literally just finished the last episode. my girlfriend liked it a lot better than me. i don't really get what all the fuss is about, there's plenty of retro stuff around these days
i mean yes it was good, but after seeing everyone on FB shit their pants over it, i expected much better
I saw like 3-4 episodes and lost all interest. It seemed interesting but the whole teenage high school drama bullshit killed it for me. The main kid's sister is a whore, her friends and her bf are douchebags, and it was annoying as shit.
I was confused as to why they just killed the owner of the diner immediately for even knowing about the girl but the sheriff finds out more about them after he find fake body, breaks into faculty and he just gets put back in his trailer after they catch him.

This guy knew A LOT. They could just got him drunk and sent him to some bar to preemptively discrediting him, or gotten him killed by some "car acident". Getting him back on the trailer was fucking dumb.

le 80's. diz u guys get it wus set in the 80's?
I meant what I said.
Hardly. That douche showed up at the last second and hit the monster with a bat. I wouldn't call that saving anything. Plus, not enough time had passed after he basically called her a slut and was a total asshole to her.
thanks i thought everyone was brainwashed
so i suppose you go to church every sunday with mom and dad even though you don't believe in god because it's "ok" and that's what "everyone" does
well i would say that's a good thing, except the storyline was not at all original. ever played a little computer game by the name of "Half Life"?
Binge watched it Friday. Wife was watching when I came home from work, made her start from the beginning so I could catch up.
I enjoyed it, decent show, but over all the last episode was a bit anticlimactic. It would have been better if the girl dragged the monster back to it's own dimension and was trapped there with it. I think the kid spitting up the slug at the end was kind of a poor attempt at a cliffhanger.
>Half Life instead of The Mist
Did you know they took inspiration of Stephen King too? It all comes to that man, bitches. If the series had happened in Maine, it would be one of his novels.
huh, interesting. says it's a short novel. i've never had the stomach to read Stephen's massively long-winded unnecesarily slow paced full length novels, but i'll give it a try
Maybe he doesn't like the show because it's a rip off of Stephen King's Mist/Half-life mixed with goonies and it uses gratuitous nostalgia to grab fan boy weebs like you and prevent you from giving the show any critical thought. The show doesn't even do the nostalgia very well either.
How did Will survive in the alternate dimension? He was there for several days. Is there food and water there? What about the atmosphere being toxic, why didn't that effect him? How did he avoid the monster for so long?
It's good because it has that "80s Horror" feeling mixed with that "Goonies" feeling everybody older than 16 loves. It's well writen, even with the kinda boring ending.
You can survive various days without eating. And the atmosphere did affect him. He was coughing Demogorgon fetuses and teleporting in the ending, did you even watched it?
He was constantly hiding from the monster, in his house and in his secret base.
It's like a combination of his novels. The "it's kids in their young years" ressemble It and "The Body". The Gov organization comes from The Shop, wich is mainly in Firestarter (and Eleven origins are practically the same as in that novel), but also in The Mist, when they create a portal to another dimension with monsters in it. Talking about Ele, her powers are basically Carrie stuff, with a bit of The Shinning. The stuff about a missing kid in another dimmension is done in Tommyknockers.
We will have to see what references the dig up in the next season. I'm expecting something from the Stand.
a month passed, dickwad.
he went Sammy Sosa on that thing with the bat. Manouvered it into the bear trap. The other two were fucked without his rugged manliness.
Also. Steve was a good guy!
You sound like a grade A faggot.
if people weren't talking about this show and you had come across it, you would've loved it like your own child is the point. And you just made that point for the rest of us with your dumb counter culture post
I had multiple friends tell me it was the best show they had ever seen before I watched it.
Decided it was not the best show I had ever seen.
Still enjoyed it alot.
Didn't get angry at reddit and muh main stream media.
Killing Joe Dingleberry and making it look like a suicide is one thing; killing Sherriff McWhiteknight would have brought more reporters and attention to the town when the secret ex-Fed group did NOT want that.
so you didn't like it as a function of you wanting to point out your superior knowledge of pop culture every chance you get.
>hurr durr i read a steven king book.
Countless stories have used that premise. You didn't explain why it wasn't a good show. You just highlighted things about the show that everyone already knew were present. That is not an argument.
The diner guy was early in the show before the sheriff knew anything. If the sheriff had investigated before the diner guy found the girl, sheriff would have eaten a bullet instead. When they kill Hodor at his diner, at that point only he knew about her and the rest was made to look like Will was the runaway kid. Plus the Feds didn't know anyone else saw the kid, which is how sheriff got on the case.
Because Will is a badass obviously. They made a point of letting the audience know that anyone else who get grabbed died immediately. Even 11 would high tail it out of there after a couple of minutes.
There were also line drops here and there about how Will was a survivalist, knew how to keep himself out of danger, and was protective of people he felt aligned with, hence showing up at the house and putting himself at risk in order to try and warn his moms.
Will was the best character in the show imo, aside from Steve of course.
>well i would say that's a good thing, except the >storyline was not at all original. ever played a >little computer game by the name of "Half Life"?
you think that's bad, you should check out an 80s movie called 'explorers'
You cannot defeat Demogorgon with a fireball. He's got 95% magic resistance and is immune to magical fire. He was the Prince of Hell, people! Why would you even need to roll a d20, unless for his save vs. magic, in which case you would want him to roll *LOW* not high. This show was just so unrealistic and poorly researched!
I haven't read Mist, seen Goonies, or have any 80's nostalgia (was born in 88).
