I loved the novel "The Stand". Really, really loved it. I read it countless times, and waited for the day it would be made into a mini-series - not a movie, because I knew that a mini series would be the only way to possibly do justice to the length of the book and the number of characters. So it finally aired, and I watched it, and I wanted to like it, but, well....
My chief annoyances, in no particular order: Molly Ringwald as Frannie was a poor casting choice, in my opinion. It was like she was there to wear her favorite vintage fashions. I kind of liked the casting of Stu, Tom, Nick and Trashcan Man - and Rob Lowe wasn't half bad. The rest of it, not so much. I was annoyed with the four times they had Ruby Dee claim that they had to make "a STAND". The exterior locations looked cramped and staged. Mostly to me it all FELT cramped and staged. Disappointed.
