Season 2 of The Wheel of Time from the Judkins/Bezos world...is here.
Unfortunately, things are not going well. We finally got to see seanchan in their full "glory"
Grotesquely oversized soldier helmets, damane metal nipples, all wielding the One Power
like a Tai-chi ...
And I'm pretty sure they can barely keep from shouting Avada Kedavra and Expecto Patronum…
At the same time, despite all oaths to Light or Darkness, I see the main religion in the universe of
Judkins/Bezos is Rastafarianism even among aiel.
Removing main character Uno, replacing Gaul with Avienda in the cage, da'kovale ogier,
Min - darkfriend, emo Lan...I almost cried here...Perrin continues to be childish, Moiraine is like being hit with a rag
Almost all the actors, despite their talents, clearly do not know what is being asked of them and at certain moments they seem literally lost.
Exceptions are Donal Finn (Matt) and Ceara Coveney (Elaine) from the first moment they fit their roles. Josha Stradowski (Rand) slowly walks into class.
The overall rating of what has been seen so far is 3 and very tortured. With a huge budget, ready-made plot with the need to simply adapt the important moments yes
to receive this strange thing can in all good conscience be called a premonition.
