Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Stephen King’s The Stand is a long book and the 90’s mini series is an equally long show, clocking in at over 6 hours. And much like a lot of King’s work it’s not immune to filler, feeling at least an hour too long. That said considering its age and budget, The Stand is still pretty effective even if it has dated poorly at times. The first 2 parts are the strongest and the ending still feels out of place but overall I really enjoyed revisiting The Stand especially considering the world we are now in!
