I thought this could be a fun topic to discuss. Any book favorites of yours that you wish were given the Lord of the Rings treatment? Or like Game of Thrones? After all not everything would require 6+ seasons with around 10 hours of material in each to tell it's story. And of course shorter works that don't have the filler to make a TV series and would be better as a movie/movie series. Then just because something would fit better as a TV show maybe it wouldn't work anyway. Some stories might need the visuals and effects that wouldn't work on such a small budget. What do you most want to see, and how could it be done? Director and writers also matter immensely, as well as network or studio. I doubt the Lord of the Rings would have been as great if Michael Bay had directed it. Or imagine Game of Thrones on the CW.. So of course what I'd like to see is the Dresden Files as a TV series. It could be fcking spectacular and I think would be real popular if done right. How and where? Preferably on a network like HBO, AMC, Starz perhaps? 10 episodes per season and they could fit in 2 of the books, maybe more who knows. The stories are fast paced, action packed, incredibly funny as well. Episodic stories that would get resolved quickly enough that viewers wouldn't get bored, while at the same time playing the long game with huge interconnected plots and recurring characters. With 15 books out they would always know where it's all going and could do amazing foreshadowing. Instead what we get is cheap tries at Shannara, Shadowhunters, Eragon, The Golden Compass and so many others. Firstly, what they pick is not even close to some of the really good stuff out there (The Golden Compass being an exception), secondly they don't even fcking try to make it good, they have to do it half assed so it ends up sucking. Of course it doesn't perform well then.. Seriously while working on Eragon who thought it was a good idea to have the newly hatched Saphira magically transform into a full grown dragon in under 5 seconds during her first flight! I mean I know Inheritance isn't written very well but it was my childhood dammit.
