Without Serwe no one tells Kellhus and Cnaiur about the Holy War. No one tells them about the Holy War, Kellhus kills Cnaiur and makes a beeline for Kian. Kellhus is killed outright because he's a Norsirai. Serwe is critical to Kellhus's anagnorisis in the first book and completely alters his plans.

That's only from a plotting standpoint, nevermind thematic content.

Excellent points as always, HP! :)

Esmenet is taken captive by the Scylvendi raiding party on the way to Momemn from Shimeh. She does all that stuff. Don't think the geography can't or won't be fudged.

I hope they keep her because there are only two women in the story.  However, the parts that she plays can be combined with other characters.

IIt's also likely that we will see more of the "armored in lacquered human finger nails sranc" and fewer of the "sporting huge erections sranc".

I LOL'd at this.  :)

Yep, they're gunna have trouble with showing wangs at all, let alone erect ones. I guess it'd be ground breaking, though I'm not sure I can place my finger on who's ground it'd break. Sure, when a show actually shows a nude male for once (instead of just nude females), I'm like 'Ho, they actually did it!' I'm a little shocked, but it's hardly super important by itself. I'd think actually showing erect penises actually has the problem of being kind of hilariously ridiculous! Though I guess the rape will kill that humor soon enough.

Yep, that's going to be an issue. One way to approach it would be that the Sranc and Inchoroi are more into pain and violence, and that it gives them pleasure to inflict pain. (but not so much sexual pleasure which allows the "rapy-ness" to be deemphasized)

Seeing lots of Sranc running around with erect phalluses is just going to look ridiculous, even ignoring the rape aspect. Have them simply get enjoyment from inflicting pain instead.

I hope Aurang's wang is Mandingo sized. It would bring a lot to the series I feel.

Few, I can imagine the producer meetings on this one. The many of them. But I have to weigh in in favour of the wangs.

It would be awesome to see the same actress playing sweet, long suffering Serwe then go one to play the skin-spy that imitates and watch her cut through Nansur like a hot knife through butter.

You can have erect phalluses as long as they are monstrous or deformed for the Sranc i think, and as long as the camera doesnt dwell on them, because its just part of who they are.

That would be pretty awesome. Skin-spies existing throughout the show and their 'bringing back' dead characters will be pretty awesome to see on screen.

I've asked, I believe, twice now on his blog and during the AMA that Bakker did. No response.

I figure that either means the deal is so great that its gotta be kept totally secret per contractual NDAs with powerful production companies - or that it fell through entirely and he's not interesting in regaling the failure.

Super optimistic me thinks that it failed  :(

After seeing the game of thrones show go to shit in 2 seasons I don't think I would want to see a PON show. Plus they would Norsirai-wash everyone which would take the eastern feel of the series.

Nah think of it this way. The show isn't for the fans. its to raise capital to support Bakker writing more Earwa and other stories. Even if it becomes a clusterfuck after 1 episode, the sale of the rights would have raised enough capital to produce at LEAST 1 more book, if not a whole trilogy.

You, the original fan, loses nothing - but gains the world.
