Stranger Things 3

Who's watching? We're through 6 of 8 episodes. It's as good as ever!

Btw, the dark scenes, with El doing her thing... in a darkened room, on OLED? Wow, so cool! B)

    The first season was a disappointment. The second was even worse. How does the third compare to the first two?

    First season for me was best. Consistently less each sequel.

    Tough crowd! 🤣 You know, we're enjoying it, not critiquing it!

    Lol. I do enjoy it regardless. But season one was epic.

    Agreed. It was fresh and fun. Hard to be fresh over and over again, but still fun. 👍

    I love stranger things! We're through episode 7 and planning to finish the season tonight.

    For my taste, they nailed the perfect combo of intense, funny, nostalgic and even a little cheesy at times. It's not a perfect show for highbrow critical writing, and it requires buying into the scifi aspect. But when it comes to fun blockbuster style TV shows, I think they sit right at the top.

    I loved the first two seasons so much that I'm actually hesitant to watch the third.

    I liked the third season more than the second. Dunno why but I wasn't a fan of season 2.

    Season 3 started out slow for me. Not a huge fan till around halfway through, then I enjoyed it, maybe a little better than Season 2.
