Re: Stranger Things Season 3

Loved season 3. Loved it. They improved on almost every facet from Season 2 (i liked Season 2 as well). However, the show must end season 4 imo. There's really not much more else to squeeze out from this storyline. Also, I believe they could've even ended this series perfectly this season with that amazing last episode. Oh well.

Re: Stranger Things Season 3

Steve and Robin was my favorite part of the season and at the end I wanted Robin to get the Billy death, only about a thousand times more painful and gruesome. Fuck these writers for that swerve. Makes M Night Shamalamadingdong look like a genius.

This might sound hyperbolic, but it just may have killed the season for me.

There was a lot of shakiness with the series before that point, but it was still solid and also had the benefit of Mr. Wheeler parading around in a swimsuit, but then the reveal came and it felt like a giant turd landed on my face.

I actually said "oh fuck you!" to the television screen

It didn't help matters that everything starting tumbling downhill after that point.


edit: and before anyone flips out, the problem wasn't Robin being gay, the problem was presenting a character and a story-arch and then throwing it out the window for a random swerve with no set up, logic, or place in the story, simply to deliver a ham-fisted political message.

Re: Stranger Things Season 3

The Robin twist didn't kill the season for me, but it did make me roll my eyes.

This is heightened by the fact that I literally hated every other couple on the show this season. Literally all of them. They really leaned into the whole idea that friction leads to passion because all of the paired off ships were just arguing the entire time and it got super obnoxious.

Then you had this one pairing that started off with playful sniping at each other, then developed more and more chemistry with each other as the season progressed and they were actually cute together.

And then YOINK! No happy couple here!

If I didn't hate all the other couples, this wouldn't have bothered me that much, but after spending most of the season groaning every time Nancy and Johnathan were on screen, or yelling for Joyce and Hopper to shut up, or yelling for Max to leave Lucas alone, or begging for Mike and Elle to just stop, it felt like I was being trolled when it turned out the one couple I kind of cared about couldn't happen.

Thanks show. You got me, lol.

Re: Stranger Things Season 3

Robin and Steve as buddies is better for this show. I mean we could've had Steve and Robin leaning in to kiss in slow motion to a Tears for Fears/Simple Minds/Peter Gabriel/etc song but we've seen that movie.

I don't see Robin as a political agenda but I do agree her classroom story was written in a contrived way to swerve later. Whatever though, I like the character and the actress.
