    It seems, at least on my box, it doesn't detect that there are multiple episodes of this miniseries. I had to set both tonight and tomorrow nights episodes separately.

    From what I understand it's a two part miniseries. I recorded the 4 hours one as well.

    What I'd seen was that it was 2 hours tonight, then 2 tomorrow, at 9. Guess we'll find out.

    My Dish DVR had to be forced to schedule Monday as it thought it was a duplicate even though they both clearly said Part 1 and Part 2. So I checked the A&E web site before deciding what to do:

    The tags & info box are identical for both parts. No way for a receiver to know they are different.

    Correct, but they're also showing all 4 hours tomorrow night starting at 11:00EST (right after the second part is shown).

    I believe we had this same problem when the Andromeda Strain aired on A&E... Parts with identical guide info making it difficult to record both parts.

    I haven't dealt with tomorrow yet... Will have to shuffle some other recordings to make it work anyway.

    I have to say I love the novel, one of King's best, but this miniseries just did not capture the atmosphere. Sure there's another two hours tonight, but I dunno. Felt both rushed and too slow at the same time, does that make sense?

    I have not read a King novel since The Stand, only from lack of time and patience to sit and read.
    So now when I see the movies I am not disappointed.
    But back through the history of novel to movie or series, I cannot think of a movie that was better than the book. There is just something in the writing that no one can get exactly right.
    It could be the time issue you suggest. If they could take one novel and stretch it over a 2-4 or even 6 season HBO series, it may lend the director the amount of time to allow for every detail.

    Why can't these mini-sieres be tagged part 1 of 2, part 2 of 2?

    Not to derail the thread too much, but King's latest novel, 11/22/63, is one amazing book. If you haven't read any King novel in a long time, this would be the perfect time to try. It's his best novel in a long while.

    A movie better than the book is rare. I don't know if they are necessarily better, but Stand by Me, Shawshank Redemption and Misery are very close to being equal at least. Maybe The Dead Zone.

    Agreed, his latest one is excellent, I haven't been able to get into his books lately. Next is a new Dark Tower book.

    Either I am really tired every time I start watching this, or this is terribly boring. I wake up the next day after starting to watch episode 1 and it looks like I have not made it past the first 45min.

    I am going to try again tonight

    Yes, the first hour was boring and uninteresting.

    It gets interesting, but lacks that excitement element.

    How about the movie of The Shining?

    Even my brother who doesn't like King's books liked that one.
