The Stand was published forty years ago, in 1978. It took fifteen years, ’til 1993, to see a filmed version of king post-apocalyptic battle between Good and Evil, Tech and Magic, Reason and … Not-Reason? The three-part TV mini-series starred Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe, Ray Walston, and oh so many others, and it’s amazing that the only (to date) adaptation of this highly memorable book is so entirely forgettable. But the lackluster performance, indifferent direction and truly terrible special effects make it .. um … uh … what were we talking about? I’m sorry, what? Wow, really? Tune in as Cat and Brad say a whole lot of interesting things about a wildly uninteresting mini-series. How is that possible? It’s the end of the damn world!
