A General Discussion about the 2nd Season

 

Season 1 Discussion begins here: http://forums.atari.io/index.php/topic/2276-stranger-things-chapter-one-the-vanishing-of-will-byers/page-1

 

 

 

Stranger Things 2 just dropped on Netflix and it's going to be a wild ride! Last year we posted episode-by-episode recaps of the show and dove into the deep end with lengthy discussions. For Stranger Things 2 I think it will be fine to keep the discussion to one thread so long as we're all mindful about spoilers. Who here will be watching Stranger Things 2?

We have guests this weekend but I can't wait to watch it. We all really enjoyed it last year!

Does anyone know how many episodes there are in season 2?  I think one of the big allures of season 1 was that it was only 8 episodes.  Like NFL football games...every one counted.  Plus it wasn't a huge time commitment.  It really felt like an extended movie with no fluff.

Looks like 9 episodes in season 2.  PERFECT!

It turns out that our house guests are fans too! We watched the first episode "MADMAX" after dinner. There are some really great 80s arcade scenes. There was also an Atari mention. :)

It was great. But do games like Dig Dug allow 6 character high scores?

We finished this week. The consensus at our house is that it was a fine addition to the series. I really hate Billy though. Not sure why they needed to add another bad ass high school kid. Maybe as a foil for Steve?

Looking forward to starting it soon, got all the episodes on a stick to play on our smart TV. A few weeks back our relatives visited and left us with a new SHARP 43' 4K TV. Though it was really unexpected I gotta admit even watching YouTube on this thing has been cool.

4K is my next purchase. I have the Xbox One S, which will play 4k Blu Rays & Netflix, but the next challenge would be trying not to upgrade to the Xbox One X & gaming in 4 K.

Finished this a couple days ago (kind of late) as I was busy with Super Mario Odyssey.  A worthy season but binge watching these shows feels ridiculous since it will be another year for another few 'lost' hours.  Binging through all of Game of Thrones a couple months ago was even more painful...

I'm an old fart I guess. I can only watch 1 or 2 in a sitting.

I'm trying to savor it as best I can. We have two left.

It's definitely worth a rewatch though, along with S1. I'll save that for the spring or summer.
