A new adaptation of Stephen King'sThe Stand premieres on CBS All Access tomorrow, prompting the author to look back at his many other small-screen appearances (both adaptations and straight-to-TV series).
(Well, the New York Times also prompted him to do that reflecting.)
Among the TV shows King praises: It (1990), The Stand (1994), and The Shining (1997), which in his opinion is superior to the movie version.
On the other hand, King has harsher words for The Tommyknockers (1993), Rose Red (2002), and Under the Dome (2013).
Read King’s full reviews of these and other TV adaptations in the Times.
