  1. Elaida points out Rand's skin color is different from other Two Rivers people when she pulls his sleeve back. (It's obvious she knew what she'd find based on his height and hair color).
  2. Yep. Basically the Aiel are the most pale people in the world when they aren't constantly in the sun, and Rand thinks to himself Aviendha is really pale where the sun doesn't hit her. A paragraph from the book saying that Emond's Fielders are darker than Rand where the sun doesn't touch doesn't show that the Emond's Fielders aren't White, given EVERYONE has darker skin than non tan Aiel. That's like saying anything warmer than an ice cube is on fire. On the flip side, there is no definitive statement showing they are all Caucasian/White, either. So the TV show can really do whatever they want
  3. I think it'd be better if Mat looked a little more like the other 3 but as long as Rand is the only redhead, and the rest of the Aiel are redheads, it doesn't matter a whole lot.
  4. What a disaster that would have been.
  5. I don't know why I keep thinking about it or why I think it relates, but in Deathly Hallows I when Hermione is telling the story of the Hallows, they made a cartoon out of it and it worked great. When I think of scenes like the box, I think they can actually visualize the power. Not as weaves coming from Rand but kind of how I pictured it in my mind when reading it. The knots aren't seen but they could show them somehow, in a Sci-Fi way. Or maybe even show the Aes Sedai in some cloudy/hazy bad ass looking way as he defeats them. Then show him in the box straining, then the chest ex
  6. I think they will make a huge deal out of the procession of Logain and the Aes Sedai and that would be enough. Especially if it's the first introduction of Aes Sedai besides Moiraine. The idea of the Aes Sedai changed a lot once we knew more than one of them. But yes they can add in some back story as well, maybe make us aware that Siuan exists.
  7. Someone made a good post on this in one of the bigger threads that was much more thorough, but I thought it would make a good topic on its own. Most of my guesses are going to be short and sweet. We have titles for episodes 1-4 and 6 so far. 101. Leavetaking - I'm hoping this will be a longer episode, at least an hour and a half. Seems like a lot of time should be spent introducing the main characters, but clearly by the end of the episode they must either be fleeing the Two Rivers or, possibly but less likely, fleeing the farm and heading to the Two Rivers.
  8. This nails my feelings on it. I don't think anyone should feel guilty or think it's privilege thinking the characters are Caucasian, or argue that because some of the actors aren't Caucasian that the book characters MUST be non-Caucasian too and they were wrong all along. The books don't explicitly state either way, and there are several examples of RJ complaining about height and eye color and hair color in the artwork. He never complained about his main characters being whitewashed - I would think that would have pissed him off. To me, it doesn't matter who they cast for the TV show as lo
  9. I find it odd that in a conversation about TV rating you bring these up. These would barely be PG-13. We don't *see* Egwene's torture. Rand is fully clothed, just suffering. Rating is usually for visuals, not for tragic horrible crap that isn't gory.
  10. I don't think anyone thinks Min should be cut. People are just being realistic and trying to think of possibilities for what the TV show might do, and Min has been mentioned because Rafe said Rand isn't going to have 3 women. I don't think that means those characters won't be there, though. If Min isn't the woman they choose for Rand, she can still be one of his best friends. And having her in the show makes sense because she brings suspense with the negative things she predicts. Loial is much more likely to be cut because although he is a beloved character the main par
  11. I think you covered that the time period that closely resembles WoT times had violence, but the time period that resembles GoT is even worse. My thoughts on the general topic of rating are that in WoT more of the gory details are glossed over. In GoT we get details of seemingly ever awful thing that happens.
  12. Hey, stupid people do exist in real life ?
