The new miniseries sports a fresh 73% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Sounds good to me!

Showrunner Benjamin Cavell says the reboot is based on the extended version of the book. He says: “King read every draft and signed off on every draft. To have him vetting every script by reading it and he had an open line of communication with Owen and me…vetting all the changes we made to characters in real-time.”

The Stand is an apocalyptic vision of the struggle between good and evil of a world decimated by plague. The fate of mankind rests on the shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied by a nefarious man with unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg.
