I still need to watch season 2 finale so I'm avoiding today's posts.

I just finally got to see season 1 in the last few weeks and think it more than met the hype. The kids are amazing.

Oh and Super 8 was good and nothing more

I liked season 2 a lot and when you watch the behind the scene stuff that's separate from the season it kind of answers some ?'s
It felt like something was missing though with 11 basically being on her own and not with the boys + Max.
I'd have like to see more of her with them. As it was she was with the gang as a whole for what 10 minutes.

Loved Season 2... probably not quite as much as Season 1 but it’s really close. I like it felt like it focused a bit more on Dustin and Lucas.

I loved season 2 as well. Different than season 1 but in all new great ways.

I was torn on 11. I also wanted her to join the "party" sooner, but think the way they made us wait really drove the story.

And I liked the idea of episode 7 but would have liked a different story maybe.

Just finished earlier this week and loved it. Nothing is ever quite as good as when it's new and fresh, but I thought they kept the quality pretty high.

Sean Astin and Paul Reiser were both great additions to the cast...(was a nice twist for Reiser NOT to turn out to be an evil d*ckhead I thought).

I can't say I cared much for Max or her over-the-top ahole brother, but hopefully they are not a focus going forward.

They need to find a part for 80's mainstay Rutger Hauer next season...

Last Thursday I wanted to watch something so I thought I'd check out the first ep of Stranger Things. By Saturday night I was done with both seasons (and I worked Friday...).

I really enjoyed it. It's one of the better shows I've watched lately. I think part of it was the nostalgia for the 80's, the music, the references...very cool. Really looking forward to the next season.

Date night for my wife and I last night.  So we go to eat and come home and binge watch the last four episodes of the season.  I'd have to say this may be one of the most perfect shows out there.

Like many have mentioned, nostalgia plays a key and the writers have nailed it.  The details as far as little things like when music was released is perfect.  You don't hear any songs that weren't released before the year of the season. 

I can't say enough how much I love this show.  Everyone can see someone they knew, admired, acted like, or actually were during their childhood in this series.

Season 2 was every much the equal of season 1. I saw on IMDB there are episodes already planned up to a season 4.

I finished season 2 a few days ago.  I think I enjoyed it more than season one, but not because it's better in some ways, but because I had lower expectations.  With season 1 all I heard about was how amazing it was, and I thought it was fine, but not the greatest thing ever.  This time I expected another nostalgia trip with bad acting and goofy 80's stuff all over the place, and it delivered that.

I'd argue that "bad acting" is far more your opinion than the fact you state it as.

I should have said over acting.  It's deliberate, and I think that it's objectively what they're going for.
