It’s been a while since i have wanted to spread the word about a TV show as much as i do with this one, in fact due to my exceptional busyness these days i have been meaning to write this post for a while now. By now you have probably heard of this show as well since I’m not the only one who love’s this show. Everyone was talking about it and i was aware of it but took far to long to finally sit down and watch it and when i finally did…….
This show is straight out of my childhood and that was the creators goal. Its so 80’s. The music, the story, the artwork, the genre…..there is sci-fi but 80’s sci-fi is a genre all its own. The group of young friends & an adventure is also a genre of movie they used to make a lot more in the 80’s and 90’s. Think Monster Squad, Stand by Me, IT, The Explorers, etc. Like i mentioned earlier, the music is great too, nothing like 80’s synth and they even have one of my favorite tracks of one of my favorite composers on an episode, Vangelis. I have played the song so much that my wife saw the episode first and told me about it, i was happy she recognized the music. The young actors who play the group of friends, the typical 80’s bullies, the town sheriff and the mom played by Winona Ryder were all top notch performances.
I cannot say enough good things about it, but i also don’t want to give anything away. Check out the trailer and i can’t wait for season 2. You hear a lot of chatter about The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones but i liked the show better then all of them!
