    The Peripheral

    Will Amazon ever get tired of throwing money at adaptations of SF novels? Gibson works in trilogies so The Agency, his next one, will be set in the same universe(s).

    Blade Runner 2049

    I wonder what proportion of the Blu-ray sales are 4k? It must have helped Sony sell a few tellies...

    The City & The City - BBC China Miéville adaptation

    It has struck me recently that with all the discussion of the ‘invisible border’ between Northern Ireland and the Republic post Brexit the book has become weirdly relevant recently.
  7. Saw a trailer tonight for the BBC’s adaptation of China Miéville’s novel, starring David Morrissey, which means it must be fairly imminent. Love the book, hope this does it justice. https://www.panmacmillan.com/blogs/picador/the-city-the-city-coming-to-tv-in-2018
  8. This (spoiler-free) quote from that review: ...is especially encouraging if you’ve seen Alien: Covenant.

    Star Trek Discovery - new TV show materialising 24 Sep 2017

    They should do a crossover with the Reynholm Universe from the IT Crowd.

    Blade Runner 2049

    That’s terrible. Fordlandia is one of my all-time favourite albums.

    Metropolis - before Superman

    We could have loads of these. Like... Amity: a police chief and his young family move to a small seaside town and gets involved with the local politicians. The final shot of the pilot is a long view of the town and the waves lapping... sinisterly. Thule: an exciting drama about a Norwegian research station in the Antarctic. They recover ice samples, but nothing else... at least until the end of the second season. etc
