It’s a fine line I try to walk. I’ve loved any kind of Time Travel shows/movies. Started with Doctor Who and the Tomorrow People as a boy I’d pick them up, good or bad, and get hooked.
Last thing I let myself get hooked on was the Stargate franchise. I HAD to watch them all, right to the end of the last series.
So what I do instead is I get overviews from people who are fandom. I’ve read many books I’ve never read and many movies I’ve never seen through the eyes and emotions of others who were true fans.
I find it works well for me. I know it sounds weird – I mean it’s a movie. It’s a set of books. But I know it’s the kind of thing that’s more than that.
Maybe you could tell me what’s meaningful about Dune to you. I will learn far more that way.
