    Nice the series first attempt at a creepy episode and even though I don't scare over things like that I can appreciate the effort. Very morbid story with dark visuals although i'm still not quite sure of the connection between evil spirit and the author. I enjoyed even minute of it and as always King uses authors or maybey himself as the central character. If any of you guys got the connection i'd appreciate you posting it i'm just hoping it was more than picking the "evil" painting but maybey it was made clearer in the book.

    Nope, the cancer thing isn't in the original story at all.

    I don't agree, I didn't think it was that bad. The worst was Crouch End. This one was a little dissapointning, I was expecting both those girls he stopped at to die as well. What was wiht all the dogs barking all the time? Is there some connection?

    Best episode was Crouch End, this was the worst, not sure what show you were watching Pharmacopoeia, Crouch End is classic Stephen King.

    I think this was one of the more interesting episodes, I don't think it was the worse, but I think it'd have been better if it made more sense.. Yes, it's great when there is some mystery, but I really didn't understand what was going on and the ending could have been improved, in my opinion.

    I would have to agree. Loved Crouch End when I first heard the story..but this was an awful presentation of it. Yuck. I'm not gonna lie...so far....my favorite has been Battlefield.

    I was very disapointed with this episode. By far the worst. Crouch End was far superior to this. The only good thing here was Tom Berenger. The man deserves much better roles.

    Well, as long as I know, there's a myth that dogs are able to see spirits. I've always heard those stories and I've seen it in lots of movies too. It's like they have a sixth sense.
    So when your dog is standing still and barking, watch out! LOL

    But seriously... Ppl always relate dogs and ghosts this way.
