I am also nervous. I was excited about it possibly being a mini series but now that it will be a tv series I am losing hope. Im not impressed with the casting so far and just feel like this will disappoint.
well........the idea that it is a 'series' is kinda baffling: it is only 13 episodes logn...so far...and that means it might just be more of an old-timey miniseries...like 'roots' and 'rich man, poor man', so, on that score...maybe there's hope
the casting itself means doodly squat...but the way they seem to be changing the characters is more than befuddling
still...spielbergs amblin is still involved...and that alone bodes well, to some extent...
but...i ain't holdin' my breath
i know many a jack reacher fan who thought the casting of cruisewa flatout idiotic...but the movie, and cruise, won them over: it may not've been ideal, but it wasn't bad...
i'll give creedence to that little '80's band, Asia and say 'only time'll tell'
I Believe that bringing this into a mini-series was the best choice they could have done. I mean, you can't just fit it into one movie, and if they decided to make a trilogy or something like that, I just don't think it would of had a good flow. The 13 episode series would be great cause it would be like 100 page and episode, which it a hell of a lot better then trying to fit 600 pages into 1 hour and a half or 2 hours.
Quite frankly, I'm pretty stoked for this!
As for the casting, its hard to tell which person would work for who, but since they brought in Dean Norris in for Big Jim, I KNOW it's going to be good!
From the moment I started reading Under The Dome, I knew I wanted to see it get made into something. I visualized SO many cool shots and stuff for it and I'm excited to see what happens!
I've never understood the habit of movies and television wherein they buy the rights to a great book and then proceed to gut it for names and setting while throwing out the story which made it great. I try to remain hopeful that many of these rumors are false, but I'm too jaded now to know better.
