The Colour of Magic

As I've mentioned repeatedly, I'm a big Terry Pratchett fan. So I was pretty excited to see this made-for-TV adaptation of the first Discworld book, The Colour of Magic. Now, admittedly, the book is a mess, an episodic parody of a variety of fantasy genres. But this movie is even more of a mess. It's… boring. I think it really highlights that Pratchett is a very literary writer. I mean, he's got wonderful footnotes and those just don't translate to the screen very well.
