  • is this series finite, like The Stand, or is there potential for more seasons?

      • It will end in one season, unless they somehow manage to extend the story from the book and post-pon the ending or something..

  • They have said they would like more than one season, and they said it would end differently than the book. And this is a horrible choice for Barbie

  • Barbie? For a guy? Am I missing something in the English language?

  • Barbie is short for Dale Barbara. I really like this actor but a little too pretty boy for the role as writteb in the book. Barbie is a bit more grizzled. Oh well ill still watch. im really happy its a summer series to makes it like an event kind of thing.

  • Can we get Karine Vanasse to join the cast and have a Dean and Colette reunion? They were the best thing about Pan Am.

  • He is too young!

  • Uh, what? Wasn’t Barbie older? Like a lot older? Like someone in their 50′s at the youngest? That or my reading comprehension has seriously failed me.

    • I have just started reading the book. When Barbie is introduced,there is a line including the phrase “gentleman of thirty summers”. Unless there is another way to interpret that, Barbie is 30. Mike Vogel is 33, so while he may not be what some people pictured, I’d say he’s age appropriate.

  • He’s easily 20 years younger than that.
