The Wheel of Time: Not Game of Thrones...and That's Okay!


On this week's episode of Kickin & Streamin Podcast, Graham and Jocelyn discuss Amazon Prime Video series The Wheel of Time. Starring British actress Rosamund Pike, The Wheel of Time is a fantasy epic not unlike Game of Thrones, yet with elements drawn from eastern philosophy. Graham & Jocelyn began by admitting they were late joining the party of fans of the Wheel of Time as Prime Video had originally opted to release weekly episodes of the show; which didn't fit Graham & Jocelyn's binge-watching style. Jocelyn admits she is not a fan of "swords & sorcery" shows, but was pleasantly surprised after she started watching TWoT. Graham & Jocelyn dissected TWoT both from the perspective of its metaphysical allegories, its philosophical nuances, and of course cast's performance. Graham had high praise for Rosamund Pike's performance while Jocelyn highlighted Pike's ability to play "powerful women" while removing any sense of otherness from the character.
