For those of you unaware, there was a Wheel of Time TV pilot called "Winter Dragon" that aired on FXX on the 9th at 1:30AM. I’m still shocked and disgusted at how bad it is and how it just stinks of slimy executive shenanigans. So with that said, here is a link explaining the whole story better than I could at this time.

The option rights were supposed to revert back to ‘Bandersnatch’ (the Jordan Estate) on the 11th.
For the many that (luckily) missed it, here it is. I apologize in advance.

Are your eyes bleeding? Well here's a fan production done a little over a year ago that should help. On its own it still needs a few tweaks, but its better than that “official” abomination.

It just goes to show you that true fans know how to get things done right.
When you get passed that fact that it's the definition of garbage, I think it would've been okay if they at least had a production that wasn’t akin to Hercules & Xena from 199-fucking-5.
We still have the books thankfully. Remember the books...remember...REMEMBER.
Well folks, what's your take on this?
I still have not read Wheel Of Time, despite having the first book at home for ages already...
But hey, TV ruined ASOIAF successfully, so why should they stop?
