Stephen King Thinks ‘Under the Dome’ Went Off the Rails, but Loves ‘Mr. Mercedes’

Stephen King isn’t shy when it comes to talking about adaptations of his work. Heck, King has spent the last 40 years complaining about Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.

Both shows ran for three seasons, and in King’s eyes, only one was successful: Mr. Mercedes. I’m a pretty big Stephen King fan, but I did not watch Under the Dome.
