Loved Season 2. I also loved how Steve and his kids have become a meme along with HopperDancesTo on Twitter.

Wife and I finally finished Season 2. Late to the table, but I like to watch an episode and give it a few days before the next...

Wife loved it, I enjoyed it about the same as season 1. Scumbag Steve >> adventures in babysitting Steve was pretty great. Wife HATED Steve in Season 1 but really changed her tone in season 2 - of course that's probably because she had a new mullet scumbag to hate.

Noah Schnapp (Will) needs some kind of acting award because holy shit he was amazing, especially for a 13 year old kid.

Season 3 trailer.

The girl who delivers the final line is the daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke.

When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was bullshit!

Does the third season get any better after the first two episodes? It has spent roughly 90 minutes on shots of Waldenbooks and Sam Goody at the mall and about three minutes on plot.

Yes.

It's pretty fucking awesome and accelerates a lot faster than most Netflix fodder.

I thought the first three episodes of season three where pretty slow but the rest of the season is pretty good.

Season 3 was awesome.  8 episodes that went by in a flash.  I actually wish they would spend MORE time on the slow boiling 80s nostalgia stuff.  That's much of the reason this show is popular in the first place.

Yeah....... I appreciate the nostalgia of the show, and how well they craft it.  But I didn't even like season 1 very much.  Setting and overall setup was great, but almost every character was terrible.  I hated all the kids (except 11).  I hated the mom.  I hated the teenagers.  The cop was cool. 

I just didn't like any of them, which made it hard to get through, despite everything else being well done.

I made it 2 episodes into season 2 before giving up and never looking at it since.

I have this thought literally every time he posts on pretty much any movie, tv show or video game. Lol

Season 3 was really good. I have some theories about Season 4 and where it might be going but we'll see. Spoilers for the end of the season mixed in with my thoughts on potential Season 4 stuff.

Man, I just mentally reached out through my wifi connection and slapped you.

I can see not loving all the characters, but hate?  Lost me there.

You can't know as much about pop culture as me and hate it. Anyway, Dippin dots were/are great even if storage is cost-ineffective. So, you just take that back.

My problem with stranger things isn't how embedded it is in pop culture. It's that most of the characters are crap, the writing is... mediocre at best. The story is a mess.

The teenagers, outside of Nancy, are largely intolerable. I'm with Teleku on this one. These are not good characters. They are unlikable and bad.

I enjoyed Stranger Things but it's definitely "junk food" TV. You like it for the nostalgia and some of the effects but it's writing is good at best, mostly serviceable at worst.

And then there's S2 Ep7 which was just an unspeakable abomination of shit.

I'm just annoyed no-one really helped Nancy's Mom.  All she wanted was to get ridden sideways.  What the hell.

I feel like we're really on the same page on this whole topic.

Also, Dippin Dots were fucking strange.

Finished binging this over the weekend, and I loved it more than season 2. It didn't have a dud episode like S2E7. The cast has probably gotten a little too big, but I thought they did a decent job of giving everyone something to do.

Haha, I had to go Google s2e7.  I do remember it being bad.  Or more appropriately, I donít remember it being bad because I tuned it out both times I saw it.

They could cut out Mike and Will and no one would notice. Dustin had a fantastic season. 'What the hell?!'

I stopped watching this a little way into s2 when it became too obvious that this isn't a mystery just shit happening one thing at a time with way too much portent, and the characters weren't going anywhere, they were just messing about pretending to be the goonies, but spooky. 

Did I stop too early?

If you weren't enjoying it there's no point to keep watching, it is what it is, it won't suddenly get a lot better.

Yeah, if you disliked s2 enough to stop watching, this series probably isnít for you.  As much as I thought it was less good than s1, I still loved it.
