"Stanger Things" on Netflix ...

creepy, supernatural plot set in 1983. Eight episodes available for streaming; I completed the first four in one night. So far it's been great. Very well done.

2. Mixed feelings about this one

I watched the first 3 episodes one night and thought it was a novel idea, and pretty good. By the time I finished I felt like it was kind of average. Not sure if it was just that it could have been shortened up a bit or what. So many of the characters seemed too cliched by the end. I won't give examples as they could be spoilers.

Overall I think it's worth watching but I guess I was kind of disappointed and I really can't say why.

3. I just finished watching the 8th episode. Loved it!

If you like the works of Stephen King and Steven Spielberg, you'll enjoy "Stranger Things." Highly recommended.

5. Fun series, but episode 8 left me a little incomplete (MAJOR SPOILERS)

I thought the ending was done very well, especially the confrontations with the monsters at the Byers house and at the school. Would have liked to see how Top and Joyce escaped the Upside/Down (that could have been an awesome scene), why Top got in the government car and what happened to the research facility. And are we to assume that Eleven is still alive? If you show Top leaving food for her it's a suggestion that she is. And then there's Will coughing up the "thing" at the very end, leaving the door open (I guess) for the inevitable sequel. And everyone seemed too healed after just one month, though the producers did a good job of avoiding some plot cliches I thought were sure to happen (like Nancy and Jonathan or Top and Joyce beginning relationships).

Great casting. The actors did a wonderful job, especially the kids.

9. I'm not sure (spoilers)

I watched all 8 episodes. Not sure what was happening.

How did the scientist (Modine) get the baby, and was she really alive or did he use her body as a recepticle for El? That whole story line needs more info!

When El claims she is the monster, does she mean it metaphorically, because she touched it and thus gave it entrance to this world? Or, was she of the same substance as the monster, but took residence in the little girl's body?

Why the harsh reaction to her hair for goddsake. So what, she has short hair, so frikken what???

I detected several things that didn't seem consistent with 1983. For example, a land line for $23? I seem to recall phones being waaaaaaaay expensive back then. And there was a time when you couldn't even buy a phone, they all belonged to the phone companies. When that finally ended, I think phones were kinda expensive.

When they were trying to lure the monster with blood, did they not notice that Steve's face was covered in blood? Why didn't the monster just take him?

Didn't the other two boys have family? All this stuff going down in their town, and they just keep hanging out with Mike, at the hospital, whatever. Where the hell were the other parents?

I didn't see what all the fuss was about.

PS: Oh, and will people never ever learn that if you are going to cut yourself for either a blood oath or whatever, why the HELL would you cut your hand or fingers, you know, the things that you use all the time and will notice the pain constantly?? I never understand that. Cut your calf or forearm or scalp or something, but not the hand!

10. Modine got the baby by birth, from the mother he was experimenting on

Tried to suggest her she never had one. Old fashioned rotary dial phones were cheap in 83. The rest - meh. It was a decent yarn.
