New Escapist Video! On Why Faithfulness is Not a Measure of Quality in Adaptation…

We’re thrilled to be launching a fortnightly video companion piece to In the Frame at The Escapist. The video will typically launch every second Monday, and be released on the magazine’s YouTube channel. And the video will typically be separate from the written content. This is kinda cool, because we’re helping relaunch the magazine’s film content – so if you can throw a subscription our way, it would mean a lot.

This week, with ongoing debates about the fidelity of shows like The Rings of Power, The Witcher: Blood Origin and The Last of Us, it seemed like a good opportunity to discuss the art of adaption. In particular, the question of whether faithfulness and quality are in any way related to one another.
