HBO doing serious sci-fi? Oh God yes please!

Will now be an Apple TV series from David S Goyer

So a bit of a downgrade then...

The books are heavy reading, I gave up as there were too many, so I hope the TV series is not as complex to follow if its just based on the first book.  Visually it could be really good. I do love Si-Fi.

Mind you , I would have prefered a film of 'Rendezvous with Rama', which to me was Arthur C Clarke's best book, about mankind investigating a massive cylindrical miles long spaceship heading directly to Earth, before it reaches here, to find out its motives. Morgan Freeman the actor, has been pushing for this to be made for over a decade, as director, but likely with him as one of the main characters, but still no advancement since 2013.

It's lot of years since I the trilogy but I don't recall finding them heavy going.
I'll have to revisit them.

Not sure I'll be paying Apple for the pleasure of watching it though.

I love Foundation, indeed all of Asimov ‘s sci-fi, although while he’s a great creator of concepts, he couldn’t write believable characters. A TV interpretation could be fantastic.

I really loved the I Robot movie, which once you take out the Will Smith-isms is actually quintessential Asimov. Bicentennial Man, not so much, as the sugariness rotted my teeth.

But yeah, Apple TV... not happening!

I got 6 months of Apple TV free with my Macbook, the only thing I've seen on it is the Beastie Boys special. It will have expired before this comes out.

It will likely be on another TV station that you already have, after a year or two. That's what i am hoping.

There are too many payable formats now to have them all.

Ah Ha!
Child two bought one recently, but then it's not going to be out this side of the pandemic is it.

BTW If we're mentioning Sci Fi we'd like to see Iain M Banks Culture novels please. Recently found out someone has the rights to Player of Games but don't know who or if they're going to do anything with it.
