The Andromeda Strain – Crichton Cast 1


Welcome, to The Crichton Cast!

This week, we’re starting from the beginning… well, the beginning of Michael Crichton’s adapted works, anyway, with The Andromeda Strain.

Steve and Eric go in-depth to talk about the 1969 novel, the 1971 film adaptation, and the 2008 Television Mini Series adaptation of Crichton’s first work published under his own name. Listen as we discuss the differences between the formats, and what changes we thought were good… and not so good.

Be warned, we do talk about major plot points from all three formats, so if you haven’t seen, or read the source material, there may be spoilers!

If you are reading this you must be a fan of Michael Crichton just as we are. Whether you love the science in his writing, the adventurous places it takes you or just fell in love with dinosaurs on the big screen we will have something for you.

Every two weeks, in a mini-series format Steve and Eric will discuss a book of Michael Crichton’s which was made into a movie. Compare both mediums, discuss the good and bad, our takes on what worked and interesting facts. Listen in and discuss with us!
