The Wheel of Time

I know nothing of the story or read the books but Iíve heard about lots of excitement from fans. Just watched the first one. I donít know what to think. The first half an hour was really dull but the last part was ok but did look a little cheap although Iím sure it cost a fortune to make.

Juryís out for me.

Dh loved the books, so we are currently watching the 3rd episode... I am a bit bored to be honest... the production values remind me a bit of Merlin/Hercules.

Yes exactly. BBC Saturday early evening quality production.

Watched through the 3 available episodes,

hubby was disappointed... "it was ok I suppose" is not the response of someone who felt it did the books any justice.

Read all the books but a bit dubious about watching the series. From the clip I have seen characters do not match my images. I was intending on re-reading them all again as many many years ago since I started reading them so might just do that.

Will watch this thread to see what others think but if comments dont get better don't think I'll bother.

By the way the books were excellent, apart from the fact when you got to about book 7-8 there seemed to be a lot of filler and the story didn't seem to be moving on much

I've read all the books and been hoping it would be a good version. A shame some of you are underwhelmed.

I think that is it exactly "underwhelmed", it wasn't bad, but could have been so much better.

DH is also a fan of the books and we were going to watch all three episodes Sunday evening...maybe an early evening slot is good for it, rather than a Friday night blockbuster? Seeing others compare to Merlin, which we quite liked for what it was is making me think we won't be getting a Mandalorian or Loki type show that we loved.

Bits of it were. I think that's why it disappointed a bit. But everyone has a different view of things I like to watch, so it might be just how you/he imagined it... (I liked the Mandalorian too)
