I'm going to echo people and say: what a waste. Maybe I'm burdened with nostalgia for the 1994 miniseries or something, but I am not sure if there is any aspect of the current series that is better, with the possible exception of Flagg.
Did they know that the miniseries was going to be airing off broadcast? Because on the one hand, I appreciate they showed some of the glitz and the horror of New Vegas, but I think they could have done better given the freedom of a streaming service.
To take a for instance,, it totally underplayed and glossed over what Dayna did at every step of the way. It made her inquiries about Flagg seem super-obvious and clumsy. Gosh, could that new person in town who's been basically demanding to see the boss be a spy? They underplayed that she was put in a position to have to fuck Lloyd and/or his girlfriend trying to get info, to fit in, hell, to survive. Although Flagg playing dead was creepy, there wasn't the buildup there should have been to the notion that her only way out was to break a bottle and cut her own throat.
The scene where Nadine was trying to seduce Larry also didn't work for a variety of reasons. First, up till now, Nadine has been portrayed as a totally willing accomplice with Flagg. So unlike the book and the movie, the notion that she has any hesitancy about being his queen comes out of the blue. And along similar lines, there really hasn't been much established to suggest Nadine and Larry had at all a romantic relationship till now. In the book and the miniseries, IIRC Nadine had wishful thinking that she and Larry could be a couple with a HEA. Here, it seemed more like she just wanted someone to pop her cherry. In which case, why not just fuck Harold or basically any hetero guy with a pulse?
