    Just saw the first episode. I enjoyed it for the most part. The shifting timelines didnít bother me that much; the exception being the ending with Harold which made things a bit rushed in my opinion.

    I had a similar reaction: going in, I thought he seemed off for Nick, but he pulled off a difficult trick for an actor: he made me forget he was Rob Lowe.

    Itís almost like being strong enough to live entirely on her own to an advanced age told us something about the character of Mother Abigail.

    Again...shitty storytelling.

    Can she still make her own biscuit? Will the nursing home let her? Or does she just have to eat pudding fed to her?

    Itís not perfect but I havenít had any major issues like I had with the It movies for example. Itís miles above Under the Dome at least.

    The last episode flowed a bit better as it didn't really have time jumps just location jumps. They are really cheesing up the Flag and Lloyd characters. Actually I hate how they are portraying Lloyd.

    Just finished the 6th episode. I have gone from "poorly put together but generally OK" to "pretty terrible". Totally ruined trashcan man and there is too much cheese. 6 episodes in and they still have failed to provide any connection to any of these characters. Mother Abagail is a non-character in this telling. The good cast is wasted.

    Yes, Trashy is way over the top, but not the worst person for me. That is Frannie. I don't know if it is the actress or the director, but she is so bad. The last episode 9 is King's new one written for her. "Frannie in the well". I hope Lassie has a day off and leaves her down there.

    Finished episode 3 tonight. It is still ok. I am not comparing it the the book so my standard is not unattainable.

    Just finished episode 5... found the line about Flagg being lovers with Konstantin Stanislavski to be interesting. Never occurred to me that Flagg could be bisexual but heís been around for thousands of years and weíve only seen a brief glimpse of his life.

    I am just not sure how they managed to botch this so bad. 6 episodes in on a 10 episode run and I have little to no connection with any character. They killed a main character last week and I don't think anyone felt any impact from it because its hard to care about any of them. I will still watch to the end though. Its certainly making me appreciate the 90s miniseries more.

    Uggggg is right. I am ONLY watching now cause I have not much else on the go. It could not have been done any worse. They could have done something special. WHEN WILL THESE FOOLS in movie and tv realize to try and stick by the book as much as possible? When they do.... with good direction... they end up with amazing productions. Oh well... I knew this was going to happen sadly
