  • Watched the first episode last night and thought it was decent. I hope Ivy gets a nice royalty check for Teenage Werewolf and Fever working their way onto the soundtrack.

        Kind of hoping it doesn't top Squid Game. I probably prefer Stranger Things but there's just something about an horrific Korean blood fest being the most watched show ever that makes me happy.

        • Mild spoiler I guess?


          It was kind of cool seeing Robert Englund show up in this.

            • I'm still enjoying this season. We're on the last episode of season four that's posted. We'll be done just in time for the last two episodes to be available.

              • No spoilers. That was a damned good season of tv. Maybe the best of the year though Ozark was amazing, that ones hard to top and I assume these are just pretenders to the throne with Succession coming up shortly anyway. That last 2 hour 20 episode was a bit of an endurance test, frankly a little too much of a good thing. It got a touch Marvel there for a bit with people throwing each other into walls.

                Interesting spot to leave it on. Not too sure how they pick it up from there particularly given there's talk of a time jump between seasons to account for the aging teens.

                • We have the last episode to to... and it's two and a half hours? haha. The episodes this season definitely were longer than what came before. I've been enjoying it so no complaining but each one is movie length.

                    Agreed, the finale could have been shorter and I wasn't happy with how one character's story arc finished but overall, I think this was the best season since the first one.

                    There's also a spinoff in the works.

                      Glad to read this part in that article: “I’ve read these rumors that there’s going be an Eleven spinoff, that there’s going be a Steve and Dustin spinoff or that it’s another number. That’s not interesting to me because we’ve done all that. We’ve spent I don’t know how many hours exploring all of that. So it’s very different." Well that's a good thing. I was worried it was all going to be about 8. We did a rewatch of the whole thing recently and that section is season 2 looks even weirder now it seems there's no payoff than it did back then.

                      The rewatch confirmed my initial impressions. Season 1 is a great start but really lives on the nostalgia in a way that's more cloying than the rest of the seasons. Winona's crying a lot and that's not fun. It all feels a bit serious. Season 2 is a step up. Steve becoming a major player and teaming up with Dustin was a masterstroke. It's the Aliens of the series. Bigger and with more killable monsters. Huge soft spot for Season 3. May be the best season. I love the lighter tone on this one. Loses some points for how ridiculously easy it is to move around that super secret Russian base. Season 4 could have gone full parody but instead takes a welcome u-turn into horror. Beginning to wallow in itself a bit maybe but they've kind of earnt it at this point so I'll allow it.
