    Like IT, the Stand novel is one of my favorites and I liked the original TV miniseries and hope for the best for this new adaption. All the cool kids seem to be turning Stephen King's novels into films or shows these days.

    I think a TV miniseries is the best way to go, even if that means a lower budget and not having the epic scope that only movies can bring.

    The first miniseries of The Stand had a great cast (except for Molly), so the new miniseries is going to have a lot to live up to. The music and songs in the original were wonderful too.

    I would like to see a multiple season series--even if we know the ending. This novel was all about the journey. I have always thought that King wrote the novel thinking, "How can I write a really really long story with a literal Deus Ex Machina climax and still have people love it?"

    As for MM as Flag, wouldn't it be cool to have him play all the versions of Flag throughout King's novels. It could be a really cool series of films...although, I would prefer HBO to do a real version of The Dark Tower series with McConaughey and Elba as they were cast well.

    As time goes on my resistance to getting all access weakens. When it was just discovery of was one thing. But with that and twilight zone and the other trek series and now this, I may cave

    Is that version streaming for free legally anywhere? I watched part of it when someone was showing it on TV a few years ago, but I don't think I saw the whole thing.
