  1. The more I think about it, with the apparent audio-looping, I think this is probably not finalized audio pulled from a finished scene. Possibly a mash-up of sound effect snippets they intend to use for a specific scene, but not a final cut. It just seems too jumbled; the background voices are too wild/panicky to be Bel Tine, yet not fearful enough to be Winternight. When the show premiers, and we hear Egwene and Perrin deliver these actual words—which may well be finalized versions—the background track could be drastically different.
  2. I might have a been a little unclear: I don't think this particular graphic is what Weaving will look like. I mean, it might, but I doubt it. My thought was more that, since they put this much creativity into a small promotional graphic, they are hopefully putting a lot more creativity into the Weaving CGI, which I would expect to be markedly different in appearance. If anything, though, like Elder_Haman just sort of alluded to, this could be a precursor/proof-of-concept type of demonstration for how Saidin looks/feels in Rand's mind, which I seem to recall was often described as a
  3. I was more interested in the visual graphic than the audio. I have a lingering concern that the way they depict Weaving on the show is going to look... uninspired. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the plasmic light-sabers in Harry Potter. I remember seeing Harry duel Voldemort for the first time and thinking, 'Huh? Did I miss something in the books? Wand-magic looks like... volcanic plasma? Is it dripping?' And everyone else is shooting photon-blasts at each other from their wands... and that's supposed to be magic? Not good. So, I have been worried that the Weaving is go
  4. I agree with Elder_Haman's belief that the more personal our connection to/understanding of each Forsaken is, the better the show will be. Few stories benefit from having villains that are unknowable shadows lurking in the darkness. But Redgiant also makes a great point, in that you do not have to (nor should they) fully flesh out each of the 13. I know some of this has already been said, but here is how I look at it. My goal is to try to figure how to make it work with all 13, because I do believe that when you start making little changes here and there (regardless of lost-symboli
  5. I wonder about this... On the one hand, if the Dark One is just bringing back every other Forsaken who gets 'killed', is there a legitimate narrative pitfall that this will numb the horror/awe/potency of each resurrection for viewers? And yet, if the Dark One only brings back Ishamael/Moridin, then how much are we really going to fear the Dark One? Isn't he the Lord of the Grave, after all? Why would his power to resurrect be limited to just one of his minions? (I suppose the writers could argue that, since the Dark One is *partially* sealed, he can only bring one person back to life... but st
  6. As a longtime fan of the books, I am beyond excited for this show. Love the casting; I think Rafe, for the most part, says all the right things; locations look great; budget is encouraging. Knowing it is an *adaptation*, I am prepared for and willing to embrace necessary changes, and even some unnecessary ones. We can't have everything we want! The only thing that tamps down my enthusiasm is this lingering doubt regarding what Brandon Sanderson may have been referring to when he bluntly said that the show contains at least one big change that he, for one, was not too thrilled about. (I forget
