I mean cmon, there's nothing original going on here. Bunch of nerdy kids bullied by cool kids, older sister who's dating a jerk, single mom desperate to make end meet, a cop who's lost a loved one. Like did they just pick the top 10 archetypes of american tv & movie characters, slap on a scifi plot and make it happen in the 80's to please 20-somethings with nostalgia boners?
>>
>>72128144
And yet it's still better than 95% of the shows on tv.

This 100%.

I feel like I'm going crazy seeing everyone call this show amazing. The only exceptional aspect of the show is that the child actors are good. Everything else about the show is just decent or mediocre.

>>72129440
Im not the dude you replied too but that is pretty much the same feelings i got from the show. Is it the best thing ever made? No. Is it 100% original? No. But they did do a good job of mixing in a bunch of established character modes and made a pretty damn good story of their own. I really dug the soundtrack too. Real Tron Legacy vibe from it.

Netflix hasnt truely passed HBO but god damn they are getting closer and closer each year that its only a matter of time before they catch them and maybe pass them. Those will be great years for us though. Except some quality shows to be spit out (of course lots of shit shows will come, you know the copy cat shows trying to jump on someones else thunder) when they go to war over who makes the best shows/movies.

Finale was awesome. Slingshot scene. Dustin screeching about pudding. Elevens scenes.
My only grip is how Steven could kick the Monsters ass pre fire but a shower of bullets did nothing. Almost all of the Steven stuff was weak imo.

Also how is Eleven not kill. Hoppers scene didnt mean much.

I just wish the cg was better. The first scene with Shepard going through the portal looked super shitty, almost like I had a version with unfinished assets.

The flying van was pretty shitty too. They're on a budget so its only fair, but if the continue this I would hope the can allocate a bigger budget to it.

I think the 80s style and are direction were great. I thought it was going to to go full retard at the end like Super 8 but it only halfway did that.

Overall I enjoyed the hell out of it. I just wish that it would have ended with season 1 because I feel like this show is going to pull a true detective and have a garbage second season

As far as plot goes there's not been anything truly original for more than 100 years. Novels tried to create more original characters by having them be more detailed, by writings novel that were just long internal monologues of introspection with the plot being secondary. This doesn't fit with movies though.

It's not Sunglasses at NIght. I am a fukken leaf and I know Corey Hart.
I mean the song that we only hear clearly a few seconds when Teen Girl's mom picks the lock to her room.

At least he was allowed to be kind of a dick, and more complex than most super careful, cloying depictions of black people these days in which theyre mystically kind, cool and infallible. Plus he was right to question what was happening and maybe a little jealous El bonded w Mike and not him.

just finished bingeing on it and Honestly I thought it was pretty good except the fact the bad men never shoot at the girl even though they had the opportunity to do so on multiple occasions I also hope that if It gets a season 2 that It doesn't pick up where this one left off but starts a whole new story entirely

>television should be a friend simulator that goes on forever instead of about telling a long form story to completion

The trend of moving towards anthology series and miniseries is the best thing to happen to American tv. There's nothing to be gained from forcing writers to pad out more hours of content and leave everything open ended for a possible new season, then be told they're cancelled and need to wrap things up after years of building to nothing.

They weren't very smart. She flips one truck and the 40 trucks out looking for her just give up immediately.

It's almost like they wanted to keep her, an immensely dangerous weapon if controlled and reprogrammed, alive.

I have nothing against long term character development, but few shows use it well. I don't like the way length is imposed on tv writers where they need to fill up to a dozen hours of content a year, invariably leading to filler, stretching content, repetition, losing focus, losing cast and crew over time etc. There are few to no shows that don't decline in quality as they go on and are only ended after the point of no return

Most stories don't need 30-60 hours to be told.

This is caused by advertising. I think netflix has the ability to make multi season content without filler.

>>72136637
that's why it's sweet this was 8 episodes

on network it would have been 23

>>72127972

Super 8
Beyond the Black Rainbow

Fire Starter
ET
The Goonies
Jaws
Signs

This will probably end up being a better It adaption than the one coming out next year.

Why did the girl end up with him in the end?
>>
>>72135809
Get real. There's a bunch of child actors in the principle cast that are right around the corner from puberty. This isn't GoT where you're going to get lucky and have one child actress with midget Anglo genes and a flat chest for her entire adolescence.

Firestarter and It.

>>72130131
I think she made the wrong decision but Steve basically redeemed himself in my opinion by how he tried to make amends with John and how he risked his life to save them from the Demigorgon
>>
>>72136709
>This is caused by advertising
Advertising is what makes shows go seasons overlong, but I still find that the extra length given to television writing is flaw more than anything. Look how glacially paced GoT is despite having a large cast, huge budget and no advertisers to appease. They're still padding out every episode with bullshit that has no purpose but to fill 52 minutes a week.

I'd rather writers say what they need to say in as much time as they think they need. Short books still existed after War and Peace was made, and short tv shows should still be made even after MASH proved you could make a show last forever


>I think netflix has the ability to make multi season content without filler.
I have yet to see it then.

Akira, down to giving these super powered government engineered kids with uncontrollable powers numbers for names
>>
>>72136880
>I have no problem with them aging.
They can't do a season 2 taking place right after season 1 where the kids are all visibly older.

Anthology format makes perfect sense and it'll be a welcome change for this show to no longer have the dark industrial synthesizer soundtrack which has more to do with 80s-inspired videogames than the 80s itself.

Why would they have to make it take place right after s1? They're obviously at a point where many things are resolved and the only real source of conflict will be Will coping with giving birth to alien slugs.

At that age they could easily grow a couple of inches and have more mature faces in the span of a year. They're in Middle School right? That's when most people have their growth spurts.

Stand By Me

Not really, I don't know who did the psychic kids thing first but Carrie and Akira are the best ones, most everything else since is derivative of those two
>>
>>72137143
Well the show skipped a couple of months right at the end and showed christmas time, so next season is going to be the next year. I don't see how a few inches would change anything.
>>
>>72136981
There was probably a lot of fighting with Netflix just to make this show 8 episodes long instead of fucking 12 or something.
>>
>>72137014
>which has more to do with 80s-inspired videogames than the 80s itself

Terminator, Escape From New York, Near Dark, Thief

Ever watched a 80s film?
>>
Was anyone else bothered by at the last episode, Jon, Nancy, and Steve stop the monster by using a bear trap, one .38 revolver, and a fucking nail bat. But dozens of armed men spraying submachine-guns into the monster did fuck-all? I thought that the presence of blood strengthened it but I dunno man.

Yes...thats why it's set in the 80's. The entire series is a homage to the 80's horror/ sci fi ( even the fucking title font is a homage to Stephen King ) Once i realized this, i just went with it and had fun.


Watching 'Stranger Things' is like revisiting one of your favorite restaurant you haven't been to in years...and the food still taste great.
>>
>>72137214
They didn't stop it at all. They just fucked it's shit up enough to make it back off. Which was mostly the fire.
>>
>>72137214
Acshually, what they did at the house was trap the monster and then burn it. That's what really took it down.

Just shooting doesn't have much effect.

The girl in BTBR is named Elenor. She also is born from a woman who was experimented on using psychedelic drugs. There's also a portal to another world.
