Every now and then I wish for an adaptation of Frederick Forsyths “The Shepherd”

 

Then I think about that and wish they don’t

The only good thing about the series was it prompted me to read the book and the follow up Massacre of Mankind.

 

i don’t understand why the story was not honoured 

Ah, haven’t dared try Massacre of Mankind. I read another of his and though he can do plot, I thought his characterisation and especially dialogue were poor. 

 

I’d love a TV adaptation of the Rime of the Ancient Mariner myself.

@JohnTThe Canadian Broadcasting Company radio reading by “Fireside Al” Maitland is pretty good. I listen to it every Christmas Eve, a glass of good whisky in my hand...

Ah, a man after my own heart. I have that on cd and the Robert Powell narration on old fashioned magnetic tape. I can never make up my mind as to whether it goes best on Christmas Eve with Whisky, Drambuie or a really good Port

heres 🥃 to you

 

ps. If it was to be done then I can think of a certain producer a la Wingnut Wings that could do a decent job

Now, a proper adaptation of "Starship Troopers" would be nice maybe follow up with " The Forever War".

The Forever War was supposed to be turned into a movie with Ridley Scott directing and Channing Tatum starring, however i haven't heard much about it over the last few years.... but it has moved closer to production in the last 5 years than the previous 20!

Racetrack.........I like your dry sense of humour about Dracula going to suck!     It's what he does best!

 

Seen a few references to 'The Massacre of Mankind' in this thread that I would gather is a modern writer's follow up to War of the Worlds.

Guess that the Martians are coming back for  second pop in this one!
