I've recently been watching "Game Of Thrones." Haven't read the books (yet) but I find the series pretty awesome.

Finally got around to True Detective (first season). Man it's good, atmospheric as hell and there's no unnecessary action or cheap thrills to manipulate the viewer, as in most crime/mystery shows. I especially love that they've picked the Handsome Family song for the opening credits, one of the best contemporary country bands there is and perfectly captures the tone for the series.

I guess Expanse s2 is next, and maybe I'll take a look at Star Trek at some point. The trailers do not look promising, though.

I'm watching Supernatural, Outlander, Zoo, The X Files, Once Upon A Time, Berlin Station, Spooks...I'm not a fan of GoT, though...And the series I would like to watch are American Horror Story and Walking Dead, but I didn't have time for this until now...

And about the ancient series, I'm now watching Alf and Dinosaurs (the humor series created by Henson and about a family of dinosaurs, that's funny a lot).

Just finished season 2 of Stranger Things and season 1 of Mindhunter and the season Mr. Mercedes. ST was good but a clear set up to the coming seasons. Mindhunter was awesome and Mr. Mercedes great.

You didn't grow up in the Eighties so that helps due to the immense amount of references to Eighties teenage culture (pop culture and otherwise)

You may be right about that, but it's not only that, it's the whole thing with the show being called "scary" and "weird", when really it's not.

I watched S1 only now, and I'm 2/3 into S2. I liked the first very much. It's not the 80s references (although that is cool, for someone who grew up watching those films on VHS even if I wasn't born until '89). It's just that it's so classy and polished. Brilliant music and visual design, really quite good actors with sympathetic characters, and the pacing is great. The story was a bit whatever, nothing inventive or titillating, but it did the job. Individual episodes felt like their own entities, things were always moving along and there wasn't too much action. It also worked really well to see the three lines of investigation (nerds, teens and Joyce/Hopper) move separately.

I don't think it's "scary" in the "ohmygodgetmeoutofhere" way, but it's delightfully atmospheric and spooky. It's not like the movies it references were particularly scary either.

The second season is a little worrying. I think I've seen 6 episodes now and it feels like it still hasn't started. S1 begins with Will disappearing, but now they just reminescence about the previous season, hang out in arcades, visit people, chase stuff, etc. It's also a lot less tense when the major players in the story are already out in the open. It looks and sounds great, as usual, but the tension and pacing feels off. It's still good, just not as great.

It thought the show was a blatant reference to Freaks and Geeks, to be honest. Well, apart from the mystery/horror elements. The dynamics of the kids are very similar.

Yeah, I can see that sort of. It's not my kind of scary. What I find scary is shit like Inland Empire, Videodrome, and The Thing
