Finished S3 last night - really enjoyed it overall. Felt like it sagged in the middle a touch, but the final 2 episodes were really good.

My wife cried her eyes out when Hopper "died" (I don't think he's dead, and I don't think he's the American in the gulag), I just couldn't help but think that all of these kids are going to be seriously strawberry floated up when they're older.

Product placement was fine, and if stuff like that bothers you in a show set in a particular time period then you're a weirdo that probably enjoys New Coke :dread:

I didn’t even consider it was product placement at be time. In retrospect, it’s obvious, but at the time it just felt like another part of the 80s theme.

And all the references to brands were done in a humorous way in my opinion. The New Coke bit just felt like a nod to a famous moment in the 80s.

It was also released in 1985, when Season 3 is set and released that summer so it was bang on time wise.
