Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

poorly written, or directed maybe both.

I wasted my time on this show, I forced my way through the 1st season. the 2nd season may have gotten a little better but cant remember, it wasnt that memorable. so many bloopers I lost count. I cant imagine Stephen King writing something so bad so I will chalk it up to the writers and directors. Base the entire show on the 1st 3 episodes if youu must watch it

A total butchery

Read the book and you will know that this show is a total insanity! I do not understand why Stephen King would allow this mockery of his work to happen?
