It is not unfair at all. There is no reason why I or anyone else has to give it the benefit of the doubt that in motion it would have become something spectacular. All we have is the bible to go by, and one has to base their opinion on that solely. There is no "what if" situation that is allowed here.Originally Posted by Dynamo of Eternia
I know how series bibles work. If the series bible is boring, who wants to pick up the show? The bible can be a selling point along with your pilot script. In fact, a rule of thumb is to create a series bible for yourself before you even begin on a script to flesh everything out. The bible should be engaging, it is not just a simple outline of "He-Man - Main hero who has the power of Grayskull" etc.Your whole arguement is that you don't find the bible 'entertaining.' But its not really meant to be entertaining as much as its meant to be informative as to the layout and plot of the show.
Or the final product would be even less entertaining.It is not the final product and is therefore not as entertaining as the final product would be.
I guess you just haven't read any really good series bibles. *shurg* I do not like the concept of He-Ro Son of He-Man at all. How do I know this? I read the only material available - the series bible.You are entitled to your opinion, but it just seems like you are basing your opinion on He-Ro lacking something that a blueprint/layout of the show's concept simply would not have anyway.
As I said above, I am not going to base my comments on a "what if" situation. Sure, in motion, there is the possibility that the series could be really cool and that I would have loved it. I fully admit that. However, if I was reading just this bible, I would have passed on the series or required there to be a major overhaul on not only the concept, but some of the character designs as well.
