It’s so hard to choose just 5! Seriously, today’s topic should rather be a top 50 not just 5 ;). I’d start with the stories that technically have tv-shows already, but they are not good enough, but maybe I’ll skip these. Well, except one that most fans agree NEVER HAPPENED! And the movie too. But they’ll make a better one (I hope), so let’s move on and hope for the best. Oh, and I’m talking about the first place here 😉
Ancient Egypt series by Wilbur Smith. I’d love to see a good adventure series Indiana Jones-like and that’s exactly what Smiths series is. Starting in ancient Egypt (which I can’t resist) and moving on to modern times, discovering some ancient mysteries. I love this series! And I’d love to watch some cool recreation of ancient Egypt.
Dresden files by Jim Butcher, or rather a continuation. Yes, I’m among these few people who actually liked that one season and want to see more. I wouldn’t mind a completely new show, but I liked Blackthorne as Harry and I kind of miss it. And yes, I admit the story was a bit messed up, but if the TV-show doesn’t follow the books exactly it doesn’t mean it’s bad.
Steps of Power by J.J. Sherwood would make a fantastic and epic fantasy series. Imagine all these sexy elves on the screen, the magic, the plotting! So many occasions for a cliff hanger! And deaths that even G.R.R. Martin would be proud of ;).
Lunar chronicles by Marissa Meyer because sci-fi looks awesome on TV, add to that a great story and fantastic characters and you’ve got a perfect recipe for top TV-show. Should I add more?
Witcher by Andrzej Sapkowski because it should be awesome and it should happen already. Let BBC make it and make it epic! Because it deserves it. I can’t wait to see the new movie they suppose to be making. So many hopes, so many chances to mess it up!
What stories would you turn into TV-shows?
Or maybe into movies?
BTW, I’ve watched “Allegiant” two days ago… Soooo wrong! They messed it up badly. Well, I don’t mind that she lived, but so many things were wrong! I didn’t like the last book much, but it kind of made sense… more or less… the movie didn’t.