I enjoyed it. One of the better shows I have seen lately.
>STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKE
You're fucking dumb imo. They never beat the demigorgon. they got stomped. They beat a chaos hydra or some shit with the fire ball.
Also lrn2 modgaming. This was clearly an advanced customized version of DnD these kids were playing. Too smart for vanilla dnd imo
Oh he meant teleporting to upsidedown world I guess.
I wouldn't be that surprised if they had Will able to world shift in season 2. Very possible that he was actually phasing between the two in that bathroom scene.
When Barb got dragged there the beasty didn't kill her immediately.
We can sensibly conclude that Will found himself in a similar situation, but
a) Wasn't a fuckbrain like Barb
b) knew his surroundings
c) was dialed enough into what was happening to him to get the fuck to some measure of safety as soon as he ended up in that world.
Beasty was too slow and dumb to keep up.
Barb screamed or tried to fight the beast, while Will run away.
Alternatively, seeing as there was something that looked very much like a newly hatched egg on the last episode, Will was kept alive as food for the baby monster.
>Nothing can ever take place in the '80s because even some synth music and '80s movie posters in the background are enough to put something on the same level as Hot Tub Time Machine.
I loved it, whole season was very gripping, no filler, or atleast minimal filler.
The story was well presented.
ONE thing i thought was funny was Barb's "ran away", she was a minor character, but they just let her die off after she was confirmed dead.
DO her parents know she ran away? whats going on with her?
Its minor but it caught my attention.
all we did was raid, rape, and pillage. every session ended with an innocent town in flames. then the Knights of Heironeous came after us, and when we killed them off, the Knights of Hextor came after us. we made so many enemies we had to fight the full pantheon, the whole deities and demigods manual. and then we claimed the outter planes for ourselves and a 20 year campaign ended in a naked fist fight over who got The Abyss.
I think she looks like N.Portman during the Professional years, which is hnnnnngg material.
they only showed us two people being abducted to the alternate reality.
even with your explanation there's really no reason why it recognized will as a mate and barb as food other than the fact that will had plot armor.
everything in the show was just too convenient.
thank you so much i still think she looks more like a boy but im into androgynous girls so its pretty hot in my book
While I do like androgynous girls too, those are some pretty weird tits...
no, just the one where the 80s government lab testing windows into alternate dimensions except the window turns out the be a door and the alternate dimensions has monsters that want to kill people.
You do realize that The Mist wasn't the first to come up with other dimensions and monsters for a story, right? It's okay if you didn't like it, but please stop trying so hard
>except the window turns out the be a door
what are you talking about? that's almost always the case in fiction. you say it like it's some very particular thing that the Mist did.
the whole dangerous monsters from alt dimensions thing is also incredibly popular.
If everything in the Rightside Up has a parallel in the Upside Down, trees, buildings, street lamps, etc., then 11 can just open any fridge. It explains what keeps happening to my hot pockets.
Never. Every woman that I've seen talking about the show loves t talk about how cuuuuuuuuuuuuute he is, even though le looks like a frog with down syndrome. He is the show's cute mascot now.
11's fake papa is an ex Nazi scientist.
The sheriff got paid off/ threatened to not tell. He will break this promise of course.
Mrs. Byers is hot as fuck.
The girl's boyfriend is largely a piece of shit, but will become a dynamic character. He probably dies in season 2.
This is supposedly Eleven...
it was meh, and compared to other good series it was mediocre, i felt like it was starting to get good in the last 2 episodes but the only thing that kept me into it was the 80s feeling and Nancy, not watching it ever again.
also the black kid doesn't have parents, when they go to his house and knock on the door i was like "i bet the black kid answers the door because no parents" it reminded me of the Deadpool movie joke, that scene was the only thing that made me smile in the whole series.
Did you just externally link to an image...on an imageboard? Is this some new meta baiting im missing out on?
it makes no sense, people should exist in the Upside down then... if trees can, every life can, also when they use the bear trap it doesn't affect the Upside down dimension, also when you move objects in the real world they should move in the Upside down, so there should be clothes and guns floating in the air... it just doesn't make any sense...
anyone else think she's kinda gross looking?
she's constantly pouty and looks like she has an eating disorder
The only thing close to a rule that I can think of is "anything that stays on the same place for ## days gets a copy on the upside down". That would explain why trees and houses have euivalents but not people, food or most small objects. But again, it just raises more questions.
People just flip their shit over things on social media. It's one of the things I find most annoying about it. It's like, they're just so eager to make sure everyone knows that they like x thing which is popular too.
They did it with Jennifer Lawrence. Then Chris Pratt. Then Amy Schumer.
Or bacon. Or taco trucks. People just seem desperate to make sure everyone knows they are in on a current joke, or they also like a currently popular thing, or they too ironically overblow the awesomeness of something on purpose because teehee teeee heeeee, right guys???
That said, I liked the show. I'm an 80s kid, so it had a nice nostalgia to it. But I didn't ejaculate 10 times per episode the way everyone on my timeline apparently did.
yeah man you're so below the influence. You didn't even post about it online, god you're so down to earth. Fuck wow you're so amazing, I didn't even know you saw the show until now.
Its actually pretty great that this is a thread. Alot the scenes were filmed places near me in Douglasville, Georgia. I've actually saw some scenes take place around me.
I completely get what you're saying. It was decent but not,"slit my wrists, end my life cause this shit is all the goodness in life I'll ever come across" faggoty shit social media and entertainment pundits have been spewing
