Re-imagining a Classic?

Having switched "away" from cable to Apple TV and Netflix, I had NO IDEA that a mini-series based on James Cain's Mildred Pierce was in the making... The movie (with Joan Crawford) is probably my favorite noir film of all time.

I guess if we live long enough everything will be remade -- but I can't complain. After all, I was originally afraid they would "ruin" Star Trek on me, and they actually made it better and more relevant.

I hope the remake of Mildred Pierce retains a nice big bitch-slap for Veda though. As I recall, in the novel she is even worse than she is in the movie. It's been a long time since I read it, but I think she's an opera singer in the book. I'll have to re-read it before the mini-series comes out.

So, since I don't have HBO, who's inviting me over to watch it?
