Episode three develops Castle Rock's most prominent side-player who, up until this hour, was really only lurking on the story's periphery [Molly Strand (Melanie Lynskey)].

"Local Color" moves from scene to wonderful scene as a pitch-perfect distillation of Stephen King weirdness, character-driven drama, and frights - and much of that falls on Melanie Lynskey, who delivers a staggering performance...

Whether Castle Rock will choose to take advantage of its potential is still unclear. In an era where there are hundreds of shows to choose from, patience is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

Actors Andre Holland and Bill Skarsgård have a great anti-chemistry together; you sense that these guys aren't so much from different worlds as from different species.
