'The Stand' Finale Review: The Circle Closes

This post contains spoilers for The Stand. Check out our last review here.  The trouble with using a proverbial epilogue as the final episode of your series is that — even with a re-write — it’s still a proverbial epilogue. “The Circle Closes” marks the end of the series, but it comes after the only worthwhile episode in CBS All Access’ entry to the s...

'The Stand' 1.08 Review: The Stand

This post contains spoilers for The Stand. Check out our previous review here.  The Stand hasn’t been the easiest show to keep up with. For a long time—most of the series, really—it’s felt like the showrunners made every possible choice that would make the story they were adapting devoid of any meaning. That’s still true, of course, but I’ll be damned...

'The Stand' 1.07 Review: The Walk

This post contains spoilers for The Stand. Check out last week's review here.  We’ve reached the part in The Stand where the gas pedal is essentially on the floor. It’s unlikely that we’ll see any down moments before the series wraps up next week. Which is convenient, because it feels like we spend approximately a week on a walking montage in “The Walk.”...

Costume and production design secrets from CBS All Access' 'The Stand'

This post contains spoilers for The Stand. From Boulder, Colorado to a revamped Las Vegas (or rather, New Vegas), creating the world of Stephen King’s apocalyptic The Stand is no easy feat. In the CBS All Access adaptation of this lengthy tome, the huge scale of this project was a massive undertaking for each department. Two very different approaches to rebuilding society require alter...

'The Stand' 1.06 Review: The Vigil

 This post contains spoilers for The Stand. Check out our last review here.  Things are heating up in The Stand as we see ourselves inching closer to the finale. “The Vigil” focuses largely on the missing presence of Mother Abagail (Whoopi Goldberg), but we also see some important developments in New Vegas by way of the Trashcan Man (Ezra Miller), and the very unfortunate e...

'The Stand' 1.05 Review: Fear and Loathing in New Vegas

This post contains spoilers for The Stand. Check out our last review here. The Stand continues this week with two primary plots. In Las Vegas we have Dayna Jergens (Natalie Martinez) and Tom Cullen (Brad William Henke) on reconnaissance, with Judge Harris (Gabrielle Rose) hiding out somewhere on the outskirts of town to try and scatter their arrivals. Meanwhile, in Boulder, Frannie’s (Odess...

'The Stand' 1.04 Review: The House of the Dead

This post contains spoilers for The Stand. Check out our last review here. There’s a bit of a good news/bad news situation going on with this week’s episode of The Stand. The good news is that “The House of the Dead” is the best episode of the series so far. The bad news is that has been a very, very low bar to clear. That bit of (well earned) snark aside, this week off...

'The Stand' 1.03 Review: Blank Page

This post contains spoilers for The Stand. Check out our last review here. A tweet was circulating about a week ago that said something along the lines of “This ain’t your grandma’s The Stand. This one’s meaningless.” Let me tell you, I’ve been thinking about that a lot. “Blank Page” marks the third episode of the miniseries, in whi...

'The Stand' 1.02 Review: Pocket Savior

This post contains spoilers for The Stand. Check out our last review here. Non-linear storytelling can be a huge asset for a series. However, it might not be the best method to lean into when you're adapting a story with the number of characters that The Stand has. This week's episode introduces us to several new players. The most notable of the bunch is Larry Underwood (Jovan Adepo), bu...

The Stand on CBS All Access: The Prophet vs. the Dark Man

Forgetting for the moment that Whoopi Goldberg and Alexander Skarsgård are actors and Mother Abigail and Randall Flagg are characters in Stephen King's The Stand — can you think of two people you'd rather see go head to head in a battle for humanity? That's the latest teaser from the latest iteration of The Stand, which will premiere on CBS All Access on Dec. 17. If...
