    On episode 5. So far I've given it four 3/5s and one 2/5. It's not bad, but I feel like everyone is a background character except for Harold and slivers of Larry and Stu and Nadine.

    Watching it by myself, marking down scenes to fast forward for Rose when she and Amber watch it.

    So far I have:

    e01: 9:51-9:56 (jerking off)
    e02: 32:41-33:43 (sex scene)
    e04: 23:30-25:20 (almost rape scene and repeated head bashing scene)
    e05: 7:12-7:30 (Vegas orgy), 12:28-18:30 (almost threesome and more Vegas orgy), and 24:09-24:27 (unzipping pants, moaning)

    Even though it wasn't the best, I was still able to enjoy it. I'd watch it again on bluray, they better put it on bluray.

    I sure hope so. Streaming is nice but Blu-Ray is rock solid, and the sound isn't compressed.

    I think they will, they’ve been giving Blu-ray releases to the other CBS Access shows.

    Finished episode 4 tonight. I find it enjoyable and like the change ups from the book. Keeps me more interested since I know the book story so well. I will be getting the blue ray for sure.

    Did a free month of Paramount + so that I could watch this. Overall I was just kinda blah about it. I think the biggest miss was that I had zero connection to any of the characters. I feel like they flash forwarded thru the whole first half of the book and just jumped to Boulder and Vegas. But that long journey is where we form an emotional attachment to the characters and see who they are. It's a shame because for the most part I enjoyed the casting and the production was good, but the link connecting it all together and to the viewers just wasn't there.

    The zero connection describes it best for me also. I rewatched the miniseries a few days ago and it doesn't hold up well these days either. The acting is subpar but it is a more faithful adaption IMO. I guess the lightening in the bottle that was Shawshank and The Green Mile will never be captured again.

    I'll watch if they release it on Blu-Ray or DVD, but I'm not jumping-up-and-down excited about it.

    4K sound is superior to standard Blu-ray in both DTS & Atmos.. So it's 4K or UHD for me.

    4K is the film's resolution and has nothing to do with sound, other that the fact that 4k films typically have Dolby Atmos/DTS, whereas many BluRays do not have the latest and greatest sound technology.
    Either way, Bluray, or 4k Bluray have superior picture and uncompressed sound as compared to streaming.

    See.. I knew I was wrong.
    One thing is sure, I'm always wrong on the DT.org thread.

    I finished the novel earlier this year but I decided not to check out the CBS Adaptation. Would've been a lil more interested if HBO had behind it.

    I'm waiting for the fan edit that will
    Edit the entire thing in chronological.
    I gave up after 1 episode. The time jump
    Had so many spoilers, it
    Just ruined the whole thing for me.

    Trying to compress a 1300 page story into a 10 hour series seemed to be a messy task from the jump. The Stand deserves to be adapted into a series with 3 seasons in order to tell the story in it's entirety. I'm not shocked by the mixed reviews

    10 hours would still be preferable to the 6 the original miniseries gave it (that miniseries takes lots of grief, but its main problems were special effects (which must be forgiven in a network TV miniseries) and short running time).

    I'd like to see a 20-hour proper (meaning not shuffled as CBS just did) adaptation.

    There's an interesting series on youtube that breaks down the The Stand movies that were never made. Part 1 is about Romero's, part 2 Ben Affleck's and part 3 Josh Boone's. The Ben Affleck version sounds like it would've been especially wild and crazy.
