CASTLE ROCK (streaming TV pick)
 
The town of Castle Rock has long been explored in many of Stephen King’s books. Now, it’s the setting for a new streaming show on Hulu. Shawshank Prison comes under intense scrutiny when a young man is found in a cage in the basement of the prison. The head warden, who recently committed suicide, has kept him there in secret for an undetermined time. When he’s released and kept in a standard jail cell, he speaks very few words but asks for attorney Henry Deaver. Henry grew up in Castle Rock but no longer calls it home. He’s had a notorious past after disappearing as a child and re-emerging under mysterious circumstances. Henry’s home coming to help the prisoner comes with added baggage considering his past, his mother’s ailing health, and a town of rumors, paranoia, and paranormal activities.
 
WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? (home release movie pick)
 
Many of us grew up on “Mister Roger’s Neighborhood” on public television. It ran on and off from February 19, 1968 to August 31, 2001. As a kid, it was fun to travel along to “Make-Believe” to visit Daniel Tiger, King Friday the 13th, or any of the other puppets host Fred Rogers used on his show. This new documentary explores who Fred Rogers was behind the scenes and the power and impact his show had on generations of people. Rogers was a minister who was fascinated with television but was disappointed in the quality of the children’s programming. He thought there was a need for educational shows as too many kid’s shows were violent or low-brow clown comedy. He wanted to bring music, puppets, and his own style of ministry to help kids deal with their feelings. His songs were about hope and loving oneself in the face of adversity. “Mister Roger’s Neighborhood” became a massive success but was threatened when the Nixon Administration wanted to take away funding for public television. Rogers won that battle and proved his formula worked.
