Out with a damp squib
26 July 2010 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

The first episode of the Stand ranks as easily some of the best television ever made in the USA. However, from that early promise, I think the series went downhill, reaching the bottom at some point in the finale.

The reason for this was partly because it gave into various clichés and bad effects. Flagg has all of the menace of a rubber mask in this, and when Mother Abagail drops in at the end, it is like a kind of tacky joke. There are also bizarre and inappropriate cameos from Stephen King himself and John Landis, which detract from the action.

On the plus side, Miguel Ferrer's Lloyd Henreid remains engaging as ever, and Glen Bateman (played by Walston) manages to play a likable character without descending into schmaltz. Trashcan Man, unfortunately, puts in all too brief appearances, particularly as he is pivotal to action in the novel.

I think that the best part for me was the incineration of Las Vegas...
