As someone else who's read that whole series, I think it's got a lot of potential to be a really disappointing and drawn out TV series.  I would be shocked if it got the ratings it'd need in order to last the 20-some seasons it'd need to make it through the entire series.  Also, the main characters start out at about 20 years old, and the series all takes place over the course of two years.  (Thanks, WoT wiki!)

Did you get any kind of reply at all?

^ so if your wife isn't into a movie then your not allowed to see it?

Having a wife who hates seeing any movies in the theater, I'll chime in. :)  In the simplest terms, yes, that's the way it goes.  But that makes the wife sound like a jerk.  It's more like "When would I have time to go to the movies?  Probably Friday or Saturday night.  Oh... except those are among the few times I get to just hang out with my wife and watch a show with her.  Do I really want to go to a movie all by myself instead of do that?  Nah.  I'll just catch it on DVD."

Every so often, a movie will come out that I really HAVE to see in the theater, and when that happens, I have a (guy) friend who probably feels the same way, so I hit him up and we go see it.  And my wife is fine with that.  She's not a monster - she just hates movie theaters.  (A movie theater ran over her dog once.)

One of my favorite music shows prior to Rhythm Encounter did the same thing at some point - switched to really long shows less often rather than shorter ones more often.  There are a few benefits to that method - you don't have to get your team together as often (this is a huge challenge for us, but will likely be less of one with Stephen departing, so we won't be coordinating between US and Japan), you don't burn through topics as quickly... Probably others, but those are the main ones.

The advice the other podcast gave was, I thought, pretty solid - remember that you don't have to listen to it all at once. :)

I tried Red Rising.  I can see that it's well-written, but it's not for me.  Too much Survivor.

How could a dragon exist in real life?

Apples and oranges is why I hate it when people ask me things like "what's your favorite game?"  And why it's so tough to make "best of" lists - is Diablo 2 better at being an action RPG than Disgaea 3 is at being a tactics RPG?  And how much of that is down to just my own preferences?

I am reminded of the "classic" line from Megamind:

Arnold Schwarzeneggar in a fur loincloth and a big sword...who wouldn't be entertained?

...I am kinda partial to the blonde chick in both of his Conan movies :)

Have you seen this pic of Arnold with Wilt Chamberlain and Andre the Giant?

Speaking of which, have folks seen the trailer for Seth Rogen's animated movie, Sausage Party? Twisted.

I have to second your kudos for the ending of the Mistborn trilogy.  It really is satisfying.

I was mentioning to someone the other day the difference between how Lost ended and how Avatar: The Last Airbender ended.  The former, terrible and made fans angry.  The latter, amazing.

I was going to look for something similar, so it'd be pretty hypocritical of me.

Plus, I'm an Idaho native, and some of my family lives in Twin Falls... so I think I'm supposed to stand up and salute when I see a potato sack.

(That said, holy crap would that dress be itchy!)

Seeing you all talk about it, I'm shocked that they haven't already done that.  Don't even have to make them HD or anything!

Ugh, that is disappointing.  Makes me glad I stopped after the first book.
