Kinda disappointing. Not for fans of SF, and certainly not for Trufen. Concentrates on a few "prophecies" RAH made in a few of his books, complete with footage from the atrocity that that damned Dutchman made of Starship Troopers, as well as the pretty good adaption of . Made no real effort to refute the accusations of fascism arising from pacifist criticism of ST; just talking about "power suits", even though the execrable movie didn't have them...Yeah, yeah, hippies loved Stranger in a Strange Land...And the "pocket phone" showed up in Space Cadet, not Between Planets--that was a saddle phone...They spend time on The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress, but they mostly talk about Lunar habitats, not the libertarian aspects. *sigh* Mundanes...
"...pretty good adaption of Puppet Masters."Not sure what happened there.
Yeah, I was less than impressed; also, they *totally* muffed the Colorado Springs house he designed. I'm not asking them to CGI it up (the original house is long gone) but they could have at least used a Midcentury Modern one-story home for those shots. ...That house and his later one, Bonny Doon, both look amazingly familiar to any longtime Heinlein reader.
