I'm reading the book now, and must admit it seems to move really slow. I'm only 10% in on my Kindle; does it pick up eventually? I'm also having a tough time keeping all the characters straight. I feel like I need a score card!

As far as other Stephen King books that have been made into TV movies, I think they did a great job with The Stand. It was the first time I ever saw Gary Sinise and it remains one of my all time favorite TV movies/mini series.

Same here....I definitely want to finish the book before the mini series comes on and hope that the series will tie up any loose ends for me.

I don't know if I'll watch or not. I liked the book, but didn't love it. The ending I thought was stupid. But King has a tendency to have that problem with his endings. I agree, it was rather slow, but the number of characters was crazy! That's why they give you a list to refer to, LOL, cuz you can't keep up with them!
There is one small sick storyline that is not TV friendly, it will be interesting to see what they do with that.
I will have to check out the casting, I haven't seen any of it yet.
I liked the Stand, I thought they actually did a pretty good job with it.
I liked IT too, until they go the last installment, then it was just junk.

I was extremely excited about this new show until Mike Vogel was cast as the lead male! He can not carry a show, and was one of the big problems with why Pan Am failed.

I have not read the book, but from the reports it made it seem like his character was the lead.
