Video: Teaser for Asimov-inspired "Foundation"
#1
If you know the books well you may recognize some of the concepts but based only on this teaser it does look like they have updated the story.

I enjoyed the first few books in the Foundation series, which was part of a larger science fiction cycle involving up to a dozen books (if I recall correctly). But Asimov lost me when he had humanity choose a hive-mind future in one of the later books. I know Greg Bear or whomever took over the series tried to salvage the story but I was done with it.

For me the series was about the power of individual choice against overwhelming situational forces. Asimov wanted to tease a different kind of future, but I had no interest in collective intelligences. A character needs to retain individuality for me to connect to it.
