Castle Rock - New Hulu series based on King's fictional town

The Lounge is for non-sport-related topics other than politics, war and religion. Order up your favorite beverage, kick back and enjoy the conversation! LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • Teaser trailer is awesome, though shows nothing. Damn, am I psyched, though. There's sooooo much material to work with for King's work that touches on or takes place in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine.

    Finally a original idea, it could be considered a town of the Twilight Zone where virtually every thing King has written has a link too.

  • Well, since it's all going to be based on existing work, I'm not sure how original it is, per se; but I get what you mean.

    This has HUGE potential.

  • Wonder how much of it will have tie-ins to the old movie/book Needful Things. That was in Castle Rock, as I recall.

    And yeah, that's... AWESOME!

    I'm disappointed. I thought you'd written all this from memory. :D

    Seriously though, wow, what a huge cross reference. I mean, in hindsight I recognise all the links, but never saw them all thus summarised. Thank you!
