    I watch it every Saturday nite. I love it. I also love the new show Monk, it is so funny! But Dead Zone is my favorite. It was a little weird tonite, but I always make sure I'm in the house by 9 so I don't miss it. And to think little Anthony Hall was the geek in 16 candles!!!!!

    I love it!!!!I never thought I'd like something they based on Stephen King's work (not because I don't like him, but because they usually slaughter his stuff on film) Although I liked the original movie too. It's a cool concept.
    I haven't really watched it a whole lot. I loved the book, thought the movie was OK. Sometimes I just kinda like to keep it the way I picture it in my head, ya know?

    I agree nurseratchett that his stuff usually doesn't cross over well to film, but I think it has to do with him. I think Shawshank and Stand By Me were done excellently, but I think it's because he had nothing to do with it. He writes great books, but he should leave it at that. Whenever he's involved with one of his own screenplays, it's usually a disaster.

    The Green Mile was done very well. I was surprised how well that crossed over to film.
    I like just reading the books, mostly.
    Naughty me. I did forget The Green Mile! Done very well indeed!

    OH DARN, always meant to watch that show. Don't want to get into it now. Hate to come in at middle of series. Experience teaches that the Sci Fi channel will run consecutive shows on one day so people can catch up.

    I've only seen bits of episodes...haven't really gotten in to it yet...but Debralynn I also like Monk, it's kind of reminicent of "The Commish" where the detective is a real person not Joe Cool

    I don't a lot of sci fi that comes on ...but I think I'm going to like this series..especailly since I like the star actor, and his costars. I agree about sci fi showing the beginning of the show in the future. But I don't think much has transpired for you not to be able to get into now. It hasn't really got meaty yet...but it does show promise!
    I just wonder how long they can drag out this series. There was a reason the book had to end, ya know?
