Dexter New Blood actually doesn't look bad, Jay.

 

 

I might have to check this one out as well:

We'll watch Dexter.  It was filmed a few towns over from where we live

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.

Indeed.

 

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

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.

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.

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.

The music in that trailer was pretty sucky. And indeed, by the looks of it, expect the level of The Witcher.

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 5 versions of the same poster!

Spoiler
