Stephen King and TV haven’t always had the best relationship. In fact, the track record of adapting the author’s work to the small screen is, overall, pretty bad. Sure there’s a good miniseries here and there—but for the most part it’s been a dismal line-up. Now a new King story is coming to TV: The Mist.
Last night was the fourth season premiere of HBO’s Project Greenlight—a Matt Damon and Ben Affleck passion project where they give first time filmmakers the chance to make a movie. It also provided a platform for Matt Damon to deliver a masterclass in whitesplaining—a whitesplaining sermon, if you will.
In a previous Mr. Robot recap, I predicted Elliot Alderson will join Don Draper and Walter White as one of the iconic male antiheroes of 21st century TV. After last night’s season one finale, I think Elliot is also on track to becoming the definitive hacker in pop culture history. SPOILERS AHEAD.
