I haven't seen a show of that nature/subject matter that's that freakin' good in a long while. So King-meets-Lovecraft-meets-Outer Limits. They took everything that was great about the old 80's horror movies and TV shows (Ray Bradbury Theater comes to mind, and Outer Limits like I mentioned) and made something really great.

Please don't let them fuck up Season 2.

Pilot was incredibly boring.

I admittedly just finished every season of the walking dead, so this was a serious shift of gears.

This was great. Weird seeing such an obvious formula but have the execution make up for it.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Really enjoyed this. Loved all the 80s tunes, synth score, graphics and references. Felt like watching every cool 80s movie at the same time.

Spoiler alert: there will be a season 2 next year if you didn't already know
