[TV] Stranger Things - Netflix

There's a new original series on Netflix called Stranger Things that has been getting some heavy traffic, primarily due to a scene in the first episode of some kids playing AD&D.

Here's a trailrer:


Aside from that, the series premise is really cool, I've just started watching myself. Take a read and see what you think.
This thrilling Netflix-original drama stars award-winning actress Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, who lives in a small Indiana town in 1983 -- inspired by a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences. When Joyce's 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, she launches a terrifying investigation into his disappearance with local authorities. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.

Finished watching the series a week or so ago. This was fantastic, I loved the way they kept it 80s style. If anyone has the time to spend to watch the 8 episodes out for the first season, you definitely need to check it out. Really glad to hear there will be a 2nd season.

If you still haven't taken time to watch this, I'm going to say, "GIT 'r DONE". Watching it the second time through with Jen who is watching for the first time. GOOD STUFF!

Ok so, if some or all of you slackers haven't bothered to watch Season 1 yet, you have until Halloween of this year to catch up before Season 2 premiers, better start making with the binge watching.

Here's the new trailer:

(False outrage warning) I really liked this series but I have to call BS on some of the stuff that went down in the D&D session at the beginning of the series. For one thing, you didn't have to roll a d20 to cast a fireball in any edition of D&D that were around in the 1980's. They didn't have DCC RPG in the 1980's. The DM would have had to role a d20 for a saving throw for half damage. However, that point is probably mute since there is no way a fireball is going to take out Demogorgon. He had 200 hit points and 90% magic resistance. Give me a break!
