I don't know... OK, I guess.
I watched in around November. It was out in the 90s... I remember catching a couple episodes of the mini-series on network (ABC?) television.
It's strange because Rob Lowe is in it as a mute.
And the guy that played (oddly enough) Dobber-from-Coach is in it.
And that one girl that was the 80s hit-girl was in it... ah, what's her name... Pretty in Pink/Sixteen Candles girl.
The villainous crew is really tame in the mini-series. It's like, damn - can't you be meaner?
My wife had just finished reading The Stand on her Kindle (which she gave a 10/10, 5/5 stars to).
We watched 10minutes together and she said she didn't want to watch it all. But I did.
She said it was one of her favourite stories to read of all-time, I think.
Long story short... 2.5/5 (the mini-series).
Good story, pretty crappy acting... and certainly they left a bunch out due to time restraints.
You know the story with King mini-series on TV... never as good as the book.
