    Ok ok. Honest take.  Maybe as a kid of the 80s I saw it more as encapsulating the innocence, fantasy and optimism of the 80s and I might be blind to some of the stressors you saw.  I’m interested in the media you say it references as being also ick.  Was “It” “Stand by me” “ET” and others also the same?  It’s a story about a close friend circle of boys, as it always is, so I can see how that can feel exclusive. But they let 11 in. They let Max in (S2).

    @akritenbrink You derailed the thread by bringing up your S1 issues in a S2 thread and then clearly stated you didn’t even watch S2. Now you don’t want to discuss the topic YOU brought up. If you don’t want to discuss something, maybe don’t bring it up in a discussion forum.

  • How about Dart eating Dustin's mom's cat?  A reference to A.L.F. ?
  • Not sure if this has been mentioned, but the whole telepathic/telekinetic children theme is obviously based on Scanners (1981).
