My Thoughts

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:

The Dune Trailer Better Be Awesome Because Foundation IS EPIC!

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.
