CM Podcast 248 – Locke & Key Show (2020) Part. 2

We are back and discussing the rest of the Netflix series Locke & Key Season 1. A few weeks ago we started the conversation here. We are now picking up where we left off.

In this week’s CMPodcast, we cover the remaining episodes 4 – 10. Season 1 covers story elements that you can read about in the first 3 story arcs of the IDW Publishing comic: Welcome to Lovecraft, Head Games and Crown of Shadows. The original comic was written by Joe Hill with incredible art by Gabriel Rodriguez.

In this podcast, we compare the differences of the show to the comic. I noticed that overall, the show had a Young Adults feel and was not as dark as the comic. I feel that works best for the show so it gets a wide audience. Most of the changes actually work out better and we list most of them.

Jon and I discuss the different keys that are introduced and why they needed to create some brand new keys for the show. The ending has changed too. I liked this because it was a twist that both comic readers and first timers watching the show did not see coming. An interesting twist that sets up Season 2.
