A few weeks ago, I asked my followers on social media to cast their votes for an upcoming episode of the show. Their choices where the post apocalypse or the many streaming adaptations of Stephen King. Now, in the spirit of full disclosure, I was hoping for the Post Apocalypse. However, the people have cast their votes and this episode will be diving into the one and only Mr Stephen King. I'd like to preface this episode by saying I have not read a single book by Stephen King, nor have I seen any one of his movies or other adaptations of his work. So this episode is going to be focusing mainly on the CBS all access original series the stand, which premiered in December of two thousand and twenty. So with that, let's jump in to podflicks and chill. What's going on, guys? Welcome back to podflicks and chill. As always, I am your host, Andrew. As a reminder, podflicks and chill is now a part of the pod fix network. It's an artist owned group of podcasts covering everything from comedy to science and, of course, videos dreaming. If you enjoy podcast head on over to pod fix Networkcom or visit them on twitter at pod fix and check them out. Now, as I said in the Intro of this episode, we're going to be talking about the stand by Stephen King. The novel was originally published in Nineteen Seventy eight and the first adaptation for TV happened in nineteen ninety four and that starred Garysonese and Molly Ringwald. This current version is on CBS all access. It's a nine episode limited series and it's got some pretty big names in it. We saw Whoopi Goldberg, James Marsden, Alexander Stars, guard and Greg Kenneer all take pretty prominent roles in the show. Now, for those of you asking what is CBS all access, it's a streaming service owned by Viacom, CBS, obviously, and under that umbrella they have CBS, they have CBS sports, they have Nickelodeon, MTV and I think entertainment tonight is sort of looped in there. So on March fourth CBS all access is going to be turning into paramount plus, which I know a lot of people saw advertised during the Super Bowl and we're confused as to why the hell paramount was making a streaming service. Well, they're not. It's already a thing. They're just once again coming under that umbrella to have all their sort of properties in one place, and from this we're going to see, most likely, and influx of more titles, more movies, more shows and a ton more exclusive original series and movies to the platform. So it's already in existence. If you want to check it out, I think it's like seven bucks and ten months maybe for the no ads or ad free. So give it a try. It probably has some sort of free trial on there. But paramount plus turning into, I'm sorry, CBS all access turning into paramount plus on March fourth. There you go with that. But this stand by Stephen King. So when I first saw this show advertised, I didn't know that it was a Stephen King work. As I said before, I've never seen a Stephen King movie, which I know if my uncle's listening to this episode, he's probably going to be pretty disappointed in me. I've never seen it. I've never seen the shining, I've never seen Dr Sleep, you know, and anything you can think of and you throw a title at me. Stephen King Wise, I've never seen it, and it's not because I'm not a fan of Stephen King. I mean I don't know that I'm not a fan, I just never intentionally went out of my way to see anything by him. Now I understand the pop culture references of the clown in the sewer and the red balloon and you know, the twins at the end of the hallway...

