Lost in Adaptation is a show by The Dom where he looks at the pros and cons of a movie adaptation compared to its literary source.

Structure Edit

Most episodes begin with a very brief comedic sketch, followed by an introductory commentary on the quality of both the literary source and the adaptation in their own merits. Then, he divides the analysis itself into three parts:

  • What they didn't change
  • What they changed
  • What they left out altogether

And in the end he has a final segment where he states his final thoughts and elaborates on them.
