I Am Binge-Watching "Stranger Things"

Is this a good thing? I mean, I think it is, and now I'm trying to convince BB to watch it so that we can talk about it. But I'd love to hear from any of you who have seen it (I'm on the 7th episode and will probably just go through and watch the 8th today before I do ... you know ... housework or sewing or stuff *cough*).

I looooved Stranger Things! The child actors are so amazing, and the writing is clever and emotional and nostalgic, and the monster is creepy and cool.

Can't wait for season two!

The actors impressed the heck out of me as well. And I agree with you about the writing. It works beautifully. It was frightening, and sad, and thrilling, and funny, and touching, all when it needed to be.

I was surprised by the fact that I didn't recognize Winona Ryder until the second episode; and that was a good thing. She's always been a pretty good actor, but age and maturity has been a real boon in her case.

I really liked Stranger Things.

Can't think of anything to say about it, but I enjoyed it. :)

I didn't really have any ~feelings~ about it, but the kids were cute and I liked the aesthetic. My ex-girlfriend loved it, though, she binged the whole thing and then rewatched the whole thing with me almost immediately.

I'm right up there with your ex-girlfriend. It really hit me for some reason, possibly because I could understand the terror of a mother fighting to get her child back, possibly because I still remember being one of those dorky kids, and being that love-struck teen. And probably for other reasons as well.
