With a tighter focus ‘Stranger Things’ season 2 could have been great – as it stands, we’ll have to settle for almost great, and hope the Duffers are planning to make those apparently divergent threads make sense in season 3.
A show that was primarily influenced by the Stephens (King and Spielberg) is layering that nostalgia cake with a frosting of James Cameron. Fans are going to eat it up. [Stranger Things] continues to be a show with an unmistakable style, a deft hand with mood and setting and especially music, and very clever cinematography. The second season steps up the pace gently, without losing its firm grip on the very specifically dated narrative speed of the first season. Stranger Things provides a form of escapism that has nothing to do with alternate dimensions. It invites viewers to indulge in the sweet self-righteousness that can come with getting excluded for being uncool. Stakes are raised, and the series takes a darker, more violent tone. All this is the hallmark of great storytelling, and if you enjoy season 1, you’ll be in for a treat.
