Wondering if I should start this. I see it is getting mixed reviews.

Since when is 90℅ on RT 'mixed'?
Yeah it's getting good reviews, but RT shouldn't really be measuring tool, new Ghostbusters movie which is a disaster has 73% there, freaking 73%!

Is this great or is it great if you're an 80s kid?

It's great if you've watched classic 80s sci if like ET or The Thing.
I've watched them but I only really liked them when I was very young, I don't think I'd like a show like this on nostalgia alone. Without that, it's not worth watching?

Really enjoying it...I'm constantly mocked for my obsession with the 80's, so ticks so many boxes - like a huge dose of Spielberg wonder mixed with the mystery and weirdness of Twin Peaks. Not for everyone but a lot to like.

Finished it and loved every minute of it, Steven Spielberg + Stephen King with a bit of Silent Hill, acting is great overall and child actors were pretty good, read that Season 2 is in the plans, can't wait!

I like it, I like it a lot


Looks great, love the 80' feel and look and music

The kids aren't overly annoying and some good actors in there. It reminds me of so much stuff, from ET to Nightmare on Elm Street

Finished it yesterday.

I think it starts and ends strongly, but drags a little in the middle. Maybe six episodes would've been better. I also thought Winona was a bit 'meh' in her role. The kids were largely brilliant though.

Well worth a binge. Solid 8/10.

Just finished it. Pretty damn good, a great throwback to the 80's nostalgia. Freaks and Geeks meet The Thing or Silent Hill. Season 2 should hopefully be commisioned soon.

It wasn't even on my radar but watched it all in a couple of days. Really loved it, best thing I've watched for a while.

Just finished, fantastic stuff, absolutely loved it. From the plot, through the music, placement, the kids playing in it are great which is something incredibly uncommon.

Just finished it and like every one else is saying it's a fantastic show, one of the best I have seen in a long time.
