    It's always important to manage expectations, though. So many shows suffer from diminishing returns during subsequent seasons.

    With that said, I'm assuming the fact they already have episode titles means the scripts are written for the most part. I think that's a good sign.

    Hopefully it's better than season 1. Started out strong but went downhill with each episode, in my opinion.

    I'm interested but I didn't find the show to be nearly as praise-worthy as most folks. I'm hoping Season 2 is better than the first.

    Your issues with the show are fairly odd, though.

    She told me she loved the show and thought Eleven being called pretty was touching.

    Beer-Belly's mom is a sharp lady.

    She's sharper than I am, that's for damn sure.

    The Eleven "pretty" thing comes from her saying that about a picture of Nancy Wheeler, right?

    Probably because she liked being called pretty while I was touching...no, no, I'm better than this.

    Anyway, yeah, just so we're clear, I think it's a good show, just not as good as a lot of others, so rather than going into a second season with the bar already set so high, I've got it down a few pegs, so the second season for me, at least, has a good chance of being at least as good, if not better.

    No, it's not. It's in the trailer. None of those things are spoilers if they're in the damn trailer.

    I haven't watched that yet but I heard the Stranger Things cast was on Fallon last night so I recorded the whole episode and will watch it later. I also heard Eleven does Nicki Minaj's verse from Monster so yea I need to watch that.

    Ya, a kid having some fun with relevance to a widely successful role she just played. Glad we now know her entire musical footprint.

    You know, I think it might have been one of those things you find on a discussion forum.

    Somebody offering an opinion on something without it having some wider inference. In this instance, Nicki Minaj.

    I know, how dare he. How fucking dare he.

    I'd say about 10 minutes into the first episode I was into it. Very nostalgic. Loved it.

    Binged watched this show like no other a week or so ago. Loved it. I'm a huge fan of 80s movies so this made me happy. I'm a huge mark for Winona Ryder also so when I seen her name pop up I was pretty pumped. Loved the whole main cast actually. Hopper is probably my favorite character though.

    Kinda unfair, as pretty much anything set to Thriller will come across as dope as fuck. Nonetheless this looks pretty dope as fuck.

    Thriller. Of course it's Thriller and I did not even for a second think about it being on the show. We are dealing with second level thinking here.

    To me, it's dead on for early Spielberg. I guess now that I'm thinking about it, though, there is an element of Carpenter in the way they build tension. But overall this show is much more in line with E.T., Close Encounters and Jaws than it is Halloween, Escape from NY, and Big Trouble in Little China. Of any Carpenter movie, I'd say it's closest to Christine.
    Just finished the show and was going through the thread to get everyone's thoughts. This post baffled the fuck out of me. The freaking opening and the score throughout the show was Carpenter written all over it. I am kind of surprised this went over your head.

    I need to watch a proper tv series. All I’ve watched the last couple of months has been Star Wars Clone Wars, the animated series.

    yeah I was surprised after I'd blasted through the season and a half on Netflix that it hadn't garnered more mainstream publicity. Really, really sharp, funny show with standouts from Bell and Danson

    3 episodes in and really enjoying this again. Top notch show.

    Sean Astin and Paul Reiser are good additions

    Binge watched the whole of season one and two back to back over the last 3 days. It wasn't my intention but the show was good enough to have me hooked, to the point where I was up till 4am trying to get an extra episode in before bed. Loved it.

    Just started this last night. I don't binge anything. It just doesn't work for me.

    But I'll have this knocked out in a week. The best new show of 2016 may be the best show period of 2017.

    Speaking for myself, I love supernatural thriller/horror movies (especially those retro style ones), so this was right up my alley. IT for example turned out to be one of my personal best horror movies of the last decade. I don't normally binge watch TV shows, at least not like this. But I've been off work lately, and also just enjoyed the show so much that the two seasons just flew by like they were nothing.

    Wife and I binged through this over the past few days. Worth watching and entertaining enough but I'm not as high on it as most folks (I think I said that after season one, as well). Good characters, great musical score, nails the time period vibe, good amount of intrigue but also cliched, predictable, and a bit underwhelming in some regards, too. I'd say it's good, not great.

