And I have a very hard time thinking it would make for good television. But I like the idea of just taking it as a temple or “ foundation” to riff from. Like there’s no reason to be fully loyal and consistent to the source material as that would definitely be boring and tough to pull off.

That said, I love Jared Harris, so that’s enough to pull me in. I also like Lee Pace, and he’s doing some work here. Like the young lady too (don't think she exists in the original novel)

I’m Two episodes in and I’m still sticking around. Not sure there’s enough action to keep the general audience interested though. Gonna watch episode 3 tonight, ending ofepisode 2 has me intrigued.

Like the world building is on a whole other level.

Like its pure sci-fi eye candy. Good call on deviating on the source material. Asimov isn't known for his visual descriptiveness.

Yes, beautifully shot and rendered. The costumes/wardrobe is impeccable (except for that blue jacket Raych be sporting lol).

I really like how this and other Apple TV shows can be mature and dramatic without being overly gratuitous like content of similar quality on HBO or Netflix.

They certainly have my attention with this one.

I read some of the novels and though I loved them it didn't resonate the idea of a prosperous empire eventually declining. There was even a book out at the time I read it call the end of history and the theory was we were in a period of unending prosperity.

Anyway, now that it feels like we are watching this country's decline in real time, this show resonates more.

I tried to get my kids to watch it and it was probably too boring for them. Not a lot of action yet, but a lot is going on. Felt like grown-up sci-fi.

...each ep gets me invested more and more, and the visual presentation has maintained its high quality too...

its more than just the visuals though, im intrigued by the story/themes that seem to be at play, and impressed with a lot of the cast...

one of the shows we look forward to each week...
