Advertisements Funny thing is while watching it so much seemed sorta familiar, so I checked and apparently I did buy the Stephen King book for my Kindle back in 2013. I really hadn't thought I did when I'd first heard about the series being made for Hulu. But it was quite enjoyable to see on the screen. I can't say what may or may not follow the book, but at least so far nothing is standing out as a big glaring what-the-hell-were-they-thinking moment like "Under the Dome". One thing I did find myself getting annoyed with was how Jake was reacting to some of the things in the past, as if they are totally unexpected to him, which they're really not. I hope it's just a bit of an artistic exaggeration/getting into the role, and it'll become less of a thing as the series goes on.
