I was off work today so I may have finished this in one sitting. Loved it, thought they could have done with not showing the monster but I suppose it'd be difficult to have a final confrontation with something the audience doesn't see.
I think it'd have been more satisfying if Jonathan, Nancy and Steve had killed the monster alone. Eleven became something of an ultimate weapon that got them out of every bad situation.
Also, I couldn't look passed how skinny Nancy is. I'm a fan of a slender girl but she looks like she'd break.
- What disorder does Dustin have? - What brand of camera does Jonathan Byers use? - When, year and month, is Stranger Things set? - What is the password to enter Castle Byers? - What is Eleven's mum's name?
We got one question wrong, and I'm pretty sure the quizmaster was wrong it that instance (Where do Joyce and Hop eventually find Will?)
Watched this over several nights. strawberry floating brilliant! Loved it all. The setting of it in the 80's was an absolute masterstroke in my opinion! Kept saying to my other half. "I can't believe Winona is in this!" every episode....
Though Netflix did confirm to Deadline sister site TV Line that Winona Ryder (Joyce) and David Harbour (Jim) are set to return, they’re not seen in the photo, which showcases the younger cast. Featured in it are newcomers Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery, along with Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, and Noah Schnapp. Alas, sorry fans, no Shannon Purser, as her character, fan-favorite Barb, has all but been confirmed not to return for season 2. (Barb was killed off, but the show’s creators have been coy about the character’s lasting impact.)
Set to debut TBD on Netflix in 2017, Stranger Things Season 2 is set in the fall of 1982, about a year after the events of season 1.
Absolutely loved this. Thought they nailed the tone, helped by the superb soundtrack and the acting (bar Winona Ryder going too OTT) was top class. Perfectly paced too. Looking forward to a second series but I'm not sure it'll be able to have the same impact.
