The Daily Trolloc (83)

Wheel of Time TV News
Last weeks WoTWednesday post by Rafe is so disturbing that Narg needs to preface it with a warning...If you have any foals around make sure they can't see your screen...

Clearly the writers' assistant is stuck in the 70's or 80's mindset, that smoking is associated with coolness and's not! Smoked meat and Tar filled lungs are horrible to eat and Narg is very disappointed that Rafe would help perpetrate a stereotype that has the potential to spoil food sources for Narg! Lift your game Rafe, lift your game!

Brandon Sanderson had a little bit to say about the show in his recent newsletter, which you may or may not find pleasing...
However, it’s not the last you’ll see of the Wheel of Time, because the Amazon show is progressing really well. I’ve read the first two scripts, and was pleased with them—and I think very highly of the team working on the project. Once filming starts, I’ll make sure to stop by the set and grab you all some photos. For now, it’s time to start getting excited, because after lots of waiting and many false starts, this one is actually happening.

Nae'Blis takes a look at TV Ratings and the direction he thinks the WoT show will take: (If you're like Narg and hate ads...skip to around the 2 minute mark as that's when it really starts...also contains spoilers)

Narg has seen Nae'blis comment about the the curses/swear words sounding corny before, and that modern day ones should be used as well. INO, they will only sound corny if the actors make them sound unnatural and forced. If they deliver them with the same emphasis that they do with modern day exclamations/interjections, then the corny factor should be diminished and virtually disappear after a few repetitions, just like they do in our heads when reading.

As to introducing modern day language...Narg hopes they don't go down that path. TV doesn't need to be "fuck this, fuck that" to be entertaining or realistic. The Walking Dead has managed quite well without having it, and the same goes for graphic sex scenes.

If the writers choose to insert those things into WoT, then INO, they are basically saying that they don't think that the underlying story and or their ability to convey it, is good enough to stand on its own without the need for "cheap thrills".

Narg has nothing against "cheap thrills" btw👀.

HBO have been putting out videos to pimp the final season of GoT. The VFX one is worth a watch as it gives an indication of how WoT will be brought to life using visual effects:
