I'm looking forward to this on Hulu. I read it the week it came out but haven't had time to reread it. Also, I want a remake of The Tommyknockers for television. AMC or FX would be a nice network. We need an adaptation without excessive silliness, but in moderation. Despite the bizarre and surreal events in the novel it is still scary and shouldn't be all camp. Just throwing that out there. Achtung...what do you think?

Because of the varied content, a mini-series would be best but I am squeamish about it after watching 'Under the Dome' and seeing how bastardized that became. 'It' and 'Desperation' were okay however. I agree about David Lynch directing but I think he is busy on the Twin Peaks reboot right now (which I am very much looking forward to).

I also think the stand was a good adaptation, considering the size and complexity of the novel. I am very much looking forward to Cell, again, i hope its not changed too drastically from the novel.
