Struggling against revealing the truth behind the mysterious murder of a young guy at Georgia woods, Ralph Anderson, a young smart and courageous detective, who works hard and unites up with an aspiring investigator, as together, they struggle against finding out that the murder is related to a supernatural power, the thing that brings terrible for them and challenges them.
The Outsider works. Like any good King adapter, Price hews close to King's original plot while relying on his own strengths to give the world an evocative visual palette and characters that feel truly alive within it.
The Outsider is the True Detective season we've all been waiting for. It's appointment television, the kind you want to keep talking about, the kind you want to keep solving. Constant Readers, call that a page turner.
With the help of a great cast (led by Ben Mendelsohn) and eerie, stark direction from Emmy-winner Jason Bateman, "The Outsider" isn't on the level of Price's past work - but it's far better than this story has any right to be.
