Stranger Things: Season Two (Netflix) discussion brought to you by Overlord
#36

I liked it! But have to agree with others in that leaning IN to the nostalgia porn facets aren't doing it any favours.



Dat Lovecraft Old One though...

Man, I am one of the first people to be down on 80s nostalgia porn, but for some reason, this show just does it for me. (I'm currently working on a paper about the first season.) That trailer was fantastic.



All in.

I'm already looking forward to the cold, dark October nights on which I'll be binge-watching this. The first season somehow scratched the Stephen King By Way Of Spielberg itch that I didn't even know I had. Really looking forward to more of it.

Yeah, this show is a better Super 8. Does that mean it's good? Ehhhh...

I had a feeling you'd like the "Booger Things" joke.

Season 3 will take place during Christmas of '85 for no other reason than to have a montage of the kids opening their own Nintendo Entertainment System.



Cut to a shot of a monster and BOOM, there's your teaser.

Yeah, that Lovecraftian monster we've seen so far in the trailers is a serious escalation up from the Octodemon.

I hope it kills Steve just because he's Steve.



Fucking Steve.



And just wait for the Stranger Things revival in thirty years. It will take place this year and will prey on our inevitable nostalgia for the Twin Peaks revival.



Meta!

You mean my non-existent teasers for Season 3 and the revival?



I suppose not.

I've come around on Steve.  He's a lovable douchebag.  He's a douchebag who means well.



He's OUR Douchebag.

So much this. Steve's arc in season one is one of my favorite parts.

Just that one shot of Steve in the trailer partying with those big shades on at night.



CLASSIC STEVE!

Any time I'm having a bad day, I just remind myself that Barb is dead. My mood instantly improves.

Steve can go fart in a phone booth. And also die horribly.

And here I thought we were allies. Partners. Brothers. Friends with unbearable sexual tension.





All of that is gone, now.

You guys just hate it when the douchebag who stole your lunch money is portrayed as a human being, don't you?

Barb is fine.  She's a fine side character who became a stupid annoying meme because of her cruel death, and now she's been nominated for an Emmy for best dramatic Actress or some nonsense?  ENOUGH



ENOUGH OF BARB



Moar Steve.

Reply

Yeah, a great meal for the boring looking monster that ate her.



(Thank you, Monster. And you're not boring looking.)

Barb and Steve OTP.



You know who I fucking hate though?



Jonathan.

Steve didn't have to get him that camera! But he did!

No it's the 80's not 2017.  So it's not creepy.  It's romantic and sensitive.



I can't believe I'm coming to this guys defense, but from what I remember he didn't go out with the intention to stalk.  He just saw her there and took her photo when he was monster hunting.



Tobey Peter Parker does the same damn thing nobody says SHIT about that!
