Welcome to the latest episode of Who Won the Week, a weekly podcast in which Syfy Wire staffers Adam Swiderski, Aaron Sagers, and Dany Roth look back at the week that was and the stories that are blowing up the geek-o-sphere.
The journey of The Dark Tower from Stephen King's dark, twisted, and prolific mind to the big screen has been fraught, with lots of stops and starts, rewrites, and fan angst. Now it's here, with two big stars leading the way in Idris Elba as Roland and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black. Is it something lovers of the books can look forward to, or is it going to continue a string of problematic King adaptations? Our podcast team breaks it down with help from special guests Eric Vespe (Ain't It Cool News) and Victoria McNally (Nerdist, Bustle) in our latest look at the top stories from the week in geek!
