    ugh. Zombies. Never understood this fad. (Did enjoy "Cell")

    Anyways, IMO Mr King wont "end" the show even if he was contractually capable of doing it. What message would that send to people who later might be looking to pay money to adapt his stories? He also is on record saying he is all for people running with his source materials.

    The ratings have been a bit troubling for viewers. The total number is still decent. However the attrition and trending look very rapid. I wouldn't be shocked to see this series not get renewed and kind of hang out there unresolved forever... unless one of the streaming services pick it up.

    danie I am whatever you say I am.

    Also, Mr. King, if you could please wear a red t-shirt today, it would be much appreciated. Plus, part your hair on the right side, please. Thx.

    Welcome Hazendark. You are quite entitled to your opinion. BUT, it's not the book. It was never going to be the book. The book was a real fun ride, but I didn't like the ending. So, I'm hoping the TV series ends differently. If you really don't like it, don't watch it. So, what do you like?

    It simply comes down to that. I watched the first season with an open mind and with my expectations reigned in, but it just wasn't my bag. I'm not a huge TV watcher as it is, and I found that by the end of the season I lost interest. I don't even think I watched the season ender. Nothing to do with the changes from the book to TV series, I just don't have the commitment TV requires these days. I won't slag the series. Much respect. I'm glad folks are enjoying it. Hope it brings happiness to those watching, that's what it's all about. It's just not for me. Cheers!

    The *Thorazine* shuffle is what we psych nurses used to call it. :fried: Many of those psychotropic meds are TOXIC!

    One thing I really hate about television is when they cancel a show before wrapping it up...just leave us hanging. One that comes to mind is HBO's Deadwood (although it has been confirmed that a movie is in the works) and although UTD wasn't Emmy material, I would have preferred some kind of *closure* to the story.
