    During a contentious TCA 2014 panel, "Stalker" creator Kevin Williamson told a critic not to watch his new show if it was too dark for her. But does good drama always have to go that dark?

The rumor was that the changes pissed off the cast of the film, so much so that Lauren Graham actually left the film because her role had been greatly reduced and Hayden Panettiere was frustrated that her character had been "dumbed down significantly." Ever since, there have been rumors of reshoots and rewrites and other signs pointing to a plagued production, but wit...
