Yesterday, the news that Jonathan Nolan will be adapting Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series for HBO broke, and my mind kind of broke a little as well.
I love Asimov’s work, but the Foundation series holds a special place in my heart. It was the first proper science fiction I’d read and it opened me up to a whole new genre. Admittedly, as a fan, my first thought was “please don’t screw it up”, but the potential it has is too great to ignore. I would love to see the world expanded, the ideas realised, and HBO has a big enough budget to pull off the kind of special sci-fi effects that it would require. It’s almost a dream come true to hear about it coming to TV.
Now that I have one of my favourite sci-fi series of all time headed for the small screen, I want to hear what would your pick would be. Like Trevor, would you want Dune remade, or would you prefer a made-for-TV version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? Let me know what your ultimate sci-fi TV show would be, and why it would make an awesome adaptation.
