They got the rights to the best material - the first trilogy and the Empire series. Sweet Galactus they're going to shit on Feist.

Assuming the worst isn't the best way to be objective. Is there some reason you feel it's going to shitnon the author?

Depends on how much creative control Feist has over the scripts. If you've got a situation similar to Good Omens, it might turn out all right.

But those writing credits for the showrunners? Holy shit. Weak. Fear the Walking Dead had some of the most unsympathetic characters seen (at least one person told me they were rooting for the zombies after a few episodes).

Were they less sympathetic than the characters on Stargate: Universe? Other than the math guy, I just couldn't care that they were lost in space.

Can't tell if you're serious. But I have very little faith in novel-to-cinema adaptations. They tend to be middling-at-best. But BAD is normal. Much like I don't care for covers for songs, or remakes. There is *always* an exception to the norm. The norm in this case is poor.
