I loved the show, and the finale! I'm a big fan of the books, and thought the show took a few episodes to find its footing, but it had been firing on all cylinders for the last half of the season.

If you do decide to read the books, be aware that the first book is incredibly slow to start. You may have an advantage, already being a fan of the TV show, but I had a hard time finishing the book, and I know several people who have felt the same way. But the second and third books are amazing and much better paced.

Lev Grossman (the author) had a spotlight panel at SDCC last year, followed by a signing. He was really nice and engaging. At the panel, a couple of the producers showed clips from the pilot. Hopefully the show will have its own panel this year. I really like how they adapted it.

are folks looking forward to the season 2 premiere soon?

I'm actually looking for a couple of uber fan to chat with in the next day or so about this show ... I've got a press room with the cast @ NYCC. I believe Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Arjun Gupta, Hale Appleman, Summer Bishil, Jade Tailor and Rick Worthy will all be there.

and given all that's going on, i'm a bit stumped for questions.

anyway, if anyone is a fan and is interested in getting a few questions answered- I'd LOVE to work on a google doc with you ;)

Great write up!

We have, but have not read, the books. Any suggestions on if it's better to read then watch, or watch then read?

i get the feeling that it's not necessary to read them at all since the show diverges from the book quite a bit. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login) vs You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login)

the main thing is to not try and multi task on the computer like i do with some show- (from the WB etc)
