I enjoyed this show very much. Usually TV ruins Stephen King books. I did not read this one, but next to the original IT, this was by far the best adaptation for TV I have seen. I read the producers interview on why he did some things differently than the book, ( like not having multiple redo's in the time travel scenerio) and he made the right choices for sure. Excellent mini series. High quality too. I was impressed.

Which makes you wonder what would happen if Jake went through the rabbit-hole and simply laid low for a few decades until Al builds the diner and steps through it himself. Would it be nested, recursive? Within Al's rabbit-hole, would the past try to correct itself to the normal timeline for him, even though that's not the normal timeline for Jake? Or would it only be additive?
