Who's watching Stranger Things?

    An 80s styled sci fi mystery original to Netflix. I just finished the second episode, but I'm already hooked and impressed!

    I have been told I should and I'm looking for something to watch while exercising, so...

    I liked it. A lot of 80s nostalgia... I personally got some E.T. vibes from it... :smile:

    We watched the whole season. My only knock was that everyone yelled all the time. Standing a few feet from each other, people yelled. Otherwise, loved it. And loved seeing Wynona Ryder at work.

    I just stopped having nightmares about it, so I guess I am ready for season 2.

    Ryder has not been recognized so much for this work. The children have taken all the credit. They did quite well, but I bet if Ryder had not participated, maybe the whole serie would not be much appreciated. So I'll say, Winona Ryder was impressive.

    At least she learned something from that Saturday detention.

    8 eps into season 2 and I'm not disappointed. Still a great show. A little more forced drama and relationships and the eleven story line was weak (so far), but still great entertainment!

    It's fantastic! Sadly I was so eager to watch series 2 that I watched all the episodes over a couple of days so now I have nothing for the next year!!!

    I particularly enjoyed the juxtaposition whereby the children were maturely cooperating and figuring out solutions and learning things whilst the adults were squabbling, petty and generally failing miserably to achieve anything.


    There do appear to be some very slight (and hardly plot-affecting) details that I think are oversights but with a show that pays so much attention to some small details, it's hard to be sure if other small elements are actually intended or 'goofs'.

    Doesn't detract from my entertainment in any way, though!
    There's a lot of really "bad (at least, not to my interest/taste) content on Netflix, so it's truly refreshing to see something that has been made with such an artistic devotion.


    Wynona Rider has the perfect face and expressions for her character I truly worry about her sanity!

    Hmm, so... ok,... Season 1 (Collector's Edition) just got released here on bluray, so... (on your recommendation) I'm off to buy it. :oldbiggrin:

    Edit: and... b#gger! It's not available here yet. That was the US target website. :headbang:

    Binge watched season 2 the night of release. Not a groupy, just decided it was time for a binge.
    Really good show though.

    I heard of the series and watched the two seasons in a couple of days. Now I regret that choice.
