Stinger Topic of the Week: The Stranger and Locke & Key

26:13 In our topic of the week, we dive a little bit deeper into The Stranger and Locke & Key, both streaming on Netflix.

The Stranger is a British drama about family man Adam Price who is approached by a stranger with a secret. This secret leads Adam and Detective Johanna Griffin to a complex web of lies that sends them on desperate quest to discover the truth about the people closest to them.

Based on the book by Harlan Coben, the story is well-written, with a lot of layers that are expertly unraveled. Coben says the series is a complete story with a satisfying ending, and a second season is not expected. If you like crime drama like Broadchurch, you should love The Stranger.

Locke & Key tells the story of the Locke children, who move with their mother into the childhood home of their late father, Rendell. There, they find a series of magical keys that can pull off an array of feats, including fixing broken items, allowing their owner to control the actions of others, and opening doors to any location in the world.

This show was created by Joe Hill, who is Stephen King’s son. It’s a fantastic family show with just enough thrill and intrigue to make it great to watch with your teens. We had some questions at the end and we’re hopeful for a second season!
