Love it!

Great podcast and good explanations for someone like myself that hasn’t read the books.

Easter eggs? Come on…

Nice to get a feel for how the writers decided to flesh out the stories. I knew if this ever got made there would be challenges because as good as the ideas in the books are, by themselves they are not great material for the screen.

I have a bone to pick with the comments in Ep 5 about “Easter eggs”. It would sure be nice if the inside jokes about names and things you decided to insert into the show would have paid off for fans of Asimov’s work and maybe not just for your immediate family. Like Nick Fury’s headstone, or R2D2 in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Seems simultaneously selfish and lazy.
