Just wanted to remind fans that the series premieres tonight on CBS at 10 PM EDT. The previews look good.

I'm looking forward to it!

It does look good, I'll be watching!

I still haven't been able to make it through the book! I hope the TV show is better.

I haven't been able to find out if it's a one season series, or if they want to try to extend it. Extending it would be a mistake. I had trouble getting through the middle third of the book myself, but I can't wait to see stuff go splat! (except the birds. );

Haven't seen Jeff Fahey in a while. He's aged well. He looks just like Sam and Alcide on True Blood.

I just heard that it's going to be 13 episodes.

Hopefully, the extra 40,000 characters King added to his book won't be included! (/exaggeration off)

Thanks. That's good to know. I'm already looking up characters to remember who they were. Love, love, love the search function on ebooks.

Reading the book.. TV show is a lot different, don't think I'm going to watch it. May just wait for the DVD set.

Turned out better than I thought it would be. They never do Stephens books right. Only complaint is the number of commercials. Have to pay the bills. lol

Read the book first is always my rule. The TV show will be on Amazon Prime in a year or two.

It was pretty good. I DVR'd it for a less distracted perusal without commercials. These days though, the frequency and length of commercial breaks is making it a pain to zoom through them.

But they're great for checking up on posts. :)

It was way off the mark on so many things. I just can't watch it anymore. I waited very excitedly for a long time for this show but realized in the first 20 seconds it was going to be disappointing. Barbie did not bury a body and he did not have a car. He was walking out of town!

"The TV show will be on Amazon Prime in a year or two."

It's a little quicker than that. The description reads "Premiering on Prime Instant Video on June 28th."

Fantastic. Thanks for posting that!

RIGHT!!! So many things made me mad right away. My boyfriend - not a reader- thought it was awesome while I sat there fuming the whole time.

Interesting contrast between someone who has read it and someone who hasn't.

Personally, I never thought the book was all that great. Not like King's earlier works - "The Shining," "The Stand." When I read this book, I was wishing for a video version of it because the possible visual consequences were better than the human stories.

I agree in most cases, although I liked the movie version of "The Shining" much better than the book.

No, no. Where were the hedge animals? That one line in the book - No, baby, no, as the hedge animals crept up inexorably, and always when he wan't looking. That's real fear. And the noise of the metal shower curtain rings? We never saw what was behind that curtain, and it was so much scarier than the movie.

I am looking forward to seeing Undler the Dome but I am not going to hold my breath that it is a great movie. I waited for what seemed like ever for Bag of Bones and it was a total flop.

I do not have cable so I will have to wait for it to come to either Netflix or Amazon. But it is true that Stephen King's novels do not translate well on to the screen. The best I have seen is The Stand. His short stories make better movies by far.

Teh remake of The Shining was the best. The one with Steven Weber. I like that one better than the one with Jack Nicholson.

Dorsie says:
The Stand was, IMHO, the best adaptation of his work.

It speaks well of an author when notable directors can't envision what he meant, or even often what he wrote.

On the other hand, Mr. King has been a party to some of those screen failures. If he and Steven Spielberg together can't pull this off, who can?

I liked that adaptation better too, except the little boy just was not right for the role.
