Oh yeah, I have my issues with that show - read and loved the books as a kid, finally finished them five or six years back after Brandon Sanderson finished ghost-writing them - but the quality of special effects were not one of them.I meant Xavier, the blonde long haired dude (his real name is Percy).
I thought the effects in Wheel of Time were pretty good compared to Wednesday tbh. The CGI was so bad except for Thing (which was mostly practical with some CGI so it doesn't really count lol).
EDIT - on that note, it occured to me quite recently that my tendency to use "roll the dice" as a phrase for taking a chance on something almost CERTAINLY was from Mat, which is funny because as a kid he was my least favorite of the three protagonists, and rereading as an adult he was easily my favorite.
I mean, it helps a little that all those YASSSSS QUEEN people took it right on the chin in the last couple episodes with Mad Queen Daenerys rampaging her way through Kings Landing.Then later in season 6 and more in seasons 7 and 8 they started just having her show up on horseback in random scenes and delivering one liners that you know were designed to make certain circles of the internet go YASSSS QUEEN and ruined everything.
