Movie vs. TV (was Re: Big News)
- But it took PJ about 4 hours per movie to even get near the books. (And
there are still discussions about how it could have been better...)
I vote for the TV series too. More time for detail and more to watch in
the end. :-)

- Don't know either, just wondering... it all depends on the producer and on their trust, I suppose... if I remember well New Line trusted Peter Jackson to make LOTR, that's why I thought about financial support (with Weta Workshop and all that was built for LOTR, I don't think this could have been done through a serie).
But I agree : it seems that in the US some series are really well supported with great actors and great scripts... We'll see, I guess. It seems to move pretty fast according to Facebook : CSquared team and Lynn have already been working on the script for 1 week...
