Veren, a bubble of evil defies probability and creates the impossible. We have a few things going on here. 1) The land didn't truly start to go bad, until after Rand's injury. It's hard to say, was the DO actively making the land rot? Or was he using Rand's connection to the land, to make the land Rot? Or both? 2) DO's bubbles of evil. I don't know if we know if the DO can control them, or make them do what he wants. But these things caused all kinds of havoc on the land. I'm sure plenty of bubbles caused grain to spontaneously rot. 3) Rand's Ta'Veren nature, leads to weird things happening with the land. Crops suddenly not producing, to crops unnaturally bountiful. Grain spoiling for no reason, rats just devouring. To Grain that got flooded is perfectly fine. Wherever Rand went, weird things happened like that, and It wasn't always 50/50 good/bad.. 4) When Rand was basically reborn on Dragonmount, his physical and mental state were effectively healed. The land was healed. It's entirely plausible that the land itself started to heal. But the damage was already done. Where Rand Walked after Dragonmount, the Land around him, almost in a Bubble of Good, did the impossible, and full-stop reversed/healed the damage dealt. Do we know how much of that was Ta'Veren? How much was this land-connection? Probably not. There was a reason I mentioned Rand and King Arthur.. Whom was also the Fisher King. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisher_King

  10. I've heard netflix is going to be partnering with Nickelodeon. Which means my 90s cartoon nostaligia is torn between the two services. 😉
