Yeah yeah late to the party but I just talked the wife into watching this, and we both ended up loving it. Great on nearly all fronts, but as this is the internet I'm going to spend the bulk of the post bitching about something.

Why, after shooting the show so obviously in middle and north Georgia, did they set it in Indiana? I mean, even though the town of Hawkings was made up, they still used local town and place names to the region (Cartersville, Jonesboro, the Etowah River). It's like when they scripted it they were planning to keep it set on location, but then changed plans at the last minute. Early on the show I even paid them the compliment of, even though it was set in the South, not overdoing the accents. Then I finally noticed an Indiana license plate, so compliment withdrawn!

But okay, other than that, some solid "nostalgia done right."

I'm SO in love with this (watching Ep. 4). I could listen to that main theme and the '80s synth background tunes all day.

"Nostalgia masterfully done right". It's like I'm suddenly binge-watching ET, Neverending Story, Navigator, DARYL, Labyrinth, The Goonies all over again with a sprinkle of Carpenter on it. Oh, and during the "high school moments", there is some some vague (and not so vague) "Nightmare on Elm Street" atmosphere (Nancyyy!!!) And I like it  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly? Love Letters

Just found this. Holy....  Heart Heart Heart

Oh good.  On Halloween, no less.  Popcorn, candy apples and spooky stuff on TV.  Yay!

I'll likely have finished Season 2 3.5 days before Halloween.

It does look good, but Will was barely in the first season. It starred the other kids trying to find him. Can they pull off a season that seems to star Will?

I finally got around to watching this. Fuck me, really good fun, especially for kids from the '80's like me. It wasn't overly in your face nostalgia like The Goldbergs (which I also love for different reasons) but it all fit pretty well. Enough that I was questioning if X movie would have come out before this was set and such. I feel like 8 episodes pretty much nailed the right pacing so that it didn't feel padded or stretched out (something the Marvel shows that I love do - 13 episodes is a bit long).

That season 2 trailer was fucking awesome.

Why?  That's pretty much her entire job in this show.

I stopped watching exactly when she entered and went full crymob.  HOWEVER, I went back months later, and then got into it.  The kids and maybe the Sheriff are the best actors and parts.  Ryder fits in eventually by going full Close Encounters of the Third Kind obsessed and it's OK.
