All but one of the dvd releases contain a shorter version of the series and a different ending than was originally shown apparently.

Quote:
◦R0 Holland- Video Film Express - No cuts - full-length television version, with original ending (360:26 PAL).
◦R1 America- Artisan - No cuts as such - abbreviated version, with new ending not written by Stephen King (235:51 NTSC).
◦R1 America- Paramount - No cuts as such - abbreviated version, with new ending not written by Stephen King (235:55 NTSC).
◦R2 France- Paramount - No cuts as such - abbreviated version, featuring an alternate ending not written by Stephen King (~236min PAL).
◦R2 Holland- Paramount - No cuts as such - abbreviated version, featuring an alternate ending not written by Stephen King (236:09 PAL)
I think the R2 Paramount dvds must be NTSC-PAL transfers.

Golden Years was great, its a shame it was never allowed to fully develope into the full series that was originally hoped for.

well, i saw the word adaptations and thought fair enough as youll never get the elephantine detail cushioning the ****INGHELLITSA...insert creepy mcguffin here bits...
i loved the story The Mist but thomas jane no thanks, hes the new chuck norris ie has 1 expression.

Carrie...still the greatest teen angst film ever, with Fun and maybe Gummo close seconds...

The Shining...yes we can argue the merits but an axe IS scarier than a croquet mallet, pity about the maze not coming alive though that would have been nice...

why do people salivate like dogs at The Shitshank Redemption btw??? ive seen better prison films by far and it wasnt even the best story in that collection...go figure.

oh, and i love cat's eye.

Just off the top of my head , i tend to think that there aren't many decent King adaptations.

Looking at the list that certainly is not the case.

I tend to think of the bum numbing 3 hour tv marathons and shudder without even contemplating the Mist, Shawshank, Hearts in Atlantis etc, quality films all.
