I LOVED this show! I graduated high school in 1980 so it was great to see so many of those things and laugh about some of them. People had landlines with phones on the wall. The music brought me back for sure. And all the props, the set dresser got it all right.
I watched it a few months ago and I'm thinking I need to go back and rewatch, especially before season 2 comes out. I did see the kids on a talk show, sans Will, so not sure he'll be back or not in any shape or form.
Initially, I thought the cop was a big jerk. I think his daughter was taken as well, right? So maybe that's why he notices things a lot more, even in a drunken stupor.
Mom irritated me at first but then she stepped up. That made me like her more. I'm glad they didn't go down the romance road with her and the sheriff.
Poor Barb, although she was on the talk show too so maybe she'll be back somehow?? She could be a great character. Sort of an underdog type.
I hope the series continues and doesn't get too weird. I like weird and far-fetched, but it still has to be somewhat believable to me.
Sort of what I mean: I also watched The Fall with Gillian Anderson about how she is after a serial killer. I won't spoil it. Suffice to say I stopped watching mid season in the third season because the story used a plot twist that has been so overused. This seriously disappointed me to the point I stopped watching. I read the eps snippets for the following eps and they kept it up. I hope Stranger Things doesn't follow that road.
If we have a snow day soon I'll have to rewatch again! Great show.
