Well any series that maybe could generate interest to the internet generation to actually watch the films and series that this show makes homage to (especially John Carpenter / Stephen King/ Spielberg films) should be applauded even if the programme itself ain't especially original or unique. David Harbour got his deserved breakthrough role though and Winona is finally back but it is the new kids that steal scenes.
HUGE fetich of the pre-internet world <3 it's like revisiting all these childhood goals (from booby traps to I want an extraterrestrial bf to go on bike adventures). We were just babies fed by Spielberg and Hughes movies. Yes, we all are totally aware that our nostalgia is being exploited <3 M O R E pleease.
You liked REC, POLTERGEIST or BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, you may like this one. Unfortunately it is slow (as most series), talkative, and the action doesn't progress as it should to maintain a strong interest. == Si vous avez aimé REC, POLTERGEIST ou BLAIR WITCH, vous aimerez peut-être ceci. Malheureusement lent (comme la plupart des séries), bavard & l'action ne progresse pas comme on pourrait espérer.
Me ne hanno parlato molto bene per tanto tempo e, alla fine, ho deciso di fare una chance a questa serie tv. Devo dire di non essere stata affatto delusa, anzi. E' una delle poche serie che veramente migliora andando avanti (anche se la fine della prima ha avuto un leggero calo di dinamicità), la seconda stagione è meglio della prima ed ora faccio il conto alla rovescia per l'uscita della terza. Dustin numero uno.
The best thing about this is the soundtrack, which is amazing. The second best are the kids, which are surprisingly well developed. Their interactions are genuinely endearing and engrossing. I think the show should have ridden a bit more on the suspense and mystery, instead of rushing to lay almost all cards on the table right away. It stripped it of some interest, but it remained enjoyable.
