          i'm not talking about the writing, i'm talking about everything else. Being faithful to the book isn't good enough, an adaptation needs to be well-made & enjoyable to watch too. Which the chinese three-body series definitely isn't. The performances are horrible, it's visually boring as frick, the music is terrible, the subs are translated so badly it can sometimes be difficult to understand what's going on, etc. Just read the book, don't watch the series.

            I agree that the series was bad, but he's comparing it to this netflix slop, which manages to be even worse. The only thing nice I can say about it is that at least it's short.

            why are there so many dumb scenes with extremely dumb dialogue which don't advance the plot in any way? why rush through things then fill the gaps with dogshit?

            Women writers. Those scenes are very important to women.

            Good thing it was, I don't know shit about chink culture but I highly enjoyed it. It was so refreshing watching a show that didn't hold my hand and feel like it was pandering to literal morons. Watching smart characters having smart conversations it felt like I was back in my youth watching the next generation again.

            Like most theory, “three body” is just the simplest form of it. The idea is interactions between everything after three equivalent bodies is completely unpredictable. The mass of their planet is irrelevant to three stars of similar mass.

            Reminder: our solar system has three gas giants. Gas giants are just a step away from stars, all they need is a little more mass and they’ll ignite. Jupiter’s mass is so great the sun wobbles as the center mass of the solar system. If shit aligned right (or wrong) everything in the solar system could shift orbit.

          This is, unfortunately, the current state of all sci-fi in the west today. Women simply can't into sci-fi, and the mandatory inclusion of women in the writer's rooms guarantees that all western sci-fi is literally just drama in a futuristic setting written by and for women.

            Do they not even say anything about the cosmic microwave background? I was really hoping that it was just a cool visual meant to make things easier to understand for the viewer.

    So for anyone who read the books more recently, when was Ye's meeting with Luo Ji? I always thought it was before sophon control, but then it doesn't really make sense why the sophons wanted to kill him.

    In the show it's colossally stupid, everybody openly knows that the nog is at risk because he talked to Ye and she said some cryptic dark forest shit because she was now repentant about her role as a traitorous prostitute.

        Fair enough. I just realised the show is even dumber, because by making Ye cryptic they show the sophons are already aware that hidden meaning might be passed in metaphors, which makes the whole fairy tale shit in the third book completely untenable for the show. But they did have the brain hurtling off into space in the wrong direction, so maybe that whole subplot was just bait for book readers.

          Either some experimental shit was going on in the third one or just horrific translation, but like I got filtered in under 20 pages.

          The main value of the books is the peek into the bug mind and how chinks are so depressed they'd betray the whole world and then kill themselves.

          You didn't miss out on anything. Book 2 is good in places, book 3 is just bad throughout and exists purely as a way for the author to say "I fricking hate women". Which is fine, but I was hoping for a bit more cool sci-fi stuff to go with that hatred.

            That's weird, was he going through a divorce IRL or something?

            Book 1 & 2 has pretty good female characters, they're portrayed as being as capable as men, they have faults and flaws, etc.
            I mean the one guy puts women on such a high pedestal he ends up inventing a waifu but like, he's so flawed and weird the ayys find him inscrutable.
            It's weird that he would then go on and single out women

          I won't be watching S2. Watching nog Luo Ji is the kind of shit I really can't stomach, the first book isn't very good so I don't care that much about potentially ruining my memory of it.

          I will say that they did a decent job of the boat scene, it's cool seeing shit get cut up. It's really fricked in story though, because the nanotech guy is now a weepy woman who cries because they cut up kids, and the jeet boyfriend is now Wade's best buddy along for the ride to help them set up the slicer. Just atrocious on every level.

                Does it tell the complete story like a miniseries or is there going to be S2?

                It ends a chapter or two into the second book as bait to keep morons watching. Why anyone would want to watch an annoying Black person as the hero of the series is beyond me, though.

    there should just be two scientist main charcters, the materials scientist and the physicist who was dating the daughter of Ye Wenjie who killed herself.
    3 if you want to introduce Luo Ji in the first season.
    The only other scientist characters are minor members of the ETO

      Then you've got the mutt chick, who is nanotech guy except without any of the nanotech, detective work, or doing anything but crying, and you've got the nog, who is Luo Ji and also friends with everyone else but not really doing anything.

      >2) we are capable of lying whereas they are not, so even if a faction were to overthrow the Emperor they wouldn't negotiate either

      Not giving away the ending but the entire story is predicated on the false belief that cooperating with outsiders = death.
      In reality, while on an individual basis you might reach out to another civilization and get shrekt, it only takes one such encounter amongst aliens to form a successful pairing and then boom, you've got a super civilization with twice the energy and minds at your disposal, use that to recruit another alien civilization, now you've got a Federation.
      Now you're a Hegemony, you can start converting others to your side or annihilating them if they're too moronic to live (like the Tri-solarians).

      Not that it's the author's fault, because AI didn't exist yet, but you'd send your sophon AI to spy on the planet then act as a perfect mediator between the two of you so that there's no cultural blindspots instead of relying on human agents.

        Unless you have perfect alignment on your ethics and both species share the exact same intelligence levels, that’d never work. There’d always be a species dominating the other and that would lead to resentment - even when we’re the same species, we can’t get past that (e.g. blacks falling behind wealth and opportunity-wise in the US, unless they’re artificially propped up).

        The issues have been thoroughly explored in game theory. There’s prisoner’s dilemma, where trust has a high chance of resulting in extreme punishment, which is just half of the concept. The other part is public goods game. You’re talking about the perfect version of public goods game, where all involved are always fully investing in the pot to double their return. The problem is public goods game collapses once one participant either doesn’t invest or invests an unequal amount for greater return than the others.

