The original film, based on the Michael Crichton concept, was excellent. It avoided pretentious, arty farty, faux profundity and concentrated on just telling a very good and disturbing story.
You gotta expect more depth and complexity form a TV serie that's gonna have douzens of episodes. I think that the movie already has that experience, why not explore the profundity the story is able to have in this new project? Is better than just a remake imo.
