Rank #1: It-Part One (Re-Release)
To celebrate the upcoming release of It, I'm re-releasing my reviews of King's masterpiece. Enjoy!
From the original episode description:
In 1986, the master of horror released the novel worthy of his title. This novel reflected many of the themes, characters, and story beats that he had introduced in his earlier novels and stands as his ultimate thesis of the horror genre. More importantly, it is the pinnacle of coming of age stories, a tale that places childhood friends at the center of a cosmic conflict, and only through the power of friendship can we overcome our fears. If that doesn't speak to Mr. King's sensibilities, I don't know what does.Oh, and it has a scary clown! Ladies and gentlemen, I hope that you packed your bags, because we will be spending the next month in Derry, Maine, home of Pennywise The Dancing Clown. Enjoy your stay, and keep away from the drains, the canal and the Barrens. You'll never know what you might find there. Or what might find you. . .

Rank #2: Episode 188-Castle Rock, Episode 1
Welcome back, or should I say, welcome home to Stephen King's most celebrated town, the one and only Castle Rock. We've all been waiting for this moment for over a year, since we first witnessed that surprise trailer drop on February 19th, 2017. And last night at midnight, the very first episode of this original series set within King's town was dropped. How did it fare? Did it live up to expectation? Want to discuss the many mysteries and Easter Eggs found within? Then you've come to the right place, everyone. Welcome back to Castle Rock!

Rank #3: Episode 180-The Outsider
Welcome back, everyone! Last week, King released his newest novel, The Outsider! Part crime-fiction, part supernatural, it's a great blend of the genres that King loves, and the mix creates for a new, enjoyable experience that plays upon real-world fears. Plus, it includes the appearance of a fan-favorite Stephen King character! That was such a treat!

Rank #5: Episode 147-The Stand, Part One (Re-Release)
Welcome back, everyone. Based on recent current events, I thought it was pertinent to re-release my examination of King's The Stand. When I watch millions of women and men gather together to protest intolerance and bigotry, when your neighbors leave their homes to protect your rights while others threaten to take those rights away, I can't help but think of Mother Abigail's message to her people. Remember, at the end of the world, God did not ask His people to go to war with Randall Flagg. He merely asked His people to stand against him. I'm re-releasing my reviews of Stephen King's classic in honor of everyone who is out there making their stand.
And for the record, despite what I say in this episode, I do NOT believe that Fran's baby is the Crimson King! :)
