I've had a crush on Molly Ringworld since the first time I saw Sixteen Candles.

Ant: Damnit! I got Discworld confused with Ringworld. I was hoping to see Rincewind and Two-Flower.



Discworld + Ringworld = Frisbee-Golf Universe!

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: skyotter: xraygun: No idea how they are going to make puppeteers walk worth a damn.
I hope they ditch the idiocy of the mouths for hands. Nessus drinking a glass of carrrot juice just doesn't work. Having a mouth for a hand in a spacesuit isn't any good either. Thr whole tool maker deal does not work with an eye right on top of the appendage. Sorry, rant over.
There's a lot to work with there. Bey, Sigmund, Nathan. With all the retcon from the later books, they have years of material. I wonder where they start. Probably right at Louis's birthday, hopefully with the Earth turning the right direction.

I think the head-mouth-hands would translate visually better than the tripod gait.  Imagine this with two heads:

Oh, fark; why hasn't anyone built a Puppeteer bot?


Because it would start to interfere with birthright lotteries, duh!

Trik: you do know that she looks nothing like that anymore, right?


I don't look like I did in 1984, either.

give me doughnuts: This text is now purple: mjjt: A couple of the books have been animated - I've got a DVD of Soul Music that I keep meaning to watch again sometime.

The cartoons have pretty crap animation quality and VO work.
Now I have a sad.

Hogfather and Going Postal were pretty good.
Haven't seen "Going Postal," but I loved "Hogfather."

Unfortunately, Charles Dance isn't getting any younger and Michelle Dockery has moved on to bigger things. Coyle and Foy are probably still available, but Moist and Adora only enter the series at the very end.
Who would you like to see cast as the younger version of Susan for a live-action "Soul Music."

Going Postal

was a f*cking train wreck.

Unless it's only being shown in Super Duper IMAX Ringworld will look like "fifty feet of baby-blue Christmas ribbon one inch wide. String it in a circle, on edge on the floor, and put a candle in the middle" and nothing more.   Scale like that just doesn't fit in the human brain.
