Millie Bobby Brown(Love her name!) is actually 14 years old and younger than the others so she could still be young enough. Maybe they will make her look older?

First season was great, second was "meh", wont watch third and beyond. Way overhyped series.

On the third episode of James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction titled Monsters, one of the things they talk about is Stranger Things.
Both James Cameron and Steven Spielberg are fans and praise it.
The creators of Stranger Things talk about the movies that influenced their writing of the show. Winona Ryder's character was directly influenced by Richard Dreyfuss' character from Close Encounters, they said the Christmas lights are her mashed potatoes.

Ha ha That makes sense! Close Encounters is one of my top 10 favorite movies. No wonder I was attracted to Stranger Things!

I have mixed emotions about Cary Elwes playing the mayor. I was really hoping Corbin Bernsen would get the role. I even told him on Facebook he would be perfect for that. As I see some shades of Arnie Becker in him.

My mother-in-law and wife pretending they're on Stranger Things. My mother-in-law stole Dustin's hat.

"Stranger Things" Books Set for Fall Debut from Penguin Random House
by Greg Evans
June 8, 2018



Penguin Random House will partner with Netflix on a worldwide publishing deal for books based on the critically acclaimed Netflix original series "Stranger Things", Deadline has learned.

The first two titles, set for a release this fall, will be a behind-the-scenes companion book and a hardcover gift book for young readers. The companion book will be titled Stranger Things: World Turned Upside Down: The Official Behind-The-Scenes Companion.

The as-yet-untitled gift book will offer “advice, wisdom, and warnings from the Stranger Things world,” says the publisher.




Those two books will be followed next spring by a "Stranger Things" prequel novel, written by author Gwenda Bond, about Eleven’s mother and the MKUltra program.

Additional titles for both adults and young readers will arrive later in 2019.




The "Stranger Things" books will initially release under the U.S. and British Commonwealth publishing teams of Del Rey Books, Random House Children’s Books, Cornerstone Publishing, and Penguin Random House Children’s UK, with additional territories and imprints to follow.

Audiobook editions will be published by Penguin Random House Audio.

I just binge-watched seasons one and two of Stranger Things this week, after it was recommended to me by a friend. I definitely enjoyed both seasons, although I think season one was better, and had fewer plot holes. Still, both seasons held my interest, and I look forward to watching season three next year.

I definitely like the '80s feel of the show, which feels very authentic: from the Pee Chee folders and Trapper Keepers to the crappy way everyone treats each other.

I agree. Binge watching is the way to watch the series. It keeps the flow going and you can keep the story moving along. I watched it the first time in segments and got quite confused but the second and third times I watched several episodes together. The parts that I got lost in the first time gelled by watching it straight through. I agree that season 1 was better but I did enjoy both. I hope that the Duffer Brothers can keep it going as well and not get too "techy". As far as I know the series will have jumped a couple of years because the kids were growing up and not looking their ages. So I wonder how that will be carried through. I'm so looking forward to season 3 (2019).

I can definitely see getting confused if you're watching it in segments. It's definitely binge-worthy.

I don't mind them flashing forward a couple of years, as long as they explain what happened during the years we didn't see, preferably via flashbacks, like they did during the first few episodes of season two, where they explained what happened after season one. I probably will miss the kids biking everywhere, unless they keep that during the high school years.

This series is a lot of wish fulfillment, for me: it's how I'd like to remember the 1980s (monsters excluded), rather than how the 1980s really were. And that's one reason I enjoy it so much!
