I was able to watch Season 3 of Stranger Things this weekend. I was not disappointed. The first couple of episodes were a little bit slow for me, but once I got past those it was rolling and riveting. In my opinion it was filled with 80’s references, Sci-Fi nostalgia, and filled with a lot of emotion that brought me back to my childhood and growing up in the 80’s.
I enjoyed the story and the acting, all round I thought it was suspenseful and really moved me with the whole building friendships part of things. They also tossed in some cool movie nods with Back to the Future and The Never Ending Story. Both of these were huge in the 80’s and I remember watching them both for the first time but on TV not in theaters.
Malls were also a big aspect in the 80’s, and the mall scenes also brought back some good memories, even though I grew up in a small town, it brought back memories when we would drive 60 miles to get to the nearest mall. It was always cool shopping at some of the featured stores in the series. All and all it was a great experience for me, can’t wait for season 4.
