Wow!!! Loved this. Chris Cooper is great, I'm not a fan of Franco but he's really good. I read the book when it came out and from this first episode it seems the tv show is going to be just as riveting. I know the book looks like a doorstop but it's a great read, only King could come up with such a fabulous premise for a novel and then have it be turned into a tv show. As he said, a 3-4 hour movie just couldn't have covered everything in the book so a series was the obvious choice (I'm paraphrasing). LOVE seeing the 1950s, well up when I see (an actor) Kennedy giving a speech, it's so authentic. Give it a try... :)
Off to a great "Stephen King" start, to bad it's only going to be a mini series.
