Stranger Things

The first two episodes were kind of slow as they needed to setup the story, but things have certainly picked up. Just finished episode 4 a couple of minutes ago and this is getting good. Very cool show.

Re: Stranger Things

Easily my favorite Netflix show, right there with Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

Watching this show was just so enjoyable. Will probably do a re-watch soon.

Season 1 is probably a solid 9 out of 10 for me

Re: Stranger Things

I still need to watch Daredevil and Jessica Jones. House of Cards and Narcos are my favorite Netflix shows, but this is looking like it's on track to join the list too. It has a really cool retro vibe to it that I like too.

Re: Stranger Things

Has been mostly raved about in the Netflix thread. It is my favorite Netflix original.

Re: Stranger Things

Some of these are a stretch but here are some comparisons to late 70's early 80's movies. Especially ET, Poltergeist and Nightmare on Elm Street.

This really didn't feel like a show to me, its an 8 hour movie and I hope netflix keeps making them. It didn't feel episodic at all and the way they told the story was like a cinematic experience. They don't have to make a 2nd season but how can you not want a sequel to a classic?

I have also no doubt that the Duffer bros are gonna get snatched up by Marvel or DC after the success of the show.

Re: Stranger Things

We've been having a lengthy discussion, butt-kissing, session in the Netflix thread about this show.

Easily one of my favourite shows of all time and certainly one of the best on Netflix right now.
