The Tomorrow series by John Marsden deserves the Netflix treatment

The ABC show is fun, but feels too restrained. My hopes if a Netflix series happen are:

-Go all out on violence, the novels never held back and had it’s gruesome moments

-Focus only on the teenagers, no parents.

-Do not adapt The Ellie Chronicles, end it at Book 7

“I didn’t tell Caitlin Stasey that Homer was gonna grab her here, so what you see when Deniz grabs Caitlin is all very natural. I thought it would be nice to get her reaction on screen. I think it sets up that Homer and Ellie have a platonic relationship, there’s nothing romantic here, which is very important.”

“They were the beats of my heart, the skin of my body, the breath that entered my mouth and nostrils. They were the beautiful friends who had taught me that love was the life-force.”

“‘I could never go back to that life,’ Fi said. ‘I don’t want to keep living like this either, of course. But if the war ended tomorrow, I couldn’t suddenly start wor­rying about flower arrangements for Mum’s dinner parties, and having the right paper for answering invitations. I don’t know what I’d do, but I’d try to find something useful, something that would stop this stuff happening again.’”
