Quotes

John Rainbird: [sitting on street bench] More than I, if truth were told, / Have stood and sweated hot and cold, / And through their reins in ice and fire / Fear contended with desire. Agued once like me were they / I like them shall win my way / Lastly to the bed of mould / Where there's neither heat nor cold. But from my grave across my brow / Plays no wind of healing now, / And fire and ice within me fight / Beneath the suffocating night.

Watch the first half, avoid the second
11 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

How can a mini-series be so good for the first half and be so awful for the second? The first two hours pick up where the Stephen King novel and associated movie leave off, only ten years later. Character development is generally good, and Marguerite Moreau is both easy on the eyes and the ears.

But-- the second half of the show is terrible. Pointless dialog, nonsensical action and plot holes you can drive a truck through. Don't even bother with part 2, just watch the first part and learn to live with the cliffhanger ending.
