I've read them.
It's a pretty show, but I'm disappointed overall.
The casting is bad, the script is bad, and they did change quite a bit.
Rosamand Pike is a good actress, but the lead kid/Rand is awful. It was like, "tall redhead, sign him".
And there are no good looking women.
Egwene and Ninaeve are unattractive.
They better do much better with Elaine when she shows up. She's described in the books as extremely beautiful.
So... I liked the show a lot more before I read the first book. Now I'm confused - they're really adding to certain parts, completely chopping out others, people are meeting at different times (ex - elayne apparently doesn't show up until S2), etc.

Exactly...
And they are facing some full on nerd backlash.
A lot of the stuff they are doing makes no sense.
Like in the very beginning. Perrin does not have a wife in the books. So in the show, they don't explain her or really give her any dialogue, and then whamo with the axe.
I thought it made no sense unless they wanted to show him carry around guilt for some reason. But you didn't make anyone know or care for that character, and she's in it for 5 seconds. Lazy storytelling.

Yeah… I didn’t understand that. And Mat was stealing things and super poor from losing at gambling… but in the books he’s actually extremely lucky and never loses.

I saw Dune in a theater but I suspect that's the last one until the Omicron wave is over. How long until Spiderman is on Disney+?

The real question is how long can we avoid spoilers?

This looks incredible. I'm far more excited about Across the Spiderverse then No Way Home. Can't wait. :slayer:

Hawkeye was one of the few shows I was excited about. Still am!

Mind you, I watched it on a laptop, but it looked like a Marvel movie, and the supporting cast is great. (Vera Farmiga, *that dude from Better Call Saul*). The comic it’s based on (which I haven’t read yet) is also critically acclaimed, so that’s promising.

It’s also — as a hard of hearing student pointed out — the first iteration to address Hawkeye’s growing deafness, something he was genuinely excited about.

I’m enjoying Hawkeye. Stick with it if you only made it to the musical. That barely scratches the surface. Good show.

The musical is, what, 15 minutes into the first episode? It's also pretty obviously deliberately ridiculous, like, Hawkeye walks out of it.


I kind of like the idea of in-universe cultural events based on stuff that's actually happened in the MCU. The Boys does that to hilarious and dystopian effect.
