  1. Having been a D&D nerd in my youth, I genuinely see your point here. To be honest though, I hate those LOTR scenes just as much! I should have made mention of that in my post. The LOTRs trilogy is brimming with exactly the same over played and unrealistic exposition. I will admit that in a movie there is far less time to set these things up and introduce characters. But in the context of a multi-season series such as this, I see it as totally unnecessary. I appreciate your pushback though.
  2. Ya but it was the bar that seemed to feel awkward... The strangers walked in like something from an anime cartoon.
  3. Though I didn't have an issue with that part, I understand exactly what you mean about "Sword of Shannara" ... For me it was L&M's intro. My thoughts exactly!
  4. I agree. I just can't get past that entrance scene... uughh... But you're right! It's the only part that, as you say, could have been better. I think I bumped up against it so much on 1st viewing that It kind of took over my overall opinion. Thanks to you, and others, I'm seeing the forest through the trees now. Lets see what the full episode says. Though I still have trouble trying to see how that entrance can really satisfy, even in context. We shall see.
  5. I totally agree and thanks for making the point. I really should have closed with that. 2 minutes out of a 60 minute narrative is hard to judge.
  6. Just watched it again and I'm even more impressed by the set and feel. Your comment about well done character aspects is spot on... I didnt even notice Tam until your reply. Rand and Perrin look great and sound really natural. I like the look of Moiraine and Lan, I'm just unimpressed by their exposition... It came off cheesy and overplayed. the whole component of their entry, including Nynaeve. The dialogue felt clunky. Having said that, you opened my eyes to some impressive aspects I didnt notice efore
  7. Ya I just re-watched it and edited my post as a result. Ya there is no difference. My ears weren't working I guess. I thought Perrin had an American accent on my first viewing. My ad on that one.
  8. While I agree on the setting being absolutely fabulous, I thought the entrance of L&M was over dramatized. Lan walks in and just stands there like a statue (dramatic pause) "Who are you stranger" ? slowly drops the cowl... Set and atmosphere A+ directing and characters C

  10. Respectfully, please stop trolling! Its the second time you have trolled an opening topic Ive posted.
  11. As far as individuals go, I think Lanfear, Moridin, Aginor, Graendal, Moghedian for sure and maybe Asmodian.
  12. Thanks for the repeat. I started the post to ask our Dragonmount family a question and engage with those opinions. I have no decided opinion as of yet. I wanted YOUR opinion my friend!
  13. Personally I cant see all of these antagonists making the cut. There are just too many of them for a screen adaptation. Who will make the cut? Why, how and when? thoughts?
  14. I like the way you roll! Ive imagined that scene since I first read it. So epic, and quixotically, immersive.
