Shame on You in Wheel of Time TV Show Posted Wednesday at 05:39 PM Hi Annilori, while you're entitled to your opinion, I'd like to share the counter argument that the upcoming TV show is an adaptation. There's no possible way that Robert Jordan's books could be faithfully adapted "own to the stubble of Perrin's beard." I happen to know some of the people involved in the show personally. These talented people care deeply about the books. It changed many of their lives for the better. Harriet and Brandon are involved and all offer their blessing. Harriet is giddy with excitement over the casting. It's OK to be disappointed and it's OK to not watch the show. The books will forever remain unchanged. But please don't buy into the false hype that this show is somehow motivated by anything other than trying to share an incredible story. If it helps, think of the show as a fresh turn of the Wheel: the 3rd Age of the books has gone and left, the Wheel has turned, and the Age has come again. With its new coming, the same events play out, but some things are different, some faces are new, but the overall story repeats.
