DID YOU KNOW
Did Stephen King just call HBO's The Outsider 'one of the best adaptations of his novel'?! Okay, in case you have no idea why we're freaking out, well, we'll have you know that there have been a lot of adaptations of Stephen King's novels (we mean, A LOT) in media, and most of the time, they're not that great. At least for King himself. We mean, they can be massive bops at the box office and still not win the approval of the author. Like, take The Shining for example. Did you know that he hated it with a passion? If you find this hard to believe, you can read what the author had to say about Kubrick's take on his work here. Yikes, right? But King is really critical (as he deservedly has to be) when it comes to interpretations of his craft. (Aren't we all?) And for us fans, writing a well-received adaptation is something, but writing a Stephen King-approved one is something else. So, yes, this is big news and actually an awesome one at that.
Now, we don't know about you, but we're totally gonna watch The Outsider series as soon as it debuts on HBO. Just from the get-go, it looks like it has the potential to take over the network and entertainment industry in the U.S. Add that to the fact that it has a good lineup of the cast and we have a new series to be obsessed with!
