If the drows as villains may be politically incorrect then they are replaced with the cyberpapacy from TORG, or the Castillan inquisitors from 7th Sea.
* The are some comments about the first episodes of the Witcher and they say it is nice. I guess this may be good for D&D as an indirect advertising.
* Maybe you can't remember it because you are younger than me, but after the first Star Wars movie there were for the 80's some serie B space-opera movies, very bad, what tried to test fortune in the genre. Not only Galactica Battlestar, but others. I guess after Game of Thrones others want to try in the genre.
If I say Xena you will remember that serie with Lucy Lawless as main character, and 20 years after XFs help to produce fantasy titles, but to get a true smashing-hit you have to make a good work, and not only fantasy, but also with other genres as romance, comedy or drama. Fantasy productions can't be only FXs, in the same way cinema studios tried to produce their own cartoon movies, but they weren't so successful as Disney's ones.
Let's use as example Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles. The first movie was a blockbuster, but the second with the same director and formula wasn't so good. Where was the error?
* Publishing novels are cheaper and fast than producing movies or teleserie. I am afraid I am lost because I don't remember new novels published after the sundering event.
