It was good. The aruging between Hopper and Joyce was a bit too sitcom-y. Also the 'performance' Dustin had to put on for his girlfriend during a tense moment was kinda cringe.

Thought it was great, even if I do back up the two critiques about Hop and Joyce and Dustin's serenade.

I'm only three episodes in to season 3 but why is Dustin still missing his front teeth? They've been missing for like 2 yrs now.

He has a medical condition. He explained it in season 1.

Thought it was excellent in all of its exquisite 80s detail. Loved the Waldenbooks at the mall. I'm a sucker for nostalgia and I'm eating it up. I could almost smell my hometown mall from the 80's.

I'm not through the whole season yet so I can't comment on the story, but I've enjoyed it so far.

I binge watched it all on Saturday. Good stuff.

Glad there wasn't a throwaway episode like S2E7 where El hunts down her sister.

The strobing warning was legit. Husband had to narrate a few scenes for me. And I was all for the never-ending story scene. I loved it in all of its cheesy, cringy glory.

Really glad they took a minute in the final episode to point out how absurd all the crazy shit that happened in Hawkins, even if it was just poking fun with the little tv show clips of the investigation.

I was really having a good time watching this season and then the last episode had to try to attack my feels.

*** SPOILER ****



You've been warned.

The song("Heroes"), Hopper, the letter, the leave the door open 3 inches, ugh, that was so well done.

We probably have until Christmas 2020 to debate who the "American" actually is. They definitely want the audience to think it's Hopper but I think it makes more sense for him to be trapped in the Upside Down than stuck in a Russian cell.



**** END SPOILER ****

Dr. Brenner is the American, Hopper escaped to the upside-down through the 3-inch crack in the door... (maybe)

I loved all the old logos/signs/wrappers/product-placement. Really enjoyed the show. I thought they went a little over-board on the cheesiness of Hopper and Joyce's bickering... they seemed to make Hopper a lot goofier than he was in the earlier seasons (was that because of the old movie trope that all parents are goofy, and Hopper has only recently become a parent again?)

The thing that bothered me about Hopper's character wasn't the silly bickering, it was that dude put on weight and seemed out of shape early in the season, and then be turns into a complete/total badass.

Dude was fighting hand-to-hand with The Russian Terminator and he was going up against "the best Russian soldiers" that were there to guard the mall/bunker. I understood him shooting some up, but he was doing pretty damn well with a lot of hand-to-hand combat for a town sheriff.

I also think the kids survived a LOT of huge blows. Fairly certain Eleven, Mike, Max, Nancy, Jonathan, and Steve would all have some fairly serious damage ranging from broken bones to serious concussions.

This show seems to have done the 80's better than some of the movies that came out in the 80's. I mean the mall in season 3 looked more like my hometown mall when I was 7 than the mall in "Chopping Mall." (If you haven't seen that cinematic classic you totally should).

And Hopper's letter was great.

My only beef with the premise of season 3 is that after what took place in Hawkins, I can't believe the government didn't have that city under the tightest surveillance possible in the 80's. I don't see how they would have let someone moving tons and tons of earth for an underground complex go under the radar. Maybe if it was just an ordinary town in middle America, but when you open an interdimensional portal - that kinda thing usually makes a government want to keep tabs on said portal's location.

He might of had a belly, but most of that weight was in his chest and soldiers. I've learned not to fuck with guys like that.

I enjoyed this season. The Russian element just didn't do it for me. That's my only real complaint. All for the Neverending story part. I laughed quite a bit.

I'm with you there.

How much time passed between the hospital incident and the 4th of July celebration? It's like nobody in the town (especially the Mayor) noticed that the hospital became the scene of a bunch of destruction or grisly murders?

Really enjoyed this season, as well as the first two. Normally for a show with a large cast and multiple storylines like this I'll find myself disliking parts of it, but I really like every character and story. Such a good show.

David Harbour has been teasing something on his Instagram page where he changes his profile picture to a different number everyday. The number goes to Murray's fictional voicemail and has a message that says "If this is Joyce, Joyce, thank you for calling, I have been trying to reach ya. I have an update. It's about, well, it's probably best if we speak in person. It's not good or bad, but it's something . . . "

Hated. This. Season.

Pacing, tone, story (which comes from and goes nowhere), acting (on the part of the leads, not their fault, terrible writing) you name it. Saw the whole thing through out of a sense of obligation and a hope that we might actually learn something new, but nope.

The Russians having an incredibly built out base in the middle of America seemed more than far fetched. Yeah yeah yeah I know it's a sci-fi show but come on, got to be limits somewhere.

The 80s nostalgia seemed to be laid on way too thick this time around, felt way too in your face. Possibly my least favorite of the 3 seasons, but still pretty good.

I also found the 80s nostalgia distracting. As someone who remembers the 80s pretty well, it just kept pulling me out of the story.

At one point I actually yelled at the TV to STOP WINKING AT ME, I GET IT, IT'S ANOTHER POP CULTURE REFERENCE.

That's kinda been the show's M.O. since the very beginning.
