Foundation TV Series: Some Gushing for the Cleons

F
The reason I call myself a science fiction fan is that I love science fiction’s capacity to explore the human condition by comparing “us” (our in-group) to something different. This might be done via different cultures, technologies, biologies, environments, etc. I love it when a well-written story changes something and explores how that change ripples out, transforming how existence works for the characters and cultures under consideration. When a story does this well, I find it absolutely magical. I also find it’s frustratingly rare. And, therefore, I am over the moon to have found this kind of sci-fi with Foundation’s Cleons.
