I have never been one to be giddy over a television show or series. The one television series I looked forward to every week, the one that left an imprint on my mind is Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The series came out in the late 80’s, and every week I looked forward to sitting down and watching the show with my family. But this post is not about Star Trek: The Next Generation.
No, no. Tor announced that Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicles have been optioned for television.
As I said on Facebook, “OMG OMG OMG.”
If you have not read these books, stop what you are doing and read them. Immediately. And then revel in their awesome sauce. Really. Bathe in it. And know that you are reading the words of a modern day Picasso of words.
My only fear is that Fox will not do the books justice. I wish HBO had picked up the series. From Game of Thrones you can tell that they know how to translate a fantasy saga to television. Fox, on the other hand, killed Firefly.
Do you think Fox can do the books justice?
