like the company who wanted to film, 'Mort,' but leave Death out of it because American Audiences wouldn't be comfortable with the character).

They've done it before. Some US bunch obtained rights to make their own version of 'Fawlty Towers'. After a while they decided one of the characters wasn't working, so they got rid. Which character? Basil Fawlty, of course.

I think mostly books should be books and material specially written for TV and Cinema, unless the book really suits translation to visual medium.
I do agree... which is funny, because for me both Belgariad and Malloreon are written like cartoon =D. So, they actually suit the transposition to visual ;D.

I voted for movie, more specifically a series of movies xDD. But of course, a series would be also very nice (I'd like them to be also in cartoon). And I'd like to be hired as an actor for them ^^.

These days I almost always want the series version for any group of books. The quality of TV (which I use for all series even streaming) has grown so much in the last 20 years. Many are better produced than movies. I'll take the advantage of a TV show being able to breath and grow. To really explore the characters and the world over the SFX advantage that some movies have.

I loved Terminator 2. It was a great Sci-fi film but I'd rather rewatch The Sarah Conner Chronicles.

I have a slight preference for the movies as you can watch them in a few hours, but I will not complain if somebody offers us the series instead.
