The Wheel of Time: S1 E1 | Leavetaking

Well this dropped today, I knew it was coming but didn’t realize it was today and it looks like it is the first three episode. When the first episode of Game of Thrones aired I loved it, all in, all the way, really awesome (sorry about those last two seasons btw). For The Wheel of Time, like most things in the classic written fantasy genre I had tried to read the books at some point. But there are a lot of books, and they are long, and somewhere along the way I just put them down with no desire to keep reading. I have no idea how long the series is planned for but the first episode was pretty solid. GoT had some understated mysticism/magic, TWoT definitely brings spell casting to the forefront of the story in a pretty visually impressive way. This appealed to the Dungeons and Dragons geek inside me.

All that being said, it is Friday night, I have the house to myself and just picked up a tasty pizza. I will either watch the next two episodes or re-watch Dune again with the volume turned all the way up before I switch my attention to Parker Schnabel later this evening.

Update: Dune won.
