I was going to say, there are certainly a number of poorly made stephen king books turned movie/mini series, but there are definently a lot of good ones as well.
I'll add It to that list. It wasn't as great as it could have been, but considering it was on regular TV, which limited the amount of stuff they could do, it was pretty good.
The Running Man was pretty good, fit into the action film genre very well.
Had HBO, showtime, AMC, Starz, etc... all been doing miniseries in the 80s & 90s the way they do them today, I'm thinking several of his poorly made movies, could have been done much better, in much better detail in that medium.
