SERIES PREMIERE: This new 10-part series begins with an extended sequence so unsettling, and so craftily and patiently constructed, that it lets you know, from the start, that this is one of the best adaptations of a Stephen King story in years. And it is. David E. Kelley is the principal executive producer helming the adaptation here, just as he did with HBO’s Big Little Lies – and once again, he’s found the right approach, and the right cast, to make it all work. Brendan Gleeson stars as a retired detective haunted by a mass murder case he never solved, Harry Treadaway is the killer who’s not through yet, and strong supporting roles are filled by Mary-Louise Parker, Holland Taylor, and others. To hear or read my full review on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, visit the Fresh Air website and David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.
