More delving into the characters, more story development, and horror in the core of the story.
I complained about the cheap jump scares the pilot relied on to evoke fear. The main reason for my complaint is that I thought this series is more smarter and more mature to do such a thing, and Habeas Corpus proved that I was right.
The fear here emerges from the core of the plot without using cheap and useless techniques, not in the slightest.
The main character fleshes out even more, and the same goes with almost every character. Habeas Corpus actually didn't waste a single second, for better or worse. Because I felt this episode is a little bit convoluted, and there is still eight episodes to cover the whole story. Nevertheless, I miss this fast development in TV series nowadays. Especially, when everything seems to be connected to each other quiet well.
The series now seems to me to be a psychological horror more than a mere horror, or even a usual thriller. Castle Rock may be a kinda sick and disturbing series, and I hope so.
Also, the references to other Stephen King works/adaptations are jaw-dropping!
