I'm trying to ration myself to only 1 episode per every few days. I'm really enjoying it though, it looks like they've pulled off another superb season, and I see ratings from Metacritic are actually up on the last season.
^The derivative nature is even mentioned in the show itself. I don't think its trying to conceal its influences, I think its a tribute to 80's shit. I get huge hints of many movies/shows all with a lite-Stephen King veneer. Makes me nostalgic for childhood.
Anyway, I thought Season 1 took a while to get started; in fact, I couldn't get into it at first, gave up halfway. I decided to watch it again after S2 was released and totally loved it this time and so went on to binge season 2 in a day. I thought it was fantastic. As with many, the fucking score is top notch, its exactly the sort of electronic music I listen to and create. Really well done.
I liked the imposing nature of the shadow monster.
