mr. mercedes (tv)

Finally, a good adaptation of a Stephen King story. Not that there aren’t a lot of other good ones, but so many are disappointing. This series was based on the Mr. Mercedes trilogy, but you could probably glean that from the title. Each of the three seasons was based on one of the books, though, interestingly, they were not presented in the same order as the books. It all worked out, though. I really liked it!

I had to rent it from Netflix’s DVD lineup because it was on some other streaming platform. This streaming stuff is starting to get like cable. We only have Netflix and Hulu and that gives me plenty to watch. Sometimes I feel like I’m missing out on some shows I’d like to see, but I refuse to subscribe to any additional platforms. In fact, Jake’s been getting Hulu for free with his student Spotify subscription so I’m not sure what I’m going to do when that expires. I guess either pay for both or take turns subscribing to the two.

My rating: 4/5
