Also saw an incredible Demagorgon costume on the 'net. I'll see if I can find it.

Had tons of elevens at my door. Boys and girls dressed as her. I love that she broke through like that and no marketing person made sure the show creators upped her appeal to girls. It is one of the best things about original programming on streaming sites. They aren't required to appeal to advertising quadrants. A kid can just be a kid.

Sean Astin will play Bob Newby, a kind-hearted former nerd who went to high school with Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) and Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour). Bob is now the manager of the Hawkins RadioShack.

Checked Wikipedia and yep, as expected.

The performances were excellent but once again, the story was blah.

Happy for those who enjoyed it.

Part of the appeal is indulgence in nostalgia. I would imagine that for younger people it's a period piece with a very fleshed out world that they were largely unaware of.

Just finished the show, started late, but that is going to be a great addition.

Is this show any good.

I'll just say it...Winona Rider sucks. Her acting is so awful in this series.

Wish they cast someone else for that role

I like it alot, it mixes a lot of 80s, with some 70s and 90s horror/thriller type movies such as Spielberg and Stephen King. Many references and homages thrown in, even some I had no idea about. Very good soundtrack as well, somewhat Tarrantinoish.

I'll say yes, it's good. It's not a cinematic masterpiece artistic type thing. Go into the series willing to be entertained and you will be.

Very cool.

Huh, I'd read it was going to be based on a different cast, kinda like Fargo or True Detective. Oh well, I'll watch.

BTW - I wonder what the licensing costs were to use the Thriller/Vincent Price intro for this.
They could have gone with this instead, (probably cheaper):

Maybe it was too religious, but it's still very fitting for the era.
