The Whine King

stephen_king.jpgLeaving aside the whole question of Stephen King's extremely lame column (which...you know, talk of who's cool and who isn't couldn't be less cool in general -- and is even more absurd when it's coming from "your old Uncle Stevie," GAH), but was I the only one who noticed in the latest issue's Hollywood Insider (there's also a blog, not that this item is on it, for whatever reason) that he's going to be doing a new series on ABC? It'll be loosely based on what the magazine describes as his "mystery novel The Colorado Kid" (never heard of it). King himself says it'll be "closer to The X-Files than Supernatural," adding, "[I]t's not something that keeps me up nights, the way Kingdom Hospital did."

Ladies and gentlemen! He did it! The one-millionth reference to the failure of Kingdom Hospital, apparently the biggest tragedy of Stephen King's life since he got run over by that guy in the van! I swear to God, it seems like he mentions it any time anyone talks about ABC, TV, hospitals, or kingdoms; if he were Jon Favreau, it would be his getting cut from Mrs. Parker And The Vicious Circle. Like, can someone please tell this goof that he's one of the bestselling authors alive, and that maybe he should just take some solace in that instead of chewing over this one failed TV series like it was the last straw that sent him from Easy Street to living in a fridge? God.
