Dude Watches – 11-22-63 – S1E1

*Edit: This is out of order because iTunes was being decidedly uncooperative and didn’t want to initially post. We apologize for the confusion. I love you. Want Cord’s phone number?

Caleb and Will are back with another Dude Watches…, this time focusing on the 8-part Hulu series 11-22-63, starring James Franco, Chris Cooper, and Josh Duhamel. It’s an extremely good book, published by Stephen King in 2011, and the series looks to be just as captivating.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, and Jake Epping from Lisbon, Maine is going back in time to try and stop it. Oh, and there will be obstacles along the way!

Al Templeton, a friend of Jake’s, runs Al’s Diner, which has been selling the best on-campus burgers for under $1.50 for years. How does Al sell these world-class burgers at Third World prices? He uses aged beef. You see, Al’s got a portal in his closet that goes back in time. To be precise, it drops him off at 11:58 am on October 21, 1960–some three years before Kennedy’s assassination. Al shares his portal with a soon-to-be-divorced school teacher (Epping) with the aim of stopping the tragic event and all those that followed it (Vietnam war, Nixon, Cold War, 9/11, etc.).

This week, we talk about the premise of the show, whether or not we would be willing to do some of the things Epping does, Stephen King’s It and Dark Tower series, Harry Dunning’s unfortunate past, carving up a tree, and digging up cell phone fossils. Please join us on this pilot episode and let us know your thoughts by reaching out to us at [email protected].

Caleb and I both enjoyed the show, and gave the pilot episode an 8.5/10. We eagerly await the next episode which will dive a little more into the horrible life Harry Dunning has lived at the hands and hammer of his father.

Please let us know what you think and leave a comments below, or on our Facebook page. We want to hear what you think, or if you have a series we should check out, let us know! Also, give us a review on iTunes. If you’d like to catch up on our other episodes of Dude Watches, including Seasons 1 and 2 of The Leftovers, click here.
