I've been watching that new NBC show, "Revolution" and, is it just me, or has anyone else noticed a lot of Stephen King related comments and situations? For instance, in one scene, the lead character, in response to a request for his name, says "I'm Stu Redman, and this is Frannie." Who are, as we all know, two main characters in "The Stand." In another scene, in a comment regarding prison, he says, "They're gonna Shawshank you!" Again, Stephen Kings creation; Shawshank Prison in Maine, in "The Shawshank Redemption." Not quite as blatant, a woman works on a computer in an attic, when we see only the rundown cowboy boots of a guy walking up to and into her house. She's terrified, and types, "Randall is here!" Need I say more about a guy walking in cowboy boots, named Randall, striking fear in peoples hearts? The final thing that caused me to start this thread was tonights show, where the characters find a group of orphaned kids, and one guy is not comfortable with this group and shares his trepidation to a woman, who says, "they're children!" To which he replies, "Yeah, children of the corn!"
I have not heard of Mr. Kings involvement in this show, and I have looked, but this a little coincidental! Maybe the writers are King fans, I don't know, but has anyone else noticed this, or perhaps knows something about this highly unusual circumstance? Let me know if youu have any info, or if anyone has noticed any other references that I missed. I look forward to other views on this!
