WoT looks like a SyFy production. The sets and lighting are weak at best. We’ll see how it works out story-wise.
My favorite book series, but as soon as I saw the PC overload I knew I would never watch this. Now my suspicions about how crap this was going to be are confirmed by multiple sources who said the same as you: SyFy cheapo series.
Of course, I hated Game of Thrones as well. And every Dune adaptation. Really, if you cannot do justice to a book series, I don't want to watch it. Yes, I loved LOTR. I always thought PJ should go back and do a short film about the Tom Bombadill chapters, though. It really is a separate story, but that could be cool on it's own.
Funny enough, I really like The Witcher and the new Shadow and Bone - which both deviate from the books BUT, the books aren't great. Shadow and Bone is actually not a good read. The whole series. Her second series, which has the Crows from the show, is much, much better, so I'm glad they combined them in the show. (Which actually makes sense, timeline-wise.)
