  1. I would like to ask Rafe, So what if Rand is in love with three women and they all love him? It's NOT polygamy because he doesn't marry them. Supposedly he's all for polyamorous relationships, so leave them be. And if they're so worried about people being offended by polygamy, does that mean they will do away with it among the Aiel? And the idea that Jordan hinted at Elayne and Aviendha being romantically involved is absolutely ABSURD. They become first sisters, which would make that akin to incest! Now that's offensive!
  2. LMAO!! The last time he just asked for people to submit questions about Rosamund Pike. If he makes it that narrow, it won't leave much room for other news. I know production companies like to keep as much under wraps as possible, but I think it's time for Amazon to throw us a couple more bones!
  3. Half the books are exposition! or at least it feels that way.
  4. Totally agree about Moiraine. There's no way they're going to have her out of the story for 3 seasons or thereabouts. Which of course will mean they will have to create a whole lot of story arc for her that doesn't exist. I see her taking the place of some of the other sisters, such as the ones in Ebou Dar who are supposed to assist Elayne and Nyaneave. I'd say Siuan already has a pretty big role with the rebel Aes Sedai. Would definitely like to see more of Elyas! Anyway, the show writers know the endings for all the characters, so every change they make can be made with that in mind, instead of having to force the characters to fit the end of the story.
  5. Your point is well made, and I think all of us felt that to some degree, some more than others. But part of the problem was that the show outpaced the source material. Another problem was that D&D just apparently decided they could write the characters better than Martin did. As they were quoted saying, they did something because creatively to them it made sense, not because it made sense in the context of the larger story. With WoT, the entire series has been written, so no worries about running out of source material. And who's to say that Rafe Judkins will do the same thing that D&D did? Of course there will be changes made, but is there some reason that they will be so large that as you say : I'm not saying you're wrong, just that I haven't heard enough to believe it will necessarily the case. Is there something specific on which you are basing your judgement?
  6. Given they are set to start filming in Sept or Oct (forget), I'm expecting to start being bombarded with casting news VERY SOON NOW! Or at least I certainly hope so. It's like announcing Pike was a tease, and now they're keeping the others secret.
  7. So of the two options, you seem to be more in favor of dropping the Seafolk? I think they are an interesting culture the would be better expanded than dropped. Not to mention, for those who are concerned about ethnic diversity, they would all be very dark skinned. If they dropped the Bowl of the Winds they would have to come up with another way of dealing with the weather. Fixing the weather is important. It is the second time the Dark One used weather as a means to harm the world, and both times he was eventually his attempts were overcome.
  8. Yeah, but how cool would it be if he could? I would imagine the casing director would be like "how much do you want?" He's quite talented indeed.
  9. Well, I'll be darned! Not bad. 😜 Quite good actually, and he plays the piano as well! Now if he can just play the flute and the harp... Check out this fan casting site. Someone actually chose Rosamund Pike for Moiraine! https://www.mycast.io/stories/the-wheel-of-time
  10. But can Hugh Laurie sing? I think Timothy Omundson would be a good choice for Thom. For Logain, I would like Aidan Turner. He's got the looks, the talent and he's a good brooder.
  11. I agree he'd be the epitome of Rand if Rand was much older. I've thought of him myself. Anyway, he's busy with Outlander.
  12. The only part of that I see as being a problem is the spanking, which they would cut anyway.
  13. I get your point about emphasizing an element that already exists. But although the actual culmination of Moiraine and Thom's relationship doesn't occur until Towers of Midnight (not quite the end), the feelings develop well before that; like I pointed out earlier there are hints in earlier books. So to have her and Siuan as lovers while at the same time developing feelings for Thom just doesn't work well to me. It feels awkward. Not to mention there is Siuan's relationship with Gareth, and both women end up bonding the men they love for their new warders. Assuming the show writers keep those two romantic relationships in the show, I think it defeat the purpose of including homosexual relations in the show. Egwene making Gawyn her warder but not being in love with him would serve the same purpose to the story as their romance does, because that bond is just as strong as that between lovers. (He could still be in love with her though.) I have yet to hear anyone say they like their romance. Either way, they would be making someone gay who is not in the books.
  14. Yeah, really! Such a good actor to kill off so soon.
