….Viruses Weren't Already on Your Mind

"This holiday season, if you're lucky enough to find yourself celebrating with your family, why not sit back, relax, and watch a story about a deadly virus wiping out humanity? And no, we're not talking about the news.

CBS All Access will debut its highly anticipated adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand on December 17. After that, eight more episodes (nine total) will premiere weekly on Thursdays. Josh Boone (The New Mutants) directed the premiere and finale of the series, which features a new coda written by King. The show stars Alexander Skarsgård as Randall Flagg and Whoopi Goldberg as Mother Abigail, leading a massive ensemble that also includes James Marsden, Odessa Young, Amber Heard, Owen Teague, Henry Zaga, Nat Wolff, Eion Bailey, Jovan Adepo, Heather Graham, Katherine McNamara, Fiona Dourif, Natalie Martinez, Hamish Linklater, Daniel Sunjata, and Greg Kinnear, among others…"

I thought so too.
Apparently King is a cash cow.

BTW, I've never liked him. He has four basic plots that he keeps recycling. The first version is usually pretty good but the repeats, not so much.
Don't tell him I said that. He thinks he's a genius.

Well, he is at least on to something about the culture:

I couldn't make it through this the first time around; I'll just pass on this one. Personally, I just "don't get" The Stand.
