Excellent.

Had seen it before and would recommend it to anyone searching out a good sci-fi miniseries.

The books are brutally fine.

I think I'll get the books... Just a good story.

The sci-fi channel series? It was ok. I liked the older movie from the '80's.

The book was far better than either of them.

You don't like hearing about the life and maniacal plans of a half-man half-annelid drugged out psychic fortune telling space tyrant who keeps cloning his father's best friend over and over and over ?

Oh, that one was written by Frank Herbert too.

Really the only good one was the original book.

I must not fear.

Fear is the mind-killer.

Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.

I will face my fear.

I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing......Only I will remain.

I've heard that. I just downloaded the first book's anniversary edition.

Dune Messiah/Children of Dune are decent...but yeah they start going off the rails at God-Emperor and dont get me started on the stuff his kid and Kevin Anderson put out. I tried a couple of them before I learned my lesson.

They did "Children" too.

The TV mini series Dune and Children of Dune were excellent. Plus most of the women in them were SMOKING hot.

LONG LIVE THE FIGHTERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!



whoops ........... that was the movie

I like the David Lynch film. Extended version fills in a lot of stuff that was left on the cutting room floor in the original.

I was at the start of the first mini-series but it grew on me once I stopped trying to make it mesh with the books and original film.

Second mini-series was excellent as well.

Re-read the books every few years (I'm overdue).

Read the first book that Herbert's kid did and never bothered with the rest of them.

I need to get the David Lynch version. Word is that Herbert like that version although it didn't do well at the box office.

Got it on DVD... about once a year I pop it in and enjoy. Children of Dune is good as well.