...and here's Johnny. I understand all of those references. I just personally haven't sat down to watch or read anything with Stephen King's name attached. Now you can change my mind if you want. I'm sure if you're listening to this and you're offended by it, send me a DM on social media at Pod flickes and chill. Let me know you're offended and tell me what I should watch or read. I'm not against it, but I've just never actually gone out of my way to do it. So anyway, as I mentioned with the stand I didn't know it was a Stephen King work going into it. I think at the end of the first episode when they started rolling the credits, it was like based on the work by Stephen King and I'm like, oh, that's interesting. But what really drew me in to the first episode was the fact that it was centered around this super flu virus that wipes out basically ninety nine percent of the Earth's population. It's it's a virus called captain trips and you'll learn a little bit more about it over the course of the first two or three episodes but it doesn't become the main focus of the show. The focus of the show, and I'm assuming the novel, quickly shifts to you know, human nature, good versus evil, and the standard sort of tropes of TV, film and books. But what I did find interesting was the fact that it is a show that sort of gets set up through a pandemic and it's being released in the middle of a pandemic, you know. So I did do a little research into that and they had originally started filming the series in two thousand and nineteen before covid was a huge thing, and then I guess production might have gotten halted as we sort of went into a global lockdown and I don't know, I found it interesting that they chose to release it during a global pandemic. I think. I think it got a lot of people thinking and a lot of people curious. I even saw some articles that said that, you know, Stephen King predicted that we were going to have a worldwide pandemic like this, but I don't think that's the case. But I did see the parallels. As the show shifts, you know, ninety nine percent of the population gets wiped out and the survivors have to now rebuild society and we get a glimpse into human nature and how we actually are as people versus how we perceive ourselves, and it was a really interesting parallel to the current pandemic that we're facing because obviously we see a lot of people on both sides, and I'm not I'm not going to get into the politics of the virus because it's not a political thing, but you see how people start to act and and what they're true beliefs are, and it was again a very interesting parallel. And I don't know it was dark. It was. It was very dark. I mean it's a Stephen King work, so you expect it to be dark. But yeah, it was a great show. I really enjoyed it, but every episode at the end just left me feeling contemplative, a little depressed, kind of sad, you know, and I had to like counteract that with some comedies and other streaming things...

...just to take my mind off of the depression of what it must be like to be one of the few people that survives a global crisis like that. So, as I said, the story quickly shifts away from the pandemic itself and really focuses on human nature as we, as the survivors, are setting out to rebuild society. The first episode focuses on these two characters of Harold and Franny, who, Frannie used to be Harold's babysitter growing up. Harold is this very odd kid who gets bullied and picked on and he kind of the world, it feels like to him, is out to get him. So he's very upset that, he's very troubled and he probably thinks of himself as a good person that the world has just sort of kicked and beaten down. So you start to see this shift throughout the series of him turning more towards this evil, dark side, you know, and we're going to talk about that in a little bit, because another main theme, as I mentioned, is this whole good versus evil dichotomy, and there's a lot of religious undertone throughout this good versus evil which, you know, is a common theme in most good versus evil stories. I'd imagine. But anyway, so Frannie and Harold, they grow up in a gun quit Maine, because it again, is not a Stephen King work unless they're from Maine. And we see how the virus starts to ravage their town and then learn that it's a global events and everyone is wiped out and they decide, I should say Harold decides, that it's going to be for the best for them to head to the CDC headquarters in Atlanta and he wants Frannie to come along because he has an unrequited crush on her, and so she agrees and they start making their way to Atlanta. Now, along the way they meet another character named Ste Redman, played by James Marsden, and stew is one of the first people exposed to captain trips and he gets quarantined in Texas as they rapidly try to, you know, find out why he is immune, but everybody at this center that he's quarantine at starts dying and, you know, he escapes from there and he meets Frannie and Harold along the way and tells them not to go to Atlanta because he had learned that Atlanta is pretty much a ghost town. So what we learn with stew and with Frannie and Harold is that characters, the survivors of this virus, are starting to be met in their dreams by one of two people, and that's either mother Abigail, played by Whoopi Goldberg, or the dark man who we whose name we later learn is Randall flag and he's portrayed by Alexander Scars Guard, and they both represent good and evil throughout the show. So we have the mother Abigail character, is telling the survivors to come to boulder, Colorado and help me rebuild society, and then you have the dark man character, who's telling the survivors to come to Las Vegas, you know, and obviously that's a metaphor, because Las Vegas is the city of Sin, right, and he's saying give in to Your Basil Instincts, your lust, your gluttony, your greed. You know, we're not held down by society's standards anymore. So come party on right, an...

