'Locke & Key' Has Just Dropped On Netflix
Locke & Key has just landed on Netflix and it is ideal timing for some major weekend bingeing.
The ten-part series has been much anticipated, especially by comic aficionados, because it is an adaptation of bestselling comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW.
Despite dropping at midnight, it's already got people excited - with some refusing to sleep because they are so hooked and can't stop watching.
One said: "On to episode two of #LockeAndKey ... who needs sleep, right? Key House is stunning and creepy at the same time."
Another added: "Watching #LockeAndKey on #Netflix, it's impossible to stop after one episode, sooooo awesome!"
A third added: "#LockeAndKey IS OUT AND I'M ALREADY IN EPISODE 3 SOMEONE PLEASE CONTROL ME!!!!"

And it's no wonder it's going down well, with some describing it as a darker version of Narnia.
While we're yet to watch it at Tyla (that's what Friday night is for), from the trailer, we've long been expecting a Narnia meets Spiderwick Chronicles meets Haunting of Hill House.
What's not to like?
The story follows the lives of the three Locke siblings.
After their father is murdered in mysterious circumstances, the youngsters move to Key House with their mum.
On arrival to their new home, we hear mum Nina Locke say in the trailer: "I could never get your father to talk about his life here".
As the trailer rolls on, soon we see Bode Locke, the youngest child, speaking into a well saying "are you my echo?" to which it replies "yes" - shudder.
It seems like Key House has an awful lot to say for itself, with the siblings hearing voices in the home which are meant to help them find keys to unlock unknown doors.
Each key has its own unique magical power and ability, and may help them uncover the truth about their father's peculiar death - but at what cost?
It's like a creepy treasure hunt and you don't know what you'll end up finding.
From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), Locke & Key is described as "a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family".
It stars Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) as Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott (IT and IT 2) as Bode Locke, and Connor Jessup (American Crime) as Tyler Locke and Emilia Jones (Horrible Histories) as Kinsey Locke.
So if you're after something to get stuck into this weekend then you're in luck as Locke & Key is available to stream now on Netflix.
It's not like we'll be going out of the house anyway, Storm Ciara is on her way after all.
