The wife leaves for work in an hour and a half, then I go to the basement and binge watch the last three episodes. I'm like a kid on christmas.  :wtu:

Just finished it. Great show. Leaves it open for a sequel or two. The only thing I had a problem with was Nancy getting back together with Jean Ralphio McDick-Tickle, I hate that guy.

Episode six almost had me in a panic attack it was so intense. Or maybe it was the   :smoke:

Really enjoying the 3 episodes I have seen.  Will try to squeeze in at least one or two more tonight.  Very well done show.

MC, i'm too lazy right now to figure out how to black out my post like yours so I'm just going to be as vague as I can. I actually liked him throughout the entire show. They never really made him a bad guy, just a dumb guy who couldn't understand that there's a monster stealing people away to another dimension. And you know that thing he does at the end was pretty funny/heroic

Watched the first 6 episodes yesterday. Hope to finish it up tonight. Really great stuff. The whole 80's angle is really done well.

He's a dick to not only Jonathan (that one is slightly justified) but also a  a complete asshole to Nancy and then Jonathan again (this time getting his bitch-ass kicked for it). He just seems like a sleezy "do anything to get laid' type to me.  :sbw:

He reminds me of everyone I hated in high school.

I don't think he's that one-dimensional and the character does grow a bit...
I think they did that well, esp for a supporting character.

I read an interview with the Duffer Brothers and they said that he was written as the complete douche that I think of him as, but as they were filming they really liked the actor who was playing him so they decided to write him a better ending/resolution.

Loved this so much, probably the coolest thing ive watched in a while.  The stepson did a bunch of research post last episode about it and I guess this might just be a two part event, which i love the idea of.  Tons of theories after watching.  So what sort of "upside down" connection is will gunna have?  Crazy connections to 11? Obviously 11 is still alive, I think at least. If not who is eating the eggos?  Lots of awesome stuff. cant wait to watch more, and cant wait for the soundtrack to get dropped(bet its gunna get pressed too).
It's like BJ Galore over here!


I use records for that and don't have to justify it to my friends.

I was kinda sad when I saw that it was only being released Digitally and on CD. Not pressing it would be a totally missed opportunity for more nostalgia.

I'm only through episode 4, binged 2-4 last night...

totally in love with every character's development, the music, the forensic side of it, and all else in between.

hopefully I'll be able to finish before we have our big move next weekend. I'm super pumped to see where this story goes.
honest to the point of recklessness...
