TVinsider (tv guide) called it a “Cheerfully cornball homage to early Stephen King -think Firestarter, It, Stand By Me, and Spielbergian odes to childhood, like E.T. and most notably The Goonies.” If you have seen some of the movies as many times as I have, then you will catch certain scenes that will remind you of a scene from one of those movies.
November 6, 1983 is where we begin our story, in the Small town of Hawkins, Indiana where our young heroes reside in various types of families, go through the usual school age fare of being bullied, first kisses and so on, and ‘The party’ playing Dungeons and Dragons in the basement for 10 hours! Their D&D game goes from role playing, to reality when some creepy creeper escapes from the local research lab taking Will.
Wynonna Ryder plays the vanished boy’s mother, and I swear every time I see her I swear Christian Slater is going to pop his head through a door and blow the place up (like in Heathers) or Beetlejuice will show up.
Eleven played my Millie Bobby Brown is intense and I wouldn’t be surprised that some of those nose bleeds were real just from the extreme stare down when using her powers.
This season is not only a mystery but the ongoing story and emotions of a mother being pushed to her limits.
The Vanishing of Will Byers“
“The Weirdo on Maple Street“ WTF pool scene and something I swear came out of pan’s Labyrinth
“Holly, Jolly” Now ‘I’ve seen it all… an Xmas light Ouija board on the wall! Not sure who should be more offended The spirits or the religious.
“The Body” NICE payback after the assembly. If only all of us could get that power once a school year! I give a thumbs up to the make up or FX dept. for the work done on ‘Will’
RIDDLE: So when is a body NOT a body? When it’s plush
Coming across this, I couldn’t help but laugh.
Halloween time and I’m ashamed I didn’t wait to watch this until around that time. (But then I usually have an over abundance to watch during fall tv season, but then a lot of my must watch or watch on demand has been canceled and 2 shows have a recasting)
In the previous I noticed that Lucas and Mike or Dustin have an argument I swear once an episode. I think this foretells when something is about to happen, is some sort of clue or they mention a clue during this time as it always seems they also end up stopped short.
This season we have a handful of new faces added to the cast 2 of which are the new kids at school. Will has been going for PTSD counseling (I think that’s what it was) He’s experiencing some after effects of being in the upside down world. Is he still there, or is something from there in him? Will is also having nightmares or are they really premonitions of a sort from the other side. Meanwhile Dustin’s teeth have grown in and has found a mysterious pet. That kid is just adorable but I’m getting sick of those damn Fios commercials , speaking o which I got that shirt with the ‘space cats’ he wears in one of them. (Everyone else seems to like it too. When I wear it I get quite a few people telling me they like it.)
