TV series based on the Stephen King novella The Mist, on which previously successful film was also based. Unfortunately the concept of making the series came to producers when movie The Mist became hit, so they were just trying to make some more money on selling the same story again (not an unusual approach in modern cinema). But the problem was that the movie pretty much covered the whole story and only the clever ending, improvised by the film director, made it memorable. The Mist as TV series was a really, really dumb idea, unless they had a really brilliant idea how to stretch the story into several episodes. In a nutshell - they havenít. The episodes were dragging on and on, the story was getting more and more tedious, while the mist was still the most attractive thing on the screen. To make things worse the creators were planning to do another season after this 10 episode disaster, so they left it on a cliffhanger, but network pulled the plug on whole project after first season. The Mist is one of those shows that should not have been produced - tedious, pointless and would make you scream on your tv set "more mist please, I can still see them"!
