The most important thing in every work, and first of all, is writing, creating and developing characters. I hope everyone will pay attention to that. Let's wait and see what the Show will offer us., I'm waiting ..


Wow. This is just terrible. There's no other word for it other than that. Firstly, the casting is just plain awful. Diversity for the sake of diversity takes its toll yet again, with people being cast into roles with the wrong ethnicity for that particular part. This is even more insulting considering the fact that the world all of this takes place in, already has tons of diversity in it to begin with. Don't shove it in where it doesn't belong! Storywise... ooh boy. So much has been changed. And look, I get that book adaptations need certain elements changed in order to better fit a visual medium. And some changes they made, are fine. But let me just list some things that are completely wrong: The whole concept of the Dragon. The show opens with a very brief description of who the Dragon is. The Dragon is the reincarnation of a male Aes Sedai who broke the world in ages past. Concise, but true. Good enough. But then they go on and say that this reincarnation could be either male or female? That makes no sense at all! The Dragon has to be male, because he's the reincarnation of a male Aes Sedai, and he will break the world a second time, just like he did before. Finding the Dragon. Nobody knows who the Dragon Reborn is. People find out because he starts fulfilling the prophecies written about him just by being born in a certain place and on a certain time. That's how Moiraine narrows it down to the Two Rivers, by finding out about some young people there that fit those criteria. In this adaptation, all Aes Sedai have some sort of spidey sense that can pinpoint the Dragon. Lazy writing at its best. The world itself. It should be winter, due to the Dark One's grasp increasing on the world. This is a big plot point, which causes visible distress with pretty much everyone, affecting their doings and thoughts, and in this adaptation they just dumb it down to "something drove the wolves down the mountain". It's spring in this version, and birds can be heard in pretty much every scene. Characters not acting the way they should. Nynaeve is much too serene, Moiraine isn't serene enough, Egwene is much too mature, Perrin is much too jokey, Mat isn't jokey enough and much too responsible, and so on. Characters' backstories changed to completely change their personality even further. Mat suddenly has abusive parents. Perrin, who is consistently described in the books as a shy, awkward, careful, peaceloving guy, not only has a girlfriend in this adaptation (his finding his first love in Faile Bashere later on is also a huge plot point that they dismissed by doing this), but he murders her in a fit of blind rage. Nynaeve is suddenly a "lost child", just so they could add her to the possible list of nonsensical Dragon candidates. Because suddenly the Aes Sedai spidey sense doesn't work anymore. Rand and Egwene having a full on sexual relationship while they're supposed to be a coming-of-age story that never works out for them. Forced edginess. Nudity and sex scenes, while sparse, are shoved in your face so forcefully that you can just tell one of the producers saw Game of Thrones and told the script writers to shove "some of that" in there. There is a LOT more wrong with this cesspool of an adaptation in terms of story, but those are some of the big ones. Also just overall bad acting and bad CGI. The CGI looks like a videogame from the mid 2010's. I really wanted to like this, but no amount of goodwill can save this absolute mess of a show.


They wanted rings and thrones and got shadow and bones


This was a great series of books, that, in many ways, established a genre. I think it will be a great series, as well. It has the feel of an epic. Amazon has given it a healthy budget and Robert Jordan’s canon is extensive. These first three episodes had to cover a great deal of ground in a very short amount of time but, unlike other commentators, I feel they did it successfully. The characters are engaging. The cast is excellent and their performances are solid. The venues outside of Prague are spectacularly beautiful. Now, we just have to wait for the series to drop episode by episode (my least favourite way to stream). If it keeps this up the ratings should just climb. I give these first three episodes an 8 (great) out of 10. [Fantasy Adventure]


Robert Jordan was the Tolkien of his time. The Wheel of Time series is a fantastic epic and I hope Amazon does it justice. I’ll be updating my review at a later date!


This is an awful adaptation, they left only names and major action events, changing everything else for unknown reason: character personalities, adding characters, scenes, etc. Unbelievable.


This really hurts. They ruined it like most of the new so called fantasy stuff is. The male actor really has his 2021 normal haircut... Did not bother to modify it a bit. And... Arwen allways has perfect make-up. Another series where everyone is a model.


"Cheap fantasy productions" and their "forced diversity" make me throw up. All of the shows like The Shannara Chronicles, Shadowhunters, Wheel of Time, Fate: The Winx Saga etc. are copies of each other. Why don't they stop producing such garbage shows? Same story line, same effects, garbage cast... Why? If you are not going to produce something like Battlestar Galactica or Game of Thrones then don't do it.


I say looks promising but can't judge just from the beginning of the series but We have seen all streaming services trying to adapt novels And ruining them I'd still prefer to watch a movie adaptation of these novels like the harry potter franchise Nevertheless, I guess this isn't too bad. I just hope they don't drop this like any great series that got canceled because of a fund or low rating. If they hold on to it it will maybe be a big blockbuster like Game of Thrones but you know these companies only care about money and not the opinions of people so as an adaptation this looks good but it will need a push from fans and a strong cast to carry it and The trailer was shit, period.


The first episode drew out the story for a long time, until a the last minute a lady who came to town takes four youths with her, because they need to be protected. The stretching things out style of storytelling is not interesting to me. It made me feel like everything they showed before in the episode was pointless. Sort of like the whole episode was time filler.


I have not read the books and I found the first episode so slow and boring I don't know if I want to go on. This whole episode should have been done in 20 minutes. None of the characters grabbed me and the acting is so poor. I wanted to like it, as I'm a huge fan of fantasy, but this is so bad.
