    Only just come across mention of this, 8 ep show produced by Netflix set in the 80's, featuring Winona Ryder.

    Going to swap the order around for the trailers, as the second one does a better job of grabbing your attention whilst the first gives you more background.

    @YenRug

    I just came to start a new thread but the app plays up sometimes and it didn't post. Checked to see and instead of my thread there's yours! Great minds tbink alike!?

    I think this looks great. It's obviously a love letter to 80s adventure movies and channelling Spielberg hard. I'm very much looking forward to it. I'll be watching on friday.

    The kid cast are spot on, especially Mike.

    I really want the soundtrack, the music all the way through is just quality.

    Done four episodes: it's absolutely brilliant so far. They've nailed the 80s aesthetic.

    And +1 on the soundtrack. I must have it: Carpenter-esque.

    Hope the quality keeps up for the remaining four.

    Liking it so far, although it a lot less "fun" than I was expecting.

    I watched 2 episodes last night, thought it was brilliant. I really like the 80s synth music. I was surprised it's quite scary! Looking forward to the rest.

    They've had to put effort in to make her look old though.

    Episode 3 now, this is awesome!

    And I still would.

    Found the first episode started very well but my attention started to wander a bit around the last 10 mins.

    So good. Four episodes in and don't want it to end so we're going to try pace ourselves.

    Finished it. Absolutely loved it. So well done; it nailed everything it needed to: casting, aesthetic/ambience, and particularly pacing. The eight episode length is just right, doesn't overstay its welcome and provides enough time for appropriate narrative/character development.

    Really chuffed with it; had a great time this weekend watching it :)
