The Mist: "Pilot" Review

It’s pretty tempting to throw snap judgments at each new genre series that hits the small screen. Yet, when it was announced that Spike (soon-to-be known as the Paramount Network) was working on a new adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist, I couldn’t help but perk up and take notice. As the network aims to change its programming slate -- along with that impending name change -- and banks on multiple original series for the coming year, The Mist is their first attempt at testing the proverbial waters. And to fully get myself in the mindset necessary to step back into Stephen King’s supernatural tale, I gave Frank Darabont’s jaw-dropping film a rewatch. Real talk: the new series doesn’t look anything like its 2007 predecessor. READ MORE...

The Mist Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Withdrawal

Things are looking up in the mist. After a somewhat questionable start, The Mist Season 1 Episode 2 pulled back on the unsuccessful attempt to deliver a series' worth of social messaging before we even got to know the characters. It gave them a chance to breathe and stand on their own for good or bad.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/06/the-mist-season-1-episode-2-review-withdrawal/

The Mist Season 1 Episode 1 Review: It's Coming For You!

Alright kiddos, The Mist Season 1 Episode 1 wasted precious time. I would have expanded on that comment, but I'm not quite sure how to do it. Time was wasted. We met some people, many of them without names. The good news? Most of the nameless died off quickly. Except Cowgirl. She's still nameless and in action. The mist rolled in before we got to know much about anyone, most certainly before any of them became in the least bit interesting. Eve Copeland is the closest thing we have to a hero, and she's the most despised person in town.  ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/06/the-mist-season-1-episode-1-review-its-coming-for-you/

The Mist Review: Spikes Stephen King Adaptation Lost In A Fog

It is hard to see clearly what is going on with The Mist , which premieres on Spike on June 22. Based on a beloved novella by Stephen King from the early 1980s, this latest adaptation initially plays on the horror of the cloud that envelops a Maine community adroitly, but also quickly becomes bogged down in small-town stereotypes. Unlike the 2007 big-screen version from now ex- The Walking Dead showrunner Frank Darabont, this updated to 2017 Christian Torpe-created   ...Read More... //deadline.com/2017/06/the-mist-review-stephen-king-adaptation-spike-video-1202117493/

‘The Mist’ Review: Spike’s Timely, Complex Stephen King Adaptation Is a Must-Watch

When it comes to The Mist, let’s get one thing straight: This is not the second coming of Under the Dome. Yes, it may be an adaptation of a Stephen King work, and yes, it may center on the population of a small town trapped by some otherworldly obstacle, but that’s about as far as the comparisons go. The series premiere of The Mist treats its characters as fully fleshed-out yet flawed human beings who make perfectly rational decisions, even if those decisions end up working out rather poorly in the end. This grounded and realistic introduction to a relatable cast of characters goes a long way toward getting audiences invested in them, all the better to respond to the horror that’s about to come.
