This week in WoT

So. After a bunch of announcements and false starts and messing around, the mythical Wheel of Time television series had suffered another weird setback.

This one is to do with Amazon possibly looking at making a Lord of the Rings television series.

I mean, why? Why would they do this? Everyone’s sick of Lord of the Rings at this point. Jackson did as good a job as anyone could expect. There’s no point banning anyone from ever trying again, but now? Really? When there are so many other great series out there?


So anyway, this has put a dent in the Wheel of Time plans for various reasons. More info here.

Now, looks like Wump is home from camp (at the allotted time; it was only a two-day camp), so it’s off to mini golf.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
