Yeah, that's along the lines of where my concerns lie. I like the books almost more for how RJ described things as much as the plot. When you take those descriptions away, I just wonder how it will all play.

Like you said, cautiously optimistic, but a little concerned about how it will translate.

There's a great plot line hidden by some of the needless meandering.

So half way into the first episode, and bored/disappointed enough to post in this thread. :-)

It's been years since I read the books, but not a single cast member fits the characters I remember.

Spoiler!

Ugh. I the last 10 minutes better be fucking epic or I won't be watching episode 2. Sucks. Was really looking forward to this,

I lasted about 15 minutes. It was basically playing out like a Kathleen Kennedy femdom fantasy.

The dragon can be either male or female. Click went the remote.

Big fan of the books, and I didn't love ep1. A lot of liberties that I didn't like, and it elt rushed. But ep2 was very good, and ep3 is in progress, but liking it just as much so far.

Well, shit. Was looking forward to diving into this, but your early reviews aren't exactly motivating me.

Reviews are pretty much split between love and hate on Amazon. I'm seeing a trend about "just getting through the first episode". I didn't give the 2nd episode much of a chance (acting at the ferry scene was embarrassing). Just changed the whole dynamic of the story with completely different characters. :-)

Fingers crossed the final season of Expanse holds up.

The first episode of WoT looked good yesterday.

I'd love to see one of Neal Stephenson's books adapted for a mini series or movie. Snowcrash or Anathem would be awesome.

Episode 1 was a bit of a slog. 2 and 3 were much better.

Yes, they went a bit pc with having anyone be the Dragon, but those who have read the books know who it will be.

Spoiler!

Been damn near 30 years since i read the first book. So I remember enough to know they changed stuff, but I'm probably not really grasping how much. I thought the first episode kinda slogged along a bit, the other two were better. It's no Game of Thrones, but I will keep watching.

While you always have to have changes when adapting a book to tv I think they did fairly decent so far. The first episode change with one of the characters seems stupid right now, maybe there will be a payoff in the future but seemed very unneeded. But all in all things are headed in the right direction. Seem to recall discussion on them wanting it to be 7 seasons which would mean speeding things along soon.

It's ok so far, i think it's just warming up though. It's been like 30 yrs since i read the books. I don't even remember what happens anymore. Normally, I really like Rosamund Pike but i'm just not feeling her in this role. She doesn't have that mystical feel to her.
