I'm surprised this hasn't had its own thread yet, since everyone on Earth is talking about it.

So, yeah, who here has watched the show? The score is phenomenal & the 80s vibe is fantastic. Great acting all around. I found myself more interested in the characters than the general plot (the ending was pretty weak, imo).

This show is amazing.

They somehow found the only 5 child actors in the world who are actually really fucking good.

It plays out exactly as it was obviously going to from the first episode. No twists or turns. Nothing particularly interesting. Dull characters. Fairly boring for the most part. But it feels exactly like it's from the '80s, so I guess it's brilliant.

Oh my god, you're the first person I've yet heard say what I've wanted to hear someone say since I watched it. Thank you.

I was fairly... not born during the 80's, so I doubt nostalgia has anything to do with it.

I suppose it was fairly by-the-books but come on, the girl who played Eleven was phenomenal.

I 100% agree that the plot is nothing special.

But dull characters? Bad acting? No way. Winona Ryder is the only one who I thought was kind of "meh". And perhaps Matthew Modine, but he didn't do enough for me to give a full opinion.

Amazingly enough, I watched the first episode today.  I thought Ryder's character was fine.  Some of the group dynamics between the kids seemed a bit forced and unnatural, but overall it was fine.  Not enough to interest me sufficiently to want to seek out additional episodes, though.

Who said anything about bad acting?

There's nothing wrong with the production values in the series. In fact, I'd say the acting is very good, it's shot well and the music is pretty great - at least by TV standards. My issues are purely with the writing, and even then, in a fairly broad sense. The story just isn't very interesting.

So it's basically like 21 Jump Street?

Chris told me it's also another Lost.  Do the writers exist?
