    From Darkman Almighty@77:1/143 to All on Mon Jan 11 18:07:15 2021
    The other day I was on IMDB and saw a listing for a new series.. Foundation.. based on Issac Asimovs books. It looks pretty good from what I was able to gather from the preview. Although not long enough, the production looks
    decent. Anyone excited to see this too?

    I am, I just hope they don't fuck it up. With any series that is beloved by so many, they have a higher bar than most. The last thing we want to end up with is some brutal take on a great story. Not like it hasn't happened before.

    Yes! The trailer makes it look AMAZING. This has always been one of my favorite sci-book series, and one I think about often. I think I discussed this a few messages prior.

    The AppleTV+ production looks to be of very high quality. I believe it's release has been delayed because of Covid, but it's still expected this year.

    I am not excited because I am not a series dude.

    The original Foundation series from Asimov was quite ok.

    They overdid it a bit with the prequels and fanworks though.

    Is it going to be one of their own IMDB series, or were they advertising it
    as being shown somewhere else?

    I totally agee. It's hit and miss. I wasn't too pleased with the Dune series.
    I thought the take on Arthur C Clarkes "Childhoods End" wasn't too bad. Being this is an Apple production I'd like to think that it will be pretty solid.
    We have what looks like a decent range of actors in it and some special
    effects but as you know that may not be enough. Here's hoping.

    yeah fair enough. I much prefer the Robot series myself, although I haven't read that many. I do get what you mean though.

    Too bad it's been delayed. With the way things are going right now... I need this.. we need this series. In a sense because of how detailed the story is, I'm glad that they waited to bring it to the big screen. I'm finding with
    these small production houses like Apple and Netflix.. they are bringing out some really great shows.

    I've read pretty much of all of Foundation (that Asimov himself wrote). Haven't read any Foundation books by other authors. I've also read the "Galactic Empire novels, but didn't get a chance to really get started on the Robots series. They do sound good too.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Foundation. The trailer on Apple TV looks great.
