Happy Ent Posted January 30, 2017 Share Posted January 30, 2017 Rereading book 1 and watching the first episode now. I lot of decisions in the TV show leave me puzzled. Why would the Cant burn so hard as to jeopardize the ship in order to answer the distress beacon? When the Knight is attacked by missiles by the bad guys (another microannoyment making the torpedoes “miss” the Knight to get to the Canterbury makes absolutely no sense, and I’m not sure the TV version is better drama than the book version) we hear that the enemy is 12-thousand klicks away, but the Knight’s display has them at 12 km, and so do the visuals. That is a mistake by a factor 1000, for crying out loud. These small annoyances take no extra effort to get right, and just signal “sloppy production” to me. Either there are absolutely no numerate, scientifically literate people involved in the production at all (which I don’t believe) or there are no error-correction channels. If the latter, I find that inexcusable for a production that aims to have geeks geek out. Grumble-grumble. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
