Foundation, Raised by Wolves, and Dune


Foundation, Raised by Wolves, and even the new Dune movie which just covers part 1 of the first Dune novel, are all serial.  They all involve war between different factions.  As such, they feel like science-fiction soap operas, although pretty good ones.  Perhaps they were inspired by "Game of Thrones" which was hugely successful as a series.  Raised by Wolves is particularly adept at ending every episode on a cliffhanger, making you want to immediately watch the next episode.  However, Foundation is also good at this.

I get a sense of deja-vu while watching these. They all hit the same notes.  I wonder what is really different between them?  Mostly the character names and the background stories.  Otherwise, it is the same struggle.
