Today, the highly-anticipated series Foundation premieres on Apple TV+. The series is based off the genre-defining sci-fi novels by writer Isaac Asimov and features Jared Harris as ‘Hari Seldon’ fighting against the Galactic Empire, led by Lee Pace as ‘Brother Dusk’. Foundation is exclusively available on Apple TV+. You can...
Sometimes, when I’ve finished watching something and I’m just sitting, processing, not yet ready to move onto my next task, my Apple TV goes into screensaver mode. There’s a large library of very beautiful videos, most of them taken from a slight or extreme remove: a camera following a pod of dolphins, drone footage of a busy California pier or marina in Dubai, or one of my favorites, rice paddies in China. All of them, even the more close-up, underwater-themed ones, share a feeling of distance and abstraction, like watching the world as a gorgeous high-def system of patterns divorced from any one narrative or character. They are great screensavers — mesmerizing, visually rich, captivating while also functionally empty — and I am sincere when I say that I love them. I love them in the same way I have, at various points in my life, loved Magic Eye posters, coloring books, things arranged in rainbow order, and those boxes full of blunted pins you press your hand against and then flip over to see the three-dimensional image.
With clone emperors in haute couture and exotic wolf-lizards poised to attack, Foundation and For All Mankind herald a new era of ravishing spectaculars. Can they do for sci-fi what Game of Thrones did for fantasy?
“That doesn’t mean it won’t all work out.”. That, in a nutshell, is Foundation, the new science fiction series from creators David S. Goyer (the journeyman genre storyteller of Dark Knight Trilogy fame) and Josh Friedman. Adapted—in some cases very loosely—from the landmark series of novels by sci-fi godhead Isaac Asimov, Foundation is a story about people anticipating the greatest calamity ever to befall humankind, and choosing to look at it as a glass-half-full situation.

Apple TV+’s adaptation of Foundation, the seminal, award-winning sci-fi book series by Isaac Asimov, is set to stream in a few short weeks. Asimov’s story is a sprawling one that spans over a thousand years, and based on breathtaking scenes from the trailers, it looks like Apple has invested heavily in bringing the epic tale to the screen.

Isaac Asimov is generally regarded as one of the greatest science fiction authors of all time, his works adapted into multiple media. And now Apple TV+ is set to premiere Foundation, an adaptation of Asimov’s book series of the same name. Foundation is easily Asimov’s most famous work and in 1966, it won the one-time Hugo Award for “Best All-Time Series.” The novels have had an impact beyond fiction, seeping into real-world social science.
If you love both science-fiction and epic storytelling, you can’t help but hope the folks behind the new Apple TV+ adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s acclaimed “Foundation” series have gotten it right. Other studios have held the rights to the late author’s sprawling, Roman Empire-inspired saga — begun as a series...

Foundation (Apple TV+ series) — Isaac Asimov’s classic novel gets a heady adaptation starring the always great Jared Harris and Lee Pace. The sci-fi story revolves around exiles who are working to rebuild civilization even as the galaxy falls apart (sounds familiar!). A great deal of attention has been paid to the epic scale of the show, which Apple TV+ appears to want to be its Game of Thrones. The good news here, though, is that the story won’t closely adhere to the books, which should (hopefully) prevent the same sort of finale-season conundrum that we saw with Thrones.
Lee Pace knows how good it is to be Emperor of the Galaxy but as he takes the lead in AppleTV+’s sprawling “Foundation,” it’s also quite complicated. “Foundation” is an ambitious 10-episode first season of one of the late sci-fi icon Isaac Asimov’s key works, a series chronicling a band of exiles — they call themselves the Foundation — who decide the only way to save the Galactic Empire is by defying it.
