      I've heard that after season 2 they will add more episodes (they've already done most of season 2) because they are really happy with the success of the show, so let's hope from season 3 onwards we get 12 or 13 episodes per season and longer episodes so we get more world building 🙏🙏🙏

      Yup! Hopefully a better way of storytelling. Let the story and character development marinate a little bit. The cast and production deserves!!

    I grew up reading those books and desperately waiting for the next book in the series to be translated to Russian, published, imported from Russia to Ukraine and made accessible to buy. When the war started, it became almost impossible to buy the last books, written by Brendon Sanderson. Now I'm feeling so incredibly privileged to see them as a show. And the best part is that the announcement of the show raised interest to the Wheel of Time so much, that the books are now being translated to Ukrainian and published here! So I'm really grateful to all the creators and actors, the show is amazing.

    The two last episodes really needed more time, especially ep8 felt so rushed. I hope Amazon can give the funding for more episodes in season 2!

    Give us more episodes or longer episodes! So much work went into this show but got lost because they had to rush through literally everything.

    The Ways really needed more time in the show, it looked like they were inside for such a short time.

      @OrionPax880 yeh it would be much better with more episodes, unfortunately streaming services dont get extra money from people watching more episodes unless it prolonges their sub. Cant really blame them for prioritising LOTR tbf when theres not many IPs in the world, let alone in fantasy, that would have the initial interest that will. Do hope they give WOT what it needs and deserves though, after the first book they become much better suited to TV, it has a huge potential

    • bluelight
      bluelight 4 months ago +3

      @Bear-5555 They have a higher budget for season 2, but they have already filmed half the episodes and i doubt they'll increase them until season 3 (if the show does well).

    • OrionPax880
      OrionPax880 4 months ago +1

      @Ty Mac True much bigger budget than WOT, but I do think they will increase the WOT budget more for next season.

    • Bear-5555

      @Ty Mac Hopefully when they see how popular it is, that they give it more episodes in season 2.

    More episodes in each season will help the time and money on these sets be noticeable!!! Incredible work by these people. Need more time!!!

  • Santi Dave

    Please make the 2nd season longer, 13 episodes at least an hour runtime each

  • Laoakai
    Laoakai 4 months ago +5

    The sets, the props and locations are one of the best things about this show. Unfortunately the writing is too rushed (needs more episodes to flesh out characters), it is too driven by political and ideological agenda and it deviates too much from the source material.

    The sites have become characters. I hate leaving The Two Rivers and Fal Dara behind. If The Ways are used again, consider spending more time there. Same with The Blight. Hope to see the Portal Stones in season two (Flicker, flicker) was one of the most memorable surprises which set the Wheel of Time above other sci-fy/fantasy series

    I'd already figured most of ep. 7 and 8 must've been shot "post" Covid, because, frankly, the Waves and the Blight suffered a bit in post, and it very much shows, imo. Not to be a downer or anything, I know it was a difficult time and they were struggling quite a bit, so no pointing fingers on anybody here... but it's the first time I find myself disagreeing with the production designer on one of these specials. Particularly The Ways did feel, not only rushed, but very much a set to me... it didn't feel "natural" at all. It would've been best to go with a natural cave, especially as they don't seem to have made many touch ups and fixes on those fake pillars in the final shots, imo. Again, just stating my opinions, and it might even been they actually no longer had time to move everything and everybody on location for this.. so it's understandable. But PLEASE Amazon and Sony let them take their time for season 2, even if it means waiting more... there's already so much exaggerated criticism on this! And I'd like to see the whole series adapted!!! (and yes, this = giving production more TIME). It is called "The Wheel of Time" not "The Rushed Wheel"!

    • Amplified Emotions
      Amplified Emotions 4 months ago

      @That Rad Guy This back and forth is unecessarily dragging now, but I will add that him wanting it to feel built doesn't mean it was meant to feel entirely unnatural or like a set... why did they thought of caves in the first place if it was ALL supposed to feel entirely built up? He probably meant parts of it, or the areas that were deeply touched by darkness.. also pretty sure Loial in ep.7 mentioned how the place used to be full of nature, plants and such... I just didn't have a feel of what the place might've looked like in past ages because it looked too "clean" for me to realistically believe it was a place with history, and that ruined a bit of the immersion for me, in those scenes... nothing to loose any sleep over.. just a personal feeling I've had.

    • That Rad Guy

      @Amplified Emotions He literally says in the video that he wanted it to look like it was built by somebody

    • Amplified Emotions
      Amplified Emotions 4 months ago

      @Elizabeth Weissenborn They've kinda said they wanted the rocks/platform to feel like something that was carved overtime by nature and calamities...so I assume it's pretty safe to say that for that at least they wanted something that felt natural. The darkness and everything else is not supposed to feel natural and that worked ok, imo..

    • Elizabeth Weissenborn
      Elizabeth Weissenborn 4 months ago

      The Ways are not "natural" that's the point.

    But letting the horses "just go" before entering the Ways was such a stupid idea. Moiraine could've had someone taking care of the horses before they get to the gate. Sending them back to Tar Valon, or anywhere else. If they have no attachments to the horses then do not make emotional "good-bye" scene with them. if they are emotionally attached to the horses then do not just "let go" of them.

      It's a lot easier to write horses than to show horses. Horses are not the best actors.

    They made blight like evil amazon jungle instead of wasteland... and ways looked clunky and not at all like old roadways- I mean in past it was like highways for ones with one power and like they showed it never would allow cart or wagon to go there, too narrow. Too few episodes, poor character development and butchering source material only to show own "ingeniuety" just sux... I had high hopes for this show and apart from acting I feel dissapointment now;/ Hope seasone 2 they mend their mistakes

    Step number 1. Replace white book characters with people of colours for some reason. Check.
    Step number 2. Change story from source material. Check.
    I am a little disappointed.

    Robert Jordan called out this “adaptation” back in 1990.
    “You just don’t tell them as well as Thom,” Rand cut him off hastily, and Perrin hopped in. “You keep adding in things, trying to make it better and they never do.”
    “And you get it all mixed up too”, Rand added. “Best leave it to Thom.”
