19 Dark Tower Moments

Well, howdy, folks!

Or more appropriately, hile, folken!

In other words, life gets…

Well, lifey sometimes, I suppose.

And what’s a nerd to do when life hands her its lifey-est?

Well, if you said grab the best fantasy series ever, written by The Master and delve back into for the whatever-eth time, you would be…

I’ll take correct, for $19, Alex!

As if both er all of my readers need to be reminded as to what blog they are reading…

So yeah, you bet your fur (or should that be your billy-bumblers pelt) that when you need an escape, The Dark Tower series by Stephen King is just the ticket!

(Of course, hot chocolate sprinkled with nutmeg would make a great accompaniment, wink, wink…)

Now, I have already reviewed all of the books in the series when I did my literary keg stand a few years ago.

But, I love writing about this series so much!

And there is so much to unpack.  I don’t think anyone could ever write too much about The Dark Tower series.

EVAH.

So here I am,ready, at your disposal, ready to provide you with…

More written content about the series, ya perv!

Anyway, I have come up with a list of moments in the series.

Wait for it…

Nineteen moments!

(Nineteen moments.  See what I did there?)

*Casually pats self on the back for being able to make it approximately three blog minutes without bringing up the number 19*

So yes, another list!  My INTJ attempts to inconspicuously wipe the drool from her face…mmmm, lists…

No particular order on this list, although don’t hold me to that statement (it’s still early, only 7 or so blog minutes.)

These moments are varied, and are pulled from all the books in the series.

Some are funny.

Some are head scratchers.

More than a few are tragic (we all know that reading almost anything written by The Master is a form of self-punishment.  But oh so worth it.)

But all of these moments were selected because they stand out, for whatever reason.

So, let’s quit beating on Sheemie’s mule, and get to it.

Time to count down nineteen of the most memorable moments of The Dark Tower series!

Oh, and before I forget:

Ledger Entry 0005: The Boulder Free Zone

This is one of many ledger entries written by a Constant Reader who has made her umpteenth visit to the world of The Stand, by Stephen King.

(Or a journal entry, if you prefer.  You know, back in the prehistoric days where we *gasp* used pencil and paper to write.)

In fact, you could argue that perhaps she has visited this particular world a few too many times, and is a little obsessed, as she has written a series of  entries detailing her adventures.

So, let us take a peek into this world.  Oh, and as always:

Castle Rock: Season 1, Episode 10 Recap and Review

Life can be a bit ambiguous sometimes.

What color is that dress, really?

The only sure thing is that it’s ugly!

And no, I know what Donald, Mickey and Pluto are, but I still don’t know what the hell Goofy is!

So, in order to deal with the ambiguity that is life, sometimes you just need to kick back…

And remind yourself of something:

M-O-O-N, that spells schisma!

In other words, go watch Castle Rock!

No ambiguity there!

Oh, and Pennywise is just your friendly neighborhood clown.  He’s just a lonely guy, and he just wants to have the neighborhood kids for dinner

Oh, right.

Back to reality this instant!

You know, the reality where having kids for dinner is actually literal?

And the reality (or maybe realities in this case) where Castle Rock is confusing as fuck and makes you question everything that you thought you knew, at least according to the last episode.

In other words, let’s review and dissect the season 1 finale of Castle Rock, titled Romans.

And, as always:

Castle Rock: Season 1, Episode 8 Recap and Review

Lately, I have been thinking that I need a vacation.

Things have just been a little stressful the past few days.

Work is crazy, I have not been sleeping too well.

I mean, I keep hearing this odd noise…

And I keep becoming unstuck in time, for whatever reason.

Maybe I should book myself a weekend at bed and breakfast.

Yeah, that’s the ticket!

A bed and breakfast with a theme would be even better, right?

And boy, those owners of the bed and breakfast seem so nice!

Maybe a murder house of sorts…

Or, I can just watch the show Castle Rock, and experience that bed and breakfast place for free!

Yes, I am talking about episode 8 of the artistry known as Castle Rock.

Last night’s journey was an interesting excursion, to say the least.

There actually was not a lot of that nuisance otherwise known as getting unstuck in time, but there was quite a bit of that nuisance otherwise known as murder by extremely violent, somewhat creative ways.

So join me in this week’s recap and review of episode 8, titled Past Perfect.

As always:

Castle Rock: Season 1, Episode 7 Recap and Review

Well, then.

This was quite the week.

Filled with a bit of confusion.

Lots of drama.

Kept us glued to our screens.

The entertainment was non-stop.

Of course, I am talking about this week’s episode of Castle Rock, titled The Queen.

Geez, did you think I was talking about some horror story or something?

Each week, Castle Rock keeps on setting the bar higher and higher.

And we got this episode.

Honestly, if this is the peak for the show and the rest of the episodes are just really, really good as opposed to the make you wanna slap your mama bad ass that is this week’s episode, I won’t complain.

But, I find myself getting blown away every week.  Somehow, I don’t think that is going to change.

So, buckle in and join me in the recap and review of this week’s wild ride, titled The Queen.

And, as always:

Castle Rock: Season 1, Episode 5 Recap and Review

Hi everyone.

My name is Leah and I have a confession to make.

I’m…I’m…

Totally hooked on the Hulu show Castle Rock!

There, I feel better.  I hope you guys don’t judge me!

So yeah, I have a problem.  And I love it!

I spend my free time (well time when I am supposed to be working, since real life is a non-stop horror movie) waiting for the next episode to be released.

I browse Reddit to read the latest, craziest fan theories.

I come up with my own crazy fan theories.

(A connection to the Crimson King is not a crazy theory.  It.  Is.  Not,)

And oh yeah, writing about the show, for your reading pleasure!

So join my in my recap and review of this week’s episode, titled Harvest.

And, per usual:
