Trivia

This was the first collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Stephen King, but not the firsts time their paths have crossed. Spielberg was introduced to his first wife, Amy Irving, by Brian De Palma, who directed her in Carrie (1976). Spielberg visited the set of The Shining (1980), used cast member Philip Stone in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), and parodied The Shining in Jurassic Park (1993). Spielberg used to frequently cast Richard Dreyfuss, who later appeared in Stand by Me (1986), which also featured River Phoenix and Bradley Gregg, who appeared in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). Catch Me If You Can (2002) reunited Christopher Walken and Martin Sheen from The Dead Zone (1983), and The Green Mile (1999) reunited Tom Hanks and Barry Pepper from Saving Private Ryan (1998). King was also considered to write some of the scripts for Amazing Stories (1985). See more »

Quotes

James 'Big Jim' Rennie: [Opening Narration, Season 3] Four weeks ago, an invisible dome crashed down on Chester's Mill, cutting us off from the rest of the world. The dome has tested our limits, forcing each of us to confront our own personal demons... rage... grief... fear. Now, in order to survive, we must battle our most dangerous adversary... the enemy within.

How could it be so bad?
17 October 2013 | by Velocity90See all my reviews

It is difficult to understand in this day and age, and given the author of the story and who its the progeny of (amblin and CBS)- that something like this could be ruined to the state of disrepair that the final transmitted version became. The book wasn't one of King's finest, but it was a good enough story, that looks like it was given to group of 6th grade kids as a community project to "improve." If I had seen this first I would never have read the book, so at least I got that right. I watched the series in growing disbelief at the dreadful story lines, the total revision of a decent plot and the turgid and often abysmal acting. Dean Norris isn't going to look back on this as his finest hour. It was like watching a train wreck, and being unable to turn away. Quite why anyone voted more than 3 for it astonishes me, its really, really bad. Please can it before it gets any worse.
