Stranger Things first appeared in our lives back in 2016 with its phenomenal first season, followed by a less amazing yet still entertaining Season 2. I was pretty excited for the third adventure with one of the best (if not the best) young ensemble casts ever. The acting in this show is unbelievable, even more when considering the age of most of the kids (14-17). Millie Bobby Brown is 15-years-old! Fifteen! Weirdly, the show will only be eligible for next ye... read the rest.
I came to the latest season of Stranger Things with real reservations. I felt the last season was simply a recycling of what had gone before and wondered, if this wasn't another case of, "rinse and repeat."
Well, thankfully, that's not the case. The latest season adds new material and fleshes out the overall back story. Its suitably creepy too, with yet more 80's style nostalgia and one of my favourite Kate Bush songs.
Everything is well placed, great sets, great acting and thrills that keep you coming back. Its sets things up beautifully for the next season too.
I don't remember Africa being that popular in the 80s... do you? I mean, those of you who are old enough to actually remember the 80s. It was a hit, I remember that. I remember my mom liked it... my MOTHER liked it, which is sort of the population that Toto catered to, but I don't remember Africa having that much play on any station that anyone openly listened to until... what 2014 when Family Guy popularized it again because one of their writers played too much GTA in the early naughts.
Anyway, this show comes with a really important lesson.