...eternal party. He even has a hotel called hotel inferno right, where they all hang out, they all drink, they all have sex, they all, you know, fight and it's a pretty ridiculous set up. And then you have the quaints little quiet town of Boulder Colorado, where everybody's nice and, you know, rebuilding and wanting to work together and strive together. And so we start to see this throughout that the characters are basically given a choice. They're either met by mother Abigail and they choose to go to boulder or they're met by the dark man and they choose to go to Las Vegas. Now What's interesting is that we see both Frannie and stew met by Mother Abigail and this is sort of them being told that they're they're good people and most of the characters throughout this series sort of fall into one of the two character categories. We got good and we got evil, but what we have also is characters that kind of tow the line. You know, one of the one of the characters Glenn, who's portrayed by Greg Kinneer. He has a line him that I assume is in the book because I think it's a really prominent underlying message of the show. Glen has a line at one point when stew meets him along the road and they're trying to go to Boulder Colorado, but Glenn just wants to stay put. He wants to stay in as isolated cabin in the woods. He doesn't care about rebuilding society and he's content and still says, well, why? Why don't you want to come rebuild and get the world back up on its feet? You know, we're the only ones left. Shouldn't it fall to us? And Glenn says, show me a man or a woman alone and I'll show you a saint. Give me two and they'll fall in love. Give me three and they'll invent the charming thing we call society. Now, is it kind of syndical? Yes, he's basically saying that. You know, society is full of greed and corruption, competition, crime, scandal, a lot of negative things. Right. So he's saying, Hey, I'm perfectly fine being alone. I'm not going to there's nobody around, so I can't do anything, I can't kill anybody, I can't hurt anybody, I'm just me and my thoughts. So He's saying that as individuals, we are all programmed to do no evil, but the minute we get into a crowd and we're surrounded by others, temptations start to fall into place and start to influence our actions. And again it's a cynical viewpoint, but there's merit to it and to stews point when he sort of argues Glenn Very you know, amicably, they don't get into a screaming match or anything, but still sort of argues that a lot of good has come out of society as well technology, love, relationships. You know, we've advanced past our caveman days and we've advanced to certain points and he thinks that that's worth fighting for and worth rebuilding. So he eventually recruits Glen to come to boulder. Called the called the so he eventually recruits Glen to come to boulder with him and along the way they also recruit Frannie and Harold. Now Harold, I mentioned, has sort of been kicked and beaten down by society and he thinks that everybody's out to get him. So he although he...

...thinks he's good. I truly believe that in some capacity he thinks he's good and he thinks he's doing the right thing. But he's never met, we never see a scene where he's met by mother Abigail. He's met by the dark man in his dreams and we don't see how that plays out. But as the show starts to play out, we realize that Harold is actually evil. You know, he intends to kill stew because do and Frannie Fall in love. And I don't mind spoiling this for any of you because if you're listening to this, you're either a Stephen can't king fan and have read the book or seen, you know, the previous adaptation, or you're, you know, your CBS access all access subscriber and you've watched or you just don't care and you're listening to the show because it's intriguing and you know you're not going to get CBS all access. So I have no problem spoiling any of this for you guys. But yeah, so, so Frannie and Stew they fall in love and Harold thinks that Stu Stole Frannie from him, even though Frannie's got no romantic attachment to Harold, and he plans to kill stew and then he meets another character, Nadine. Now they deed's interesting because she was, I guess, possessed by the dark man, by Randall flag, long time ago, like when she was a kid, and she is supposed to be his queen and she's supposed to bear him a son. Honestly, it felt very games of game of thrones. He with the whole you know, shadow lady, where she birthed stannuses, I don't know demon thing that winds up killing Frindley in the tent again. If you haven't seen game of thrones yet, you either don't care about it or you just live under a rock. But Anyway, Nadine. Nadine is supposed to be the the dark man's queen. She's supposed to bear him a child and she meets along the way Larry. and Larry has been met in his dreams by mother Abigail and is on his way to Boulder Colorado, and he and Nadine go there together. Now, Larry's got a very interesting backstory. He was probably one of my favorite characters, even though his ending wasn't as fleshed out as I had hoped, but I digress. He's got a very great backstory. He was a New York musician that was into drugs and alcohol and all this other stuff, and he was still met by mother Abigail because he's intrinsically a good person. He even gives harold a proper, quote unquote burial because, spoiler alert, Harold dies by the end of the series and he gets eaten alive by like vultures and and Larry doesn't want to just leave them uncovered for bird food, so he covers him up in the middle of the desert. But anyway, so Larry and they deine. They are on their way to Boulder, Colorado, and we never see Nadine's dream, but we know that she's been met by the dark man a long, long time ago and people keep asking her if she had had a dream and met mother Abigail and she says yes, just because she wants to stay there with them. But even mother abigails like, HMM, like I don't know who you are, type of thing.

