Hey everyone :D

I am reading through SK's books chronologically and am only just starting the Talisman, I never watch a TV or Movie adaption of any book until I have read it. So, my question is, has there been any spoilers in the TV series for any of the books that were set in Castle Rock? There are still a few I haven't got to on 'the list' as yet :)

Thanks in advance

....since I haven't seen nearly as many of the adaptation as others-my opinion won't carry as much weight-but from what I have seen, I would say that there wouldn't be a huge impact....
I often don't watch them as I am usually left disappointed. I seem to be hearing lots of good things about the series though :)

I don't think so -- there are brief mentions of incidents from the past, but I wouldn't say they were spoilers. You know Cujo had rabies, right?

That's good to hear :) Have you enjoyed it so far? I don't mind some nice Easter Eggs as long as there are no full on spoilers haha :)

I agree with Bev - go ahead and watch it if you can - seems I have a bit of catching up to do!

Don't do it! Read the books first otherwise you may miss some of the Easter eggs. I heard and read the series is above par and cannot wait to see it once it trickles down to my socioeconomic level. :D
Me too. Sometimes these things turn up in Ireland, sometimes they turn up on DVD. We can only hope.
