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
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!
