Added DiffLines:

!!The novel
* CompletelyDifferentTitle:
** The Italian title of the book is "L'Ombra dello Scorpione" ("The Shadow of the Scorpion"). There ''is'' a line about Randall Flagg being "the shadow of the owl at midnight and the scorpion at high noon," but since the symbol is never repeated or expanded, it's a somewhat odd choice for the title.
** On the other hand, the Swedish title, "Pestens Tid" ("The Age/Time of Pestilence/the Plague", depending on how you translate), arguably works better than the original.

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The clothing, cars, and hairstyles set the mini-series firmly in 1994. Even some of the cast were known for their late 1980s/early 1990s popularity, but have since been much less active in their careers.
** The book itself was an Unintentional Period Piece before King re-released the book with some updated material. [[TechnologyMarchesOn It has since become one again.]]