But Nadine is ultimately going to have to kill the leaders of this boulder collective we're going to call it, and the the leaders of the collective, we learn once they get there, are stew Frannie, Glenn, Larry and another character named Nick who throughout the series is deaf, he's got one eye is messed up, he's wearing an eyepatch. Those are the five leaders of their new societ sxiety. Just to help get them back on their feet, Nadine has been tasked by the dark man to kill them and she enlist the help of Harold. They plant a bomb and the bomb kills a lot of people and then they run and escape from boulder and there they go on their way to New Vegas. But Nadine Tricks Harold and sends him hurtling over the side of a cliff and he gets him paled by a tree and he winds him dying. But Nadine, she's she's bad but she wants to be good. She's bad but she wants to be good. At the end she winds up sacrificing herself so that evil doesn't perpetuate and, you know, run rampant throughout the new world that they've created. So yeah, each character is either intrinsically good, intrinsically bad or some sort of blend of the in between. It's it's a very interesting concept. I like the show a lot. As I said, there's a lot of religious undertone to it. You know, the characters of good. They're there on this path because they believe that mother Abigail has a direct line to God, almost and she's been set on this course by God to hell help rebuild. And then the dark man Randall flag, if he's not the devil himself, he's pretty damn close right. But we see that he feeds on people's fear and there and their basal instincts. So as there, you know, rage and all their you know, the seven deadly sins, as they start to feed more into that stuff, he gets powers of flight. Guy Can fly afloat and he eats people alive and all this, all this crazy stuff. And once people start to doubt his power and start to believe in good, we see that his powers falter. You know, he can't float or anything like that. So overall I enjoyed the show. As I mentioned, it quickly turns from the pandemic and focuses on the other themes throughout. There's a couple of graphic scenes of how the flu affects people. They swell up, they get full of mucus, they're really like snot and gross and all that. All the stuff running rampant there. There's not a lot of Gore in the first couple of episodes, but it starts ramping up. So we start to see people, you know, getting their heads blown off. We start to see people getting like zapped by lightning. We see a lot of a lot of gruesome stuff and it's Stephen King. It's all. It's a horror film, you know I mean, or a horror flick, I should say her series, not flick, not film. God, Andrew, come on, clearly I haven't had enough coffee at the time of recording this. But yeah, it's I if Gore and blood and all that stuff isn't your thing, you're not going to like the show.

