The first season of Stranger Things was an absolute phenomenon that took the world by storm. Now, 15 months later we return to Hawkins for Stranger Things 2.
The Duffer Brothers have brought back all of their key players, but they have made the bold choice to take the story in new directions and not simply duplicate the success of the first season.
What the Duffers have done with Stranger Things 2 is incredible. This show succeeds not because of its nostalgia, rather the incredible execution of the dramatic moments.
In this podcast we discuss our thoughts on Stranger Things 2 including all of the different references we spotted to other films. We also put the “derivative” criticism to bed once and for all.
