    Default Stranger Things

    I'm shocked there doesn't seem to be an individual thread for this show yet after all the attention it got. Anyway, i was looking for a thread to post this story about Barb getting a real job.





    'Stranger Things' fave cast in one of pilot season's most promising projects

    By Sandra Gonzalez, CNN
    Updated 8:30 PM ET, Wed March 8, 2017




    Actress Shannon Purser attends the Entertainment Weekly Celebration of SAG Award Nominees sponsored by Maybelline New York at Chateau Marmont on January 28, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

    (CNN)The young actress who garnered a cult-like fanbase despite her limited screen time on Netflix's "Stranger Things" could be headed back to TV.

    Shannon Purser, who played scene-stealing Barb on the breakout hit, has been cast in the pilot for NBC's "Drama High."

    Purser's manager confirmed the casting to CNN. Deadline first reported the news.

    "Drama High" comes from "Friday Night Lights" executive producer Jason Katims, who also produced "Parenthood" for the network. "Hamilton" producer Jeffrey Seller is also on board as an EP.

    The show is based on a book of the same name by Michael Sokolove about a drama teacher who changed his students' lives.

    Purser will play a character named Annabelle, a student who pursues a role in her high school's production of "Spring Awakening."

    Though killed off in the first season of "Stranger Things," Purser's awkward Barb struck a note with fans of "Stranger Things," and the character quickly became fodder for memes and hashtags.

    "Moana" star Auli'i Cravalho, who delivered a pitch-perfect performance at the Oscars, was cast as the lead "Drama High" last month.

    If picked up to series, the show would earn a spot on the broadcast network's fall schedule.

    Networks typically make decisions about which new series to greenlight in May ahead of their annual Upfront presentations in New York City.

    Love Barb! Hope she does well. She guest starred on an episode of Riverdale and I'm pretty sure she just finished a movie.

    We met our all-in-one-day binge watching goal. I loved it, I'm so disappointed it was only 9 episodes. I would have loved 3 or 4 more, even if it wasn't Upside Down story. Just show us more of the kids being amazing.

    I never finished Season 1. IDK, it bored me. But the Mr. started season 2 over the weekend and I was hooked. I thought it was great sans the Heroes episode. I didn't care about those people and wanted to get back to Hawkins.

    Like OMG, right? I almost wanted to tweet David Harbour a wedding proposal.

    Love, love, love this show. CornFlakegrl - I thought that Heroes episode was drawn out way too long. It should have been about a half a episode. I get the whole warriors thing, and exploring El's sense of self, but I was eager to get back to Hawkins, too.

    I even got sucked into the Beyond Stranger Things afterwards. Those kids are more intelligent and eloquent than most adults I know.

    My oldest kid got sucked in as I binged season 2. He hasn't seen season 1. He would look at me to explain certain parts and all I could say "You HAVE to see season 1!". As it neared the last eposides he would be visibly sad thinking it was over then the next show would automatically start and he'd lean in, gripping a pillow, glued to the screen.

    Awesome show. It really went in a different direction yet stayed very Stranger Things.
    We all laughed when Beyond came on after and the host said the first few lines. Yup... sucked right in.
    I agree with Waterslide, amazingly eloquent kids. Especially Millie. She shocks me. She's only 13 !!!!

    The cast is so great. Are we putting spoilers in here or no?