But I liked it. I didn't mind. It was it was entertaining overall. Now, I thought the character that I haven't brought him up yet, but the character of Lloyd was extremely interesting to me. I don't know if you've read the book or seen other adaptations of this. You have to let me know what he's like in the book. But the character of Lloyd, he's this. We're first introduced to him he's robbing a convenience store with, you know, another guy, and they're they're holding up the lady at the counter and the guy at the the register. Now the the woman who's a customer. She's like, Oh my God, please, please, don't you know. And Lloyd's partner, I forget his name, sneezes. I think he's infected with captain tripps. He Sneezes and accidentally pulls the trigger of his shotgun and blows this lady's head off and and Lloyd's like, Oh my God, you shot her. What are you going to I can't believe this, and his partner saying, well, we can't have any witnesses, so you got to kill the guy, the the worker, and Lloyd doesn't want to do it, but the cops have somehow already been called and they start blasting bullets through the window, killing Lloyd's partner. Lloyd goes to the ground. He's alive and he's like, you know, don't shoot, Blah Blah, innocent, all this other stuff, but they arrest him for being a cop killer and he just kind of soaks up this nope, notoriety, like yeah, I did it, what's up? So as he's being escorted off to prison, which again first thing I thought of was the walking dead. You know, we're in this big ASS prison, everybody in it winds up dying. I think Lloyd's the only one left who survives, and he's actually physically met by Randall flag who, you know, promises Lloyd Food and Water and, you know, a new life above everyone else who's tried to push him down and suppress him throughout his life. and Lloyd's like yes, like I'll come with you, please help me. and Randall flag says, I will, but you have to promise to never question me, to serve me faithfully, to be my right hand man. Lloyd says yes, of course I will. So he he busts him out of prison and Lloyd comes with him to Vegas and we see this transformation of him sort of again, soaking in this notoriety, this limelight, this like hey, what's up on the right hand man? He's got like fancy suits, he's got the gun, he's got the cigarettes, he's got the hot girlfriends, all of this stuff. And as the show progresses, he starts to question that stuff because, remember, he's never killed anybody. He's never killed anybody, but he acts tough like he has and he's put into a position where he's forced to enact evil against these people and he starts to question himself as and whether or not he should, whether or not he has it in them, and at one point he does. He Kills Glen's character. Against Spoilers, he kills Glen's character and like mutilates some. He shoots him once in the shoulder and then like five or six more times while he's on the ground, and I think that's where he starts to see that he he regrets his actions. So he ultimately winds up turning, becoming good, I guess, but it's not enough for salvation. He ultimately winds up getting his head knocked clean off of his body and dying pretty tru tragically hum but he was an interesting character. It's...

...it's you know, I'd like to read the book only to see if they dive a little bit more into his death, because the way he dies and the way the show, the show's penaltimate episode, occurs is that you have Larry, Glenn a few other characters making their way to Vegas to sort of infiltrate and stop the dark man and stop his dark forces, while the dark man wants to basically drop a nuclear bomb on Colorado right and they get captured. That's how Glenn Dies and Larry and the other woman, whose name I can't remember for right now. She they both get chained to the bottom of a pool that is going to then get filled up with water. They're going to be drowned to death and Lloyd wants to save them, but he ultimately doesn't. So while this is happening, I don't know if it's judgment or what, but we see these dark clouds rolling in and through the dark clouds comes all this lightning and then we just see an orb drop down into the hotel and it starts shooting lightning literally everywhere, everywhere, and I don't know if it's God, I don't know if it's mother Abigail who had recently passed away, I don't know, but it starts striking all the bad and evil people. Right. So we see like Lloyd's girlfriend Julie, just gets destroyed, sintegrated. We see a bunch of other people get disintegrated. Lloyd almost makes it out. One of the statues gets struck by lightning and starts swinging like a pendulum and he ducks it the first time and as he stands up, it comes back and knocks his head clean off and it it. And that makes me wonder, like he made a change. So was it too was it too little, too late, or just had all or was he actually evil and that was his judgment and I don't know. Like I said, I'd be interested to read the book to see if it dives a little bit deeper into it. And then we see this lightning or like strike randall flag like over and over and over and over again, until he eventually like just disintegrates and dies. But we still got Larry in, this other girl, chained to the bottom of a pool that's filling up. Well, then the lightning starts to strike. This the the nuclear reactor that's in the hotel, and it starts charging it up, charging it up, charging it up, and Larry and this other girl, you know, keep repeating I will fear no evil, I will fear no evil. And then the nuclear reactor blows up them and the hotel with it and they meet their demise. So the dark man vanishes and honestly, that it was a very, in my opinion, a very lackluster ending. Right now we see the dark man show up again. He's not dead. He winds up reappearing to Frannie in a dream after she falls down a well and like she's basically gonna die right and he offers her a chance to save her for a kiss and she declines and she runs away and then finds mother Abigail in this dream Cornfield and mother Abigail...

