Best Adaptation of one of your books in a long time. Can't wait for the next showing. Get the Dark Tower as a network series. It could run for 7 or 8 years.
I dream of the Dark Tower as a series. Or a long series of full length movies. I loved Mr. Mercedes--and I'm glad to hear they are doing all the Bill Hodges books as follow-ups. Finders Keepers and End of Watch are both fantastic too.

We got a free Superchannel promo for the next few weeks. I saw Mr. Mercedes in the list and thought I'd check it out. No expectations in mind except for thinking about the Mist TV series (awful IMO). I was instantly hooked! Now I am binge watching it before the promo runs out. Starting episode 8 of the first season tonight. I don't think they could have done any better casting Holly, but everyone is great! There are a few little changes here and there but nothing that takes away from the story. Ooohhh...

It's a humdinger, Season two is fantastic as well.

Aaaahhh!!! I was on season 2 with three episodes left to watch when they removed the Superchannel freebie. I could pay $16.99 to get SC for a month but it goes against my skinflint nature. I checked the library and they only have season 1. I checked Amazon and it is more expensive than the extra month of SC. I need to think about this...

As for season 2 it looks like they went straight to 'End Of Watch' with no 'Finders Keepers' story in between. No biggie...it's still very engaging and entertaining.

I have yet to check the internet streaming availability or the torrent availability. I think I'll follow my usual path and do nothing, as these things eventually find their way to me.
