Re: Stranger Things (Netflix)


I finally came to see the two seasons of Stranger Things now and wow did I love this show. Great 80's feeling, fantastic plot, interesting characters, awesome actors, nice soundtrack.

I also can only recommend it to everyone out there!

Re: Stranger Things (Netflix)


Yes I am just starting Season 2 and liking what I am seeing, EXCEPT!!!!!

I have a hobby. This hobby has my garage filled with Arcade Games from the 1980's. Defender, Joust, Ms. PacMan, Donkey Kong, Missile Command.

In the first episode they show an "80's" arcade with a character going for high score on Dig Dug. The Dig Dug Game CLEARLY has an LCD screen in it and not an original Cathode Ray Tube (CRT).

As a nerdy arcade collector goober this bothers me. Otherwise, everything else is great!

Haha, that's indeed super nerdy. But also an important detail when it comes to creating an authentic 80's feeling. Nonetheless, I believe they usually take very good care of such details.

Do you also have a Dragon's Lair arcade in your garage? emoticon

One thing I can already tell you without spoilering anything: To me it felt as if each episode of season 2 was better than the previous one. The last two episodes were especially outstanding, The only letdown was Chapter Seven: The lost sister which sucked.

Yeah, episode 7 felt so out of place. I can see that it brings a lot to the story but it could have been implemented better.

Another thing that bothered me about Dig Dug is that the machine only allows 3 initials for score keeping, so its not possible to write MADMAX...

Loved the 2nd season but for me it just didn't have the same impact as the first one?

Also closing my eyes and covering ears as I'm only on episode 4. I'm not going to listen to this. I'm not going to hear this now.

Adding a Dragons Lair to the Garage is a possibility. However, the DL is rare and pricey. The Laser Disc players in them fail and there's no replacement, just like the CRT monitors. So a solid working DL runs about 2,000 - 3,000 USD on average. A bit over my price range.

I'm steeling myself for episode 7.

BTW, that wonderful quote from Hopper from season 1 also made it to a T-Shirt. I'm SO going to buy this one here:

Hopper is so inspiring.
