Demerzel, I think.The is along with the last robot whiose name I forget.
Sure, that works in terms of establishing events, but it's not emotionally effective if you're not already invested in the setting's established premise.
I think you might be dead on there. Especially sinceI'm starting to think that Gaal is the Mule.
That's assuming that he's still a pre-programmed recording, as he was in the novels. He could just as easily be another Seldon AI, who's been observing all along and can change his narrative to accommodate current events.Well, I expect Hari the Hologram will explain it all in the next episode. Although it might be interesting if there is a discrepancy between what the recording says just happened, and what actually happened.
Recently finished the series and was very underwhelmed and disappointed.
I feel that an episodic emphasis - where different characters move through the world - would have worked better, rather than trying to string out the notion of protagonist - which kind of runs counter to the whole point of the Foundation, which is about psychohistory and the longue durée.
And romance? Silly, trivial stuff.
Lee Pace is awesome as Cleon, though. His effortless majesty is something to behold. If he hadn't been in it, I probably would have dropped it after episode 3.
