  1. I'm so torn here!!! I love James Marsden and think he's one of the most handsome actors. Lovvveee his smile! But, I'm not sure if watching a show on a apocalyptic show right now is smart.

    1. People seem to love watching exactly that genre right now, I heard Kami's Plague is sold out in all bookstores, for example.

    1. It won't be a movie, but a mini series :) I will probably watch it for Marsden and SkarsMeSomeGard.

  4. I did like the book, but you know how I feel when they put Stephen King's works to the screen. They usually suck. However, this one does have a great cast (minus big mouth Whoopie) so I may actually tune in to this one.
