Looks like you can listen via app, web, or Alexa.

Nice price but I don't want another ecosystem/digital content library.

Fingers crossed for some cross platform standard like MoviesAnywhere

I agree. It was kinda slow to start…but I definitely ended up enjoying it by the end. Hope it gets renewed. Wish this book was available in words for those price point.

Neither did I, but after I got The Hobbit (Serkis version) for free, I decided that this was worth a buck too.

The books are very different than the show. Personally I like the books a lot better but both are good in their own way.

Agreed, I wanted the show to be good so badly, but it's sorta lost the actual Foundation plot. The Empire stuff is actually more interesting than the Foundation stuff in the show.

Shouldn't have the Apple TV thumbnail for this. The show is very different from the book.

It's impressive how the show is brigaded down so hard on reviews from die hard fans of the books. I found the show rather enjoyable as well

That's unfortunate. I only enjoyed the scenes with Empire. Everything else was "NO INTELLIGENT PERSON WOULD EVER MAKE THAT DECISION"

Over and over again. Made my head hurt with how stupid the writing was
