I'm just in it for the gratuitous spanking. If they don't hit a one spank per episode average I might bail out early.
She went and she left me like litter. She took all future summers with her. I lost all my money cuz I tried to bribe her. Now I can only afford an amateur sniper.

Now there's a couple of sentences that just beg to be taken out of context. ;)

echoing the generic tropey feels.
and teen angst movie feels, ugh this could be so bad.

I'll give the pilot a chance but it will need to have some kind of a hook (beyond the gratuitous spanking) to keep us on board. The wife especially, she's never read the books, and I wouldn't reco them to her given how underwhelmed she was by the Hobbit.

Didn't they try and hide being Aes Sedai too when they came in the books, slightly different approach they're taking.

I wasn’t excited before the trailers, even less so now. Dear lord.
I've always been crazy but its kept me from going insane.

What's worrying is that they thought that was worthy of being a teaser. Can only imagine that's aimed at the current fantasy because anyone new to it is going to pull a hard meh at that.

I was cautiously optimistic with the trailer, but that poster and the teaser have made me feel less so, not more. I'll still try the pilot, but I'm wondering how on earth they're managing to make an actress of Rosamund Pike's calibre look so stiff and awkward.

It's in the character description, so that might actually be the best acting she's ever dedicated to film or stage.

Darkfriends will be easily identified by their shifty eyes. She was scanning the room for the boys though, right?
