22. David Harbour likes looking for negative comments

Stranger Things became a hit sensation practically overnight. Anybody who spent the weekend binge-watching the show (it came out on a Friday and I was done by Sunday afternoon, only because of sleep and food) agreed that Stranger Things was amazing.

As the critics praised the eight-episode series, many fans took to Twitter to discuss all the cool things and aspects the show explored. Plus, there were just so many questions that the finale left us with. If you were anywhere on the internet on the weekends following the debut of the show, many people couldn’t get enough of it.

For most people, that would be great news, but it also left David Harbour with a lack of reading material. Well, it’s not so much that he likes negative comments. Moreso, that he is rather overwhelmed by the incredible response to the show.

"So I would just troll Twitter to find negative comments and it was all just people loving it—and loving it for all different reasons. After hours and hours and days and days, I did find one really negative tweet and I saved it on my phone. I was so happy, I took a picture of it. I felt like there might be a backlash, that certain critics or fans were taken in but then people would be like, “It’s not that great.” But I’ve yet to see the other shoe drop."

“It’s not that great,” said one guy in a sea of millions, who was obviously watching a different show than the rest of us.
