Dune (2000) and Children of Dune (2003) are 2 of the greatest TV sci-fi mini series that have ever been on TV. Brian Herbert was part of the production of both series. The music by Graeme Revell, snd Brian Tyler perfectly matches the theme, the costuming by Jan Pistek, and Theodor Pistek is reminiscent of 1930's Buck Rogers, "Crash" Corrigan, and Flash Gordon serials except on wonderful colors. The Fremen which Frank Herbert modeled after the Touareg nomads of Algeria are spot on. Spacing Guild is believable, The Navigators don’t look like a floating pinched loaf with eyeballs. The Sardaukar looked like evil storm troopers, The 2 series do not strictly follow the books, it would be just about impossible to do, but to a Frank Herbert fan they got it right.
