I found out today it's shooting here. That's an odd choice, I would have thought somewhere European would be more apropos. Wonder if I'll recognize any of the sets from Black Sails?

Oh, tone down the hyperbole. Nothing they're doing will have the slightest effect on the existing books, or any impact on the esteem Pterry's held in by his fans.

If it's a shitty show, it'll be forgotten as a footnote.
They are fundamentally altering at least 3 major characters for no good reason
We don't know that, yet. The series hasn't even started shooting yet. Bit early for the "Sky is Falling" song-and-dance.
