Of course both are a bit removed from the original books. In which case the old Dune (1980s) was closer. Just wish the rest of the books would be continued in the same manner. Stuff like the God Emperor of Dune, the Heretics of Dune, etc. would give even more "epic" sagas.
Is a broadside what you see when the pirate lass turns around?
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
A person and I were discussing our jobs. I noted I work both the day shift and evening shift.
"Wow, you work long hours!" they exclaimned.
"No I don't," I qualified.
"But, you just said you work the day shift and the evening shift," they denoted.
I concurred, stating, "That's because I have a 5-speed."
Was doing some work at home - assembling kit set furniture. History channel in the background and on comes some story about the JFK shooting, or more pointedly about LHO having help. About 45 minutes of the program played out, (and FMD it's it's just one ep. of a whole series!) literal repetition (as well as a myriad alternate ways of saying the same damn thing again) of the smallest items, in that 45 minutes I'd be surprised if there were maybe 2 minutes of actual story.
History Channel: a few good ideas but always taken way too far. Pawn Stars, Kounts Customs (whatever), Alone, that blacksmith show, Oak Island ... mega-yawn ... Even Vikings was stretched too far. (Haven't watch that Knight Templar series yet, looks OK but likely only the first one maybe two series will be good before it too becomes snooze fest material.)
But that LHO series, well it's crapola right out of the box; History Channel have outdone themselves by bringing us a complete utter steaming turd pile in a very first series.
And as dumb coincidence would have it in one break guess what, a trailer for the new Oak Island series - no I won't be watching that either
And finally the construction is complete, the 2nd half of which was carried out in silence [and a much improving mood]. FM!

The feared pirates from Zeeland tried to rob all my money when I was there on vacation. The first time was not so bad, mostly because I was not even in school yet, had no notable amounts of money and was more interested in catching crabs at the beach.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