    The first scene of the season should have been the last scene and episode 7 should have been an episode in season 3.

    I'm two episodes in to the first season and I'm enjoying it so far, but I hate Wynona's scenes. She is coming off horribly annoying. Someone should tell her character to take a deep breath before she speaks.

    Ah yeah, that reminds me, Wynona/her character are fucking unbearable. She is the worst part of this show, hands down.

    I don't think its the character itself that's annoying. IMO its the way she play it that was unbearable at times. She becomes less annoying in the second season though.

    She's always shouting or crying at everyone, barking orders and arrogantly certain she knows what's best because TRUST ME I'M THE MOM WHAT ABOUT MY BOY?! First season I remember her just sobbing all the time, this season it's less crying but when she's not, she's demanding everyone do what she tells them because I'M THE MOM I KNOW WHAT'S BEST.

    I think Millie Bobby Brown is the worst part of the show. Her acting is at times fairly horrible.

    I don't really have a problem with that. Its just the way she delivers those lines that annoyed me. Either way, the producers seemed to want it that way, so I dunno.

    Billy is my favorite character in season 2. I still have 3 episodes left to watch but I'm intrigued to find out who he is and why he's there.

    I had this who9le other backstory for Billy in my mind that never played out. I suppose it still could in the next season...


    Maybe I'm way off base with all that...

    I LOVE the intro btw. Blatant throwback to John Carpenter. Kind of makes me miss the 80's though.

    so as not to be chauvinistic/misogynistic, we're not talking about how super hot Mike's mum is yeah? That's the reason we're not doing that?

    Steve, Dustin and Hopper were by far the best characters this season.

    I like the dynamic between Steve and Dustin. I really hope they build on that next season.

    I find it strange that I'm so fascinated by the Billy character.


    I'm on the Winona Ryder bandwagon, think she's way more interesting than most of the other cast. Here's my rankings of favorite characters:

    1. Billy
    2. Joyce
    3. Steve
    4. Jonathan
    5. Lucas

    To be fair, it's not like his father didn't have a reason to be pissed. All he did was make his son (who lost his step sister for fuck's sake) cancel his date and find her. Yes his father seemed like an asshole with the way he went about it but if Billy didn't talk back and lose his sister then it wouldn't have happened.

    Yeah can’t wait for next season and develop Billy and his dad further. Also Lucas and Max I was 50/50 on there storyline wasn’t feeling it at first. I wanted more Lucas & Dustin duo together.

    sort of felt like Dustin deserved to get with Max, he seemed like he was more enthusiastic about her from the jump, more ambitious about getting her into their group. Lucas just happened to be the one to spill the beans to her first about everything from season 1. but I get why they let Lucas have her. Dustin's scenes at the dance were pulled off well because he's such a funny dork, couldn't have really done it the other way where Lucas was the odd man out.

    Finished season 2 tonight. It lost me half-way through and I didn't go back to it for a week. Not that it wasn't good, but it just didn't have that momentum that the first season had where you wanted to see the next episode right away. It picked up again at the end, though the climax wasn't anything to write home about. The first season had Steve and Eleven saving the day in their respective circumstances which was perfect. The final shot seemed to suggest that nothing had really changed since the start of the season - rather it was just averted. But the dance scene was perfect.

    I think most people felt that. But the way it played out surely means he'll eventually get with her in the end. Too early for it to happen now.

    It feels to me like Nancy and Mike got hardly any lines of dialogue in the last half of Season Two. Anyone else?

    Certain characters got downgraded this season. Mike. Nancy, Johnathen and Joyce seemed to be almost non-factors. I get Mike was brooding over Eleven, but Joyce should have been more vocal this season.

    I thought Joyce played a big role. Also, there were a couple episodes that focused on Jon and Nancy. A little confused by your posted to be honest. Yes, Mike played a smaller role.

    I'm with Pure Player here. 9 episodes. I felt Joyce and Nancy played huge roles.
