You would probably be ok in Brighton @Cooroo!

Non book reader and massive GOT fan here. I'm 4 episodes in and enjoying it very much. I wish I'd read the books as I need more world-building and background.
But the costumes! I want to wear that shit. I hate fashion, I loathe buying clothes. I want woollen dresses and cool cloak things. I guess I'd get funny looks in Morrisons?

I've watched the behind the scenes footage for each episode now. They do explain why they made certain changes to the book when adapting it for TV.
Zampa · 30/12/2021 15:22
As a non-book reader, I really enjoyed it. Lots of conflicting decisions for each character, a deeper understanding of motives, some hope and a bit of desperation.
As with GoT, I now can't wait until series 2 so have just ordered the first 3 books!

I've seen it. It was very underwhelming. I think they had too much to do and too little time to do it in. It's a shame, as the previous few episodes have been amazing, but the last one left me a little flat.

Thanks for the brilliant behind the scenes video. Loved watching those.
Who has seen the last episode?
I loved most of it but have I Wish I Hadn't Read The Book Feelings about lots of it, and serious burning rage about a couple of things.
I think I would have loved it had I not read the books so many times.
Whinge · 19/12/2021 09:28
Yes it's a really clever idea, and means they're able to alter them for future scenes using the ways. There's a behind the scenes for each episode, talking about costumes, props, set designs etc, it's really interesting.
SoupDragon · 19/12/2021 08:57
I enjoyed watching that - the set design for the Ways was so simple (relatively speaking 😂) yet ingenious!
Whinge · 18/12/2021 21:47
I'm sure many of you will have seen this, but here's a fantastic behind the scenes from episode 7. The special camera for the cold open and the clever set design for the ways is really interesting.

I think I must identity with her. Just need to work out how to channel the one power now then I'm set.... 😄
NynaeveSedai · 18/12/2021 16:52
They don't trust her. They don't know her, and aes sedai are not fully trusted in lots of parts of the WoT world.
SoupDragon · 18/12/2021 16:40
She's not in it to be liked, just to get the job done.
SoupDragon · 18/12/2021 16:40
I think it's her aloofness and impression of superiority. Of course, she is superior because she's right!
Campervan69 · 18/12/2021 15:39
I can't understand why they all hate Moraine. I have a serious girl crush on her. She's fabulous.

Cursed is on Netflix Filopastry. Britannia might also be worth a look if you binge Witcher too quickly.
Like all of you I also can't believe there is only one episode left - whoosh! but I guess that is because we enjoy it so much. I liked this episode - the first part was really epic (love the hexagonal stones, like the basalt columns in the Giant's Causeway and a few other places) but I felt they spent a bit too long on the Love issues. It was still great though. Greats et up for next week's finale.
GrouchyKiwi · 18/12/2021 11:32
Episode 7 was the best so far, even with me yelling about a few changes that were completely out of character.
Good action, the story moved along a lot, and I like how they did Machin Shin.
NynaeveSedai · 18/12/2021 10:56
It's so disappointing that they were only given 8 episodes, I can't understand it after the money and hype they put into it. Maybe it was a covid decision as the studio was probably more strapped than when they started
Whinge · 18/12/2021 10:38
I really enjoyed episode 7, especially the opening scene that was just fantastic.
My only complaint is I wish there were more episodes, I can't believe there's only 1 left for this season. 🙁
Campervan69 · 17/12/2021 20:26
I'm enjoying season 2 of Witcher so far. Must not binge. Must not binge.
FiloPasty · 17/12/2021 19:51
@SapatSea seen both of those but not cursed is it Netflix? I’ve just realised Witcher season 2 has just launched so ill watch that :)
Dozer · 17/12/2021 17:32
Thought would try the books first, am on book two, have mixed thoughts about it, interesting plot but not a fan of the writers’ style.
SapatSea · 17/12/2021 17:29
Shadow and Bone
Locke and Key
Cursed ( but it was cancelled after one season)
FiloPasty · 17/12/2021 15:35
Sad that there is only one episode left? Any recommendations for similar things to watch?
I’ve seen The Witcher, Shannara chronicles etc on Netflix
Campervan69 · 15/12/2021 17:30
I find her smile quite odd. Like she has veneers that are too big for her mouth. Remember noticing this in True Blood as well. Assume they had all been given new teeth for filming.
CrossPurposes · 14/12/2021 00:06
That was enjoyable. It helped that Rosamund Pike's wig was better in a few scenes :-)
