Stranger Things
« on: August 04, 2016, 11:49:07 AM »
So last night while the wife was working I binge watched the first 4 episodes if this show and I'm now hooked. I had dreams about it and have been thinking about it all day. I can't wait until Saturday so that I can binge the last four episodes.

If you have Netflix (or a jailbroken FireStick) I highly recommend watching it.

I really enjoyed it. So nostalgic in the best way.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

I'm addicted to it. I can't stop thinking about what's going on. I'm sure when I finish the season I'll have questions I feel like discussing, but for now I just want to say "I love this show."

I loved it.  I lost track of all the movies it reminded me of in one way or another.  Everything from The Goonies and Stand by Me, to The Exorcist and E.T.

The soundtrack was amazing, too.  It really added to the nostalgia.

I wrote things in the Netflix thread about it... Loved this show and have pushed it on many people.

The fact that the whole thing is rife with D&D references is a nice bonus.

Ok I'm starting this.
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

We've been watching an episode a night with my almost-11-years-old son. Perfect age.

Before I knew about this thread or saw it in the Netflix thread, my brother described it as Goonies meets X-Files. Just finished episode 2. Hooked.

French filmmaker Ulysse Thevenon made this killer supercut of selected scenes from the show with the associated scenes from its 1970s-80s counterparts.

I am surprised no one has mentioned Winona Ryder yet.  Pretty damn good performance.
