    Definitely. There's too much material in most of my favourite fantasy novels to do on film unless each book in a series was done over multiple films. And even then you'd have to cut out a lot of great stuff. I really want this genre to take off finally.

    I think that's true of a lot of source material with dense world-building. The Expanse, for example, would probably have been awful as a movie or movie series. I don't know if that was ever an option, but... TV was the better route.

    Oh yeah, the Expanse would be terrible as a movie.

    I'm still hoping they re-do Harry Potter as a TV series some day. One season per book would be perfect for that, imo.

    My buddy Jeremy keeps telling me to get into EXPANSE. Tried to get through the first two episodes of the show months back but it didn't grab me. I gotta give it another try.


    Treating myself on my day/night off. At my local Malaysian place. Ginger duck noodle soup, ginger duck and scallion rice with Buddhist vegetable dish. Gonna be a piggy.

    The Expanse is another one of those shows that takes a bit to kick into gear. People like to call it "Game of Thrones in space", which seems a bit forced, but it is really good.

    Much like GoT, those early eps are really just planting seeds. Admittedly they didn't have a "hook" moment like the last scene of GoT's pilot, but once the seeds are planted, it gets pretty riveting, imo. It's easily my favorite sci-fi serial on TV right now.

    Oh right, not seen that one. Yes dense world-building is what I really enjoy and allows for much deeper escapism for me.

    One season per book is how I would like creators to treat a lot of fantasy novels out there.

    How do you hope for something you never suggested? People aren't mind-readers!

    Until I perfect the serum, that is.

    If we quickly get a new lounge for the superbowl... we can respect the battle of beer run.

    To the Lounge of Misery! Dilly Dilly!

    The last lounge took 12 days, so you'd have to crank out quality posts at 3 times the speed.

    I really enjoyed how some of the characters progressed throught the show. Back in season one I wouldn't think Nog would be the type of person to join Star Fleet, [BLACKOUT]loose a leg, and develop PTSD. [/BLACKOUT]

    I still wish they had used the Gorn instead of the Breen. The Breen were cool and all, but who wouldn't want to see a bunch of crappy reptile costumes talking to Cardassians and changlings? No one, that's who.
