A Hulu winner.

A clean, direct adaptation of King's novel, in all the best ways.

The eight-part miniseries, which begins streaming Monday, immaculately recreates the era - but it's also, at its beating heart, an exquisite romance about sacrifice and the perils of optimism.

Hulu's most ambitious original project... a well-crafted period look and an engaging leading man in Franco. But that slow pace makes it tough for viewers to stick around long enough to learn if Jake ever becomes the hero he's striving to be.

That the limited series squeaks by as just entertaining enough is a disappointment considering the pedigree of everyone involved and the reputation of its source material. Time travel and Dealey Plaza deserve better.

Despite its flaws, 11.22.63 ends up closing the deal in a way that for the most part makes it a long, strange time travel worth taking.

Audience Reviews for 11.22.63: Miniseries

A time travel tale gone wrong. Like The Dead Zone, 11.22.63 is about assassination. But this time there is time travelling involved to go back to the time when Kennedy was killed. No one really cares, and the story is not particularly compelling. Franco was really bad at playing the lead role. Overall, it's not something worth wasting 8 hours of your life on.

Crushed the expectations by making it more of a love story than a sci-fi thriller.
