We’ve watched 5 out of the 8 episodes on Netflix and I think we’re pretty much sold. (Fingers crossed for the last 3 episodes.)
Winona Ryder does a very good job as the mother of a kid that goes missing and the acting in general is great.
It’s a series full of TV tropes from the 80s/90s but all seemingly done purposefully and with respect for the genre, if I can call it that.
Whimsical, mysterious, innocent, familiar but unexpected at times, the story is engaging and very well written. If you like thrillers with a little stirring of the most basic fears you might just like this one:
Rick and Morty exists since 2013 and it’s amazing! Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon–the same writing genius that gave us Community–the series follows a young high school student called Morty, and his drunken, irresponsible, probably clinically depressed grandfather in their intergalactic (interdimensional?) adventures.
Watch the preview. If you like it you are going to love the series:
