Well, that's true, you have to know a little bit of 80s movies or books to totally appreciate this. Even though I'm a 90s b***h, Stephen King is probably my favourite writer of all time, and this show is full of homages from his books, or from classic movies like Alien, E.T., Halloween, Nightmare etc.
That's why I think the only issue I have with this is how it lacks in originality. But at the same time, I'm impressed by how good it is even though it's so unoriginal. This is like the E•MO•TION of tv series.
