The recent release of Altered Carbon (which I enjoyed a lot) on Netflix (https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2018/feb/01/altered-carbon-review-ambitious-netflix-sci-fi-is-flashy-flawed-and-fun?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Google%2B) makes me feel slightly hopeful that one day a similar network decides to adapt the Gap Saga onto television. I think it certainly has a lot of characteristics that would make it eminently suitable for a TV series:

- it has a tense story with subplots, surprises
- it deals with a similar universal theme (what makes us human) which always feels relevant no matter how many shows try to comment on it
- it has several strong characters, but their number is limited, so no need for a large cast
- a lot of it takes place in closed spaces (spaceships, space stations) so suitable for a studio environment
- and it's good! Smile

Amani! Wow, good to see you around. Very Happy

Yeah, the GF is watching that (Altered Carbon).

And agreed, the Gap would make a good GoT style series. Could fit it all in without butchering it too much.

Now go post other places, like Gen Disc, so people actually know you're back. Wink

Those who know me have no need of my name:)

I have been posting/commenting on and off in other sections as well.
