Re: Children of Dune (spoilers)

I've just finished watching it on tape. (Have trouble staying up till eleven on school nights. ) I think it came off better than the first series, but still seemed kind of dull - lots of wooden acting. And I think the CGI was overused and unconvincing.

But I liked that they merged the two books together as opposed to dragging out the story even further. I never even made it through the first book (!) because of the exhausting attention to detail. The pace was really good on the first two nights. I'm wondering if the series they're planning takes on the rest of the novels ???

And forgive me for being a David Lynch fan, but I always liked the theatrical movie better than that the telemovie. The story may not have been as accurate, but the acting was miles better.
