I just don't know who this is for? Pratchett fans are going to hate it, and no one else will be interested. Its a non-starter.

This started before good omens. Terry announced it back in 2013 that he had signed the paperwork that morning when we saw him talk. They had storyline ideas and stuff from him. They then took a very different approach when he died rather than staying true to the characters

"Adaptation" and "Terry Pratchett's" are doing a lot of heavy lifting there. From everything I've seen it has very little to do with what he wrote or intended.

This looks absolutely awful. Why go through the pretence of claiming to be an adaptation of Sir Terry's work? Just create an original fantasy series.

This is the Ankh Morpork city watch. I'm not sure who that lot in the other picture is.

It isn’t an adaptation. It’s a ‘waving the names from the books vaguely over a script and hoping Discworld fans buy it’ job.

Those of us in the know have been chanting "Inspired by characters created by Terry Pratchett" because it's the truth - whereas this headline is not the truth by any means. It's not an adaptation !!!!!!

And that's the point. The point of Lady Sybil Ramkin and Sam Vimes is that they're both well past the first flush youth. They aren't catches but they found each other. Clearly who ever came up with this wanted to make some other show and just slapped a familiar name on it.

Lara Rossi is going to get roasted for not even being remotely close to Lady Sybil Ramkin. The focus will be on her skin color but that isn't the issue. The issue is that Lady Sybil is supposed to be a tall, large, battleship of a woman who is middle aged and not beautiful.

“I'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it.” Terry Pratchett quote dedicated to those who made this “adaptation”.
