Re: Fred Pohl's "Gateway" to get a TV show?

Mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, more space-based SF on television would be good. On the other, I've never been a fan of Pohl's writing, and I'm tired of all the dark and gritty shows these days.
Yea, "Dark, Dark" makes me apprehensive. I'm fine with something along the Tone of Space: Above and Beyond or Babylon 5 or DS9 but, I'd like a Space Opera that wasn't as heavy as NuBSG, go dark when appropriate, certainly, but, don't roll around it non-stop, never giving the audience a break from the hopelessness.
