Stephen King Bonus Ep:”The Mist” Recap

Episode 9 “The Waking Dream”

Plus: Our “Top 5 Most Wanted Stephen King Reboots”

It’s time to recap episode 9 of  Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production plus, they choose their own “Top 5 Most Wanted Stephen King Reboots.”

The podcast clip is at the bottom of this post but here are the basics of this week’s show:

 

The Car:

Bryan/Jonah (Ozekie Morro) Mia (Danica Curcic) and Adrian (Russell Posner) are in the car and Adrian tells the story about how he became a psycho (all kinds of bullies and dad stuff here.)

Running around Brigdon, Maine:

Kevin (Morgan Spector) is not dead and Vic (Erik Knudsen) is redeeming himself by saving him. (I like Vic in this episode!) They decide to go from house to house to gather supplies as they head out to the mall. At one such house they find dead Arrowhead soldiers.

They are chased by a guy with a gun and Vic knocks him out. Well not really, the guy pulls a grenade and blows himself up.  Out of the ashes Kevin is confronted with all kinds of weirdness as The Mist comes into the room. All of the people he has killed are showing up and he is eventually confronted with his own image carrying a bat!

Kevin then kills…Kevin #2.

He and Vic head out in an army vehicle to the mall.

The Mall:

Eve (Alyssa Sutherland) is holding Jay  (Luke Cosgrove) hostage and he asks why bother if  isn’t ultimately going to let him live. They have a back and forth about the rape and she mentions his father being a total creep.

Gus (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) blames Alex (Gus Birney) for killing Shelly knowing full well he is lying. The mall peeps turn into an angry mob and want to head out to find Alex and kill her.–by hanging. Because she is “evil.”  But Gus thinks they should just send her out into The Mist instead (forgetting that she is immune to it.)

The gang from the car are now at the mall with no idea what is happening there. Adrian tells Alex and Eve that Kevin is dead and is putting on a real show about it. Alex really becomes upset about this news and Eve is trying to stay strong. Adrian claims his father killed Kevin.

The mall villagers are taking their tiki torches (so to speak) to look for Alex.  

Eve, Alex, Jay and Adrian get locked up together. Adrian looks mighty pissed at how happy she is to see Jay.

Bryan/Jonah and Mia are staying in the camping store and she gives her back story about her awful boyfriend that she left.  Mia wants to run away with him after the whole Mist thing gets resolved. However, we need to learn his backstory first.

Bryan/Jonah is looking for supplies and someone recognizes him. His name is Wes (Greg Hovanssian) and they get into a skirmish. Wes ties him up and then salutes him so basically Bryan/Jonah is in charge–we are to assume. But who knows?

The Sewer:

Nathalie (Frances Conroy) and Connor the cop (Darren Pettie) are having a fun time heading to the mall whilst underground. There is a couple (Trevor and Ursula) with them and you know they won’t make it. (Easter egg about the rats and Stephen King’s Graveyard Shift short stories.)

Trevor breaks his leg and Nathalie is all “bye Felicia!” and says they need to abandon him. Ursula attempts to save her husband’s life and Connor kills her. Then rats show up and eat the couple.

Nathalie and Connor have a weird Mother Nature moment involving caresses and a rat. They head to the mall.

And that is it for episode 9!

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

Stephen King Bonus Ep:”The Mist” Recap

Episode 5 “The Waiting Room”

Plus: Our “Top 5 Scariest Stephen King Stories”

It’s episode 5 of the Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production.

This episode is titled “The Waiting Room” as we now have a new location–the hospital. (Thankfully they ditch the church and mall in this episode!).

It’s one of the gorier chapters so far and had some genuine scares but unfortunately, they still have some pretty lame dialogue.  

Here are the basics of this episode:

The Hospital: Kevin (Morgan Spector), Mia (Danica Curcic), Bryan (Ozekie Morro) and Adrian (Russell Posner) arrive at the hospital just in time for Bryan to have emergency surgery for his bullet wound. The hospital has only 2-days worth of power and food left and people are becoming panicked.

Kevin sees his creepy brother Mike (Peter Murnik) who was attacked in The Mist and has some metal stuck in his abdomen. The doctors can’t operate on him so Kevin offers to do it even though his brother is being SUCH A TOOL. They have a contentious relationship due to the ever-sexy Eve (Alyssa Sutherland.)  

(More on that later.)

Mia looks for Bryan (who is in room 237) and another gentleman is in his bed. We are reminded that our Bryan has amnesia and assumed who he was based on the ID he had on him. Mia freaks out and leaves the hospital with their truck.

Adrian meets up with the jock from high school who has hassled him in the past and who drops the F word like a maniac. (Not the F bomb which is bleeped throughout the show.) Adrian kisses him, the jock beats the snot out of him and then they make out and have sex. Because, of course.

Mike operates on his brother and The Mist shows up bringing lots of blood and leeches. Kevin reluctantly kills his brother and runs away.

The Past:

Eve and Kevin have a very fraught relationship. When they move into their house he surprises her by setting up Alex’s bedroom as a little girl’s paradise. Eve tells him she has never felt this happy and yet less like herself. (Mixed messages, Eve?)

She has an awkward encounter with his brother Mike (did THEY have sex in the past?) and later has afternoon sex with Kevin which apparently never happens. This is when we learn she had a reputation in high school and Alex is not Kevin’s daughter. (Wut?)

Topics covered :

  • The reveal that Alex (Gus Birney) is NOT Kevin’s daughter!
  • The use of the “F” word both bleeped and not.
  • Mia’s mood swings!
  • What is it with sex and this show?
  • The “Room 237” reference
  • What is the deal with Bryan Hunt?
  • The leeches!!!
  • Is Adrian up to no good?
  • What are the rules of The Mist!

Plus, Margo and Deana each pick their “Top 5 Scariest Stephen King Stories!”

Episode 2 “Withdrawal”

It’s episode two of the Stephen King’s “The Mist” TV series and in this special bonus ep Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast talk about episode two of the Spike TV production. Did they like it better than the less than spectacular pilot?

  • The deal with Mia’s drug problem
  • “Let me see you, Babydoll!”
  • The reliability of Connor the Cop
  • The cool use of drones (nice update to the material)
  • Who is this Clint person and why did his friends hang themselves?
  • Is this show going to disappoint us like “Under the Dome?”

Book Vs. Movie Podcast Bonus ep

“The Mist” TV Series

Ep. 1 “Pilot”

Margo D. is co-hosting this series recap with Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast (Margo P. avoids the scary stuff!) We are excited to talk about Spike TV’s take on the Stephen King novella and really hope it will be cool! (Margo D. is still smarting after the dreadful “Under the Dome” effort.)

In this ep they discuss:

  • The backstory about the original novella and the 2007 movie which are considered classics.
  • How we see the story unfolding so far
  • What we like (and don’t like) about the first episode
  • The main characters and the actors playing them
  • How weirdly dated it feels
  • Hoping it gets better as the series progresses!
