Nope, it's perfectly paced. Much better than every other Netflix series to date that goes on way, way, way too long.

I´m not saying it was badly paced or lacked development, I just didn't want it to end. I was having fun with it.

I'm five episodes in. This is truly something great. Don't miss it.

All the kids amaze every episode.

They're playing with such big emotions yet they're so natural and authentic.

Regarding the cinematography, the Duffer Brothers mentioned shooting it with a RED Epic Dragon & then added film grain that was scanned from 80s filmstock on top.
Ross Duffer: In college, even, we shot on film. It's always hard to know nowadays if it's just nostalgia. I don't think it is, I think film still looks a lot better with the depth of it and a texture to it. It's a dying art. We are very happy with how it looks. We did our best to replicate our preferred aesthetic which is a film look; that’s what we were going for.
