    TV Amazon TV shows

    Dark Tower, Wheel of time, Lord of the Rings. Amazon is making a show of all these. I'm kinda hyped.

    Loved Wheel of Time books, so I hope they don't butcher the shit out of it.

    Not read Dark Tower, not sure what to expect. Movie wasn't great, so not that hyped about it.

    And lastly, Lord of the Rings. I for one, absolutely love the 13 hour New Zealand tourist wank trap Peter Jackson made. Wonder what Amazon will do.

    I always worry when they want to touch on LOTR frankly..

    And they took over The Expanse, which is fantastic.

    None of the rest of those interest me, honestly. LotR has been done well already, it seems to still hold up, don't need another. WoT I never liked, it was bog standard fantasy and incredibly predictable. Never read Dark Tower. Been told its good, but didn't have the time...

    Hearing LoTR will start with Young Aragorn, probably for milking reasons.

    Stocked to hear amazon pick up Expanse. I'm quite enjoying the show so far, altho I'm hearing the books are very different and that some of the characters in the TV show are being portrayed poorly.

    Honestly, good fiction is good fiction. I don't care if something is a different take on the source material so long as it is a good take. I've read LotR, and I've seen the movies. It is one of the rare situations where the movies did a better job with the material than the books, IMO. I'd say the same about Harry Potter, honestly. The Expanse so far seems to be in the category where I don't care if its exact to the books, or even close, since it is very good on its own.
