  • Very disappointing!

    I'm on third episode right now - so far it doesn't even come close to the book. And it's quite boring.
  • Did I watch the same movie as these other reviewers?

    Either James Franco made up 24 iTunes accounts or everyone else on here is drunk. If you've read the book, run away as quickly as you can. Everything that made the book enjoyable has been rewritten, reorganized, renamed, and otherwise redone. I get it, books have to be modified to become movies/mini-series, but this went beyond modified into uncharted territory. Its like someone read the book and a year later tried to reconstruct the details while at a party after having drunk too much. Relationships, chronology, locations, details, attitudes, personalities--all changed for no good reason. What frustrated me the most was how the director changed the "mechanics" of how time is obdurate. Shawshank this aint. If you haven't read the book, this version is still awesful. Franco's acting is terrible, character relationships make no sense (why is Jake mad at Al in the beginning?), and overall, the director failed to capture the essence of 1960 (yeah book lovers, he ends up in 1960). If you are dead set on seeing it, at least get it in SD and save yourself $5. I recommend you pass on it completely. Were you that short on cash Mr. King that you let this be made? For shame.

    The acting isn't great. The dialogue seems unnatural and forced. Not as good as the reviews suggest. Cinematography is great.
  • A opportunity missed. Awful!

    WHY WHY WHY did they not follow the book? They had all the time to do it yet they came up with this hacked up boring treatment. Poor writing, poorer acting. Dismal…. What a waste of opportunity...
  • Amazing show !v

    Masterpiece is the only word that comes to my mind to describe this TV Show. Purchase it, it's definitely worth it.
  • Attention to Those Who Read the Book:

    The show will disappoint you, especially if you listened to the audio book, as I did. That recording was 30 hours long, most of which was invested in developing the main characters. It goes without saying that a 9-10 hour TV series simply cannot develope the characters like the book does. Secondly, the divergencies from the book are several, and some are major. The one that most disturbed me throughout the series was the introduction of "Billy," who in the book, is the older "Bill Turcotte" and a relatively minor character in the Derry, Maine portion of the book. In the TV series, he is elevated to a major character, a partner of Jake throughout the entire plot. I found this character to be a particularly annoying presence. Nonetheless, the casting of Sarah Gadon as Sadie was very satisfying. And, the final scene of the series, just like its counterpart in the book, moved me. Nonetheless, I regrett I invested the time to watch the series, and I found most of the episodes disappointing. I don't know if I would have felt similarly if I hadn't read the book

    This serires knocks it out of the park. The attention to detail is beyond any movie or series I have ever seeen. To make all those actors, cars, buildings, food, music and mood the perfect 50s and 60s look took more work than 1000 of your typical shows on today. It's also a smart movie (except for the inexplicable plot foundation) which addresses the JFK issue again. There are little parts you have to be ready for, like the time Carson mentions "Camelot", which was code for the Utopia America had become. Then there was the phenomenal dance scene where they used a Big Band to play a jazzed up version of Little Brown Jug. The dancers had very cool moves I have never seen before and I probably watched every episode of Happty days. Makes me wish I had a portal like this show has.
  • Great television show

    For all you history nerds like me this show and premise will make your insides tickle. Favorite show in years. Feels like you are in 1960s. Mid century America has all the feels good and bad. Not a waste of money!
