Until this moment I didn't realise how much I wanted to see Burn Gorman play Murtry. Holy shit, that is excellent casting.

It is really fortunate that the producers have so much faith in the franchise that we can enjoy it still for a while!

I seem to recall hearing, though I've no definite references, that part of the reason the show was picked up by Amazon is that Bezos is a fan of the book series. Dunno how true that is though.

One thing I'm curious about seeing, if the show gets to book seven, is how they'll deal with the time jump. A large part of the appeal of the series is the actors playing the Roci's crew. They really get the characters and the chemistry amongst them is on point. Thing is though, there's something like a 30 year gap between books 6 and 7 and that gap is kind of important for setting consistency. I do wonder how they gonna deal with it. All the approaches I can think of leave much to be desired.

Bezos is a big fan of the book — the source material was on the screen when the executive displayed Amazon's Kindle Fire for the first time to press — and was livid that the TV series went to NBCUniversal-owned Syfy. The move is said to have ignited Bezos' demand that Amazon Studios brass find the company's version of Game of Thrones.

The book this season is based on wasn't my favourite but I'm sure it will translate really well on screen. In any case, December 13th can't get here soon enough.
