    I started watching a show on Netflix called "Haven," recently. As I'm watching the first few episodes I keep thinking that the show is very Stephen King-ish. After about four episodes I notice the screen telling me it's based on a Stephen King book called Who Killed the Colorado Kid?

    So yeah, I had a little laugh about it and am now enjoying the show even more because it's based on the word of the original Wordslinger!

    But yeah, thought you might enjoy my cluelessness!

    Guess I'm going to have to read the book, aren't I? ;)

    The book is great. It's a page turner from the get go. It'll leave you with a lot of questions, but it's a great read.

    Do read the book. It is a quick read and will keep you guessing to the end and beyond.

    The book is good. You'll like it. Also, Joyland is the second book from this publishing line. All the best, mal.

    The series was good for a little while - I liked the character named Duke (Eric Balfour)

    Guess I will have to get my hands on a copy of "The Colorado Kid" :nerd:

    I liked the series. It was based on The Colorado Kid but it was its own thing at the same time. It didn't drag for too long and I think it was able to close all doors before the ending without leaving any big plotholes or loose ends. Loved to hunt all the Stephen King easter eggs during the episodes.

    I loved that show. I got my wife hooked in during season 2 and we never missed an episode. Excellent fun!
