Been watching Foundation on Apple TV Season 1. Pretty good. Started strong in my opinion, but getting hard to follow later in season 1. All the reviews say that season 2 is better. I am ust trying to get to season 2 with the wife. She is still holding on even though not sci-fi fan. I think I can get her there. It would be no fun watching season 2 on my own.

I read the orginal Asmov trilogy many many years ago. Back in high school … when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. And, frankly, I dont remeber much about them - except that they were original, a solid and good story, and had lots and lots of math. I also think the original trilogy spanned many many years - 1000 or so if I recall. So I am wondering how many seasons this might be. My guess is that the number of seasons is directly related to the popularity of the show, not the length of the source material.

The casting and acting so far have been good. Day and Hari and particularly well cast. Gaal too, but I am still on the fence with Salvor. Story is complex and I don’t remember so many religious themes and overtones in the original novels. But again, it was the Jurassic period, so memories fade.

I am on episode 6 right now, just a few more to the end of season 1. I will most likely take a quick break after season 1 before I start season 2, especially since it is getting much better reviews. And I also see that season 3 is coming in 2025.

There is ton of great TV out there now. Take advantage of this golden age. Who knows how long it will last.
