  • Mr. Mercedes is a fine example of something that has been less frequent over the years--an effective Stephen King adaptation carried by strong performances and smart writing choices. Show More

  • Kelley has made Janey Patterson, as played by Mary-Louise Parker, into a romantic interest for Hodges. This fix is not only needless--that’s one reason Taylor’s Ida exists, as she did in King’s novel: to provide Hodges with some intimate comfort--but it seems both less believable. ... Putting that aside, Mr. Mercedes is awfully good. Show More

  • The 10-episode Mr. Mercedes isn’t a horror story. King’s tales are generally known for capturing middle-class angst, and the series has creepily translated that to the screen. Show More
