Looks great. I know I'm probably one in the very small minority who enjoyed Season 2 more than Season 1, but this looks a lot more promising with the different locations, and the fact that these kids are starting to really grow up. It's cool that its actually being set over the 4th of July weekend as well. I'm getting Jaws vibes.

This is my most anticipated event of the summer.

I got chills from the trailer.

Feels like a movie trailer. But the kids have grown. I dont know how they can take this to 5 seasons with the same cast. But looking forward to seeing it.

Now that was an awesome season. Definitely better than the previous seasons IMO, although I know I'm probably one of the very few that actually preferred Season 2 to Season 1. I'm really enjoying the pacing of the episodes in these past 2 seasons even though I'm someone who can definitely still appreciate a good buildup. This show just seems to be really firing on all cylinders now and love the fact this season felt like pretty much a combination of some of my favorite movies from the 80's like Terminator, The Blob and Red Dawn. I wasn't expecting that at all, but kudos to the Duffer Brothers for being able to pull it off, because it can't be that easy. The fact that they are able to make this show feel so authentic to that period is a pretty amazing achievement, especially all the attention to even the littlest details.

If the next season is truly last than that's kind of sad, because I would honestly love another two or three seasons of this show, but it is what it is and at this point I'm confident that it won't disappoint.

This season was a goddamn blast. Easily their best and one of the most entertaining seasons of TV I can remember. It literally puts every summer blockbuster this year to shame.

Also, I adore Maya Hawke.

Love this show.

I had no idea Maya is Uma and Ethan's daughter, even though the resemblance is there.

The battle of Starcourt is my favorite battle outside GoT. The spectacle with the visuals was holy shit worthy.

Maya Hawke was fantastic. What a wonderful addition.

This season was on par, possibly better, than Season 1.

I thought it was a great season and agree it is better than Season 1.
Spoiler: show
I guess the questions remains is Hooper Dead? and who is the American?

My first thought during the finale was

Spoiler: show
that he jumped into the "upside down" to take his chance in there. and if the russians then opened the portal again, to obtain the demogorgan, they found him too? but previous episodes implied they already had the demogorgan. though without his death actually being shown, they're hugely hinting at him being the one in the prison cell.

Imagine how average and unoriginal this show would be without the 80s nostalgia to fall back on. Season 3's better than 2 but it's still some of the most banal mild sci-fi plotting on television, let alone film. The new characters kind of made up for most of it though, so it's still entertaining enough...but it's been clearly affected by the #metoo thing with its increased gender-role self-consciousness, to the point certain episodes play out like vague social commentaries. It's less dogmatic than it is observational though, probably unavoidable given the show's booming notoriety in the zeitgeist - it handles things pretty well, really.

Another oddity of the show is how emotionally unstable the script is: found myself frequently turning the volume down because some character was screaming, a few times an episode at least, and over half those had nothing to do with danger; and the adults aren't much better, with some of the most neurotic irrational behaviour available on Netflix. The Duffer Brothers have a weird concept of screen-worthy relationships - Winona Ryder is either mauled against her visible will by a schmoozing Sean Astin, or she's engaged in perpetual argument as sexual foreplay... basically 'Girl, Interrupted' grew up and moved to Hawkins as did everyone else with the same condition apparently.

But goddamn that opening theme song is awesome, and that new girl in the icecream store is almost worth the whole show. Felt a bad for the guy when it turned out she was a clit tickler.

Perfect review.

I enjoy the show overall but I find each season is yet another mild variation of the season prior. They do need to change it up for the next couple of seasons.

Season 3 is a goddamn masterpiece. Everything they've built prior led to an incredible run of eight episodes. I'd love to binge it all at once, I imagine it plays like a movie start to finish.

I don't care that the show is just one long ode to the 80s. It works. And it's one of the most visually striking TV shows ever. Looks beautiful so often. I don't know what their budget is, but they're making use of every single penny.
