Weren't the Bene Gesserit's plans kind of subverted by the birth of Paul? I mean, they intended for "the future to be female" but the prophesied superbeing ended up being male.

Cool. I'm not sure why they're just doing a Bene Gesserit spinoff show when Dune as a whole would work better as a TV series, but okay.

Yeah, it's very disappointing in that way. I was kind of hoping Dune would follow the model that "The Dark Tower" was going to follow initially (before it changed and failed)... where it would be one movie, then the rest of the books on TV.
