  • William H. Macy RULES!

    Being a lover of the “noir” genre and a huge fan of William H. Macy and of course Stephen King, I had high hopes for this episode.
    They were met… sort of.
    William H. Macy is superb, both as the detective and the writer. The plot moves along nicely. There’s that “noir” dialogue I love so much, the over the top situations and the beautiful “dames”. Nothing was missing.
    When the writer comes in, things are well explained and his story maintained my interest.
    I liked the premise of the story and the way they developed it.
    The end however, felt a bit rushed. Disappointing. It didn’t deliver. It’s a shame but when the credits rolled, I felt a bit cheated.
    Still a good try at adapting King.
    Oh and Jacqueline McKenzie is absolutely gorgeous here. So pretty! So sexy!
