    This show is amazing it's like Goonies crossed with X-Files. Check it out the whole series is out already.

    I watched it entirely the first day :D

    I liked it a lot.
    A mix with : Goonies, E.T., Poltergeist, Alien, Stand by me (though, I don't know that one, I just read about it).
    It has a very good 80's feeling, if you liked all these movies back in 80's you'll like it :)

    I liked a lot Winona Ryder's play.

    Just a note about the french version :
    "El" (I thought it was "Elle") is called "Elf" in french. Probably to match the LOTR/D&D board game style, as they can't give her a shorter and nice name based on her french name.
    I watched in English subtitled in french, so I always heard "el" but read "elf". I don't know how they dubbed it in French, I'll probably watch it in french again :P

    If I can't stand X-Files type series (suspense, mystery and whatnot aren't my kind of entertainment), will I still like this?

    I didn't feel like X-file, but I guess it could be compared to it.
    I think it's more poltergeist or Silent hill vibe (horror movies), some monster/ghost hunting, mixed with conspiracy with government and children trying to solve the mystery (goonies).

    You probably won't like it.
    You can still try the first episode. There's only 8, you won't lose a lot of your time.

    I think I'll look at it. While I don't like some 80's series a lot, I've been interested in some suspense anime series lately, maybe this could be funny after those.

    Ya more like poltergeist but also has a lot of X-File qualities like men in white suits, CIA etc.
    I've still 2 episodes to watch but away for a few days now so not sure when I can finish it up.
    Great music, atmosphere and acting, surprised how it came out of nowhere.

    They would be foolish not to…

    Though I think I would like to see a new story with new characters the next go around.

    This show was just such a blast. Personally my favorite Netflix original content, can't wait to see what they do for Season 2!

    Finally found the time to watch Totally Not Stephen King's Stranger Things, AKA "Nobody Tells Anyone Anything Especially When It Is Of Vital Importance And Would Be Of Enormous Help And I'm Looking At You Here, Sheriff Hopper... Things".
    I liked the show but I didn't really like the part of the ending with the

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Looking forward to the second season.
