The Adaptation Game
It was recently pointed out to me that books would make much better TV show adaptations than movie adaptations. There’s more time for character development, producers wouldn’t necessarily need to cut any content die hard fans would be hoping for, and writers could be more faithful to the original canon. However dragging a story out too long could lose the audience. Discuss the pros and cons of both.
