Dune - I don't know what it would be like for folks who haven't read the book or seen the other movie version, but I found it epic and amazing. If you can brave going to a theater, see it there.ETA: 5 terms you need to understand for 'Dune' to make any sense https://ftw.usatoday.com/lists/dune-movie-glossary-spice-melange-fremen-bene-gesserit-mentat
Ghosts (US) - Rose McIver (iZombie) has a new show, a remake of the UK Ghosts. Right off the bat it's 1,000% weird seeing her paired with a South Asian man who is not Rahul Kohli. Haven't seen the original show but the first two episodes of this show are very not for me. Acting is very broad, jokes rarely seem funny, etc. Maybe this show will be canceled and Rose can do something better, perhaps as some humorous superhero for Marvel.ETA: The UK Ghosts is on HBO Max and is much, much better.
Teresa from Concord said:I’ve been hearing pretty bad reviews (except for BM) so I’m hesitant to watch. I was such a fan of the books and have been burned too many times by crappy adaptations.
No harm in waiting for the season to finish before watching. Even if you decide to not watch the show, it's worth watching the first episode just for the visuals.
