Epic MeFi post about “The Stand” – I read just about every link in the post, and I was inspired to buy the unabridged version for the Kindle. I’m not sure I ever read that version. I’m sad so many people seemed to dislike the miniseries though. Gary Sinise as Stu Redman is still the best casting of any King adaptation, ever (at least until they perfect time travel so Clint Eastwood can play Roland of Gilead).
