I'm not sure how I feel about this, but that's only because I love this series so much, I'm very apprehensive. WOT is about the most diverse saga I've ever read, I don't see why it would need punching up, I know if the core characters don't appear like they do in the books then a lot of folk will be upset. I also wish it wouldn't follow in the Game of Throne footsteps of having gratuitous sex scenes, you can imply without having to be smutty. Something closer to Stranger Things, scary and tense without outright soft porn on display.
I am excited for this to come to TV but I'm also worried that it could be The Last Jedi all over again, I don't need this to divide another fandom.
Still, benifit of the doubt is very much in play and I can't wait to see what they come up with, just don't mess it up ?
