Default A Discovery of Witches

Have any of you read the trilogy by Deborah Harkness? I loved the books and when it went on TV in the UK I was pretty jealous. Good news- it is coming to AMC tonight so I am pretty happy about that.
I know, the books are going to be better, aren't they always? But I am looking forward to watching.

I haven't read it but the commercials intrigue me. What do you think, watch tv show first or books first?

I always seem to read books first and then watch. When I see something on TV or movie, then try to read the book, the visual images get in the way of what I am reading. Or the storylines are so different that I can't comprehend the difference. I tried to read Lord of the Rings after watching the movies and it was impossible for me. It is easier for me to go the other way around- watch a show/movie and ignore the differences.
We will probably watch the show tonight since we dvr'd it. I will have to let you know.

I've read the books and loved them! I don't have AMC so I won't be able to watch the series, but I have to say that the actor they chose to play Matthew doesn't fit my mental image from the books enough, so I think it would bother me.

My "one episode in" review--
Not 100% sold on Matthew either. I think I imagined him both stockier/muscular but a softer/gentler face. Not quite so chiseled. I think he comes across that way to me because I know more of his character as the story progresses.
OTOH- Sarah and Em and the house-- thought that was really cute, well done.

The show itself is starting out bland. Again that could be my bias b/c I know what is going to happen. I don't think Gary cared for it all that much but he always falls asleep when we watch TV so

So, now I have seen the first two episodes and I am not thrilled with it. Makes me sad because I really wanted to be. Maybe it is too soon make a full opinion but it is so bland esecially compared to the books. I will have to give it another couple of times before I decide completely.
