1st 2 eps. Just gorgeous. the visuals are a sci-fi feast. im intrigued & engaged so far. (I have not read the source material, so can't say whether its true to that or not), but so far, after 2 eps, I'm in and very curious....

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.

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.
