Anyone else planning on watching this? I'm not quite halfway through the book but I figure that it's safe to watch the first episode...I imagine it will be awhile before the series catches up with my reading. Checked out the IMDB page and am a little puzzled by the cast list...it looks like the series might be quite a departure from the book. Specifically, two major characters look much, much younger than their book counterparts (Barbie & Julia). Also, a couple of them are apparently longer-lived than their literary selves. Apparently Stephen King is pleased with the results, so fingers crossed. Since it's network TV, I'm expecting a King-lite version of the book anyway.
