Why didn't this happen after the first episode?

Stuck up chick - "Don't you sell cell phones?"

Stock boy loser - "Uh, I'll build you one!"

God forbid people actually watch the show and try to enjoy it instead of nitpicking at every little detail and bitching about the show.

Well
Spoiler:
EMP effects usually happen right after a blast not a week later


Who cares if I'm bashing parts of it. I'm watching it every week aren't I?

Did anything happen with Hawkins? I've got my thumb, all ready to accept the "delete recording" signal, but unless something amazing happened...

I think it's time.

God forbid people critically think about how they choose to spend their time.

His daughter found out he was a secret agent and then he taught her how to shoot a pistol. That's about it.

Writers are actually being paid money to take a genuinely exciting concept, and reduce it down to small town soap opera drivel!

I'll gve it another week or two, but if something worthwhile doesn't happen soon .....

this threadcrapping would never fly in a lost thread. it's always the same people bashing it every week. If you don't like it don't watch.

Speaking of flying , is that nice looking plane at the "ranch" broken or something? Why in the hell wouldn't they have had it out to see if the rest of the world still existed?

It's not threadcrapping when you give your opinion on a show. Check the definition and then get back to us.

Quite the photoshop expert, Hawkins appears to be.

what a stinker. I'm sorry for "threadcrapping", and I've wanted to like this show based on the premise, but how can the writers keep cranking out stuff that wouldn't pass as an Afternoon Special? "You stole my stuff!" No, I didn't!" "you're right. Let's be friends again, mmkay?" Poo.

The store lady is a real bitch. She needs an attitude adjustment.

.... and if you don't like threads that have varying opinions (some of which - I know, this is rough to take - might not agree with yours), don't read them.

In a thread set up to discuss a show, criticism is not threadcrapping. Complaining about people expressing their opinion is.

Spoiler:
The EMP was from a high-altitude airburst. Watch the sky just before the EMP hits them

Gee, what tipped her off? Was it the fact that he was having them all rehearse who they were supposed to be in the second episode and she's just so dense it takes her four more episodes to make the connection?

I wonder why the EMP didn't happen when the bombs hit? I also wonder why more people haven't died of radiation poisoning. Hell, in the Day After Tomorrow, people outside the blast zone were dying left and right. Even the hero of the movie died of radiation poisoning, or it was implied by the end of the movie.

Dammit. I want the teenagers to die, at least.
