    Liked the first episode well enough, but I thought the second one had too much filler. The scenes on Trantor well interesting enough, but the scenes on the colony ship kind of dragged.

    ...I was ready to be pissed about the change of sending Hari Seldon, Gaal Dornick and Raych to Terminus, because it would've created a big plot hole down the line. So I wasn't surprised when Seldon got shanked and Gaal was ejected into space.

    One of the most important principles of psychohistory is that for its predictions and for plans made based on those predictions to work, the population can't know about them so they don't influence their decisions. In the novels Seldon made damn sure nobody on Terminus could independently recreate psychohistory on their own.

    You can't have psychohistorians on Terminus and stick to the plot of the trilogy!

    I expected a lot of liberties, as the book isn't character driven. I'm enjoying it, as it's gorgeous with great CGI. I always appreciate that lived in look of vehicles Star Wars popularized. I don't care too much about the race/gender swaps, especially with Gaal, as his book role is tiny. The jury is still out, but it's entertaining so far.

    I think they did a poor job with Gaal's relationship though, that came out of nowhere lol. Question for you regarding books
    I read the trilogy a long time ago, what happened to Harry and Gaal there? Wasn't Harry murdered onm Terminus. Gaal, from what I recall, is never mentioned after the first time jump on Terminus, but it's so foggy. I don't want to look up things online, because I forgot so much and don't want anything spoiled.

    Hari Seldon stayed on Trantor and died of old age a couple of years after the colonists left for Terminus. That thing he says on the show about assuming he wasn't going to be sent to Terminus is a nod to that, because it is what happened in the book.

    Gaal Dornick presumably stayed as well. The only other mention of him in the original trilogy that I can remember is in one of the quote from the Encyclopedia Galactica that says he wrote a biography of Seldon.

    An important plot point in the trlogy is that there should not be any high-level psycologists or psycohistorian on Terminus or the Plan would fail. They all went with the Second Foundation to Star's End.

    Harold not got enough edge for me.

    I like John Cho... but not as Spike (that we know from original).
    I could be wrong though... to a degree.
    Looks good overall though.

    Anyone knows why Helix went the route they did after the first season? I wish they focused more on that plot they had going for them and maybe wouldve extended the series a bit longer.

    Just watched this Danish show The Chestnut Man.

    If you're partial to some gritty murder/mystery situations, it's well worth a look. I liked it a lot.

    These three I can't wait for. Plenty of time to finish the final season of Lucifer by the time Witcher season 2 drops.
