  1. I agree that Min must be in the series. Maybe she isn't my favorite character but she's far from the worst. However more importantly she has significant roles to play in the series. First you have the foreshadowing and narrative aspects (which are significant) as well as her unique personality. Her forshadowing abilities are really important when you experience the story the first time. It's only after you've read/heard/(future seen) it that you talk about cutting the character. Second and most important. Min's relation with Rand have some very thematic and psycological things going for it. The number 3 is psycologically a significant number. If Rand have 2 women loving him it's not much different from a traditional love triangle about who he loves most and who would care about that question for more than one or two seasons. There's not enough continuing contact between Rand and the women in big parts of the series to make it an interesting story point without the intriguing mystery and talking points. That's my opinion anyway.
  2. Rafe posted some incouraging stuff. Stay tuned for possible news at SDCC.
  3. There is a business sence if they want to drastically increase their streaming subscribers. If they get 20 million new subscribers worldwide with a $10 monthly subscription they'll get 3,6 billion dollars a year for their new subscribers. If you consider that LOTR will go on for 5 years then there's plenty of dough left for the other Projects. I think Amazon may be doing a big effort to seize a big part of the streaming audience with both Netflix and Disney having their own straming services and are creating a lot of new content. I heard that Netflix were planning to spend 8 billion dollars in 2018 on original material. If Amazon want to be part of the streaming services they have to go big or be left behind.
  4. With all the rumors concerning Amazon picking up the series for a prime show. Do you guys think they will reveal/conirm anything concerning that during JordanCon in a couple of weeks?
  5. It will be 10 years this september since RJ passed away. Will there be any event to acknowledge RJ and his work in association with that?
  6. IMDB is good for movies and tv-series that's done and has been released. It's worthless for upcoming projects. Anyone with a pro membership can add information. Oh and don't trust the scoring of the titles there. There's been too many attempts by die-hard fans to increase their favourite movies scores and down-grade the competition. As an example there was a huge effort by some idiot fanboys to make "The dark Knight" into the highest scoring movie on IMDB, they formed a group of likeminded imbeciles on reddit and they all gave "the dark Knight" the highest score, but in order to make it reach the number one spot they also gave "The godfather" a lot of the lowest score.
  7. Now I know what to wish in my next letter to Santa Claus. Timing seems about right as well.
  8. A nice effort with limited means. One problem 1 chapter > 20 minutes 53 chapters > 1000 minutes (~17 hours)
  9. Any idea of when "The wit of the staircase" documentary will be released? What state of production is it in?
  10. I've figured it out. Demandred is Hoid.
  11. I have read all 13 books in a row 2 times. The individual books have I read between 2 and 10 times. The earlier the book the more reads. The Eye of the World and The Great Hunt have I read 10 times. The Dragon Reborn 9 times and so on. Every time a new book came out I re-read them.
  12. I was doing a book report in my english class. We could choose the book ourselves (with a minimum page count of 200). I had read Tolkien and some other fantasy authors and thought I should pick a fantasy book , if I could find an interesting one. I went to my local library and found "the eye of the world". The cover seemed promising. Since Tolkien had been so poorly translated to my native language I had a tendency to prefer reading the books in the original language. Then it's only my comprehension that filters the contents and the book is not filtered via a translation (which can affect the feel of a book sometimes). I read the first book in three days and was completely astounded by it. I looked at the library but they had not purchased book 2 and 3 (only three books of the series had been published at the time). I couldn't leave it at that. I had to find out the continuation and end of the story. I asked the library to get the other books, but that would take a while. I therefore got to the nearest SF/F bookstore and bought the first three. I re-read the first book and then read the other two. When "The Shadow Rising" came out I read that at once and thought the new scope was amazing. I couldn't wait to learn how the series would end. Well it's been a long wait.
  13. I'd have to be the Amyrlin because I am of all ajahs and none. But since that option isn't available. I'd choose the blue ajah. I am on a life and death quest to get as many of my friends as possible to read WoT and thereby save the world from eternal damnation.
  15. Because of a temporary low financial situation, I think I'll wait until the last one is finished. I bet they will publish them in a special 14 part set (for a small fortune).
