    As much as it sucks to wait, I rather them take their time and do it right. So it's fine with me.

    We have a radio station here that loves MC Lars, and they've been giving this track pretty heavy rotation. I think the song picks up as it progresses, especially as it gets into the point where different parties get involved.

    hopefully this means we won't have a complete throwaway episode like we did in season 2

    Yeah, 8 does seem like the magic number. Marvel would do well to take note of that, too (not that it made Defenders into a quality product, but all their other Netflix series would have benefited from leaner seasons).

    I hope the Stranger Things crew learns some more lessons from that second season. It felt to me like it was made​ for kids, not just starring them.

    Stranger Things 3 - Now In Production


    I know folks will call me crazy, but I'm more psyched for Stranger Things 3 than the final season of Game Of Thrones. I know, crazy, right? But I love this show and its characters. An amazing cast.

    Just finished season 2. The same kinds of intentional cultural appropriation on Westworld brought me back to this. Structurally it felt very similar to the first season, but it had enough to keep me glued. I'm glad that they creators have gone back on their stance of adding one more episode to each season, as I think this one may have had too much to it. But I liked episode 7, it could be a good clue as to what the main thrust of what comes next.

    I too liked Bob. But I knew he was dead from the minute he was on screen.

    I won't call you crazy at all. For me, the shows fill two different desires:

    Stranger Things: engrossing story that I enjoy seeing play out
    Game of Thrones: don't follow it; treat each episode as "let's see who dies this time" and laugh at the shocked reactions of the people who follow it religiously.

    I do love Game Of Thrones and think it is a great show, but Stranger Things just takes me to a place in my childhood. It's what JJ Abrams' Super 8 wished it could be (and I enjoyed Super 8 by the way). Stranger Things just hits all the right marks on the movies and stuff I loved growing up as well as experiences while also being something new and original. The casting is stellar and it is all quite relatable. I just love the world of Stranger Things. They could honestly just drop all the sci fi and horror and give us a normal coming of age drama with this cast and I would love it. All those sci fi and horror nods are just a bonus. Stranger Things makes me feel something no other current show or movie can. It brings me back to that awe feeling I had watching stuff as a kid.

    I just got sad thinking about the fact that the cast aren't even really "kids" anymore and that we will never, ever be able to have anything like what you just described with the actors involved. Goddamnit.

    Summer of 2019 seems so far away right now. Sucks that we have to wait longer for Game of Thrones AND Stranger Things...
