    Don't feel bad. No one has that channel.
    It's weird though. King is so hot right now. You can't sell a show like that to a bigger network?
    Perhaps adapting King books is hot because there isn't much horror out there to adapt? No fresh faces?
    But yes, it is odd a network I have never heard of is getting a King show. Maybe King knows the owner or owes so-in-so.

    Who knows. I will say I'm very interested to see what Hulu does with Castle Rock.

    Irritating Emmy nominations. Are the shows that are always nominated (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black,) consistently great year after year? And Modern Family is nowhere near as funny as it once was.

    And how the hell did Leslie Jones get a nomination for SNL? Are they just giving them away or what? And Barb from Stranger Things? I guarantee she wouldn't have been nominated if it hadn't been for the fan attention after

    she was killed off. She was barely in it and had zero memorable scenes.

    I don't get it either. Orange is the New Black has completely regressed season after season. Season 5 was.....just bad.

    Started (and finished) GLOW: Season 1 today. Ended up with a solid 3.4 rating (out of 5). Enjoyable throughout, with moments of brilliance.

    And ... (finale spoiler)
    Spoiler:
    The moment Liberty Belle went to the top rope and did her slow motion standup extension, with the music and everything going on ... perfection.

    Finished Hap and Leonard in a day. Very good stuff. It goes from belly laughter to physically uncomfortable all in five minutes. I can't wait for season five. Also, just finished The Twilight Zone season one. There was an episode with a writer's fictional character coming to life. That seems oddly familiar, no?

    I thought I posted this but I must not have hit the post button.

    Anyway, it took a few days for me to look at nominations. I must say that it's a travesty that Carrie Coon didn't get nominated for The Leftovers. Emmy needs to switch things up bad. I've been saying for a few years, but they are going to have to start breaking these categories up. There's just too many good shows out there to lump them all together.

    There should be different categories for Network shows, Cable shows and Streaming shows. It's just not fair to mix them all together.

    I don't watch House of Cards, but a lot of experts were saying it was a down year and didn't deserve to be nominated. I have a few friends who say the same thing. As for Veep, Emmy just loves JLD. I saw the first few episodes and had 1 or 2 light chuckles. I didn't find it funny at all.

    I tried multiple times to watch The Mist. I'm guessing it doesn't get better than the first episode then? That first ep was horrible. Can't even believe they made it. I have the others still collecting on my dvr, but don't know that I'll give it another shot.

    Barb got nominated?!? For what, best supporting actress? I haven't watched the Emmy's in years. You're right, it's just the same shows that get nominated year after year after year. Similar to the Oscars and constantly nominating the same actors regardless of what movie they're in.

    It's awful. I'm an episode behind, but I'm loathing the idea of watching the rest of the series.

    As for the Emmys, they're way worse than the Oscars at this point. The Oscars mixes in different actors way more than the Emmys. I love JLD and Tambor, but nobody else has a shot every year. This seems to happen every so often. Before it was Cranston, whom I love, but it gets old.

    It is not as bad as Under the Dome. I couldn't watch that and I can watch the Mist.
    agree with this. Under the Dome was a dogs breakfast. The Mist at least has some cool horror/sfx sequences.
