David E. Kelley definitely still has it, but working with some constraints - adapting a novel and/or working with a forceful director like Bender or Jean-Marc Vallée - makes it easier for him to remind us of that fact.
Mr. Mercedes is a fine example of something that has been less frequent over the years -- an effective Stephen King adaptation carried by strong performances and smart writing choices.
Mr. Mercedes has the Kelley hallmarks -- snappy dialogue, credible characters, a story that adds up, an overall feeling of polished craftsmanship. It may lack King's intensity, but it holds on to a measure of the author's dark humor.
Executive producer and writer David E. Kelley has delivered another powerful adaptation on the heels of his Emmy-nominated Big Little Lies for HBO.
