Sci-Fi Channel's New Dune Mini-Series

february 14, 2003

Looks like the Sci-Fi channel is really into Frank Herbert's Dune. They have made a new mini-series "Children of Dune" which will premiere on March 16th. I'm still trying to work (notice word choice) my way through the first Sci-Fi channel mini-series based on Herbert's first Dune book. At the Sci-Fi channel's website there are forums and one of the hot topics there is a comparison between Dune and The Lord of the Rings. I find LotR a helluva lot more entertaining than Dune (both literary-wise and film-wise). I can watch LotR and the time will fly. Dune is just slow.
