Opening Credits for Netflix's COWBOY BEBOP Live-Action Series Released
First Teaser Trailer for Neil Gaiman's THE SANDMAN Live-Action Series on Netflix
The Lord of Dreams has been summoned, and captured, by mortal men. Once free from his captivity, this eternal ruler of Dreams will realize that his troubles are only just beginning. The Sandman is a Netflix series based on the groundbreaking comic book series created for DC by Neil Gaiman. The series is Executive Produced by Neil Gaiman, Allan Heinberg, & David S. Goyer.
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.
Spoiler: And as someone who has read the novels...
...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.
Spoiler: Answer to question
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.
Would recommend Ganglands (Netflix)
Attention consumed by this right now.
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.
just finished midnight mass on netflix..me and the gf really enjoyed it..
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.
Definitely got weird . . .
It only had 2 seasons right?
These three I can't wait for. Plenty of time to finish the final season of Lucifer by the time Witcher season 2 drops.
I don't know, I gave up.
You should watch the last episode of season 2 . . . might provide some satisfaction.
