/h/strangerthings: where friends don't lie.
• No racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or anti-religious talk here. This is a headcycle about a Netflix show, not politics.
• Discussions to be mainly about Stranger Things. If you want to make crossover fanart (i.e. Invader Zim characters as ST characters), fan theories (i.e. Eleven is Jean Grey from X-Men) or fanfiction (i.e. Chief Hopper vs. Joe Exotic), it is warmly welcomed here.
• Respect other's opinions of the show. There are some people who like Eleven, but also hate her. And that's okay.
• And most of all, have fun, mouth breathers!
I started the first episode but didn't make it through about 5 minutes, and I know it's beloved, but I want to know - why?
From what I can tell "The Upside Down Place" is a big deal, I've even seen videos on how to do the effect in AF, Hitfilm, and Premier, but I don't get it.
Is it 80s nostalgia? I'm not tolling here, just wondering.
I guess I should, you know, actually watch and episode : )
