Aaron Sorkin + J. Neil Schulman = Stephen King

As Aaron Sorkin famously said, "Good writers borrow from other writers. Great writers steal from them outright."

I enjoyed Stephen King's novel 11.22.63, and expect to enjoy the miniseries version as well (when I figure out how to watch it -- I'm not a paying Hulu customer). But when I first saw the blurb/dusk jacket for the novel, I recall thinking to myself "King didn't come up with that plot ... J. Neil Schulman did."

Unfortunately, the YouTube version of Schulman's Twilight Zone episode seems to have disappeared. But it was definitely worth watching, and will be again if I can find a link to post or an embed to plug in.
