Just finished, not as good as season one, cringe factor is high in some spots, but super fun, especially the last episode.
Hopefully they let this be it for the Hawkins crew despite loose threads possibly dangling from everyone's favorite second season installment (kidding), as this was just as perfect a swan song as Supernatural's season five finale....but I fear, just like that show, they'll milk it instead of moving onto another universe or at least taking the story to Russia like they possibly were hinting with that last scene. I was fully expecting a stinger revealing Hopper jumped through the portal somehow and was trapped in the Upside Down., thank god they didn't go that route....but I wouldn't rule it out if they announce more of these.
Steve was great. Robin was great. Erica was great. The effects were great. Harbour in action mode was great. If WB hadn't diluted the franchise with the tv series, he would make a great Roger Murtaugh in a re-imagined and race flipped Lethal Weapon, or could easily pull off a John McClane-like role, dude should be a big thing. I wouldn't mind seeing him as Sully in Tom Holland's Uncharted film.
Also, I said it the last two times, and I'll say it again, it's a shame this was a tv series. Sure, it's great to binge and all, but there's so many scenes I would've loved to experienced with an audience. I know it's against their business model, but Netflix should spin this cast off into theatrically released films if they must continue, and take the show elsewhere. That or at least the Duffer Bros....no matter how many things they rip off, take their nostalgia act to the silver screen with something else.
