What do you think? Have you read King’s book? Do you plan to check out 11.22.63 on Hulu?
Give a week after airing, it’ll be on the web somewhere.
I read the book and it was a page turner, when he found the portal and went back to the 60’s. It has all the ingredients for a good series…
Sounds great! Too bad it’s on Hulu. Commercials will ruin it and I refuse to pay ransom for the small amount of original programming available there. It’s not like there is a lack of good entertainment out there.
Do you think it will ever come to Netflix??
Anything is possible but I doubt it. If Hulu puts it on DVD, I guess Netflix might carry it.
