I thought it was pretty good. They kept in a lot of the political intrigue and cynical outlook that made the book interesting (for me). I think ultimately how they handle the second half is what might make it or break it for me, though they've done a decent job at staying close to the source material.
What about the part where they kept firing lasers down at shielded ships and people? I felt autistic for being upset with that, but it's a core element of the Dune universe that you don't put those two things together. It seems like a weird thing to complain about too, but they went to great lengths to be accurate about things like ship to ground missiles firing a fast burn to slow down to pass through grounded ship's shields, and projectiles slowing down to kill shielded people, but not that.
I noticed that too. It's a weird thing to miss tbh. Also I could be misremembering but didn't they take advantage of lasguns + shields going nuclear during the Harkonan/Sardaukar attack in the book? Seems like too perfect a set piece to miss.
It was also cool when he embarrassed and then murdered the black guy. This is the kind of diverse casting I can get behind
Honestly the Fremen being niggers kind of makes sense. Generations living on a barren desert would have resulted in darker skin through natural selection.

I honestly can't remember. I know at the very end Paul detonates the Atreides nuclear stockpile to break down the Shield Wall, and is then later blinded by a nuclear device detonated in Arrakeen in an attempt to kill him. but those are the only times I recall nukes being used.

The Fremen are Asiatic-Arabic not black. Their original religion was Zensunnism, a Chinese-Arabic syncretism. Racially they might be more like modern Afghans, who span the Near East and represent an Asiatic culture of Arabic speakers.
