LISTEN: Castle Rock Season 3 Episode 1 gets the Podcast treatment

August 9th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Some cool news for fans of the now-cancelled Stephen King spin-off series, Castle Rock.

The series, made without input from King himself, drew from his books and stories and pulled characters together in stories that could have happened in the King-verse while ot necessarily referenced in the novels (although season one’s inclusion of Alan Pangborn contradicted a fair bit of what we knew about Pangborn from his stories in the books, particularly Needful Things, but anyway…).

As a big fan of King, I watched – and enjoyed – season one of the series but sadly never got around to season 2 and once it was cancelled I lost the compulsion to get it watched… there’s only so much TV you can watch, after all.

However, it seems now that the guys behind King Podcast The Losers’ CLub (named after the gang in the IT novel) have got their blood-stained hands on a teleplay for the first episode of the show’s third season and, fair play, they have turned it into a three-part podcast, which you can listen to below.

The episode begins “with the arrivals of a Dark Man, a beleaguered detective, a fire-spewing vigilante, a psychic drifter, and horror’s most famous vintage automobile. It’s a story as engrossing as it is asinine, and littered with more Easter eggs than you can count on, well, 19 hands.”

A Dark Man, huh? Wonder if he has the initials RF? Anyway, check out the full episode, all three parts, below and let us know your thoughts, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
