The banana bike seat with tape on it, too.
The cop looks like Peter Krause and Will's older brother looks like Edward Furlong. Ill report back once Ive finished the series.
You really don't need to watch the rest - you pretty much summed it up.
I really found myself rooting for the young kids in this show, Eleven, and the gang. Because they portrayed beautifully the relationship a bunch of neighborhood kids has with one another. But to not get too spoilery, the ending and the reveal of a lot of the world's built-in and upon lore was really unsettling.
None of you may know this, but they are both Garret Dillahunt. It's just like how Thomas Jane likes to fuck with us when he speaks with a British accent and performs under the name "James Purefoy". Bill Pullman and Jeff Daniels? Same dude.
Thank you for this. I was gonna have to vomit over someone comparing Lone Starr to...to...Jeff Daniels.
Now, if you want to compare Jeff Daniels to William Hurt, I'm cool with that. They both have that "I want to run as far away from you as possible" vibe about them.
William Hurt is fucking awesome (History Of Violence FTW) but he's best when he's Charles Grodin.
And nobody mocks Bill Paxton. Off limits. Aside from having the greatest death scene in history, he's also the biggest star ever. Terminator. Aliens. True Lies. Titanic. Twister. All monster hits, people love him.
Wtf. How do you leave Weird Science and Tombstone off that list? You're dead to me.
I'm a little late to the game and 4 episodes in currently. I love the characters, the scenes, the feel and the story telling. It's all amazing. What I'm not liking is the scifi elements. Monsters take me out of things for some reason. I'm going to let it slide because everything else about it is awesome.
Season two teaser. I guess these are episode titles?
The first season was set in November, 1983 and this says Fall 1984. Should be fun!
If you grew up in the eighties and are feeling old then this video will make you feel older. It's some of the kids from the show answering trivia questions about the eighties (like the eighties are so long ago...).
Eleven is a limey.
If you don't have Facebook it times you out and asks for you to log in so maybe someone more internet savvy than me can find a Facebook proof version.
I mean the 80s nostalgia is fun and all for a while and the mystery/horror tone of the first few episodes was great. Once it hit full monster movie mode I thought the over all execution dropped off. It also ended up suffering from way too many characters which took away painfully from some of the core cast characterizations. There is also some terribly weak writing. The kids reading the dungeons and dragons play book explination of "the upside down" that was an exact description of the show? The X Files this is not. Fun, entertaining, some great execution, but not as great as the hype would lead you to believe.
Did you guys know the show's creators, the Duffer brothers (identical twins too, like the brothers who wrote Casablanca) are youngsters? They were BORN in 1984. Yet they can visualize this shit better than anybody who actually remembers it.
Seriously, why haven't they cast themselves as creepy clone agents on their own show?
I am so freaking excited for this.
I think I am going to watch it over several weeks instead of binging it all at once, though I am debating whether or not I should get up at 3 a.m. to watch the first episode. I had that walkie talkie headset that Dustin's wearing. Except for the supernatural monsters and the Upside Down, that show might as well be home movies from my childhood.
Still stand by my last assessment, we'll see how this season turns out.
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SUCH A WANKER, CHET?
Yeah, I agree with your review. It was a mildly amusing season. Nothing exceptional about it at all.
I was expecting a lot more development regarding the government experiments, the upside down world, the monster, etc but it never really went anywhere. Maybe we will get that this season.
I guess having grown up in the 90s (although I was born in the late 80s) I just didn't care about the nostalgia stuff.
You're wrong, but good thing you took the time to comment on this thread.
I honestly can't tell if you're joking, or if you're actually that angry someone doesn't like the show as much as you.
