The Wheel of Time TV Series Season One (Narg's Version)

Narg is currently betting/hoping on the Wheel of Time TV Series being a co production between Sony and Amazon, so season one is split into ten 45-55 minute episodes, which seems to be the norm for Amazon originals. Please note, Narg is using "scene" loosely...

Episode 1 

Chapters 1-5

Scene 1: (Voice over) " The Wheel of Time turns, and ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legends fade to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the third age by some, an Age yet to come, an age long pass, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings or endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning."

Notes: Action packed episode, One Power being used in Battle, Mat taking the Dagger, Mashadar, another clue about Rand and the group being split up. A good place to have a mid-season break if the show isn't on Amazon or Netflix.

A good place for Narg to take a breather as well. You may have noticed Narg has cut out the prologue. Narg did this as apart from it being tainted by Winter Dragon being aired, Narg also thinks that it's not necessary as the first few chapters give us some background info on the breaking and it will save money that can be used on the OP usage in episode 5.
