We move from the insanity that was David Lynch Dune to the much better Sci Fi Channel miniseries of Dune and Children of Dune. If you are going to watch a Dune adaptation make it this one. The mini series are both well acted, directed and written. The story is largely true to novel and where it differs it is an improvement in that it clarifies things that Frank Herbert left unclear or streamlines sequences that were clunky and overly long.

The saga of Dune is far from over however as next week we take the crazy up to 12.
