Glossies Made Me Do It: Locke and Key on Netflix

Posted February 14, 2020 by shooting in TV/Movies / 22 Comments

Happy Valentine’s Day! Are you planning on doing anything fun this weekend?

It’s the second Friday of the month so that means it’s time for my Glossies Made Me Do It post, where I talk about what magazines have inspired me lately. If you have your own post, link up below!

Glossies: February 17 issue of People Magazine

I love People magazine. Yes, there’s plenty of celebrity news, but it’s also full of reviews, everyday people, and more. In the February 17 issue, one of their recommendations for the week is the new Netflix show Locke and Key. I’m a huge fan of the Locke and Key graphic novels by Joe Hill, and while I’d already seen the show was premiering, People magazine gave me a push to check out the first episode.

Glossies Made Me Watch It: Locke and Key

Locke Family: Netflix vs. Comics

I’ve only watched the first episode so far, which is almost an hour long. There are a total of ten episodes, so I hope to do an overall review once I’ve watched the whole season. However, I have to say that the first episode was really good. It sucks you in right away and it definitely doesn’t leave you hanging for any action or mystery. There’s plenty of that to go around, and I’m so curious to see how the rest of the episodes continue the story.

It’s been awhile since I’ve read the graphic novels, so I can’t really compare the two, but it feels fairly close to the books. Besides that, it was partly written for the screen by Joe Hill, the actual author of the graphic novels so that’s a plus!! I think the actors are fantastic, especially the three that play the Locke children: Jackson Robert Scott (Bode), Emilia Jones (Kinsey), and Connor Jessup (Tyler). Jackson Robert Scott actually played Georgie in the remake of the movie IT, so he’s well-versed in the world of the King men (Stephen King is the father of Joe Hill).

Have you watched any of Locke and Key yet? What about the graphic novels? I can’t wait to continue the show, and again, I’ll be sure to share my full thoughts then!

  1. I am so behind on all things entertainment, I hadn’t heard of this! It sounds like it’s pretty good though! I should really pick up a People and read it, lol!

  2. Jen

    Wait, I didn’t even know about this! This is super cool, especially since I am always looking for new shows. Thank your for sharing this with us!

  3. I saw a few of these earlier in the week my accident as others were watching them and I couldn’t help but catch what was going on. It’s not my kind if thing but it seemed like an interesting concept! the lady in the well creeped me out though.

  4. I haven’t heard of these books, Lauren. Joe Hill is Stephen King’s son? Wowa, those should be awesome books. Also, love an adaptation that the author has created. This is one I’ll watch for on Netflix! Thanks for sharing your Glossies inspired post 🙂

      I love the graphic novels, and it might fill things in more, but I’ve been hearing the show does well adapting it!

  5. I know graphic novels are so popular right now and my students loved them while I was still working. They did get reluctant readers reading!! But I struggled to know where to begin reading when there are several dialog bubbles in an image or frame. Guess that’s the old lady in me. I wrote my Glossies post but see the link has closed. Sorry I didn’t get it done sooner.

  6. I watched the first episode a few weeks ago and I liked it but I wasn’t blown away. I haven’t watched any more of it. I think it’s a show I’ll have on standby when I can think of nothing else to watch because the premise is quite interesting! I kept calling that kid Georgie because of IT, haha. I hope you enjoy the rest of it, Lauren!
