John Updike Comes to TV With ABC’s Eastwick
Fans of John Updike are in for disappointment if what critics say is true – Eastwick sucks. I looked, really I did, for a positive review but alas, there was nothing.
Really it should be no surprise. Can you believe that this is the third attempt at bringing Updike’s novel The Witches of Eastwick to TV? It’s either three’s a charm or three strikes, you’re out and unfortunately for all involved, it appears that the latter is the case.
Curious? You can see the pilot episode tonight on your ABC network station. But really it does sound like you’d be better off picking up a copy of the book.
