Being made the Evi Genius Apple

If I were creating the world I wouldn't mess about with butterflies and daffodils. I would have started with lasers, 8:00, day one! (http://www.denofgeek.com/uk/tv/59431/terry-gilliam-s-time-bandits-will-be-made-into-a-tv-series)

Oh man this has some potential ... some potential indeed.

History being something that's not what you think is a great idea to explore in a time travel series (featuring 4-foot people working for Creation of course). Time Bandits' condescending Robin Hood is the oppoite of what is expected of the mythical character so playing around with received stereotypes could be fun.

I bought TB only a couple of months ago, one of those rare "I remember this being great, so I'll take a punt on a reduced-price blu-ray" moments, which then spawned the even rarer "Still great!" moment that we all crave in our middle-age.

A TV series could be fantastic. Very exciting.

Just laid my hands on my DVD of the film the other day (with free copy of the map!)

Not sure if it'll work but sounds interesting.
