I’ve still got 2 episodes left in Stranger Things Season 3 but I quite enjoy it thus far.

It did get me thinking, though, that it would be really cool to see a competently-done D&D series or film and see some of the more iconic D&D monsters on screen. A true mind flayer or beholder or something like that would be great.

The casting information for the Wheel of Time series is slowly trickling out. The actors don’t exactly look the way I imagined them, but I don’t care all that much as long as there is some internal consistency. In the series, there are some very clear regional/ethnic distinctions, and I hope this is well-represented in the series.

“Richard Gere was set to star as one of two elderly Vietnam vets and best friends who find their monotonous lives upended when a woman they both loved 50 years ago is killed by a car. Their lifelong regrets and secrets collide with their resentment of today’s self-absorbed millennials and the duo then go on a shooting spree.”

But Apple TV changed their minds:
