    Default 11/22/63

    Not sure if anyone has seen this but the first couple of episodes are available in the usual places. It's an adaptation of Stephen Kings book which was really good.

    I watched the first episode last night and thought it was a solid start. Although the premise is fucking ludicrous. If you are able to suspend disbelief, then this might just be for you.

    I'll watch this and probably enjoy it. The book lends itself to a series rather than a film as it is overly long, in my opinion. The end of the book gets a bit ridiculous, no spoilers but there shouldn't have been an explanation about the yellow card man at the end etc. Did think it was a good story though.

    I devoured the book when it came out and after watching the pilot and next episode last night, I am enjoying it.. I am a bit of a King devotee however, having read all of his stuff...

    I liked the first few episodes that much I just read the book - will be interesting to see if they take the ending from the book or totally transform it for TV.

    Started this earlier this evening and watched the first two episodes. Excellent, really impressed. Follows the story from the book fairly closely, they've added about half a dozen scenes in the series to maybe cut down on some longer threads from the book.

    Yep, read the book and loved it and so far the series itself is very good.

    I've only watched the first episode but thought it was awful for 2 main reasons.

    1. The main actorcannot act at all. It's painful.
    2. There is a massive plot hole in that first episode which makes the rest of it meaningless. It's difficult to forget if you notice it.

    However, with so many good comments in here, I'm tempted to watch another one.

    I wouldn't bother, it gets ridiculous after a few episodes.

    Wanted it to work - the premise whilst not exactly unique, had a nice angle with JFK. But sadly it is s l o w as fuck. Lots of filler. I'll probably see it out though.

    Watchable if nothing else is available.
    Shows promise from the start, but the storyline is weak and can't really go anywhere else.

    Hoping this weeks might jazz shit up a bit.
