The Wheel of Time – season 1

I got through it. Somehow.

It’s no Game of Thrones.

Mixed reviews.

The only character that appealed to me is Daniel Henney as al’Lan Mandragoran, Moiraine’s Warder and companion. A nuanced performance.

Casting seems uninspired. Interactions between characters not convincing.

Production values are surprisingly poor.  The wolf attack in episode 5 was like bad TV from the 1970s. 

The battle / birthing scene at the beginning of episode 7 is EPIC, however. Worthy of the film 300.

I’ll probably watch season 2. I can’t explain why.
