Quote from: badaids on June 28, 2022, 08:50:04 PMtotally lost touch with the charm and warmth that it had in that first season, they've cheapened that with all the 80s nostalgia callbacks
Quote from: badaids on June 28, 2022, 08:50:04 PMAnd I don't get why hasn't Stephen King sued them for ripping off It? You know, the whole town is cursed and its linked to a group of kids that live there thing.
Quote from: Mister Six on June 29, 2022, 04:49:08 AMIf that's a serious question, "a cursed town with kids in it" is nowhere near enough to warrant a lawsuit. And even if it was, why would he sue? It's a popular show and it'd be terrible press. And he's already rich as Croesus. Better business to let fans of the show pick up his books than alienate them.
Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on June 28, 2022, 10:53:36 PMIt doesn't make it less enjoyable, but things seem to be rather thematically confused so far. There's an obvious theme of conformist society persecuting the harmless "freaks", but...Spoiler alertthe boy that grew up to be Vectra was every bit as dangerous as the normies would automatically believe.[close]I certainly felt like the third series tipped over from skillful pastiche to lazy parody. They set it in the mall, for heaven's sake. That's about the most generically '80s seeing there is.
Quote from: PlanktonSideburns on June 29, 2022, 07:13:26 AMFeel like the theme of s4 is either WOOOOHOO NETFLIX HAVE US A MILLION POUND REMEMBER THESE OLD FILMS?!?or it's 'dear Hollywood, here's a 9 hour showreel of all the genres of film's we can make ok cheers bye'
Quote from: Mister Six on June 29, 2022, 02:32:23 PMSo basically it's the same as it was in the first episode, which is when I stopped watching? Phew!
Quote from: badaids on June 29, 2022, 06:05:42 AMIt was a serious question, there's a lot more similarity in the show than than just that. Just wondering likes.

Quote from: phantom_power on July 02, 2022, 12:27:26 PMI haven't read this thread for a few days as I haven't seen the last two episodes but I am really pissed off how many spoilers are floating around Twitter. They are mainly from accounts I don't follow but Twitter are pushing at me because they think I want to hear everyone's opinions on "Sci Fi" or "Stranger Things" or whatever topic. It is really fucking annoying because often you don't know what you are reading until it is too late. Are people less careful about spoilers now or is Twitter being a cunt? Or both I suppose?
Quote from: C_Larence on July 02, 2022, 12:37:36 PMI'd say a bit of both. Try muting these phrases, it helps clean up the timeline a lot.https://gist.github.com/IanColdwater/88b3341a7c4c0cf71c73ac56f9bd36ec
Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on July 02, 2022, 04:23:55 PMI was surprised to learn there was another series in the pipeline. I assumed the mega extended episodes meant this was the grand finale. Plus, Vector seemed like an appropriate final baddie...
Quote from: C_Larence on July 03, 2022, 12:13:09 PMThought it was a pretty interesting idea to make it look like all the good guys are backed into a corner and have no hope of winning before Spoiler alertthey win.[close]Wonder why nobody else has done that before.
