  1. I saw that. So something is not lining up. We apparently are not on hiatus until April. What is going on??
  2. I agree. Although it seems like there is a slight chance for a surprise good announcement, because why would they just say NOTHING about bad news...? It seems like they should a often the blow a little by letting us know what to expect...
  3. I agree. Why all the radio silence on this?
  4. I agree with Thrasymachus (as I usually seem to) that a big worry is having enough popularity to get a nice length to the series. Streamers see more benefit in starting new series to drive subscriptions (that are cheaper than long running shows). Only the mega hits seem to persist. Fingers crossed. The Shannara series was rough, I couldn’t make it through the second season. From everything I am seeing this will be much better, but in truth so much has to align to get a mega hit that will have staying power. Again, fingers crossed. I’m sorry to see that it may have a further delayed r
  5. I haven’t really heard any updates on this topic. I saw more speculation on dusty wheel, but just rehashing the wot series scoop and Daniel Greene info. I would love to hear something more concrete. I really want it to be mainly done, but in terms of anything concrete it’s just been crickets. It does occur to me that the time they got back in Prague is maybe roughly what they lost from the original schedule, but maybe COVID really slowed things down even after they got back.
  6. I like how you think! Wouldn’t that be great!?! I bet they tighten down on too much more excitement until release is sooner. Grr.
  7. I like your 3 different possibilities and think the first two both seem very plausible to me. The third can go along with the first two to some degree. Very well thought out. I can't wait to see this series! There is always this relationship with outsized expectations leading to let down. I have been trying to manage my expectations, but it has proved futile. I am VERY excited for this. I'm hoping its more of a Q1 release, but wont be surprised by Q3/4.
  8. I love the idea of black and white with muted character colors!
  9. I love this point and totally agree that the main focus MUST be the characters rather than checking endless boxes of places and events. A big reason GOT was so great we’re the fascinating characters. My biggest hope for a successful series is doing the characters really well.
  10. I have been so impatient to hear concrete updates on resumption of filming. Especially after hearing about Witcher and Carnival Row etc. Marcus Rutherford posted some emoji’s to suggest he’s back on location, but nothing concrete from anyone that I’ve seen. I compulsively look for info on updates for this show, I just need to chill and forget it for 6 months...
  11. I was trying to decide what set game of thrones apart so much to make it so compelling and so incredibly successful and watched. The good writing and acting and source material are the easy answers, but as we all know, source material doesn't guarantee a great compelling TV series. The high budget with very good sets and costumes and locations. Special and practical effects that look real and add rather than detract. One of the most compelling things is the fantastic and nuanced characters. WOT series seems to have good acting and budget and sets etc. We already know the source material
  12. After reading LOTS of speculation on various sites, there is some REALLY well thought out advice and pretty strong opinions. I suppose Rafe needs to tune it out and stick to his vision and be informed by those on his team and trusted advisors etc. I suspect most of the advice either aligns or doesn’t and it’s really too late for most to affect production anyway. That being said: I have heard a variety of guesses on how mature the content will be. I admit there are examples of well done less mature fantasy series (LOTR). Often fantasy series tend to appear low budget (this appar
  13. Great video! For people on this forum it’s mostly stuff they know, but it is a perfect video for me to show friends who haven’t read the books to get them excited for the show!
  14. I hadn’t thought about it, but I agree it will be difficult for the TV show to keep the tension through the power creep. I guess a middle ground may be found. It will be really interesting to see what they do ere for the tv series.
  15. Love the idea of these combinations. Realistically the show will have to be VERY successful to go this long, and I really hope it is!
