Yes! I read the book about two years ago & was really interested. I wanted to reread it, but I think we gave it away. DH & I keep talking about how different the series is from the book, but I am having a hard time remembering the details in the book. Is this just supposed to last through the summer & be like 6-8 weeks or so?

I haven't read the book, but watched the first episode last week. It seems pretty good so far, and I'm looking forward to the next one.

Kudos for featuring a mixed-race lesbian couple. Suck it, Ten Thousand Moms! :nenner:

I just started watching it. I really hate the one guy who will always be Frank Lapidus to me had his heart explode on the first episode. I really like him as an actor. I don't really see how this could go on long term. I think it will be better as a mini-series. And it doesn't make sense to me that water could get through and not sound.

I like it so far. I believe Stephen King wrote the screenplay, so that should make it better.

Historically, doing a mini-series from a King book works much better than doing a 2 hour movie. "The Stand" was one of the best mini-series out there.

Kind-of fun to see Hank Schrader breaking bad.

I've been watching this. I haven't read the book, now I desperately want to, but I'm afraid it's going to spoil the show for me. (I can't believe I'm saying this as I'm usually a book purist!)

I don't like how they treat the teens. I don't find the reactions realistic at all. Not all teens are obsessed with texting and having parties, especially around a disaster like this.

I really liked it when it was the Simpsons movie. :shhh:

That's the first thing I thought of too! My kids are big Simpsons fans, and the movie is actually pretty funny. Spider Pig, Spider Pig, does whatever a Spider Pig does . . .

I'm the same way. In fact, this is one of the few cases where I am watching the movie/tv adaptation before reading the book.

I completely agree. That whole scene on the last episode was over-the-top stereotypical ridiculousness.

This town is made up of possibly the stupidest humans ever. I was rather hoping most of them would get killed off with the sudden sickness and the main characters would be faced with having to choose who would live and who would die. They would then have to live with the guilt of having to do that and there would be some depth to this show. But no, they magically had enough medicine for everyone. They should have raided the pharmacy for gloves while they were at it.

The only character I like is Angie who is locked in the dungeon and is probably going to stay there because Big Jim is so not letting her out so she can tell the world that he raised a psycho.

I have been enjoying this show. I watched the first four episodes in a row and liked them. I hope Angela gets out of the fall out shelter because she is a great actress and is like to see her interact with others. Has anyone else wondered why her brother is not worried about her? He hasn't even mentioned her.

He finally asked about her in this last episode, and (of course) Junior said he hadn't seen her.

I stopped watching in the middle of last week's episode. It had such good potential, I just can't bring myself to like any of the characters.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
