The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from and if and when it will go away.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Ok. Huge Stephen King fan, so understandably was getting a bit disheartened by the first season (Julia Shumway was a 'tough old broad' in the book!) Then I read an article in which Stephen King quoted another writer (sorry can't remember now who it was) and he was citing a conversation where said writer was asked if he was disappointed by how much film makers had changed his book to which the writer replied (not a direct quote, but in the ballpark) 'they didn't change my book, its right there on the shelf if you want to read it'. This actually really resonated with me and I decided to persevere and give it a fair shot. Without my SK prejudices I actually really started to enjoy this show, and by S3 am REALLY enjoying it. It has diverged so completely from the book now that it can be viewed as a separate entity entirely. While I wouldn't go so far as to say I am overly excited by it, I do look forward to each episode and would recommend that people at least give it a shot.