        Three body problem goes the route that omnipotence is possible via scientific advancement. The first aliens are a billion year old civilization, who’s development was made extremely difficult due to their butthole solar system. They fear us because we had achieved the equivalent of hundreds of millions of years of their civilization in hundreds, due to the fact we don’t have to deal with regular/random armageddons. They also aren’t broadcasting, looking for other life, just listening, because they know not all life in the universe had to endure as much bullshit as they did, therefore they know there’s shit out there that will squash them, earth, etc

              I agree with what you're saying, and to add to that their society had a couple of more centuries of development compared to earth's 60s one. But I still think that there is room for the parallel of 'Earth's sceintist blasting their location to space because of idealistic naivete making them believe that if there is life it would be similarly naive' and at the same time Trisolarans keeping quiet and listening for any possible civilizations to conquer. The default starting position for trisolaran thinking would be that aliens could also be hostile, even without them being more mature to simply figure it out with reasoning.

          For the plot. Yes, it makes absolutely no sense given any member of their species capable of lying would massively outcompete the rest. But it's the only way they'd even answer the signal in the first place, instead of considering it bait and just blasting a rock at us at .10C.

          They "can't" lie because their society is a brutal one where everythign is focused on survival. But clearly they are aware of the concept deception, considering they send sophons to "deceit" test results. It's just that in a society where everything is focused on survival of the species, there is no real reason to lie. Why do humans lie? To better themselves or get out of tricky situations, that doesn't happen with trisolaris because nobody is trying to better themselves, they are only focused on their species survival. Why di you fricking morons keep criticizing something you don't even understand... I get that it's Cinemaphile, but at least read a wiki page or something...

                All “magic” will have objective information to it, regardless of understandability, you realize. Magic can’t even exist in fiction from a sufficiently modern-scientific perspective. Modern humans are garbage creatures who take everything for granted.

                Even the elves in Tolkien’s middle-earth don’t believe in (elven) magic, which always pisses elf-lovers off when I tell them. It’s only magic to men and Hobbits.

                Tolkien understood Clarkean logic. It’s why the black machines of Mordor are associated with sorcery and black magic.

                Magic’s just an angle. What is magic to one is not going to be magic to another.

                It's jsut stupid to criticize a plot point, then when i try to use logic dispute it you come back with "they just can you know because they are so advanced that they can do magic". In the book they already went over what you are criticizing and they make an allegory of having a desert filled with sand grains and those are universes with planets possibly containing life, so it's moronic to check each individual sand grain if it contains life but if you get proof that there is life you can locate that particular sand grain.

                But let's stick with your genius explanation that they are so advanced that they can do things that are basically magic, good argument.

      If a species is capable of interstellar travel, (even via generational or sleeper ships) they have access to literally bazillions of habitable (but uninhabited) planets and so wouldn't need to invade an already inhabited planet, wasting all kinda resources fighting over already depleted resources.

Those hovering ships are literally collecting water from Earth, which is outright moronic, as these aliens would have the tech to simply capture a moon-sized ice asteroid and have all the water they'd ever need, without the hassle of invading Earth and conquering humans.

I find most alien invasion stories have aliens that seem to put humanity on a similar level to themselves but why would they. They are to us as we are to ants.

    Bros you think SpaceX is going to successfully colonize Mars, or are we not going to see a real space venture in our lifetimes?

      The Powers That Be seem to be focused on the Moon for its resources (i.e. profits) but it's a dead end for humanity, Mars is the only viable real estate other then Earth.

      I highly recommend reading Kim Stanly Robinson's "Mars" trilogy if you're looking for near future hard sci-fi that's actually possible (that is, no light sabers, aliens and such). Fantastic novels that would make for a great (CGI based) tv series but no doubt Hollywood would frick it up.

    >Although the physical appearance of the Trisolarans and what they actually look like is left mostly to the imagination in the original trilogy, in the semi-canon spin-off novel, The Redemption of Time, they are described as small, insectoid creatures no larger than an ant or a grain of rice.

    The book hasn't aged well with time. Due to global warming the aliens wouldn't want this hellhole as it won't do good longterm

      So true. Who would want a gross planet with poor biodiversity? Better to just chill out on trisolaris until it crashes into a sun.

        yep, from the pov of an invader it's much better to face a leader who doesn't care about the obvious consequences of nations having no borders

    Bros is it true that we're alone in the universe and that we just developed under extremely rare circumstances that have never been reproduced elsewhere, and that's why we haven't encountered alyyums?

      There are billions of other alien species out there but all of them are confined to live (and eventually die) on their own planets because travel between solar systems will never be feasible, and is becoming less and less feasible as the universe expands.

        What about colony ships designed to last a thousand years?

          What about them? Why do that when a million things can go wrong and there is no logical reason to do it other than to do it "because we can". It's also highly unethical, basically condemning thousands of your species to live and die on a spaceship.

        The way UFOs are thought to commonly function involves a sort of artificial localized general relatively effect.

        The actual crazy truth of the matter is probably this: Space travel and Time travel go hand-in-hand, being spacetime.

        Aliens aren’t aliens, they’re more so alternate Earthians.

      Mathematically incorrect, i think it's simply impossible to ever reach FTL travel and therefor it's always impossible/illogical to travel to other galaxies.

      I love how 'natural' that scene was. Also how it was entirely made up with two characters that were genderbent for this specific purpose to give this genuine very important book theme ... or maybe to characterise them as insufferable c**ts. Either works

    I tolerate quite a lot, but seriously, what is the reasoning behind subdividing the (male) protagonist into two women? it adds nothing.

      It subverts your expectations for a good story and faith in the west. You'll own nothing and you will be happy.
