The next Stranger Things is going to be political.
“We are united, in that we are all human beings and we are all together on this horrible, painful, joyous, exciting, and mysterious ride that is being alive. Now, as we act in the continuing narrative of Stranger Things, we 1983 Midwesterners will repel bullies,” Harbour said, bringing down the house as the crowd rose for a standing ovation. “We will shelter freaks and outcasts — those who have no hope. We will get past the lies. We will hunt monsters. And when we are at a loss amidst the hypocrisy and casual violence of certain individuals and institutions, we will, as per Chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face when they seek to destroy the meek and the disenfranchised and the marginalized. And we will do it all with soul, with heart, and with joy. We thank you for this responsibility.”

Second episode is even better!! :D

I like the way it ends too, you'll probably want to watch the credits and not just let Netflix skip immediately to the next episode.

Funny, looking for that, I saw a recent interview with him and Lance Hendricks. They both joke that he has not changed.

I KNEW the doctor looked familiar, but I couldn't place him. There are so many other actors that vanished after the 80s. I'll be looking for more. :hyper:

How the hell did Sean Astin land a make-out scene with Winona Rider? Must have been a life-long dream come true. He's really let himself go after LOTR. Looks like a potato.

Eleven is back. Can you believe it? How? How could this possibly be? It's as if the producers held a gun to the writers heads and said find a way to bring her back, and give her a ratty 80's style mop of tangled curly hair, and teach her how to speak english or I'll fire at you.

Oh, the painstaking details they went through to re-create 1984! My brain was having a Nostalgia mellt-down. The cars, the mustaches on the copes and teacher, the clothes, the drab style of the houses and buildings, the phones, holy shit they even had the fucking horrible arcade game Dragon's Lair. I hated that stupid game. It was the first arcade game that took dollar bills as I recall.

And then I wake up to this:

Sean Astin always looked like a potato.

But who did not want to land Winona, even when she was stealing clothes and baying at the Moon?

Samwise.

He was also the leader of the Goonies.

Not long after the Goonies, Winona Ryder was kicking off her career in Bettlejuice
