  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. Since the title o the first episode is "Leavetakings" and Leavetaking is the tenth chapter in TEOTW it might include the prologue and the 10 first chapters in a double (~2hour) episode.
  3. Rafe posted some incouraging stuff. Stay tuned for possible news at SDCC.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. Now I know what to wish in my next letter to Santa Claus. Timing seems about right as well.
  9. A nice effort with limited means. One problem 1 chapter > 20 minutes 53 chapters > 1000 minutes (~17 hours)
  10. I think the weaves should be invisible until the main characters can see them. In a movie/tv-series that would mean that up until about half way of TGH it would be invisible. Then the audience would be able to see the flows and weaves at the same time as the main characters. Maybe there could be some small glimpses here and there prior to that. As to the actual look of the weaves I agree with the colour coding mentioned earlier.
  11. Any idea of when "The wit of the staircase" documentary will be released? What state of production is it in?

  13. 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.
