Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing the second season of Stranger Things!
-A: Good story with characters that got better and a slow plot line
Stranger Things is better probably the most talked about show in the world, beating Game of Thrones. I watched season one last year and it was probably one of the best things I had watched that year. I did not do a review for season one because I didn’t really feel like it but I don’t know I have a lot of opinions on season two. Honestly it was fine and nice and I loved it but I loved the first season so much more then I did this season as this season was slow and there were a couple episode were it makes you think these didn’t really need to be here. Like season one there weren’t any filler episodes and every episode added more to the story but that wasn’t the case with season two. There were a couple episodes that were just there and they do have so impact but not a lot.
This season was great though because once it picks up it picks up hard and fast and it gives so much. I enjoyed the characters all the same and I loved them all some much expect for Max’s brother. So we met a new girl named Max who I’ll talk about a later and she has this really rude and annoying brother and I hated him. He was just a dick and didn’t really do anything to the story expect be a real dick. I guess that he was just through as an obstacle for Max to overcome. I liked Max, she’s a great character and she’s cool and fun, but I didn’t like how they used her to cause trouble with the group. Eleven did cause trouble but it was more like is she bad or not and with Max it was more like ‘I like her’ ‘No I like her’ ‘I hate her’ which isn’t what I wanted for this character. I mean her and Lucas are cute through. I didn’t like how her and Eleven got one scene together and El just brushes her off. I know that she was jealous because she saw Max and Mike hanging out and got jealous but come on! You have two great female characters and that’s how the one scene they are in with each other goes down!
This should be no surprise because everyone has said this but Steve Harrington I love him! Talk about that character development! He was kind of a doche the first season but became nice at the end and he is babysitter of the year. I loved him and his relationship with the boys. It was so great! I loved Nancy and Jonathan and how their relationship grew this season which I saw coming but it was really nice to see. Let’s talk about the episode the Lost Sister because everyone has different opinions on it. Look I see why it’s need and I understand why people do not like it and I’m kind of in the middle. It adds more to the story and gives us back story but it also gives me characters that I don’t really care about. Like I love her sister and we could learn more about her but everything else is okay. I like how Eleven decided that she did to go back. I loved Bob but for most of the time I thought he was a bad guy but he wasn’t and I was really sad. Will was amazing this season and I just wanted to protect him!
Look this season isn’t as great as season one but it’s still a great season and even though the ending wasn’t as thrilling as the first season. We do have more to continue on for the next time. Stranger Things season two was great. I expected it better and I’m excited for season three which won’t come out for a while. Have you guys watched this show? What did you think of it?
