I've got 1 and 2 under my belt. I haven't been able to watch 3 yet. Great show though!

The fabulous 1980s. MX was a military program for moving ICBMs underground. There have only been good reviews for this show.

The following view will differ from many, as I'm an old man that started watching TV Sci-fi/weirdness in the 1960s (repeats of Quatermass and the Pit originally transmitted late 1950s) - I've watched it all, it's all been done before (just in Black and White ;) )


So, first season was great (It was different/original and Eleven made me laugh at times) - second season good, but not great - I'm only half-way through season three, as I'm trying to make it last until Lost in Space season two is released, as most of what I watch is either finished or end of season (Magicians - Castle Rock - GoTs - Originals - Star Trek Discovery... there's a few more).

I'm not sure about season three yet, a few things in the first four episodes have been a bit too predictable (almost season two with a few different characters), but I'll probably enjoy it more as it goes on.

So, overall, it's been a great experience, but I hope they don't try and do a fourth season (unless the third season sets up a season four with a slightly different plot and maybe adding a new villain(s) )

I am one of those who tried to watch it and stopped after 15 minutes. ;)

It has to keep my attention or I am out, I got bored.


But around me are many fans, not just here :)
