  1. Ok got it a middle ground opinion is not welcome here Mr. Moderator and no matter what I say you all are simply going to assume what is in your mind the worst and apply stereotypes where convenient. You all have a wonderful day.
  2. You all want to assume. Fine, let me put it this way. The first red flag I saw was when Rafe said he was eliminating the relationship between Aviendha, Elayne, Min, and Rand. Not because I agree with polygamy but, because it varies drastically from the book and drops a major story line. As long as the writers can point to the books and say we stayed true to what Mr. Rigney wrote, then that is what I am calling for. Now for the sake of argument The other side of this argument could just as easily get angry, and most likely would, since until Mr. Sanderson took over there was no "good" character portrayed as gay or there is also the fact that the entire series assumes peoples gender and uses only two genders. You see my point is simple. Don't pander to anyone. As long as they can say we stuck to the books and only cut what we absolutely had to for time and consistency, then I am on their side.
  3. Dude I never said one whit of whose agenda I wanted left at the door, you brought that up. I want them all left at the door, and the books to be held true to what is written.
  4. Looking for things to hate? This is my favourite book series all I want is a true rendition of the books. I desperately want it to succeed. I understand there will be changes that is why I say rendition not exact copy. It is not asking much for people to leave their politics and social biases at the door in a project like this. There is only one thing I am allowed to hate and it isn't a TV show.
  5. My concern has nothing to do with casting honestly. I think the danger here is the infusion of today's politics and social poison into a series that was not designed to handle that kind of garbage. I don't want to be preached to about anything I want the simple and pure vision that Mr. Rigney envisioned for his magnum opus. Honestly if I start watching, which I will do regardless of what is said between here and release, and I get hit with some sort of preaching about someone's belief system that doesn't have anything to do with the books I will turn it off and inform my friends to not bother watching it.
  6. Hi I have been a fan since about 04 and have kept track of dragonmount but never really used the forums. Hoping to engage in some good conversation.
