What Is It?
The 2021 Apple TV+ science fiction streaming TV show Foundation (Season 1).
Here is how Metacritic describes this TV show:
Dr. Hari Seldon (Jared Harris) and a small group of believers seeks to preserve human knowledge and save civilization after he predicts the end of the Galactic Empire in this sci-fi series based on the novels by Isaac Asimov.
I learned about this TV show thanks to a YouTube video called The Dune Trailer Better Be Awesome Because Foundation IS EPIC! by the YouTube channel, Quinn’s Ideas:
I never read the Foundation series books by Isaac Asimov, but I had heard of them before.
The trailer looked good, like this show had potential, and so I decided to watch it when it came out; and my brother GC watched it as well.
It had a slower start than expected & this show has flaws, but I like the visuals & the lore potential & the universe & some of the characters & performances.
Some of my favorite characters are: Demerzel, Brother Day, Zephyr Halima, and Hari Seldon.
Some of my favorite performances were by: Laura Birn, Lee Pace, T’Nia Miller, Jared Harris, and Terrence Mann.
The episode with the best performances & my favorite episode was probably episode 8 (The Missing Piece), if every episode was like that episode, this would be the best show of the year.
While this is a flawed show, there are things that I like & I feel that this show has more potential, I hope that they will fix some of the flaws, and I look forward to season 2.
I would recommend watching this TV show, and would rate it a mixed 3.5 – 4 out of 5.
