What Went Wrong?

I loved the podcast, the show runners and the host make it extremely enjoyable. And I loved the Empire portion of the show, but I tuned in to figure out what went wrong on with the Terminus plot. I’m extremely disappointed they chose to degrade the character of Salvor and the overall Foundation plot. What’s even more upsetting is their inventions on the Trantor side of the story were wonderful. Anyways, still enjoyed the show and the commentary despite my disappointments.

Where is Season 2

When Apple announced that it would be airing Foundation I was very excited. When Season 1 can out I totally enjoyed Apple’s adaption of the series. So much so I signed up for a subscription to Apple TV. Now season 1 is complete I am ready to cancel my subscription and will resubscribe in 2023 if Foundation is continued.

There are few original Sci-fi programs on Apple TV I have enjoyed. And for the most part those are from other channels. Apple you need to get in gear and deliver compelling content. Else people will go other places or channels with rich and consistent content.
