    Rothfuss XV: Move along, nothing to see here

    I read the books and thought they were good enough to finish. I'm not a fan of Harry Potter so obviously that part threw me off. I'm also not a fan of all the deena shit, I just dont care anymore. That said the world is interesting to me, the magic is interesting, and the chandarian is interesting. I also enjoyed their adventuring looking for the bandits much more than pretty much anything else in either book. I can live with or without an end but if he finally writes it I'll read it and hope the juice was worth the squeeze. I have a feeling it probably wont be but that's life.

    The Witcher on Netflix 2

    It looks better than expected. I'm excited. Hopefully we get some good fantasy again as I didn't really think we would until that LOTR TV show or something. I certainly didn't think this one would be the one.
  3. I read the majority of these books in HS. Don't think I ever finished them and I graduated HS 11 years ago so I frankly how no idea how it wound up. I started the audio book of book 1 recent to and from work so that gives me an hour each day and I'm enjoying it. The dialogue and inner dialogue of Rand is kind of shit so far but I hope that improves as the journey progresses. I'm seeing some corny things that I hope they take out but at the same time seeing HOW this could be fantastic. If they get the trollocs right, them raiding the village can be great. I'm not very far but there's a lot of potential I'm seeing here.

    LOTR prequel TV series 2.0

    I'm really looking forward to this and think it's going to be good. I have faith. I don't think it's going to be as good as the LOTR trilogy but I hope it's in the same ballpark unlike that horrible Hobbit shit. I hope they make it their own too. Make it darker. Change the way the Orcs and such look. Make the kills more violent. Show that it was a grim era.

    What would your role be in GoT?

    Welp on a good day im 160 pounds. Im fit but not ripped so i reckon a dying soldier would work. I'm like 5'9 and not superior athletically. If i wrote myself in I'd kill someone which saves like jon snow then I'd get decapitated seconds after. It'd be glorious.

    Top 3 books of 2018

    They probably would be too but i read a ton of detective mystery stuff too but can't remember all the names honestly. For fantasy i read gardens of the moon and the first stormlight archive but didnt like either really. I also read the first one in the 2nd apocalypse series and didnt love it but i could see myself liking it, it got better near the end.

    Top 3 books of 2018

    Think i read the first law trilogy this year. That'd be number 1. Hard to pick afterthat.

    ‘Outlaw King’: Robert The Bruce Scottish Epic

    I'm assuming it at least shows the relationship between the Bruce and his wife a little more so it makes sense that she's okay with him going against the English like that.

    ‘Outlaw King’: Robert The Bruce Scottish Epic

    I liked it a lot. The acting was good. The fighting was sufficient. The only downside for me is the pacing. I feel like we didn't get the characterization we needed and it took away from it a bit. I love the story so much though that I'd still give it like an 8/10. Hopefully a director's cut comes out and maybe that improves it.

    Raymond E. Feist’s The Riftwar Saga

    I didnt particularly like all the gollum stuff but in general i loved em.

    I dont even count season 2 as true detective lol. I guess it doesn't count for the mini-series reason as well.

    Haven't seen the majority of those shows but you did list some good ones. I'm one of the few here i guess that rank GOT top ten so you're good there. I wouldnt really put comedies in my list but here are some that would be in my top ten in no particular order: Breaking bad Game of thrones True detective The sopranos The rest I'd have to think longer about. Those are clear though.

    Ya that alone tells me that guy needs to stay away from fantasy. Crap movie.

    The Long Night Casts Two Leads

    I think they are doing this the right way. If you are going to make a prequel make it thousands of years before that way you have creative freedom. Everything they "know" is word of mouth or what someone wrote down which means it can actually be far different. There can be more dragons/magic/etc. They get to shape it. The weapons can be inferior and whole societies can basically be barbarians. As long as they put the effort into it I have faith in HBO making this good. Will it be as good? Nah but it can still be good.
