Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles
People who were familiar with the novel were generally disappointed with the movie. People who fell in love with the movie first and read the novel later weren’t as impressed with the book. Then Roughnecks came along and invented a happy medium between the two. Roughnecks had it all — state-of-the-art 3D animation, highly detailed conceptual design, incredible art direction, plus great scripts that not only adapted the novel well but explored the universe Heinlein had created in greater detail. Unfortunately, Roughnecks also had a lousy time slot between five and six in the morning on the BKN Network. The show inspired a small and devoted following online, but simply aired too early in the morning to ever attract a huge ratings audience.
