This is a amazing and clever series that features many items and themes from the Stephen King Universe of book and film. After watching and purchasing the first season for Castle Rock, I could not wait until they announced that a second season would be produced and when it would air. After watching it on television I started my countdown for when it would be available for purchase and now I have it to complete my collection. Now all I need is a third season to be produced.
So good! Great back story on Misery. I recommend any Steven King fan to watch. You also will just keep hearing “Joy” and when you see “Joy” at Christmas time on decorations, you will think of her voice saying it, lol!!!
Again, Castle Rock has an ensemble of colorful characters who are all up to no good and have compelling backstories of their own. It's exciting to see Oscar-winner Tim Robbins back in the town where Shawshank Prison resides. His character, Reginald "Pop" Merrill is a bit of a mystery so far, but it appears that he's involved in the criminal underworld somehow. The veteran actor is as charismatic and intimidating as ever.
If you liked season one, then you're going to love season two because it's even better. Lizzy Kaplan and Elsie Fisher are fantastic as mother and daughter. The storyline moves very briskly and it will keep you guessing. It's just a quality show and if you're a Stephen King fan, it shouldn't disappoint you.
