john Posted December 4, 2021 Share Posted December 4, 2021 I think that some people are way harsh on the general quality, I can scroll through Netflix and find a hundred shows in a minute that are worse in terms of dialogue or writing choices. Yeah, there’s some poor stuff if you’re talking from the perspective of a top tier show and an enormous budget but for streaming tv in general it’s decent quality. The most egregious problem, imo, is that it sometimes feels like it’s been constructed under too much pressure, with too many constraints on what they wanted to do, maybe too many influences in the direction. As for adaptation complaints, I’m definitely not onboard. I’d rather see them do something different, that way you get two things. And some changes are not only better but necessary. You can’t adapt the way people interact in Jordan’s world, it’s a heightened reality, nobody is normal, it would be like Parks and Rec in a fantasy world. And as popular as the book series is, the show is potentially aiming for literally tens of millions more viewers. You have to evaluate it as a tv show more than an adaptation.
