      How about next year to do a Nostalgiaween episode on both the original 1970s (1980s?) Salem's Lot Miniseries as well as the remade one (also from TNT like that crappy Shining) starring Rob Lowe. Or Rose Red...my favorite schlock King mini-series....EVER.

      Am I the only one who put this and The Walking Dead Together with the whole "Immunity" thing? In the Stand people are Immune to Capt Tripps, and children born after it will be, and in TWD people are immune to (TS-19/space spore.) and children born after it will be, except they'll be zombies after they die?

    What's strange is, when I first read the book around 1981 (long before this miniseries was a twinkle in anyone's eye), for some reason I pictured Ed Harris as Stu Redman. And, he's actually in this version, but as a different character. Gary Sinise looks nothing like the way I pictured Stu. That didn't bother me much, but leaving the character of Rita Blakemoor out really bugged me. I loved poor, doomed Rita.

    love the fact that Malcom in the middle got mentioned here, love that show speaking of the subject though, i can without a doubt say that special needs in Malcom is kind of accurate, not with how they act but with how they are treated, it's a little scary how similar it was to the time i worked with them, the amount of people (teachers) who treat them like they are stupid is just tragic, i feel like this needs more attention

    Perhaps The Stand was good and I just didn't give it chance. I just remember watching the first 1/2 or 2/3rds of the full show and just got bored with it and had no desire or care to watch it anymore, which was mutual with my friends/family who watched it at the time as well. Maybe I hung around an unusual crew, but I was under the impression that this was the general census. There's been films in the past that I didn't really give a chance or like it until one day I rewatched it in a more focused mindset and enjoyed it... maybe this is one of those things, but this was one of the all time most boring Stephen King films for me... the other two would be Thinner and Tommy Knockers, which blew heinous ass, but it's difficult to compare given that this was a 6 hour series that I was unable to complete.

      BTW I prefer long and I like the TV series formats of modern day, because with only 2 hours to tell a story is very limiting and in order to crame stories into such a short time frame, movies end up following similar styles end echoing cliche's up the ass, which it's bound to happen... there's only so many ways to cram stories into 2 hours.

Derek should know that is how it works. Green arrow knows this . Derek's a idiot in all 10 films and I have seen the 7 Swan princess and it's not terrible but,it's still bad as well as 8 and 9.
