    Yeah, I'm super glad there will more soon even though I've only seen one episode. I actually started watching because the news ran a little story about the second season being approved and I'm all, "Oh, yeah. That's a thing."

    @mlogan I got ya beat - it came out when I was home sick. One day. XD


    And then I watched it again with my daughter. And again with my mom. Hey boyfriend doesn't like it, though. He's decided that because there are kids, it must be a kids' show.


    Also - the condition that the character Dustin has is a real thing, super rare. I can't remember what it's called, but it's bone condition - they don't form right, teeth issues, no shoulderblades, if collar bones grow, they generally do so incorrectly and need to be surgically removed... sounds like no fun at all.

    I'm only one episode in, but I really like that it has such a huge focus on the kids. I think it's an interesting perspective, not to mention you get some super teenage nostalgia. Granted '83 was a few years before my time but riding on bikes and stirring up trouble? Walkie-Talkies? Super. Nostalgia. XD

    Guess I should watch it after I finish this movie. It's been on my list since it came out, but I just wasn't sure what to think of it.

    taarna, I probably would have but I had to adult. :p


    Yeah, Ms Littlefish, for me it's the perfect time period - so much nostalgia. I would have been 6/7 at the time.


    Slim - Yes, yes you must watch it. I command you! :D

    I didn't, heh. Upside of being sick, I guess. XD


    And yeah, Nostalgia, for sure. My mom even asked as she watched the first episode "where was this when I was in the 80s?" They got the feel of it down so well that she thought it WAS a show from the 80s.

    @slimmmeiske2 It is somehow, impossibly, Stephen King meets The Goonies. I have NO idea how. But it works.
