It's sci-fi on a grand scale, it features Jared 'Chernobyl' Harris, and yet nobody here seems to be excited for this. Hmm ...

 

Hahaha true :) TBH I'm more exited for this than I am for Dune. And by the way how the hell don't we know who's scoring this already??

If there's a classic science fiction book series that's even harder to adapt than Dune, it's Foundation. But at least the first Dune book tells a fairly traditional narrative from beginning to end. Anyone who has read Foundation knows...that's not the case.

 

I don't see any way they're not approaching Foundation the same way Amazon is approaching their "Lord of the Rings" series, i.e. take the nucleus of the author's original ideas and have TV writers make the rest of it up.

And indeed, while Dune had been adapted before, Foundation has not. There hadn't even been those many attempts!

There's even a Foundation/Lord of the Rings connection, in that New Line was trying to develop a Foundation movie which ultimately fell apart, but their desire for a big franchise led them being receptive to Lord of the Rings.

 

Very good call on their part.

I'll definitely check it out, but if I'm honest, the girl's voiceover in the beginning of the trailer worries me. Also, the aesthetic of the show (from the snippets that I can pick up) doesn't seem to appeal all that much to me. Feels a bit sci-fi channel.

So its fitting that now TV series based of both franchises would be airing, albeit a year apart.


And both cover events spanning millennia (at least in the books they’re inspired by).

My own understanding/estimation of what the Rings show will do is that it won't cover millennia: it'll just take a time period and focus on it. They have quite a few people playing Dwarves, Numenoreans and even Dunlendings, and it'd be foolish to do a couple of chapter or even a season and then send all of those away.

‘Manifest’ Saved With 20-Episode Fourth & Final Season On Netflix

 

I've never seen this show and don't think I've ever talked to anyone who has, but it seems to have a lot of internet buzz

I tried to read this series, but couldn't get past the first one, I found it to be interminably silly and a bit of a Tolkien rip-off (though I'm told later books don't have that issue). Still, they're very beloved by a lot of people, and I'm interested enough to give it a try. The trailer looks fairly fantasy generic, along the lines of Witcher or See, but perhaps the source material will elevate it.

 

Anyone know who’s doing the score?

Balfe is scoring Wheel of Time as of today. I called it two years ago that him getting His Dark Materials was a slippery slope toward him/RCP scoring everything related to fantasy and possibly getting the LOTR show.

Disappointing news. Buckley would have been better. I wonder if this means that he will score LOTR as well. He did like a post about the LOTR show on twitter a few months ago.

Part of the score apparently, according to Balfe.

Balfe's HDM has a strong theme, but as is usual for his work, it all sounds like it's coming from a computer. Even the main titles has that Zimmerite processed horn blaring to make it sound specifically from the 2010s.

Excellent marking from HBO for Season 3 of Succession: Not giving away which side people will fall on by making 4 versions of the same poster!

I thought YouTube comments about the mother and son surviving in an underground world were jokes! But now I'll probably watch it... But wow and oach, those first few minutes of dialgue - they really jammed in the backstory!

Holy crap, Succession Season 3 looks amazing, can't think of any better television content 2021 will have besides this (and Curb Season 11, which will be airing right after Succession every week!)

  • The animated short film Ciao Alberto, featuring characters from Pixar’s Luca

Netflix's adaptation of the anime series 'Cowboy Bebop'. 

 

The style oddly reminds me of The Wachowski's Speed Racer film. As a fan of the anime, I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with the show. I just know people will scrutinize it to the point of absurdity, especially when an adaptation of a beloved animated series is involved.

Looking forward to Ozark S4!  We enjoyed the first 3 seasons very much, and it is definitely the right time to end it instead of dragging anything out.

I remember that I liked S1 of Ozark. Still have to watch S3 but somehow it doesn't seem to be important for me. I started to have problems with the show during S2. Literally everyone is bad & corrupt, the one even more than the other, and I had a hard time buying that. I did like 'the walk in the forrest' scene but that's was about it.

I still haven't seen any of The Witcher beyond the first episode, but Netflix has greenlit a season 3 ahead of the season 2 premiere

They can do that because it's one of their most watched shows.

From either movie column, the only ones I've seen are Bird Box, The Irishman, Enola Holmes, The Old Guard, and Murder Mystery.

 

The only one I really liked is The Old Guard. The other 4 I've seen were nothing special IMO
