If the new movie of Brave New World ever gets off the ground, it probably won't feature Leonard Nimoy in a yellow frock, as the benign leader of the drugs-sex-and-conditioning fake utopia. Too bad.

The 1998 TV movie version of BNW is surprisingly great, with about as much crazy sex as television will allow. And I really like the conditioning sequences and all the debates over how much freedom to allow the "savage" visiting this allegedly perfect society, all of which feels pretty close to the book, based on my decade-old memories of it.
