Episode 10 “The 10th Meal”

Plus: Our “Top 5 Favorite Casts of a Stephen King Movie”

 

We have FINALLY arrived to the season finale 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 give their final thoughts on the TV production plus, they choose their own “Top 5 Favorite Casts of a Stephen King Movie”

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

Everything is at the mall and this is what happened:

  • Adrian (Russell Posner) tells Alex (Gus Birney) and Eve (Alyssa Sutherland)  that Jay  (Luke Cosgrove) raped her and he saw the proof at the hospital. All lies we know but he is now a full-on evil monster. He beats Jay with a paint can.
  • Everyone at the Mall is close to starving. Gus (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) the mall manager likes to hang out in his office and eat his secret stash of treats. He discusses the new mall ethos to Connor the cop (Darren Pettie) and wants to throw people out of the mall.
  • Kevin (Morgan Spector) makes it to the mall. Has a quick “hi & bye” with Mia and goes off to look for Alex and Eve.
  • Bryan/Jonah (Ozekie Morro) orders Wes (Greg Hovanssian) to let him out of his restraints and Wes does just that.
  • Gus wants to send Eve & Alex out to the mist and Jay is rescued.
  • Jay catches up with his father and Nathalie (Frances Conroy) she acts super weird and is clearly losing it. Dad wants to take him away and leave Alex & Eve behind.
  • Connor send his son into the Black Spring (The Mist) because he is either off and on a garbage person or a weak idiot.
  • The mall is very Lord of the Flies with guns and security guards run amok.
  • Kevin shows up in time to beat the crap out of Adrian in the hardware store.
  • JONAH (as he self-identifies now) wants to leave with Wes to find out what is going on at Arrowhead leaving Mia behind.
  • Back at the center of the mall Eve confesses in front of EVERYONE that Connor is really the father of Alex. (We both saw that a mile away. So why have them making out for all of these episodes?)
  • The group brings up Mrs Carmody and calls Eve a liar, a whore and a freak.
  • Kevin goes all agro and sets the store on fire.
  • Kevin joins Eve and Alex as they are being kicked out of the mall. He goes nuts and fights break out everywhere.
  • Gus aims a gun at them and sends the whole group away including Mia at this point.
  • They run through the parking lot and The Mist grabs Alex. Jay rescues her and then gets sucked in himself.
  • Vic (Erik Knudsen) has the car.
  • Kevin decides to back up said car into the mall front doors allowing The Mist to take over the mall. Connor leaves with them.
  • Nathalie reunites with her dead husband and a ghost baby nurses on her teet which eventually kills Nathalie.
  • Kevin’s crew comes upon a train. The army is throwing people out of it into The Mist!! They are feeding The Mist with people!
  • Final question from me–they had enough money to purchase the rights to Lou Reed’s Perfect Day but did not invest in better writing or story structure?

And that is it for episode 10–the season finale!

The Mist Recap Ep. 5 Plus, “Top 5 Scariest Stephen King Stories” 0

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!”

“The Mist” Recap: Ep 3 “Show and Tell” PLUS Top 5 Stephen King Villains 0

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

Stephen King Bonus Ep:”The Mist” Recap

Episode 3 “Show and Tell”

It’s episode three  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 do their weekly recap of the Spike TV production. Is the show getting better each episode?

To be honest, we have been struggling to really enjoy this series. As two die-hard King fans we have been a little disappointed in this particular effort (feeling shades of Under the Dome versus the strange awesomeness of 1991’s Golden Years miniseries.) Is it the writing? Direction? Special effects?

In this podcast we talk about what happened in the “Show and Tell” episode and offer our thoughts.

Plus, Margo D. and Deana pick their “Top 5 Stephen King Villains!”

Major points discussed here:

  • Gus attempting to maintain order not carry out a “Hurricane Katrina situation”
  • What to do with the bodies of the dead soldiers who killed themselves in the previous episode?  
  • The legend of “The Black Spring” of 1860
  • Mia having withdrawals in the basement of the church
  • The continuing ickiness  of Connor the Cop
  • The moth tattoo!
  • Natalie seeing “god”
  • Was Eve some type of warrior before?
  • The slickness of Adrian.
