I enjoy the second season of Stranger Things a whole lot less than the first one. Not sure if it is because it actually is a worse season, or because my standards tv shows have been raised by West World and Twin Peaks this year, or because it was a novelty that just worked once.

@MrHenko I am finding the same, the episode away in the city was particularly poor.

@johnjohnston I haven’t gotten to that episode yet. Finished #5 (Dig Dug) two days ago.
So what do you think, is it actually worse than season one or was it just a novelty that only worked once?

@MrHenko A bit of both, I though ep 6 showed some improvement a least from the excitement pov, but 7 was disappointing: plot a bit silly & characters uninteresting. The children are older & perhaps this makes you expect better acting. I am still going to finish it next weekend.

@johnjohnston I’m looking forward to ep 6 in that case.
The acting of the kids don’t bother me but they don’t impress me like they did in the first season either. Especially Eleven was really good the first season.
I’ll keep watching it as well. I’ve been looking forward to season two for too long to abandon it now. :)

@MrHenko I think Eleven has more to do this season which shows the acting up a bit.

@johnjohnston This showing the acting up mean a good thing or a bad thing? (Sorry, haven’t heard that phrase before.)

@MrHenko sorry, I meant that the new season is asking a lot more from the actor playing Eleven. She has to do a bit more than in season one. In season 1 her look did a lot.

@johnjohnston No need to apologize. And you are probably right regarding Eleven. Haven’t seen anymore episodes yet but I might get around to it tonight.
