Dark government agencies and seemingly malevolent supernatural forces converge on the town, while a few of the locals begin to understand that there's more going on than meets the eye. Written by Charles J.

Trivia

Shares many similarities with J.J. Abrams film Super 8 (2011), which was also created and heavily inspired as a throwback to 1980s film, writing and themes - especially the influence of Steven Spielberg. See more »

Goofs

The US flag patches worn by the police officers are incorrect. On the patches, the field of stars has too many stripes to the right of it and not enough stripes underneath. On the actual flag, the field "sits" on the fourth white stripe from the top. On the patches, it "sits" on the red stripe below it, the fifth red stripe.

CORRECTION: It's a myth that it's a "Federal offence" to impersonate a member of law enforcement by wearing an actual uniform in a movie or TV show. (It is a state offense to impersonate a police officer.) Accurate uniforms are allowed, but most production companies either don't bother to get them right, or don't work with the local LE agency and get their permission, and thus come up with something close but not quite right.

User Reviews

 
Season 3 feels like a parody of the show.
4 July 2019 | by JarekReanimatedSee all my reviews

I don't know what happened but this is a different show, it's almost a comedy now. Everything about it feels off, the pacing, the directing, the dialogue and writing, even the characters are almost caricatured versions of themselves. Only fitting that My Bologna by Weird Al played in the second episode.

First two seasons were great, S3 is a parody of those two.
