If they are going to pull a reveal like that though, they need a plausible explanation (plausible within the realm of the show)It's television, doesn't need to make sense.
Yeah a few lines is all you need. I don't want to make out like it was a major thing for me because I've really enjoyed the whole series. Shame it was only 8 episodes but having said that I'm also glad they didn't pad it out with crap.I thought it was funny, but they didn't need to drag it on for the whole song.
I really liked the swerve that she wasn't interested in Steve.. Very well done and a good surprise away from the obvious storyLoved the addition of the Hawke/Thurman kid. Every time she was on screen she owned.
Also, just finished. How long am I going to have Neverending Story rattling round in my head?
Yep, Billy was pretty much perfect for the role needed. Nailed it.
Hopper is growing his beard out. Maybe for season 4 ? Locked in the room for a while perhaps. First thing Eleven does when regaining her powers to maybe look for him ?
Meh, I thought Hop's character this season was fairly in-line with what he's been up to this point, certainly re: Eleven. He was already struggling with her last season about not being able to go out, rang pretty true that he'd handle her having a boyfriend badly....
Season 3 was a very fun first episode back. 80s nostalgia in full swing and it was great!
-The actor who's playing Billy has buffed up a bit and looks more the part of the quintessential 80s bully now. If his character brings the gorgeous Cara Buono into the show more then I'm happy.
-The threat of the underground continues to ramp up and those sneaky f'n Russians coming into the fold makes things interesting and is a great thing to introduce to the show as Russians were the main antagonist in the Regan-era of movies.
-It's interesting seeing how differently the kids are aging. Mike in particular went from looking 10 in the first season to 16. The rest of the kids only look maybe 2 years older.
-But what have they done to David Harbour? He had great people skills in the first season. He was the voice of reason. Now he's utterly clueless about how to handle dealing with a teenage relationship under his roof? So stupid and not true to the character at all.
-Loving Dustin and his ham radio set-up with that giant antenna out in the open field. You could tell it was gonna be important to the plot and sure enough he's already picking up transmission of those sneaky f'n Russians! Can't wait to see how this plays out!
So overall I liked the first episode. A few things annoyed me, but it's a great set-up and I'm loving falling back into the 80s nostalgia so much. Less 11 and Mike kissy kissy BS and more Mrs Wheeler looking fine and my main man Steve please!
Was pretty sure they said it will be 4 seasons and that's it but I can't find the article now. Guess its possible they're revising that plan anyway considering the show will be the biggest in Netflix's history, pretty insane numbers -> https://www.buzzfeed.com/deliacai/stranger-things-season-3-just-broke-a-huge-record-forI haven't really followed Stranger Things rumours since the last one, but everyone seems certain Season 4 is a thing? I thought it was a 3 season wrap last I'd heard. Pretty disappointing, it could only get worse from here.
I don't think they'll struggle to make a good show, I just hope that the situations don't begin to feel contrived, the first or fourth time around.Was pretty sure they said it will be 4 seasons and that's it but I can't find the article now.

The difference is if Disney had made it, it would have been leaked before the season, there would have been seven articles in the HuffPo and Vanity Fair about it and she would have replaced Steve as the main charachter.If Disney had made the show there'd be an uproar about it!
Yeah another example for mine of what I was talking about with poor editing, was cool/funny but just didn't need to be that long. Although actually, thinking about it now I can kinda let it slide because the whole thing was required for a story reason - Suzie wanting to hear it before she'd tell him Planck's constant. Don't imagine she'd be too happy if Dustin just pulled up after the first bit.I am of that time and still found it extremely cringe. You are not alone.
Haha yep.If Disney had made the show there'd be an uproar about it!
