  1. I’ll watch it.
    While we’re talking I’d like to see a faithful adaptation of Anne Rice’s Vampire books.

  2. I want to see more sci-fi! If you want a seriously epic new GoT then do webers safehold series. That would be intense.

  3. I’ll watch it until they move away from TOLKIEN’s world into Peter Jackson’s or whoever changes the script. Stay with Tolkien’s format (including background!!!) and I’ll stay with the show.

  4. Great Sci/fantasy TV shows stay alive when they keep production costs down. This will be gone after one season unless they employee all unknown talent.

  5. The movies were fantastic why do they need to reboot them? Get some fresh ideas. Miles Cameron’s fantasy saga of The Red Knight would be a better alternative. Or for sci-fi The Red Rising series about Mars is fantastic!

  6. We have the books…
    We have the movies which, while they were good, didn’t stay ‘faithful’ to the books in some important areas.
    …..and now we have a TV series being proposed/created.
    Whichever way you look at it, even though they claim that it will be ‘the most expensive series ever’ the budget will still be lower than for the films…..I can see some ‘artistic compromises’ occurring. There is no way they can do this properly.

  7. I know writers are stuggling with new ideas these days and theres been a massive shift toward series for obvious reasons but ffs, leave it a while. Revisit it further down the line when ideas and adaptions and re-adaptions well and truley start to dry up.

  8. Disappointing efforts except for the BBC Radio Four version of 1981 which kept to the book perfectly. Won’t watch it. Probably CGI infested crap.
