    Thread: The Great Hunt (Oslo, Norway)
Post: RE: The Great Hunt (Oslo, Norway)

After the biting brisk cold of the Norway evening, the warmth of the suite was stifling. The heavy pea green wool he wore felt leaden, smothering him. He struggled to get it off, pulling at the toggle...

Post: RE: ROP & HOD

Watching both. ROP seemed slow in 1st ep (didn't really care about anyone.) But that changed in 2. Finished 3 and it's getting good. HOD - damn, what a good show. I honestly didn't expect much. I w...

The quiet pressed in on him, all the more heavy and palpable by the brief sound of Patricus' voice. Armande felt as if a bubble had descended around him, pressing the quiet deep into his soul. He felt...

Post: RE: WOT on Prime Episode 7 - SPOILERS

So I've watched again a couple times. While it's subtle, you CAN see the struggle on Rand's face. His overreaction, his declaration that he can't lose anyone else (thinking Mat- we haven't see him ago...

That's fantastic. And ultimately, as someone wisely pointed out, Amazon will be looking at actual viewing data rather than review scores. Even if it was a 1 star series and droves were watching it, th...

Damn, but this pretty much tracks with it all, thal. All of it. Brilliant. I think the reasoning for showing an accidental killing by Perrin is definitely a sound one. I think the emotional trauma ...

I love the casting. They got it down. And they have made some adjustments to the characters that arguably work much better. 1) Mat, lest we get overawed by the pure awesome he became once he was he...
