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!”

Stephen King Bonus Ep:“The Mist” Recap

Episode 4 “Pequod”

Plus. Top 5 "Stephen King Heroes"


Welcome to episode 4 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.

Now we are at episode 4 titled “Pequod” which is the name of the whaling ship in Herman Melville’s  Moby Dick and it was named for the Pequot tribe that was based in New England.

This episode has a bit of everything-- paranoia, mist beasts, foul language, dead kids and a little bit of “end of time/wrath of God”-type stuff. The action takes place in three places: A gas station, the mall and the church and people are at various levels of stressed out and frightened.

In essence for each location the following is happening:

The Gas Station: Kevin (Morgan Spector), Mia (Danica Curcic), Bryan (Ozekie Morro) and Adrian (Russell Posner) can’t seem to get their car moving so they meet up at a gas station. There they find Clay (Teagle F. Bougere) who is armed and knows Kevin because Eve is his son;s teacher. Clay wants to stay and he gives his survivalist care to the gang. (He thinks he will reunite with his son at the station. Poor Clay…)

The Mall:

Eve (Alyssa Sutherland) confesses she is glad Kevin isn’t there because she blames him for Alex’s (Gus Birney) rape. Alex takes a young child to the bookstore to hang out and forget their troubles for a bit. The game show bros think it would be a fine idea to get a harpoon and bring the dead bodies from the parking lot. The mist shows up and causes one death and one bro getting kicked out for good. Also, the mist has no interest in Alex (!)

Church:

Father Romanov (Dan Butler) thinks it is the end of times and wants his new parishioners to join him in fighting the mist with faith and prayer. Natalie (Frances Conroy) thinks a spider she caught in a jar is God. Father Romanov thinks that is bunk and squashes it.

Topics covered :

  • Is the group correct in getting rid of bro Vic(Erik Knudsen)?
  • Why take a little girl and not a teenager?  
  • Is there something wrong with Eve and Kevin’s relationship?
  • Why is Natalie breaking down so fast?
  • Should Clay have joined them in leaving the gas station?

Plus, Margo & Deana pick their top 5 "Stephen King Heroes!"

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 (getting same 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.

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.

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?

  • “Let me see you, Babydoll!”
  • The reliability of Connor the Cop

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!

"Hidden Figures"

 

The Margos finally get another Margot on the show when they discuss the book to movie adaptation of Margot Lee Shetterley's Hidden Figures.  We discuss the differences between the book and the film (which was adapted from the 55-page book proposal and not the final book.) 

We have some rather strong opinions on which we liked better. Here are some highlights from our discussion:

  • The amazing cast including Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae and Taraji P. Henson.
  • The white characters featured in the film that are NOT in the book.
  • Our reactions to the notorious "bathroom scene"
  • Our ideas for a Hidden Figures Hulu series!
  • The outstanding score by Pharrell Williams
  • Margo P.'s and Margo D's new podcast shows coming up soon!
