  1. Sarah volunteered at Jordancon for several years, but I don’t believe she was ever active on any forum.
  2. You realize, of course, that turning this thread into a discussion of moderation policy isn’t really making a case that you need it. We have several threads for trailer/ promo reactions. No one is being deprived if we start closing some of the duplicates that have wandered off topic.
  3. Yeah, I’ve been wondering that myself. Maybe the stone is added later? It only makes the ring look worse. 🤷🏻‍♀️
  4. The last ten posts are about Star Wars. Does that mean everyone has completed the discussion here? If so, I’ll close the thread.
  5. Since the “spoilers” are confirmed as false and this thread is just devolving into conspiracy theories, let’s go ahead and close this. If you want to continue the conversation, the Reddit thread is the appropriate place. Thanks.
  6. I hate to break it to y’all, but you did see Rand and Egwene together in the teaser trailer? They are definitely fucking.
  7. If you are comparing budgets and production quality, make sure you are looking at the first few seasons of GOT. The later ones, after it became the biggest thing on TV had budgets similar to blockbuster movies. Think more about the epic battle between the Starks and Lannisters in season one that they never actually showed onscreen. Or the Battle of Blackwater in season two which takes place mostly on a couple yards of beach in the dark because they saved all the budget for a big explosion. HBO did not open up the checkbook for things like Hardhome and the Battle of the Bastards until the show was a proven hit.
  8. Does it look like I pictured it? No. But it looks lived in and real. I’m happy so far.
  9. I would imagine there’s some sort of mutual non disclosure agreement in place. Especially since they are trying to build hype for the show and Amazon doesn’t want anything to distract from that. And Barney doesn’t want anything to disrupt his ability to get work in the future. I’m sure we will find out eventually, but no one has any incentive to discuss it now.
  10. Yeah, my guesses are that they’ve cast Lanfear and Verin.
  11. Movies usually take 18-24 months to produce. I don’t know how it takes for streamers, but a network tv show usually takes about a week. I’m assuming that with location shooting and more complicated effects, it takes longer than that to film an episode of a prestige show like this. But the time involved is very different.
  12. General reaction to a bunch of unsourced bullshit I’ve seen lately regarding the show. You are probably not the only person I’m going to yell at between now and November. You just happen to not deserve it.
  13. No worries. But it’s impossible to tell from your text alone that you were joking.
  14. Then he can come here and tell me himself. I’m getting quite tired of folks making unfounded claims about the tv show production. It’s cool if you don’t think the show looks good, but don’t project your own issues onto the cast and crew.
  15. Yes, this was definitely worth reviving an old year old thread. Very insightful.
  16. Citation please. Since it’s very common for tv shows to have multiple directors over the course of a season you have made an extraordinary claim and I’d like to see your evidence of it.
  17. It’s very common for tv shows to have a different director each episode. Usually the first director establishes the “house style” that the others will mimic for their episodes. Like EH says, it’s to help spread out the work. Directing isn’t just the time on set with the actors and crew, it’s also time spent before shooting where the director goes over the script and breaks down how they plan to shoot it, meeting with producers, writers, etc. It’s easier if you have someone already shooting episode one while you have episode in setting up.
  18. As far as themes of the story, one of the biggest ones isn’t Good vs Evil, it’s duality. So good and evil, man and woman, shadow and light, etc. Notice how many characters seem to have an opposite. Semirhage is like an evil Nynaeve. Perrin has Slayer. When the Tower splits, both the rebel and not rebel groups have Black Ajah Keepers and a Forsaken hiding out. The poster hints at this duality. If you look at the larger version of the poster the clouds behind Moiraine look like a ☯️. I think Rafe does understand the story. He’s just choosing to focus on different aspects of it than we did as readers. And that’s fine. It’s an adaptation, not a transcription. I’ll decide if I like after I see it.
  19. Let’s not bog this down into a bunch of bickering over the casting. It’s done. It’s happening. Not only is it a really bad look for you to constantly complain about the race of characters, it’s BORING. There’s nothing new to add to that conversation. It’s a very dull topic and no one is interested in hearing you complaining anymore. Feel free to complain about the Waygate for a bit. It’s going to get dull eventually, but I’ll let you have that one for now.
  20. Rafe discusses the show a bit and releases a poster and release date. Go nuts.
  21. Those are super cool! Thanks for sharing.
  22. This thread is hilarious. OP is clearly a troll.
