The Rules of Acquisition: A Star Trek Deep Space Nine Podcast

Much A-Dune About Nothing: An Introduction

December 27, 2017

We interrupt our regular DS9 programming with a special bonus preview of our latest podcast endeavor!

Kickers of Elves will be exploring Frank Herbert's scifi epic, Dune. What makes the world of Arrakis endure for scifi fans? Why is the book such a "white whale" to adapt for filmmakers?

This limited series podcast will begin with the text itself, and progress through multiple "failed" interpretations, from Jodorowsky, to Lynch, to the SiFi miniseries, and finally to what we might expect from Denis Villeneuve, director of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049.

In this short introduction however, we'll address our own personal histories with Arrakis, whether we've previously read the book(s), or never even seen the infamous David Lynch movie.

Spoiler: Hugh HATES it.
