Ep. 28: Golden Years-Real Deal Or Fool's Gold?

Posted: February 18, 2014, 00:20

With your hosts Hans Lilja of Lilja's Library and Lou Sytsma.

Welcome to Episode 28 of The Stephen King Podcast!

As usual, we bring you the latest Stephen King News.

We also crack open the King Crate and dust off the curiousity that was the short lived 1991 TV series - Golden Years.

An original work, created for television, by Stephen King who penned most of the episodes. It concerns a 70 year old Harlan Williams - a nod to Harlan Ellison perhaps? - who begins to age backwards and glow green at times - among other oddities. Is Golden Years the real deal or Fool's Gold? Or a mix of both? Listen to what we have to say. (Note - this segment runs in full SPOILER mode so if you have not seen the series as of yet and plan to do so, you may want to save this for later listening.)

Oh and we also announce the Audio Widget Contest Winner....
