can't wait to see this! september 24th cannot come soon enough!

Apple has had some great shows. I hope this will live up to the promise of this epic trilogy. Can't wait!

avatar

Should have been labeled 'loosely based on the books by Isaac Asimov'.... Absolutely butchered the books... Disgrace... Woke nonsense On a positive note, it is beautifully made and the actors do an excellent job.

avatar

Before going into this I was expecting a slow paced epic journey and after 2 episodes that's what it is. Hopefully it is laying the foundation for something worthwhile......to be continued.

avatar

I don't have a fucking clue

avatar

OMG cannot wait!! I read the books umpteen times since the age of 14! Simply the best sci-fi ever. Looks like the TV show will do the books justice. Well done Apple TV!!!!

avatar

I've never been hyped more!

What’s happening with this show? Where is it?

The production value on this is visablly fucking insane. What a gorgeous show. And with only 2 episodes out I am already hooked like haven't been by a show in a long time. EDIT after full first season: Damn, I'm disappointed right now. It started off so well with the first episode. But with each passing episode it felt more like two different shows. One on Trantor about Empire. Which was fucking amazing science fiction and mesmerizing to watch. But also one on Terminus about the Foundation itself. Which felt like a cheap SyFy spinoff in the same universe. Very bizarre. Still an entertaining watch throughout but it could have been so much better. BTW. I haven't read the books.

Damn!!!!!! What a show there should be more quality series just like this from the visuals to the storytelling it's perfectly produced. This show left me speechless. This has to be one of the best shows in TV history. :fire::fire::fire: It is one of the best shows I have ever seen. Great series. This show is f**king brilliant. I've got a feeling This series is up there with the best. I've never seen a show produced this well. Love this show, it is five stars and should definitely be on everyone's watch list. whoever directed it did an amazing job. The blocking, excitement, power, subtle yet always there. Love how they heightened the court scene. One of the best series ever made. WOW!!!

Beautifully shot but writers have butchered the characters, really disappointed.

This show is awful. I thought I’d give it a chance and watch both episodes. The characters are dull and the acting isn’t any better.

Outstanding production, acting and CGI! If you’ve read the seven books you may have issues with the screenplay and the “Apple-fication” of several aspects of the show. I expected that though. Some people seem to refer to this as “woke”. I call it writing a screenplay for modern times based on a universe and fictional society conceived nearly 80 years ago. Actual society and audiences have changed. If you’re hung up on that aspect you may not enjoy this as much. As for myself, I loved the books and thoroughly enjoyed the first two episodes of the show! Seeing this universe come to life on my screen is amazing to me!

Watched first 2 episodes. Slow and not very interesting. The characters are completely devoid life - they might as well have been robots. There's no reason to be interested in any person in this show they are so one-dimensional. The show only becomes remotely interesting in the final 2 minutes - convenient to get you to watch the next episode's drivel...until the final 2 minutes...so you'll watch the next episode... NOPE, done. Visually - 8/10 Story 3/10 Watchable 0/10

avatar

The pilot episode is just brilliant. Wipes the floor with the rest of new sci fi television. The vistas and scenic design may be the best since Lynch's Dune. Watch on the biggest screen you've got.

avatar

Take a scifi pillar and destroy it like one of Trantor's space elevators. Awful butchering of the story. [spoiler] Daneel is not. genderswapped is fine, but he's unmasked immediately and is made into a weakling Dors Venabili---gone Hari is no better than a kidnapper Reych...kills Hari what? [/spoiler] Pretty trash is still trash.

avatar

The girl is just too annoying.

avatar

After 5 episodes i still have no idea what this is about :’)

There are comments saying "butchered the books" etc. Darn.. I've read them too, I love them too, but to be honest you're wrong. God damn it... read the fricking description: "Based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov(...)" it's not even adaptation. So don't expect it to follow the same story-line, don't expect the same characters, finally don't expect it to be reflection of the book. Show is brilliant. I love it.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
