This was probably the only good thing about this weaponized nostalgic crap
If you liked Donnie Darko 16 years ago then you probably like Stranger Things. I did and I do.

isn't that supposed to say Stephen King?
But that type's kind of synonymous with other things too, like The Godfather's cover, lots of Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum et al. But regardless the folks who make the show say it's a direct rip of King's font (Portrait I think?) and I won't deny that it fits in. The scratches are bothersome but they're not in the show, just in this intro.

Best thing about this show; When ever a strange thing happens they play this song. It's like a laugh track but with synths.

This show was good and made me feel good.

I'm too young and too Romanian to feel nostalgia for anything in this. I think the show doesn't get enough credit for being good regardless of nostalgia factors.
@Born Quite so. Even if one is not familiar with the things that are being referenced, it's a good story on its own.
Okay, I thought it was crap. I think it was designed for mass market appeal and really could have been much better. It was made in what I saw as a very calculated way, deliberately yanking the heart strings people were going to prostrate themselves over. I didn't think the story was very original, believable (in the context of space monster movies), compelling, or well acted, aside from the toothless kid who was great. The production design was also pretty half assed and I don't think the Hollywood shitheels who made this thing cared much about anything except making money. This is basically on a level with Michael Bays transformers except that at least you can say that had the self awareness to admit it was Michael Bays transformers. It disappoints me to see a well budgeted sci fi show go the way of the lowest common denominator despite having at least some potential. It took no risks and delivered very little return, so I can't in good faith really say I thought it was worth a shit. Hope that explains my position a little better.

I like that it used influences to make its own story rather than just be a shitty remake / soft reboot of some other franchise. That's how it should be done.
