Anyone else watched/watching this? Just started a couple days ago and have two episodes left. Kind of a cool bit of self-indulgent fun for those who grew up in the '80s. It's very reminiscent of earlier Stephen King fare like It and Stand by Me with a little bit of Firestarter thrown in. Some have described it as pandering or some '80s lover's j@#koff session or whatever, but I find it one of the more decently-done '80s period pieces that captures a lot of the flavor of the era for those of us who lived it. I don't think it's destined to be a classic, but it's fun.
The soundtrack is kind of a cool nostalgic thing too. Don't know that I'd put it up there with the classic '80s synth-based soundtracks like some of John Carpenter's scores or The Terminator, but it has that general character, lots of analog synths and repeating arpeggiated patterns. The songs used in it are mostly period-accurate (it's set in 1983), but I did catch a slip or two, like using The Bangles' "Hazy Shade of Winter" that didn't come out until 1987.
