And finally, the one I want perhaps most of all: a big budget Netflix series based on the Aubrey-Maturin novels by Patrick O'Brian.

The 2003 Peter Weir movie Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World was a fantastic and faithful adaptation that drew from several of the novels in the 20-book series, but there's so much more that could be done with it!

The novels may be the best historical fiction ever written — I'd argue that they're even among the best fiction ever written — and tell a continuous serial story full of adventure, intrigue, heartbreak, and loss during the Napoleonic era.
