Abrams produced an adaptation of King's time travel novel '11/22/63' for Hulu and now they're once again collaborating on another series

Hard to believe there's been no discussion on Stephen King and JJ's 11/22/60 miniseries

I only recently got wind of this Hulu series and am about halfway through. This is one TERRIFIC adaption to one of Stephen King's very best works - and I usually hate Stephen King film adaptions. Very highly recommended series and I'm looking forward to this next collaboration.

11.22.63 is in my opinion in the top 20 TV shows I've ever watched. A masterpiece from the story to directing to acting.

I still haven't seen the new "It" but is he playing the same character in this?

Just by watching the trailer it's not clear, and he's simply listed as 'Shawshank Prisoner' on IMDB, so not sure what the connection to Pennywise (his character from 'It') is. I don't believe Pennywise was ever caught/apprehended - plus Shawshank takes place towards the earlier part of the last century and 'It' takes place a few decades later.

Looks pretty cool to see a lot of King's stories all in the same universe - hope it turns out to be a solid show.

Anyone know if the Spacek character has any connection to 'Carrie' for that matter?

4 episodes are available to view so far - anyone check it out? Thoughts?
Reviews look good.

I’ve been looking forward to this one. I usually enjoy King adaptations, but I’ve always come in knowing the story from the books, so seeing a plot fresh is interesting. Plus I’m a big fan of Noel Fisher’s work on Shameless and André Holland in The Knick (and if you haven’t seen The Knick, you really need to just drop whatever you’re doing and start binge watching it right now). Just finished the first four episodes that were on my PVR, so far so good. Great cast, creepy story that is a bit slow at the moment but developing enough each episode to hold my interest. I’m interested to see where they go with this.

I watched all 4 episodes of Castle Rock. It kinda meh... to be honest. Started off strong but the last few episodes have been really weak. Story seems to be a little all over the place. Some character arcs are not very interesting. Not enough of that Stephen King horror, too much talking and drama. I hope it picks up.

There are 5 episodes btw. I like the series but the pace is not made for 1 episode each week. I don't know why Hulu do it this way. I feel like The Kid is like another version of John Coffey in the Green Mile.
