banner_h2o_oct2016

Earlier this week, news came down that Syfy will air a new television adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land. Given Syfy’s track record since abandoning “The Sci Fi Channel” as its brand, we thought we’d speculate on whether this is actually a good idea or not. How do you take what’s essentially a think piece and make watchable television fare? How do you present the more “hippie culture” and philosophical aspects of the story?

How do you get away with all the nudity and sex?

Expectations, speculations, and more as we measure what could be a fantastic outing in television compared to others they’ve produced: DuneAscensionChildhood’s EndHigh Moon
