Mike Wheeler: [sniffling] Just hold on a little longer, okay? He's gone. The bad man's gone. We'll be home soon and my mom... she'll get you your own bed. You can eat as many Eggos as you want. And... we can go to the snow ball...
Eleven: [softly] Promise?
Mike Wheeler: Promise.

"Will you be my new brother?" NO! (dialog)
22 September 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

The Duffer Bros give a clinic in how to make the old new again.

Showing how the trick is not deconstructing a formula that works, but rebuilding it in a way that is both fresh and new.

And they did an awesome job.

The "influences" may be obvious but the twists and turns, the dialog, the direction, the unusual casting, make the whole series fun, engaging, addictive.

The casting in particular. Ryder again does everything but chew up the furniture. So different from her film persona when she was younger! Natalia Dyer sports one of the most interesting faces I've seen in a long time. She is so sympatico and interesting, she steals all her scenes.

David Harbour usually plays bad guys but is terrific as a hero. Millie Bobby Brown is nothing less than unforgettable.

In fact the whole series is unforgettable.

Bring on Season 2. The popcorn is on me.
