Really liked the show. To me it was like X Files meets The Goonies with the background music of Escape from New York. The kids were great!

Good show.

There are a few plot holes that I struggled with, but I'll get over most of them. I'm just hoping we get some answers next season.

I'm now three episodes in, and this show is just fucking awesome. I agree that it has vibes of The Goonies, E.T., and a bit of Twilight Zone, but made for adults.

So far, I'd say that this is some of the best TV in the last few years.

The best commercial during the Super Bowl was the trailer for season 2. Looking forward to Halloween.

The kids and I binged watched season 1.

I'm halfway through season 2.

Excellent series with nods to the 80's. Believable dialogue. Great imagery.

Would recommend to families. My 12 y.o. really loved it. A little scary (not gory or explicit).

My 13yo daughter has watched the series twice I think. I loved the first season but have not started season two yet

This is happening in my community. My oldest neice and nephew who are big fans of the show are pretty excited! It does look pretty cool.

Skipped the 1st season, and now on ep. 9 of season 2. Wow, what a show! Love the 80's theme, the kids swearing every other word, rock music.

Notice the some of the scenes ripped directly from other movies. One is the Predetor 2 warehouse scene where the FBI team gets taken out (the P2 warehouse is the ST underground tunnel, command team watching by CCTV, reflective dust in the air etc.), still an awesome show!

We just finished season 3 and there's even more throwbacks to 80s films. I love the time period, though the show is kind of getting old. All 3 seasons have pretty much been the same and it looks like there'll be a 4th.

^Yeah, I'm a couple episodes into season 3 and wishing they'd just kill this monster thing off already. Great show anyhow!
