    Just started watching yesterday. It’s better than what I thought. At episode 5 or 6. Perfect binge movie for Halloween. Spooky but Not too scary.

    A bit OT. Guess who’s playing Hellboy in 2019.

    Finished the season this past weekend. Now going through withdrawal. Those were 9 fast episodes. Again, so many reminders of my childhood (I was around the kids' age in 1984). Man, the way the Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy bludgeon you with nostalgia is almost brutal. :p

    I liked the pace of season 2 over season 1. Although, I don't like the villain this time, feels like token Hollywood "smoke monster." Not this again, ano to, Lost?

    Those Reagan Bush '84 election posters made me sad. Reminded me that while the US presidency was far from perfect nor noble nor ideal, at least they didn't have a fat, orange, moron in office. This past summer I visited the The Reagan Library in Simi Valley, and it was just such a time capsule.

    Stop it with the spoilers already! I haven't watched it yet! LOL! Just kidding.

    I've already watched the first 6 episodes. Will watch the rest this weekend...

    Finished S2 last night. It gets better (and faster) after ep3. Think I like this season a bit more than the first. A bit :)
    I can still see the alien looking monsters...

    Actually, Season 1 was just 8 episodes long. They added one episode for Season 2, however some people were complaining that one of the episodes was kind of a throwaway one (The Lost Sister?) since it really did not add anything substantial to the overall plot (according to them). I don't actually know what they're talking about since I'm still on Episode 6. LOL!

    There was more mystery for me in Season 1. S2 seems to have reduced itself pretty quickly into another monster movie.

    That's Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler) and Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers). Well, they do look good together...
