There is something about a good sword and magic fantasy story that I am always there for. Take the new Prime series, Wheel of Time, it’s hitting all the beats that I look for in a good show. I remember some of the fantasy shows of the 80s that were riding on the coattails of the popularity of the classic RPG game, Dungeons and Dragons. In the 90s and through the 00s, the fantasy fare over the airwaves was improving but still a bit sparse. The technology has come a long way to generate believable worlds and monsters, sometimes they don’t always hit the mark, but more often than not they nail it. Now I say “Television” but what I am really I am talking about streaming since I don’t watch broadcasted TV shows anymore.
Unlike the Hobbit, or Lord of the Rings, I’ve never read this series of books. I am unsure if I ever will, but Mrs. Multiverse and I really are into the program so far, and we have something to look forward to every Friday during its run.
Other shows I’ve recently enjoyed have been The Shannara Chronicles, The Witcher, Shadow and Bone, Cursed, Letter for the King, and Knightfall. At this rate I am looking forward to the Lord of the Rings series.
