Gallon of Tabasco.
(Game of Thrones)
(thought maybe it was Gin OR Tonic. And that doesn't make sense to me)
I'm holding judgment on the new Barbie until we find out more about the guy that he killed. Maybe the guy had it coming to him.
So far, I like the casting of Big Jim and Junior. Exactly the mental picture I had.
Forgetting about the book for the moment and focusing on just what we saw on TV, I'm not too put off that the residents haven't tried to dig under or climb over or blow up or do any of the numerous things one might expect to the dome. I imagine the first reaction would be to wait and see what the military tried to do on the other side.
Okay, so the show won't be the same as the book.
This means they had better start digging underground by episode 3.
I agree that comparisons to the book should be in their own thread. I am one that hasn't read the book, so watching as it unfolds.
It's a 13-week story arc, so I expect it to be resolved at the end - and AFAIK, it's all been filmed - or at least ordered - so little chance of it not being concluded. That being said, as King has never been good at ending his stories, I expect 12 episodes of beginning and middle and a finale that wraps it all up!
Lots of caricature characters here, so I'm not expecting a lot.
I liked it. I'm generally not a big Stephen King book fan (I've read a few of the shorter ones) but I've liked a few of the movies and mini-series. I liked the premise, it's different than the normal TV fare, so I gave it a shot. Looks like, at least for now, I'm in for the summer.
When are they going to start running out of breathable air?
Do the toilets still work?
Oh yeah, almost forgot...
It's supposed to be set in Maine, right? If so, can anyone explain the Spanish moss hanging from the trees?????
They've probably got enough plants in there to keep the oxygen cycle going. I'm a little concerned about all the emergency generators.
So, did Lawnmower man's pacemaker explode, or was he shot?
Nice catch - I didn't notice. But yes we have a fair amount of Spanish Moss here in Wilmington. I immediately recognized the Carolina pine forest Barbie drove away from after the burial.
I'll take Gin please.
I could tell you which it was in the book, but apparently that's not allowed here.
It was (and currently is) being filmed here in Wilmington, NC.
I think most of the "downtown" scenes are in Burgaw, NC just north of Wilmywood.
The Reno sheriff's office was the only town law enforcement in Reno 911!.
In reality, small (and some large) towns all over the country outsource their police needs to the county sheriff. For example, from Wikipedia regarding the Los Angeles County Sheriff:
Forty-two of the county's 88 municipalities contract with the Sheriffs Department to provide local police protection. These cities, range in population from 800 to 177,000, and in size from 1 to 100 square miles.
The town, or most residents, could rely on well water. No running water necessary.
I know it's filmed in Wilmywood, but I was commenting on the fact that we're supposed to believe it's up North, but the SM belies that fact.
As someone who lives up north, I never even noticed the foliage
Not really a book/show spoiler, but the actor they chose for Big Jim is probably the closest to what I imagined him looking/acting like in the book.
I'm no huge superfan of King - but will read his books when my queue isn't too deep. I have enjoyed many of his books in the past. This is one I did not read.
With that said - I'm in ALL the way because I AM a super fan of Brian K Vaughan. Whatever he is doing, I like it. For those of you into graphic novels - do yourself a favor and check out both Y: The Last Man and Saga. Saga, which is recent and still running, is just amazing.
