I'm still kind of What the fuck? over this whole idea.

Part of me thinks this could be amazing. Another part thinks they're biting off more than they can chew.  Another part still remembers the Dome and wants to put this entire thing out of mind.  That part is winning by putting the theme song of Fraggle Rock in my head every time I see the title of this show.

Clap clap.

What can you tell me about gaming and fun in Charlotte, NC?

From Wikipedia:

On February 17, 2017, Hulu announced they were once again partnering with J.J. Abrams and Stephen King to create another limited series based on King's works. The series entitled Castle Rock named after the fictional town in King's native Maine which has served as the setting for a number of his novels, novellas and short stories.[2] A teaser of the series was released some time after the announcement by Abrams' production company, Bad Robot. The series is set to explore the themes and worlds uniting King's entire canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories. On February 21, 2017, Hulu issued a 10-episode order for the series, with production set to begin at a later date.[3]Filming is expected to begin in August 2017.[4] Filming will be done in the small New England Western Massachusetts town of Orange [5]. Melanie Lynskey, André Holland, Sissy Spacek, Jane Levy and Bill Skarsgård are set to star.

These are some of the people that played rolls in iconic movies based upon King's work.

So, the final episode of this dropped last night.  I'll give it another run through this weekend, but I wasn't that impressed with it.  It was very disjointed, and didn't really explain things very well.

I agree. The season overall was good and I enjoyed it, but the last episode felt... disjointed indeed. And no, it didn't explain anything or resolve anything at all. In fact... they were back at the start of where they were with no resolution or explanation at all other than "that's how life is" with a "one year later..." montage. That didn't set well with me. Maybe there's more to it that I am missing...

I hope they move locations around next season (if there is one, the after credits info kind of set it up for that) because I don't feel like yet another rehash of this current season as the second.

#StephenKing indeed.

Overall, I think season 1 is worth watching for Skarsgard alone.  Season 2 is supposed to be about Jackie Torrance heading out to the Overlook Hotel for research her uncle's story.  Hopefully, it's a bit more of a straightforward story.

A lot of Kings work sets up a great premise, and then he cant write an ending or resolution worth a shit.

Sometimes irony is pretty ironic.
