I strongly disagree with his bit about the romances. Cheesy I know but if the world were about to end, what could be more important. I mean what are you even fighting to save? The romances help us to invest in the characters and that is essential. Faile/Perrin/Shaido - I know the general concensus is against this whole arc but I love it and think it is essential for the character development that needs to happen for final events to play out as they do. Morgase- I love this whole story line but also agree that it could be safely cut. Kind of minor but I am curious how they are going to deal with all the spanking as punishment! Don't see it quite fitting /working/going down well with audiences. Merging/reducing the forsaken could work and help with general condensing of the story to transfer to the screen. But it would have to be so carefully done.
