A boy goes missing in a small town, a mysterious girl with otherworldly powers stands in as E.T., evil scientists hunt some sort of bog monster X-Files Alien, Winona Ryder has multiple nervous breakdowns. All lovingly set in 1983.

What wooed me was when the internet went crazy that the kids were playing with a 2016 Millennium Falcon toy and not a 1980's one. Got me thinking, hmmm, might be a show for me!

They're pretty good with the 80s thing. It feels like Goonies meets X-Files meets Stephen King meets E.T. meets Fright Night meets The Lost Boys.

Ummmm.... It's a loving and exacting homage to everything you loved about the '80s revolving around an anti-Starchild X-Man and a bunch of scary monsters. You've seen it a thousand times and, yet, somehow, you've never seen anything like it before.

I'm going to break Stranger Things off into it's own thread at home point, but I am totally engaged after five episodes. (I had to go to bed in order not to be wiped put while helping Nacho with his book show.) I have a lot to say about it, make no mistake, but it's got me.

RottingCorpse:
Split off into it's own thread because I binged the whole first season which I haven't done with anything ever.

I even wrote a front page piece about it:

I am still so fucking wiped out by the bookfair that I haven't looked at this yet. But now I'm so hyper medicated that I can't even focus on these words, so...
