This has already started showing on Prime Video, new Episodes on Friday. I never read the books as I hadn’t heard about them until this Amazon series was in production. One of my coworkers has read most of the books and so I am giving it a watch. There’s a lot to absorb but so far the show is pretty good. The special effects are well done.

I am enjoying it. As per usual much better than critics thought.

Yeah, I don't understand a lot of the hate I've been hearing about this. Can we move past comparing every big-budget epic fantasy to Game of Thrones and enjoy it on its own merits? Can folks who read decades-old sci-fi/fantasy series get over expecting a nearly 1:1 visualization and retelling of the main story and characters? Every episode of Wheel of Time, as long as they are, has left me wanting more. I was especially impressed with the production design now that we've seen the White Tower. Or maybe I'm just too easy when a trillion-dollar company takes sci-fi/fantasy seriously enough to put on a production like this?

I watched the first episode, and part of the second.

So far it seems to be very close to "The Eye of the World" from when I read it back in the mid 90's.

The beginning of Winter's Heart (book 9) was a far as I ever read, as I got tired of the story going no where, and seemingly headed to no conclusion (a fear born out by the author dying before finishing the series).
