Anyone else watch this series?  I thought it was pretty damn good for a Netflix series.  If Goonies x Silent Hill had a baby, this was kinda it.

I have 40 minutes to go (I tend watch things in bits & pieces). But "good for a Netflix series"? Netflix has been putting out tons of good content (Amazon Prime too).

It's an awesome show, Netflix original has been producing great content.

Ok ok, maybe that comment was a little harsh.  There were a couple moments were I thought a little more effort would have gone a long way (night time inside the Byers house while daylight was coming in through the curtains) but it was still awesome.  Personally, I thought the show was great and was aching for more.

If you dig the 80s vibe, check out Red Oaks on Amazon Prime.  Lighthearted comedy.

Stranger Things was pretty awesome. Loved ET as a kid and this felt so much like that.

Anyone know if this will be the end of it or if it's going to be an anthology series? Hope if it continues it's not as continuation of this first season. Loved it just as it is.

I read somewhere that there will be a season 2 and but whether it will be a continuation or a new story was not confirmed yet.

I just finished the first season. I would prefer to see a whole different story line for a second season. IMO, I felt the first season tied the story together well and if they tried to continue on it, it may be a bit of a stretch. Absolutely great show though!

Same place I'm at. Kind of like True Detective Season 1. Just hope if they do an anthology or direct continuation they just don't fuck it up like True Detective. I know different shows and staff etc but most recent example I can think of.

Just watched episode 2, definitely plan to crank through it in the coming weeks. Big fan of the music, was one of the first things I noticed hah.

On another note, I agree with everyone that the netflix content is pretty solid. They churn stuff out pretty fast though, so its hard to keep up with whats out there.

I watched Flaked a few months ago and enjoyed that as well. Seems like every comedian is getting their own show on netflix; assuming it costs them nothing for the 1st season

Season 2 will be another self-contained plot.
