IMO the lowest point for me had to have been that one solo episode with Eleven. I don't think there's many people who liked that episode and I constantly see it being singled out (and not in a good way) when people talk about or review Season 2 as a whole.

It was an episode of Heroes.

As a whole, I found the season to be ok. I thought the first season was just somewhat better than ok, but with a very strong cast and a few cliches turned on their head. This season undid some of the latter, but still had the strong cast. The strange things, though, not so great.

I would have preferred them to do an anthology of different horrors in different government facilities, and maybe just do a spin off following these kids being kids without some stupid shadow monster from Lost chasing them.

I liked Stranger Things 2. Not quite as good as the first season, but still a highly tense and very enjoyable show. Very much looking forward to a third season (please, Netflix?)

It wasn't that Bob died, it was that they did it with the most lame and cheesy horror trope of all time, the ol' phew, I'm safe, oh wait no I'm not AHHHHHHHHH! It wasn't emotional, you saw it coming a mile away, and it represented the lowest point of the season, quality-wise, IMO.

The Duffy brothers stated that the ending for the story would come after season 3.
I liked the second season so much that i rewatched the 1st just to stretch it out, still have s02e09 left to watch.

Yeah, loved ST S1. Haven't had time to start watching S2. Really looking forward to it.

Yeah, ST definitely hits all the right nostalgia buttons. I like Dustin the best with his constant D&D references and his 'sonofabitch' everything. That was the best with Mike's dad, "Son of a bitch, you're really no help at all, you know that?"

Secret: And that scene with Billy and Mike's mom was awesome. Maybe he'll plough her next season. I have the sneaking suspicion that he's gay and hot for Steve though.

I thought the Duffer brothers had it planned out until end of season 4, which is when they said it would end. (Plus something about how old the kids would be at that point)

Burrito,

(secret)

Yes, but nobody would have given a shit if Billy died. Bob dying was perfect. I mean, I was like NOOOOOO! BOB! but people CARED that Bob died. I liked Bob.

Agreed but there was one thing that bothered me (spoilers ahead)...THOSE MOTHERFUCKERS KILLED OFF BOB! Bob was a REALLY likable character. They should have killed off Billy. Fuck that guy.
