I can dream, can't I? I try to visualize walks on the beach... cookouts... long country drives... fun trips to Mickey D's.... Well, except for if you happen to be driving through the unlucky town of Derry, Maine:

If you've only read Stephen King's massive 1986 novel IT, it may take a minute for the above joke to sink in. This one is really for viewers of the 1990 TV miniseries adaptation, which boasted Tim Curry as the über-creepy clown-form of the monster beyond space and time. I actually liked the miniseries more than the book. The latter plodded on for 1100 pages, and contained some scenes where beloved characters behaved so, well, out of character, that it completely plucked me out of immersion in the story. We geeky types often rail against how movie makers ruin our beloved book-based franchises, but in this case I think the makers may have improved on King's material!
Don't look into it's dead-lights, Mayor McCheese!
