This Is Rad!

This week Kyle is riding solo in the host seat. Luckily he is joined by the always wonderful Emily Walsh as they have a postmortem for the new CBS All Access version of Stephen Kings epic novel. They compare and contrast the original book, the 90's mini series, and this new series. They explore variations in adaptations and the challenges of taking such a massive story and turning it into a mini series. They also explore the larger swatch of recent Stephen King adaptations and explore what seems to work and what doesn't when it comes to bringing his books into another medium. If you love Stephen King or getting I not the nitty gritty of writing, filmmaking, and adaptation, then strap in cause you are in for a ride. Tweet at us and let us know what you thought of the CBS series!
