I really love the movie and the short story. What a back story there is to explore, not to mention the horror of what we know is in the mist.
When I heard that a TV show was being made I got excited, they could not go wrong, the work had be done by the movie to set it up to be scary, exciting adventure and I really want to know more about Arrowhead.
What i just watched had absolutely nothing in common with the book or movie, it was a terrible...and I do mean terrible, production with poor acting, poor script, unlovable and uninteresting characters and they spent most of the first episode ticking boxes. Weird, make up wearing teenage boy who is gay / not gay, football jocks, rape, sex education gone wrong, racism etc...
Those things have a place but it's not in a show about monsters in the mist.
I don't know if i can go through another episode, I probably will, it cant be any worse than the pilot.
I am annoyed about this, this failure of a show could prevent anyone else from trying to continue the Mist story in the future.
