    Max scene at the graveyard was the moment that sticks out most for me from the season so far. Was edge of the seat stuff.

    Absolutely thought she was a goner, especially when the debris started falling around her. Thought it was gonna be a so close yet so far moment.

    In the end I was surprised no big character died in that batch of episodes. Thought we were getting that death at the end with Steve or Nancy last to go up the rope and Vecna lingering.

    Think it would have added something extra if one of the big characters died. Make Vecna seem like he actually might win.

    Scene was incredible in the graveyard. Think she’s the star of the show now personally.

    Said it in here before but one of the only but massive things missing from this show is main characters dying. It definitely feels like they’re terrified to kill any of them off.(Hooper was a massive cop out and even his part this series makes it seem like they had no plan what to actual do with him)

    I think someone is dying in the final two episodes getting released in July, I’m sure, and they’ve kept them back so it doesn’t get spoiled for people.

    For your last point I would’ve loved it if he killed Eleven and the rest had to figure out * Vecna and who he was etc.

    Aside from the couple of episodes getting released in July I really don’t see how they get another season out of this storyline without completely dragging it out.

    By the way, if they ever make a spin-off just make it like Clerks and have it just be set in the video shop with Steve, Robin, Dustin and Eddie.

    She was great in Fear Street as well if you’ve not seen that, but I assume you will have :34:

    Sadie who plays Max looks to have her nice long hair shorn, I was a bit * off about that she had great long hair.

    Think I’ve still got the last part to watch.

    Felt quite similar to Stranger Things as well :giggle1:

    Thought I'd ask, is it worth getting back into if I didn't enjoy season 2?

    Season 1 of Stranger Things was absolutely incredible for me, I absolutely loved every minute of it, where-as I struggled to get through Season 2. Can't put my finger on what put me off it, but it just didn't hit the same.

    Didn't watch season 3, but the Season 4 reviews are really, really good.

    Yeah, I love shows or ‘teen slasher’ type movies set in that era.

    Watched this a few years ago and it had a similar vibe. Maybe worth a watch if you’ve not seen it.

    When a group of friends suspect that their neighbour, a police officer, is up to something sinister, they decide to investigate the matter. However, they are met with dangerous consequences.

    Bit of a basic answer but honestly probably better watching it and seeing. It’s still good but it is definitely different.

    Honestly, without spoiling it, I’d rather they’d have kept it as a small town show rather than what it is now but it’s still incredible tele.

    Nah no seen that. Will give it a watch.

    You’ve probably saw it but for a series I thought the German series ‘Dark’ was/is incredible on Netflix and really the only thing I think would be comparable to Stranger Things. Not horror but more teen thriller-ish.

    No seen that show mate but seen it mentioned a few times as the German Stranger Things.

    Think I watched one episode but was put off by the dubbing so didn’t go back to it. I’m more open to dubbed shows now since Squid Game though so will give it another try.

    Honestly watching dubbed and the voice not matching what’s being said just freaks me out man.

    Dubbed over subtitles is disgraceful behaviour.

    Watching this season has made me want to re-watch Dark. Incredible series.

    @HTG I highly recommend giving Stranger Things another go. One of those Netflix originals that actually does live up to the hype, unlike most of the others. I've enjoyed every season but I do remember thinking season 2 was the weakest by a fair amount.

    Season 1, 3 and 4 (so far) are fantastic though.
