We watched the first three episodes of Stranger Things season 2 last night and hope to wrap it up over the weekend. So far it’s really good - it has to be to keep me watching more than two episodes in one sitting.
I was a huge fan of S1, with it probably being the best thing I saw last year even though I am younger than the child characters so don’t have the same attachment to the pop culture relics as other fans (nor have I seen the films it lovingly borrowed from (Goonies, ET, Stand By Me, It)).
I’m impressed so far by the whole thing; it’s a more than solid sequel and the child actors don’t appear to have aged that much (they must have started filming soon after the first season) - I was worried we’d have a Bran Stark effect; but no - they all still look and sound like little kids.
We also wrapped up Mindhunter the other night - what a piece of work. I absolutely loved it and would put it up there with Stranger Things and Big Little Lies. So well done, each episode left me wanting more and I’m actually annoyed that it won’t be back for a year. Highly recommended, but not for the squeamish.
