    "This solution satisfies my needs because it provides me with the name of a TV show based on Stephen King's book. I was looking to watch a TV show based on a Stephen King book but didn't have a title to search by, so this hit perfectly satisfies my needs to find that show. The only thing I didn't like was that the hit took me to HULU, which I don't subscribe to, rather than a review website that might list all the services the show could be viewed on."

    "The Stand is a great adaptation! Stephen King is notoriously hard to adapt - his stories have frustrated some of the best directors in Hollywood. But this one knocks it out of the park - bringing his vivid stories to life in a way that is uniquely designed for the screen!"

    "I think this is a very good response overall. However the full name of the TNT show referred to in the solution is more accurately titled "Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King." The show was definitely based on the works of King, and the analysis makes mention of the "notable" performances by respected actors, which is a compelling argument in favor of the quality of the show."

    "If looking for a Stephen King TV show, the link provided to The Langoliers seems like a good choice. One, I like the fact that it took me to a well known website (Amazon) and there were plenty of reviews. I do remember back in the 90’s there seemed to be quite a few Stephen King mini-series on TV and I would watch some on occasion. My preference would be Stephen King’s It, but if I wanted to see something different, I would consider The Langoliers. "

    "Although I thought that the Shining was a good miniseries, I still think that I may have preferred under the dome better. The actors chosen to play the parts make so much difference in whether it manages to capture a Stephen King world. Too many times an awesome book of his is ruined by a moving with bad acting. "

    "I hit the view solution button and got taken to Netflix - not helpful unless I already have a Netflix subscription. How about a link to the wiki page about Under the Dome or the imdb page so I can look into it without having to have my subscription, since without the subscription to Netlflix I can't even go and peruse the reviews others left about Under The Dome to find out if other people liked it or not before I sit down for the long haul of watching the seasons."

    "Kingdom Hospital is an okay show for Stephen King but it does not have much depth or likable characters. It features creepiness and horror like you would expect but I was disappointed. I prefer the tv show Haven for an adaptation of a Stephen King work."

    "I love King's writing so much, I usually slow down towards the end of the book because I don't want it to end. Wow, There is nothing negative to say about this. It is a great read, and it arrived very quickly, and was priced at an awesome rate. I will buy again from this seller and more Stephen King books... I have a big collection of his books and this one is one I will add for sure. "
