When in Francine's safe house (Episode 7) one of the "hippies" introduces another as "Captain Tripps" That's also the name of the flu that wiped out earth in "The Stand", also by Stephen King. See more »
I won't bother to list the cast, as others have done that. I will say that the cast was excellent, and did their jobs admirably.
I have not read "The Book", so I can't compare. The series as it stood, though, was rather good. That is, it had promise. I understand that the original intent was to make a full series but for reasons unknown it was cut short. The ending leaves much to be desired as it causes more questions than it answers. I would very much like to see a continuation of "Golden Years" to see where Mr. King intended to go with the story. I wish the Sci Fi channel would pick this show up and run it again. I have not seen it since the summer the Sci Fi channel premiered and they ran a number of short run shows.
