Episode 7 just seemed a bit pointless.  Some good music and eleven as a punk was good.  But in terms of the whole series it could have quite easily not been there or condensed into the episodes.

Plus the girl that played Roman was dreadful.

Overall really good season though Quite Good

I got the impression episode 7 was to allow a set up/introduction for the third season and that’s why it felt like it was just jammed in there

Timing was terrible when you consider the end of 6 then going to that, that amplified the negative impact of it

Ye Groot, potentially could be right (about it being a introduction).  To be honest I don't think I'd be that into it if that's the route they go down for season 3, but can see why they would at the same time.

Thought the first series was shit tbh, I fell asleep watching one night and got woken up by some daft screaming or alarm or something on it so it just pissed me off and never bothered with it again.

Just felt there was a little more going on and probably due to the budget, the 80’s references were good like the arcade, ghostbusters dress up, Max’s brother blasting early metallica, the scene at the end when the wee curly haired lad gets a his hair done like Steve Laugh

Just finished it there.

Really enjoyed it. Agreed episode 7 was nonsense though.

Not sure where it can go with a third season unless as Groot says they explore all the kids that were taken.

Disappointed there wasn’t a Mrs Robison scene with Nancy’s Mum GodIsGod

I think there is plenty mileage for season three, discovering the other kids from the Hawkins Laboratory, the girl in episode 7 was 008 and eleven was er... 011 so I reckon one of the other kids might come and wreck havoc, can’t see them persisting with the other dimension theme, maybe a X-Files paranormal /Area 51 ufo type theme?
