And not the anodyne 1982 of Netflix’s Stranger Things with its running time of eight hours and its body count of one.
For the record, your honor, I counted 4.
Scientist in the elevator, Benny at the diner, Barb in the pool, and scientist attached to winch.
Okay, maybe it’s 2 if we don’t count the red-shirt scientists.
Anyway, the low body count is what makes it possible to watch this show with my 12 year-old daughter so I’m all for it.
P.S. What was the body count in Poltergeist? (Not counting Tweety and the Native Americans.)
