News & Interviews for Mr. Mercedes: Season 1
This is an all-star crew operating at near the peak of their abilities. It makes for a tight, terrifying story of a retired cop and the madman who got away but won't go away.
David Kelly and Stephen King have been entertaining the masses for many decades now, yet in Mr. Mercedes, they're both doing some of their best work in years.
Mr. Mercedes is premium-unleaded nightmare fuel right out of the gate, without even a touch of the strange or supernatural.
The drama comes off as an unappealing combination of Stephen King's most ghastly horror moments mashed into a hard-boiled detective story. It doesn't earn its violence, even with a game cast and compelling ideas.
David E. Kelley definitely still has it, but working with some constraints - adapting a novel and/or working with a forceful director like Bender or Jean-Marc Vallée - makes it easier for him to remind us of that fact.
