Amazing first 3 episodes of the show. I can’t wait to see more.

As an outsider looking in (i.e. someone who has not read the books) I really enjoyed watching this show. First episode started slow (maybe not in energy but there's only so much battle scene one can watch until it starts to get boring) and now it feels like the show has evened out and we understand the context of the story and the dragon.

I was just starting to get into it though and the next episode isn't out until next week. I should have just waited and binged it when it's all out lol

I really didn't like what they did with Perrin's Two Rivers life and Abell Cauthon but at least for Perrin, by episode 3, I can see the narrative choice - it gives something more for the 'Ember Eyed Man' (who hasn't been named in the show yet, and even with double spoiler shielding here, I'm playing safe) to torture Perrin with in his dreams. Still sucks we didn't get to see the Luhhans, though. Also wish they'd chosen a different name than 'Laila' for this new wife - it's a bit similar to, well, if you know you know.

Backstory twisting aside, I can appreciate the other narrative changes for the sake of brevity and audience understanding. It's honestly just so surreal that The Wheel of Time is on my television. Read the books as a teenager and cough well over a decade later, it's in front of my eyes.

I've really enjoyed this so far - the characterisations have been really good and Thom was just perfect here. I have read the first 3 of the books in the last year so am fresh on both and I think they've done a really good job adapting it.

One of the things I love so much about this series is how much you despair in the ineptitude, boorishness and general git behaviour of Rand, a character position that you normally support in a series. It's nice to see the TV show stating true to that.

I am struggling seriously with the picture quality though, it seems like it's been shot on grainy 35mm then had HDR enhancements thrown on top and then compressed to hell. It's a crying shame.

Do they really believe that the professor can play a 20 year old boy?

This episode adapts one of the most surprising and memorable moments from the first book. I really liked what they did with it, tbh. This adaptation is incredibly competently written. Too bad about the CGI.

That was pretty boring. Can Moiraine wake up already and do some cool stuff again?

Absolutely nothing happened in this episode

It’s been so long since I read the books I’m watching this as essentially a novice to the story. I think the first three episodes have been pretty good, the CGI is top notch, the characters are starting to develop and I think we’re in for a good fantasy show. I was devastated when Tom Bombadil was not in the Lord of the Rings but when a book series is as vast as Wheel of Time, there will be decisions made that sees significant chunks of the books excised. Watch for the story to unfold and enjoy the adventure, you won’t be disappointed.
