Stranger Things 2

It's here! I started re-watching Season 1 last night to get ready, and I will likely start Season 2 next week. Can't wait!

I really liked Season 1 but worried according to reviews that season 2 is basically a reshuffling of the plot line and that the characters are not developing as the producers don't want to turn off their geeky fan base expecting to see folks a certain way. I will still watch at some point but my expectations are low.

Writing is definitely lower quality than last season. Disappointing.

Someone on here (cannot remember who?) was spot on when they said they should have left it alone after the one season. But in today's highly competitive and lucrative cable TV world we will see every series worth anything get bled until it is diluted of all quality and substance.

But I will still watch.

If Netflix really wanted to do a real "Stranger Things" they should have a one woman show of Winona Ryder just hanging out>



Also, every chubby geek girl is dressing up as Barb for this Halloween, not original.

"Look at me now, I'm dating Joyce Byers" yeah, the used up 40 yr old with 2 kids. Not the hot, hard partying 18 yr old.

Everyone seems to hate that episode, and I agree for the most part. It hurt the pace of the storyline and could have easily been woven into multiple episodes.

It was character development for Eleven and world-building for the show. I would be surprised if her "sister" doesn't show up next season.

I'm through 3 episodes. Not reading any posts above in fear of spoilers.

I like it so far. Tense, intriguing, and mysterious just like the first season, with a few twists and more unanswered questions still lingering (especially given the opening scene of this season). Looking forward to where this goes.

Yeah, it was an important plot point, but it didn't need a full episode. Otherwise, S2 was pretty good. I'm amazed at the abilities of the child actors. The interaction and dialogue feels organic, almost improvised.

Just finished season 2. I thought it was pretty good. I understand the Chicago scenes were background for Eleven but they might have been able to do that in momma's house. Ending was pretty good. Wasn't expecting that.

Finished it tonight. If season 1 was an A I give this one a B+. I thought it was great. I didnít really get why they needed to add the bully brother. Maybe he will be more important in other seasons Iím not sure. The scene where 11 returns after killing demagorgins was pretty sweet. I was really pullin for Bob the brain to pull through. I liked his character.

All in all still one of the best shows out there.

Just finished episode 7 last night (well, this morning, LoL). Love it so far! But that one episode seemed pointless other than connecting the sisters.

Finished Season 2. Really liked it. Like everyone else, the Lost Sister episode really seemed out-of-place, but I get why they did it.

I also liked watching the "Beyond Stranger Things" episodes where they talk with the actors/actresses, producers, etc. to get inside info on character development and some of the reasons and planning behind some of the plot lines, etc.
