In December of the year 2000, the SyFy channel aired a new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Dune 2000 was actually the first mini-series that the Sci-Fi Channel had ever released and a whopping 20 million dollars was spent on 3 episodes, which were a pretty decent amount for a TV miniseries at the time. But this was still a pretty small budget considering that the David Lynch film when adjusting for inflation spent nearly 4 times as much. Regardless, Dune 2000 was a huge hit, doubling all viewership records for the network at the time and receiving an average of 4.4 million households over the course of the three nights in which the mini-series aired.

They’ll be a few minor spoilers in this one, guys. As I said earlier, power in Dune is not typically discussed in these terms, but considering the fact that there are several characters in the Dune universe who would seem superhuman if they were to appear in real life, maybe it’s actually an interesting topic. So I thought it would be fun to rank the characters. Let’s go from least powerful to most powerful. Also, I will only be discussing Frank Herbert’s Original six Dune books for this video!

Sand Whale And Me

What is it?

The 2016 Japanese live action and animated micro-series Sand Whale And Me.

What is it about?

This how Wikia describes this micro-series:

Sand Whale and Me is the story of a female paratrooper in the distant future who is stranded in a vast desert.

With limited supply of food and water, her only hope is to catch a sand whale from a pack.

If she can’t, her life may just hang in the balance.[1]

The series also has a video game aspect, with portions of each episode featuring 3rd person point of view, similar to 3rd person shooters.

During these portions, there are also status bars in the corners of the screen that show the main character’s health, level, experience, weapon selected and ammunition remaining.

Final Thoughts

I am sorry Mamoru Oshii but this was one of the worst television shows that I watched on television this year, and it was the worst or next to worst show in the Adult Swim Toonami lineup this year.

This micro-series was strange, illogical, incoherent, et cetera; it was like watching someone’s crazy nonsensical Japanese comedic dream in the form of a micro television series.

I was hoping that it would be more like a Japanese version of Frank Herbert’s Dune, but instead it ended up being a nonsensical mess that got lost in translation I guess.

One good thing though is that it was a very short television show that was probably less than 30 minutes long, and so I was able to survive watching it; otherwise I would not have watched all of it.

The end,

Dream 1

I forgot most of my first dream but I barely remember a few parts of my first dream which started inside on an upper floor of a fictional dimly lit multi-story building that had medium-to-dark color carpeted floors and narrow hallways, and I was there with other people; but I can not remember what happened during most of this part of the dream.

Eventually I went outside of the building and it was day time outside and I was in a fictional place that felt high like this area was higher in the air than normal, I walked to a sidewalk next to a small road where there were businesses that you could window shop from the sidewalk, and I over-heard a conversation between a man with dark brownish colored skin who was bald and who wore glasses as he talked to a man with whitish colored skin with medium length blondish colored hair and a man with dark brownish colored skin with blackish colored hair in a fade-like hairstyle.
