I probably missed the thread. I did search but didnt' see anything. If I did, please merge.

I am addicted to this show. I can't say why, I guess maybe I am nostalgic for my childhood in the 80s. I am fan of Spielberg so this show hits that, a bit ET mixed with some sort of creepy Stephen King, "It".

Any other thoughts on it or recommends for good shows?

I guess I'll have to check it out. I was wondering whether or not to watch it.

If you already have Netflix, watch the first episode or 2 and see. It's not a long series anyway, but some parts are stronger than others. I admit part of me just missed my misspent childhood so I connect on that level. Some elements bore me, others I engage with more. For me I engage more with the boys on their bikes coming together to try to find their friend rather than the mom freaking out or the teenagers. It all depends. Plus, in full disclosure I've had more wine than is prudent, it's possible my judgement is impaired.

But I do like the retro 80s thing. I miss my childhood sometimes.

I am on episode 5. It is entertaining. not as good as Orange, Cards, Bloodline, Lillyhammer, Kimmy Schmidt but it is interesting.

I would agree with that, but I think its appeal for me lies in the nostalgia factor i suspect.

Yeah that is cool... I find myself interested in how it ends so that is good.

I thought it was great. It was definitely targeted for those who grew up in the 80's.
