    Anyone else thoroughly disappointed in SK's hand in this series?

    I watched the first 4 or so episodes and it was reminiscent of the yellow card man, I felt that I had 2 different realities going on simultaneously in my head and couldn't continue. Especially since I am such a huge fan of the book.

    Knowing that SK was a large part of how this show panned out was disheartening to say the least. I expected better from someone who held Kubrick to such high standards.

    Steve didn't write any of the first season and CBS has had definite ideas on the direction they want the show to go in. He's written the first episode of this season. Being the author of the original work does not guarantee that you will get to see it adapted as you wrote it--even if you're Stephen King.

    Think of it as UTD on another level of The Tower. There are more episodes than these............

    Not disappointed at all. I've been thoroughly entertained by it and will continue to watch this summer. Can't wait for June 30th!

    I very much enjoy your perspective on this, just don't know that I can convince my brain of it :abnormal:

    I sure am disappointed Rosie. How are we supposed to believe the following?

    Julia was shot and she almost died and yet she swam to the middle of the lake to rescue a girl from nowhere.

    The girl from nowhere is friends with an axe murderer at the high school and Angie goes bye bye.

    The mob was in favor of hanging Barbie without a jury or judge and then they suddenly forget all about it like they have ADD.

    Big Jim and Junior are now a wonderful guys.

    Houses can be pulled apart by a magnetic field.

    And one more question.... Did Stephen drink regular coffee or decaf?


    I watched episode 1 of Season 2 because I hoped it would improve.

    No, I'm thoroughly HAPPY with his hand in it. Apparently it's starting to look like I'm the ONLY one.
    I didn't think it was crazy that Julia jumped in to rescue someone because it seemed believable that a person might forget their injury and go with the adrenaline that surges through the body when you see a person drowning and jump in to save them. Without thinking logically and, as a person who does the work on a continual basis, I can guarantee that your first few times of doing Emergency Medical work your tendency to NOT think is so strong it's not even funny. A lay person would find it impossible to override that feeling. We have to be trained in how to respond to emergencies and even then we have to actually do it a few times before it becomes easier to do it.
    The fact that she needed her stitches re-closed seemed believable too. The only unbelievable thing was that a paramedic would know how to do it. I'm a paramedic and have no idea how to re-stitch somebody closed. At least not without creating a pucker scar.

    For that matter, the fact of where she was shot not being a minor incident was never mentioned but I chalked it up to last season's screenwriters not understanding how much bullets ricochet in the body when a person is shot. That started with the writers from last season though, so what can you really do with it?
    Nobody in Hollywood understands how it really is, and apparently they don't believe it's worth spending the money for a real live medical consultant.

    That episode is the best one I've ever seen and, incidentally, it's not obvious that the person is friends with an ax murderer. At least not to me. There are too many possibilities to know that for sure until I get more information about who did it and why.
    I'm reserving judgment on it until further notice.
