Clever show. IT's set in the 80's. Has an 80's style score (very synth). Even the intro is done in 80's style graphics.

Combine that with 8 episodes = 8 hours and it reminds me of those old miniseries' from the 80's.

Very cool aesthetic.

Plus, a few of the kids do a really good job, and kids generally suck at acting.

Yea. Love the retro score. It does feel like a miniseries from the 80s. But there are a lot of influences. Spielberg, Carpenter, etc.


I'm only on episode 5, but so far is very entertaining

This was freaking outstanding and made me miss 1983 in a huge way.

Up to episode 6. They nailed it. Reminds me of being blindsided by Mr robot last summer. A month and a half ago I had no idea this even existed.

Lots of influences, but totally original. Nice to see in this era of remakes and 'reimaginings' that we're currently in.

Yeah, the number of classic horror posters that pop up in the backgrond caught my attention.

Read this when you're done. Season 2 won't be an anthology, it will continue the story. Love it.

Reminded me very much of the 80's.

Just like King It was awesome until the end...

Have watched 4 of the 8 episodes, and this show is really, really good.

Fish 07-20-2016 09:30 PM

I blasted through all 8 episodes in one day. I'm on vacation........

Pretty bad ass. A few confusing moments and clunky writing here and there. But the kid actors/actresses have been great so far. Love how they've nailed the 80's theme. Can't wait to see where they take this...

On episode 6. Holy crap, now I see 'Altered states' influences. The old trippy William hurt LSD flick. Awesome stuff!

There's some colorful language at times and little ones might find the monster scary.

Id say over 12 at least.
