I mean the whole entire purpose of the book wasn't the horror, it wasn't the action, wasn't even really the characters themselves...those are all incidental. The purpose was, if the world became like this and all of the tools were just left around waiting to be picked up and used again...would we rebuild the world the same way? At least that's what I gathered from it.


A new miniseries would be an unnecessary retread. The '94 series was pretty damn good in adapting the material in the novel, I don't see any point in doing it over.
