Filming Wheel of Time to begin September 2019 in Prague (UPDATE: Director of Ep1-2 picked)
News coming out from production outlets.

Nothing has been released officially but its coming down from a few different places that this is the deal.

No casting has been done and they are still in the script writing stage, but it looks like this finally happening.

Let's not go full hyperbole and act like books 7-11 weren't heaping piles of shite.

Let's also try and avoid going full on hyperbole and act like all 5 books you mentioned were "heaping piles of shit" - book 7 was quite good at a minimum.

Even book 9, which was where the story began to get really bogged down, has one of the greatest scenes in the whole series with rand and Nyn and everyone around shadar logoth (not going to risk a spoiler but if you know the series well enough you should know what I'm talking about)

Book 10 was boring but 11 was a turn in the right direction.


Let's also not try and pretend like Martin is batting at 5 for 5 with his installments of ASOIAF.

I think my honest ranking would include about 5 of the 1st 7 as very good to excellent two average to good on, then 8-11 probably includes 2 bad and 2 that were somewhere in the average - good range. I've only read the Sanderson books once so its tough to remember but all were pretty good and the last one was an excellent series wrap (basically just a battle lasting the entire book I think).

So out of a 14 book fantasy series WoT has a pretty solid average working for itself which is pretty comparable to ASOIAF.

Just started Book 1 of the series. Seems like it reall subscribes to classic fantasy tropes so I’m interested to see if that changes. Besides every major chick being a major biotch, been pretty entertained so far.

Well if the bitchy women are a major issue for you then you best just put the book down, cause it only gets worse.

Episodes 1 and 2 have a director! Uta Briesawitz.

She's directed episodes of Stranger Things, Westworld (S2E8, what most people consider the best of S2), Jessica Jones etc. Has an Emmy Nom for cinemotagraphy for Hung and was a cinematographer on The Wire.

Strong resume. Its happening.
