1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    I was watching Storm of The Century 2 days before a big storm hit us in the UK, but that's just coincidence, right?...

    I wonder if Sai King would ever develop some kind of sequel to this?

    Probably not as he's pretty happy with how it all turned out. But, never say never, right?

    That's probably my favorite of all King movies--definitely my favorite TV movie! I think it ended well (not happily, but well). Part of being a good writer is knowing when the story is over :)

    I didn't like it when it first aired- I noticed that they used one of the storm scene's twice and thought it was going to be a cheap TV movie, but after watching it a second time (without commercials) I realized it was a great story!

    Tim Daly made that show. His earnestness was quintessential King--the good man.

    It took me a couple times to really get into the movie.

    One of my alltime favorites! 30 days of night really reminded me of this, even though they were two completely opposite stories. I wish King would, or would have done something exactly like 30 days of night. OR even had been the man behind that awesome story, movie. Anyway, nice adaptation & that entire opening to it always creeped me out!

    I loved it and found it very creepy. The very first thing I did after it was over was look up the movie credits to see who played Andre Linoge because he was awesome. Also I always like Tim Daly and Casey Seizmasko (spelling?) was in one of my favorite teenage movies....3 O Clock High anyone?

    The guy who played Andre Linoge is a wonderful character actor - he has a lot of class, actually. He was also very good in Bon Cop, Bad Cop

    Colm Fiore nailed it as Linoge. This is also my favorite of the miniseries, I feel it works perfect from beginning to end.

    I just read the screenplay, I can't wait to watch the mini series.
