you just listed my biggest problem with this concept. The first movie being the first 2 books, and the Waste Lands being on TV. IMO, Waste Lands is the best book of the 7, and I would really hate to see a watered down version of it on TV. Now, if it works out where it is a good thing that they are able to take the extra time from a TV series to really capture the minor details, that would be great. But i think it would lose the epicness that a full movie would have.
I agree with you. Besides the 1st book, Waste Lands is also my fave. I'd love for the Waste Lands to get an entire season on tv (If it was HBO or AMC), I'm not really sold on NBC though...
A couple other problems I see:
they are probably going to go for a PG13 rating to get more of an audience
you would think they would want a name actor to carry this thing, is a big name actor going to settle for 2 season of tv?
2 seasons of TV and 3 feature films.
I agree that this has the potential to be so bad it's unwatchable but with that you also get the potential for it be to one of the best adaptation events in film/tv history.
I'm excited to see where it goes.
