    What the heck did I just watch? Did they turn a crime drama into a supernatural thriller somehow?

    I am only on the second book of the trilogy now so I guess I need to finish three before watching this.

    Yeah you should. It looks like the 2nd series is combination of the 2nd and 3rd books.

    Ack, I am only partway through the third book so I will hold off on the show until I finish it.

    The trailers I've seen for season two are looking like what I was afraid of. Doesn't appear to be a new case but I could be wrong.

    After watching Season 2's premier last night it seems like they're going based off the 3rd book only and jettisoning the 2nd completely. I'm not sure how I feel about that. Granted Book 3 ties directly into book 1 with Brady, but I still would've liked to see book 2 made into a season.

    I hope that this becomes available to non-DirecTV subscribers at some point.

    I just read King's latest book 'The Outsider.' Having read the Bill Hodges trilogy, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Holly Gibney is a main character in The Outsider (great story BTW).

    After watching the first half or so of the season 2 premier, I don't think I am going to stick with this show. It's just not the kind of show for me.

    I thought the 1st episode was pretty slow, but I just finished the 2nd episode of the new season, and towards the end it gets pretty interesting. I'm looking forward to the 3rd.

    Is this just 2 seasons? I'm surprised because there are 3 books, but the end of season 2 seemed likes series finale. If so, it was certainly a different ending.

    I haven't read the books, but apparently season 1 & 2 covered the first book. There's still more stories about Mr. Hodges to be told. Not sure if they'll be told on TV though.

    Season One is pretty much all of the first book "Mr Mercedes".
    Season Two is mostly from the third book "End of Watch"
    They could not use the second book because the main characters don't even appear until half way through the story, don't know what King was doing there.
