    If you consider yourself an Asimov purist, or a strong fan of the original Foundation books, you should know that the Apple TV production is a full-blown re-imagining of the underlying story.

    Without giving away too many spoilers, Salvor Hardin is now female, Gaal Dornick is now female. Emperor Cleon is 3 clones ruling simultaneously in the same throne room, Terminus looks like a refugee camp on the Siberian border instead of the home of the authors of the Encyclopedia Galactica, etc.

    The production quality is excellent in many scenes. They clearly have budget, but not Peter Jackson's fidelity to source material.
