    Of course there is. Half way through S2. Not as good as S1. Kinda slow. I'm enjoying it enough though.

    season 1 set pretty high standards for season 2. almost impossible to meet or exceed. one bit of the story should have waited, in my opinion. the story with the mom. think season 2 would have been better without that. also the opening with 8 could have been tacked onto the end. think that would have been better.

    other than that i enjoyed season 2. my only complaint about it is with the music. one of the big surprises of season 1 for me was hearing Tangerine Dream, Joy Division, New Order pop up. anyway, was really looking forward to hearing the music during season 2. Tangerine Dream did pop up and so did Fad Gadget but the rest of it was big radiofriendly stuff which is cool but left me kinda disappointed

    S2 Episode 8 - WTF is this, X-Men meets Suburbia?

    They lost me with this one. I'll finish the season and hope it gets better. First 7 episodes were good.

    8 was a stupid mess. And it's not like they couldnj't have cut all of that shit out, it doesn't affect the storyline even slightly.

    I thought it was Episode 7 that everyone hated.

    I didn't mind it. It showed El cared about her life back with Mike and Hopper more than her need for revenge. It makes her a bit more "human." Not my favorite episode but I didn't mind it.

    And it was episode 7.

    How can you guys be so wrong?! Season 2 was way better than season 1 and I liked season 1 a lot. There's quite a few complaints about the pacing but season 1 was far from a sprightly show. The first half of that series in particular was glacial. With this I really felt like we always getting new stuff. Which is a good trick considering I'd figured it had already shown its hand in season 1. Episode 7 is admittedly a disaster. I actually quite like the idea of that episode but the execution is off. All the new characters are dreadful. I'm guessing it's important for the next series though to be introducing the idea of other psychics.

    Has to be said, brilliant cast on this. The cop is fucking great but the chubby kid with the curls is a superstar. Career prediction: after Stranger Things wraps up we don't here from him for 15 years. Then one day you're watching an action flick and our hero pulls himself from some recently exploded scenery, rises slowly into frame like the hero he is, fairly glistening with maschismo and unbridled male sexuality... and the person next to you will turn to you and say: "You know that's the chubby kid from Stranger Things?"
