Geek Genie's very own teenage geek IzzyLFC runs the rule over the Netflix smash hit, Stranger Things Season 2.
After the massive success of Stranger Things Season 1, which I binged watched in 2 nights, Netflix released the second season of this critically acclaimed series. And it did not disappoint, it was brilliant…or should I say terrifyingly brilliant!
After Will returns from the upside down, he still has post-traumatic stress and sees a humongous shadow figure in the upside down. Eleven is alive and living with Hopper in secret, she also finds out more about her past. Mike, Lucas and Dustin find a new member for their crew called Max and Nancy, Steve and Jonathan have to go Demogorgon hunting once again.
- Characters are more likeable such as Steve and Bob Newby
- A new and scarier Monster or Monsters
- Sub-plots in the show, for example how Eleven and Will's lives are completely different from each others
- Eleven and her time with Eight was a whole episode long
- Eleven has to save the day once again
- At times repetitive
My Review and Rating
Other than the death of my favourite character Bob, the show was brilliant and kept me at the edge of my seat. Eleven's past, The Demodogs in the underground tunnels and the party's new member Max kept my interest levels high. Characters such as Steve who I and most people hated in season 1 had become a lot more likeable and the show balances 80's themes, teen life, comedy with thrills and lots and lots of jump scares.
9/10 - "One of TV's best shows today by far!"
