    That adaptation is based on Brian Herbert's ideas, so I'll completely ignore that series.

    The character names and setting alone mean it's not a direct adaptation, and seems to be all in name…but go off again about this thing you hate I guess dude.

    The knives people get out for Brian because he wrote things a little more pulpy and soapy and less cerebral than his dad borders on toxic.

    I don't hate Brian Herbert at all. If he wants to milk his father's work for all its worth then go ahead, I'd do the exact same thing.

    Just watched this yesterday, really enjoyed it, especially for some reason the vehicle design (I loved those bug helicopter things!)

    I have read the book once or twice many years ago but don't remember a lot so have no issues around true to the book arguments.

    I missed this post by you Tiste! So glad you enjoyed it.

    Part II comes out in November I believe.

    Oh, and something we've not talked a lot about...

    The TV show started shooting in November (DUNE: SISTERHOOD on HBO Max; a prequel that details the beginnings of the Bene Gesserit order 10k years before DUNE....specifically Villenueve's DUNE, so I expect design similarities)...and the cast is pretty fucking STACKED.

    Emily Watson - Valya Harkonnen
    Shirley Henderson - Tula Harkonnen
    Indira Varma - Empress Natalya
    Sarah-Sofie Boussnina - Princess Ynez
    Shalom Brune Franklin - Mikaela
    Faoileann Cunningham - Sister Jen
    Aoife Hinds - Sister Emeline (Ciran Hinds daughter!)
    Chloe Lea - Lila
    Travis Fimmel - Desmond Hart
    Mark Strong - Emperor Javicco Corrino (Um... Mark Strong as the Emperor of the time? YES PLEASE)
    Jade Anouka - Sister Theodosia
    Chris Mason - Keiran Atreides
    Josh Heuston - Constantine Corrino
    Edward Davis - Harrow Harkonnen

    Oh god they're adapting the Butlerian Jihad aren't they. It's already a write off due to that fact alone.

    That adaptation is based on Brian Herbert's ideas, so I'll completely ignore that series.

    Been Caught Stealing is IMO Jane's Addiction's blandest song. I still can't comprehend how it's their biggest hit.

    I liked how that was done. Ganoes goes off and has his own adventure, then re-enters the story in time for the finale. It was a nice reminder there's a whole world around the story that hasn't stopped just because the most important events are the ones we're reading.

    I would have liked it if they'd mentioned what exactly he's been up to between TBH and TCG. I didn't like how he merely re-enters the story out of the blue.

    So no thoughts on how Ganoes and the Hosts are handled after TBH?
