Isaac Asimov’s Foundation as a tv series, part 1

Posted on September 26, 2021 by Bryan Alexander

Apple TV just launched a new series, a serial adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s famous Foundation series. I’d like to review it here, partly for professional reasons, since the stories are famous examples of futuring science fiction. Personally, I’m fond of Foundation since I first read it around age 12.

To begin, I took a pleasant break and reread the first half of the first book. I’ll share some of the high points here, then switch to the tv adaptation.
