Eh not enough source material, they should make a two hour film instead.

Think it'll be as good as MTV's take on The Shannara Chronicles?

If they condense the middle four or five books into one episode, it may be good. I love the series, but there is only so much braid tugging, and Perrin hating his axe I can take.

I was a huge Robert Jordan fan and read the series until he died.  I'd love to see a tv series about the books.  I'd finally find out how it ends...lol.

As you may or may not know, Brandon Sanderson finished the series and did a damned fine job IMO. Sanderson's Mistborn and Stormlight series are excellent reads.

So hours upon hours of adolescent minded opposite gender hating and Tar Valon.

Meh, I'd watch.

A visual of magical weaves would probably look stupid on film.  And no weaves would make it hard to appreciate what's going on.

Whoever did Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series did a horrible job.  Shannara Chronicles has been much better so far with, of course, Game of Thrones blowing them all out of the water (even if they don't follow the books).  So there is hope that this will be good.

Agreed that Brandon Sanderson did an excellent job completing the series.

Highly mediocre source material, no character development.

Yawn.

yes at least goodkinds stupid whore harem were just assassins.

and at least WOT didn't have the main character always be the best at what ever problem came up, it was like the character needed to be a mid wife well he just so happened to be a magical midwife and could deliver babies in space.

both series started out good with decent first books then ended up retarded when the authors couldn't figure out how to wrap up all the plots and filler they milked out of the series.

i have a feeling G.R.R at least has a pretty much complete outline of how his story is going to go.

I tried reading it, just never really enjoyed the series much. It's been so long since I tried I can't really remember why.
Link Posted: 4/21/2017 9:46:04 AM EDT
The books were like a million pages each, one series is barely going to cover an entire chapter

She'd better be, the books described her as being quite attractive. Lanfear would be a casting nightmare though, she's basically the hottest woman to ever live by story canon.

I started out really disliking Nynaeve, but she really changed through the books, and by the end was pretty damn awesome.

Egwene went the other direction.

I know, but I can't think of an actress outside A-listers like Natalie Portman or Emma Watson that could pull off Moiraine's combination of delicate, feminine beauty and wisdom.  The chick who played Amberle in Shannara has the look, but I don't buy her as wise.  It is a hard combo to get in a modern actress.

Dude.  Brandon Sanderson saved the shit out of that series.  I'd been reading it since the second book was first released in hardback, if that gives you any idea of the timeline and from about book 7 on it was nothing but dreck and ass-flavored ass.  Just ass piled on top of ass, like a veritable Dragonmount of Ass where Lews Therin broke the worlds ass and thrust the mighty spire of ass skyward with a level of detail oriented suck not seen since.

Read the last three books.  Sanderson made the series fun again.

It felt rushed to me. It felt like Jordan wanted at least 2-3 more books out of the series.
