    @Jacobkosh I totally forgot someone was doing a Foundation series. The vague sense of Apple TV's output so far I have from reviews floating around the ether is that they're kind of blah, and this looks like an ad for a rip-roaring SF action adventure, which the Foundation books aren't, but hey ho.

    Which is kind of funny as rip-roaring SF Action Adventure is the complete opposite of most of the Foundation stories. Its all about how the great forces of history makes individual choice irrelevant. At least until the Mule pops into view.

    The original is very, very good. Presumably the second will be without Gibson, who is a terrible person and is in the news for being a terrible person, again.

    @Bogart I watched the trailer, I was like "hmm," and then David S. Goyer's name came up. Fucking Christ, he can't keep his greasy hands off anything I like. I wish he would fuck all the way off forever. Foundation was not missing edgelord violence and 90s suburban-white-guy cynicism from the auteur who brought us Blade.

    Man, I really want this to be good as a Foundation fan, but that trailer definitely does not evoke the right feelings. For my sanity, I’m going to remain cautiously optimistic that they put together a misleading trailer to bring in a bigger audience.

    Edit:
    Cautiously optimistic is probably the wrong term. More like naively hopeful, or climate-change-denier stubborn defiance.

    David S. Goyer is like the back seat of your '92 Trans Am that still smells like barf when the weather gets warm from the time you partied too hard when celebrating your brother getting off probation.

    This anti-Tool agenda is as sad as trying to turn Foundation into some sort of sci-fi action drama TV series. Or really, into a TV series at all.

    She says he made those comments 25 years ago or more, it's not anything new. I mean, he could be better, worse or the same, but it's not something he did last week.

    'Ryder first made the allegation back in 2010 during an interview with GQ, according to the New York Post. She said that the alleged incident took place in 1995.'

    I also wouldn't characterize Winona's career as ruined by a shoplifting indecent when Mr. Deeds was right around the corner. Shoplifting was like, a push start. Longfellow Deeds threw the car in gear and hit the gas.

    And Winona now stars in one of the biggest TV shows in the world so it all worked out in the end. Gibson is unfortunately still rich as fuck from his heyday but what are you gonna do?

    It's only that way because cable has decided to make it that way. With better consumer protections in regards to digital media, all this splintered content shit would not need to be a thing.

    It would take a lot more than just a single rule change. It would need a badly-needed overhaul of copyright law to bring digital media rights into this century at a minimum, plus striking down all this region locking bullshit at the same time. It's utterly insane that something like Netflix has to have three different lineups of shows for three different countries because of geographic boundaries, and then you have to multiply that for all the different services and all the different regions.

    Basically, there should be an assload more material in the public domain, a streaming service should be able to put everything it has a license for in any region it wants, the likes of Disney should get to say fuck-all about the duration of copyrights, and most shows that exist now should be on a flat fee system for licensing instead of this insane exclusive, massively-overpriced system. If five different services feel like adding MASH to their lineup in every region in which they operate, it should all cost them the same licensing fee. Obviously material made exclusively by a given service should stay exclusive to that service for a certain number of years, but stuff past, say, thirty years old should not need a stupid amount of digging to find who currently has the streaming rights.

    There's only like three media companies in this country, so why do they keep chopping up their content and spreading it around? I should only need those three, Netflix, and Amazon. That should cover everything. But I can't because fuck knows.

    Because they can maybe get the same person to subscribe to 2-4 streaming services dedicated to their individual broadcast companies by splintering their IP amongst them.

    You can definitely get to a state like Spotify where the content isn't exclusive at all and it goes for bargain basement prices. The flip side of that is how absolutely TERRIBLE it is for the people who actually make, produce and edit that content.
