    When to stop watching a mini-series...

    After seeing the first episode of Haven yesterday, I wasn't very impressed. I would have expected more from a Stephen King based show. If the next episode doesn't get any better, I probably won't watch the rest of them.

    I'm honestly always amazed at the thought that Stephen King is some kind of quality guarantee. As a writer, he's so prolific that obviously his books are shallow, boring, repetitive and unimaginative. For years -- for decades in fact -- Stephen King doesn't write a book that isn't a piece of crap. He's the McDonalds of horror fiction and he's a bad writer that sits on the laurels of of passable early work aimed at the masses.

    My opinion? You bet.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Well, the only two horror stories I've actually read are Dean Koontz' Phantom and Stephen King's Gerald's Game. The latter being inappropriate for my age at the time, but I was quite interested in how she would leave. Phantom was a cooler book.
