The mini series was amazing from beginning to end, and did absolutely everything, from writing to acting to effects, better than the movie.
I think the miniseries has the better script, though that's only because it has more time. Absolutely everything else is better in the Lynch movie though. Direction, cinematography, effects, music, costumes, atmosphere, set design.. all of it.

As for I, Robot I thought about reading it. I looked through it, saw that it doesn't actually follow the story of the movie, and then decided against it.

It looked like a book I'd have to drop after 20 pages from pure boredom.

I'm predisposed against reading "classic" sci fi authors anyway.

I don't like a lot of the style of writing of older sci fi books, or just books in general

Authors like Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, Issac Asimov, etc are all authors I'm sure were good for their time but I wouldn't read anything they did unless I had no choice.
