I like films, I like Star Trek more than Star Wars, and I used to read a lot of comics.

There are rumors that there is gong to be a movie (or movies) based off Stephen King's novel It. So with that in mind, I thought it was a good time to re-watch the TV mini-series It. I think it holds up.

The mini-series starts in a small town with a mysterious child murder. Mike (Tim Reid) calls some old friends and says it is happening again. Flashbacks reveal that these friends fought a monster in their teen years but all of them but Mike left town after high school. Now they're coming back to town to fight the monster again.

I have never read the book the mini-series is based on, so I cannot judge how well it adapted the book. I like the mini-series but mostly I liked it because of the cast (it is a good cast with Tim Reid, Annette O'Toole, John Ritter, Harry Dean Anderson, and Richard Thomas). I thought the flashbacks were well blended into the main story and I thought the young actors were good. I liked Tim Curry as Pennywise the evil clown.

I liked the mini-series, and I might watch it again next year, I am interested in the movie or movies.
