    Stranger Things is awesome. That is all.
    The ignore user feature is the greatest single asset this forum offers. Use it well.

    Wot. That's one of my favourite books!

    *downloading*

    Edit: watched the first episode. Been a while since I read the book, but it seems to stick fairly close to what I remember. It makes a decent effort of explaining the madness that is the two cities, but it loses some of the mysticism of the book. Will be interesting to see how they portray the increasing weirdness that must follow.

    Gets actually good at 6th, should have just done that instead of trying to make it a marvel show. Plaza's a great psycho.

    stays good. i love how well it manages to be stylishly weird without feeling 'wacky' (though in isolation many scenes, like the impromptu dance-off' would be unbearably wacky)

    The City and The City seems indeed to be quite interesting.

    It was quite shock to see Amos shooting and killing Dumbledore.

    There's tons of intersting books-into-TV-series projects out there, some of which I already have forgotten*). The latest one: Asimov's Foundation for Apple TV. Surprisingly enough, most of them are/were really good, IMHO.

    *) Yeah, shame on me, I actually should create a list to track 'em

    I fear what The Foundation will end up being, as much of it is just characters thinking about stuff so it doesn't translate into TV in any easy way.

    Wouldn't touch Apple TV with a bargepole but that only matters for however long it takes my ex housemate to DL it and throw it on his Plex server! Maybe you should do a list (and post it here so I can read it lol)

    This is definitely a concern for this series. Like so many book-to-TV series it'll either be great or utterly awful (or both at the same time, like Discovery).

    5 episodes in to The Terror now. Still good. Pretty faithful to the novel and to the actual history so far. They are (wisely) only showing the Tuunbaq as silhouette or blur of motion, no doubt to save on FX budget. Pretty sure it's only a one season thing though, so five episodes left to get through.

    Or someone has a Clue and knows that the mind is best at coming up with the idea of a monster and turning it into something really scary, way better than any FX. Best horror monsters are usually the ones that have the least screen time. Book also kept the Monster hidden for really long while.