...helps her survive and well, what we don't know is that the dark man's real and he's he's reincarnated and he's he finds this tribe of people that haven't been touched by society or the virus or anything like that, and they he walks upon them and he's like hey, it's me, blah, blah, Blah. You know, can can? You? Guy Has helped me, and they go to shoot him with bone Arrow and he catches the bone Arrow then blows the one dudes head off and starts to be worshiped as evil and that's when he gets his powers back and he floats and he gives the name of Russell Faraday. I think. I'm pretty sure that was the name. Is either that or Richard Freemantle, but another RF name and it felt like an Easter Egg. So I had to look it up and it turns out that Randall flag is a prominent antagonist throughout Stephen King novels, notably the dark tower series, which again haven't seen or read, so hi anyway. So yeah, so he gives the name of Russell Faraday and this character is basically he wants to bring about the end of civilization and he's this immortal person and I liked that component of it because it's sort of sets up a sequel, if you will. Not that this story necessarily lends itself to a sequel, but I would not be surprised if in the future there's another Stephen King adaptation that features Randall flag, that has Alexander Scars Guard playing him, because he did a very great job portraying a creepy Arkman who just wants to watch the world burn and I think that was probably one of the best parts of the series, was his portrayal of this character that I know nothing about. So I wouldn't be surprised if we see like a new version of the dark tower with Alexander Scars Guard portraying him. But outside of that, you know, the show sort of ends optimistically. You know franny. I didn't even mention this at all. Franny. We learn about three episodes in, I think three or four episodes, that she got pregnant right before the end of the world and so she's pregnant throughout the entire series until she finally has her baby and her baby is actually born with captain trips so she thinks that there that the baby's going to die, but miraculously the baby is saved and then she starts to narrate that last episode a lot of other couple start having babies and the world is starting to rebuild and repopulate and she wants to move back to Maine. So it ends on a very hopeful, optimistic note that everything's going to be fine and the world is gonna restructure. And honestly, I think at that point the show kind of felt to me almost like a modern day telling of Noah's flood. Right, we have the great flood that wipes out life and sort of resets everything, and Noah has been tasked with bringing a male and female of each species of animal to help repopulate the earth, and that's sort of what this story kind of feels like. It's not necessarily like hey, everything's going to get wiped out and things are going to be utopic and everything's going to be great after this. It's hey, even in cataclysmic events, you know, we still see human nature run its course, we...

...still see good versus evil, and those elements are always going to be there and be at play. We can always strive to be better, but there's always going to be elements that are, you know, pushing us towards the dark and everything's just cyclical series of events that just plays out over and over and over again. And Yeah, that might be a little bit dark, but it was definitely interesting and intriguing the way that it was brought to the screen. As I said, I enjoyed this series thoroughly. I didn't even know it was a Stephen King adaptation at first, but knowing that, as I watched the rest of it, I could see why the story and those themes sort of make for good TV and make for, you know, a good Stephen King work. In fact, the only other Stephen King adaptation that I have seen up to this point that sort of had like a similar tone to it was twouy, two hundred and sixty three, and that was a Hulu Limited series with James Franco that we're a high school English teacher from. You guessed it. Maine travels back in time to try to stop the assassination of JFK, and, spoilers, he does manage to do that, but when he gets back to the future, everything is really sort of like messed up and a far cry like. He goes back because his friend and mentor thinks that, you know, the world could be so much better if JFK had survived. So he goes back, he stops the assassination, he comes back and the world is so, so much worse and then he has to go back and reset it all and it's a really intriguing piece that has the same sort of human nature questions, the same sort of tone. It's not necessarily like a person that you're you're fighting against in two thousand, two hundred sixty three, you know, an evil person. It's the concept of history and trying to change something that's already happened and that's what you're fighting. You're fighting the past and it's it's an abstract concept, right, but it makes for a really good series. So the stand on CBS all access. If you have CBS all access, definitely check it out. If you're maybe thinking about trying paramount plus, definitely try it out and check out the stand while you're on there, because I'm sure that's not going anywhere. And again, try two two hundred and sixty three on Hulu if you haven't already. I think that one came out in two thousand and sixteen, but it is still up on the platform as a Hulu original, so check it out let me know what you think.
