I get you, but she's perfect for that part.

Id rather it was Morgan Freeman.

Honestly though, every time I read the book I saw Mother Abigail as much older, frailer, wiser, than Guinan.

It's been 25 years since Star Trek TNG, she's aged a bit. lol

For some reason that trailer just looks meh. I was intrigued by the teaser, but something about the trailer just feels off. I'll still watch though.


EDIT:
Oh, wait. All Access only? Nah, I'll wait until it hits CBS reruns.

Interesting. The Stand is my favorite King book.

I'll watch it at some point.

I've been anxiously awaiting this - since the last 4 part miniseries. It was, at best, all right..

Hoping this rendition will be much better........

The last time I read it was probably late 80's\Early 90's. I remember the TV miniseries...it was OK I guess.

I hate Whoopie Goldberg. Cicily Tyson fits the idea of Mother Abigail better in my mind. Plus I hate Whoopie Goldberg. Though I did enjoy Sister Act...

The long trailer didn't excite me, but it might be worth a watch. Wife won't, she hates Stephen King type stuff, so I'll probably never see it anyway.

I was siting in my office one day and noticed that one of my agents had left a copy of the Stand in the Office. This was either '77 or '78 (been so damned long I don't recall).

Anyway, I happened to pick it up and began doing a quick read of the 1st chapter. For the next 7-8 days I shirked my leadership duties (:-)) and kept my head buried in the damned book. I was hooked - as one might guess from my "Name De Plume" here.... :-)
