Stranger Things (Season 2 - 2017)
4 Stars out of 5


The second season picks up pretty much where we left off, but things are a bit different from Season 1. First off, Will, the boy that was abducted last time around and really didn't have a big role is now trying to adjust to life after his traumatic incident and thus is featured as a more prominent character this time around. The other thing of note is that Eleven (El) is being kept hidden for the majority of Season 2 and that means she is separated from Mike and the rest of the gang. It does serve up a pretty good reunion near the end, which is well worth the wait. I did enjoy this season as a whole. It's not as great as the first season, but there is a lot to like here. The only thing I really didn't like because it really could have been done without is El / Jane's "Sister" story line that was just a waste of time. Also, I thought the writing and acting was painfully bad here. The story is irrelevant because it goes nowhere. Now, if they choose to revisit it in Season 3, they can make something of it moving forward. But for now, I'm left scratching my head and saying "What's the point of this". With that said, I highly recommend Season 2 for sure. It was great to get Sean Astin in on the series. You knew there would be a Goonie's reference somewhere and when you see it, it will leave you with a big goofy grin on your face.
