I guess I should bump the book up my list of things to read. I have it but it's about 5 or 6 down on the list.

Wonder if it is on Hulu free or the pay service only.

So is anything Canadian picking it up? Will be interesting as a big deal was made here with James Franco coming to this area to film it.

Would really suck if it was only on Hulu.

BTW beowulf would really recommend the book. I found it quite enjoyable. Also with most of King's works it was a very quick read too. He put a ton of detail and research into it too to make sure that he made a realistic a 60s environment as possible.

I can't wait. I stopped reading the book because it was really dragged out, but it was pretty great the first half I read.

Great book...second favorite by SK. But what is Hulu? Can this just be on normal TV? My word.

Under the dome was a great book for most of it.
Then it seemed like he realized he needed an ending and put in a bunch of BS.

That describes just about all of his books, from what I hear.

Ugh....it's airing on 'SuperChannel'

http://www.worldscreen.com/articles/display/54222

Looks like the only way I'll be able to get it is a way we can't talk about here.

Some are some aren't. The ending to Misery was pretty good as was Salems Lot.

That would have been absolutely terrible.
I was talking about Under the Dome.

Watched the first episode yesterday. I thought it was excellent. Very intriguing premise with very good execution (so far). Not a huge Franco fan but I thought his "style" worked very well.

Just watched it. It sucked. It's really rare for me to read something before watching it, so maybe that's why.
