I might be the only one but I thought Stranger Things was massively overhyped.
Don't get me wrong, I liked it. But I didn't think it was any better than any of the stories and properties it was paying homage to, or any better than any of the other recent nostalgia trips like Super 8. I enjoyed it, but ultimately it wasn't much more than heavy nostalgia. Talking to friends and co-workers or reading about it online you'd think it was the next Star Wars.
I'll happily watch season 2 and hope it builds on what they've got going, I just don't see how it's as amazing as everyone keeps telling me it is.
