I’ve just finished the first series! Honestly, I nearly gave up after the first couple of episodes but am so glad I stuck with it - by episode 4 things do start to link together and by the end of the series a 40min episode flew past in 5 mins (that’s how it felt!) I haven’t started the second season yet but am really hoping it’s as good as the first. I know the budget per episode was increased massively I’m hoping it’s good!!
Just watched episode 3, and about to watch 4! There is a lot of mystery, and being an 80s kid I love the retro-ness of it all. It’s like all my favourite 80s films rolled into one programme! The girl who plays El is such a good actress - she can act without saying a word, and Winona Ryder is great.
