Stranger Things Season 3 was awesome. I didn’t care much for season 2 so I was not too excited for this one but I think it turned out great like the original season.


Nice! Glad I have that to look forward to yet.

On season 6 of GoT and the hits just keep coming! lol

I so missed the boat on this show all these years...

What episode are you on?

Season 6 is my favorite. Last two episodes of that season are probably the best television I've ever watched. Episode 9 is so well done, choreographed, filmed, tense, gut wrenching, mind blowing. When it ends you think, how could any episode ever top that?

And yeah, you missed out. Theories, cliffhangers, watching each new episode a couple of times to really soak everything in before the next Sunday. General talking with friends that are also watching. But you didn't miss out on waiting for long, long stretches between seasons especially towards the end.

**Stranger Things Spoiler Alert**

In some ways I like season 3 more, but in other ways I thought it was the worst of the 3 seasons. I just can't get past the whole Russian base under the mall thing, just came off as a James Bond spoof or something. Also, as someone who "came of age" in the 80s, they tried WAY too hard to hit us over the head with 80s clothes, products, music, etc.

I'm just dissapointed because they could have gone a lot of interesting ways in season 3, and the Russian thing just didn't work. Also, the whole Mind Flayer and Upside Down were always mysterious and scary. Turning it into basically just another monster chasing them around was a mistake. 1/3 Wonder Years, 1/3 Bond, 1/3 Alien = Meh.

Incredible ending though, literally had tears in my eyes.

I was pleasantly surprised by it. Of course some nitpicks, but going in I didn't expect much since it's a tough show to keep going but I think they did well overall and I was thoroughly entertained the whole time. I'd say clearly better than season 2 and then debatable with the original but I'd still pick original

Just finished episode 2 last night. Quite the finish to that episode.

On a side note, I don't think I would have thought I'd want anyone dead as bad as I wanted King Jeffrey dead, but Ramsey has proved me wrong! I sure hope he gets his, and I hope it is slow and painful...

About Stranger Things, haven't seen season 3 yet, will there be a season 4, or did they wrap things up?

Ramsey might be my favorite TV villain of all time. Thing is the actor who plays him is the nicest dude in the world. Crazy to see interviews of him.

There will be a 4th and possibly 5th. Make sure to watch the after credits in the last episode as it teases something.

Pretty much the exact thoughts of nearly everyone that's watched the show. I want to say there have even been times I missed Joffery. Almost missed him anyway.

Ramsay is a fun villain though, at least there's that.

Looks like you can buy the whole series on DVD for $20-$30, the cost of a couple months of Netflix. I don't understand why people are losing their minds over this.

A couple of obvious questions regarding Game of Thrones:

1. Did no one worry about, or catch STDs? I would think STDs would be running wild at that time, given behaviors.

2. I'm assuming that during those times, women didn't shave their entire bodies, yet on the show, they were always hairless.

These are just thoughts.

My wife and I watch Friends most nights before we fall asleep. Switching discs is a pain once you get used to streaming. Worth losing your mind? No. But a modest inconvenience? Yes. I’m frugal and will continue switching discs. We just have ad-laden Hulu for $1/month and can’t stream Friends anyway.

I buy all my favorite TV Shows on dvd. I just like knowing that I own them, and if I want to see them, at anytime, I can.

They have become so cheap in the past couple of years, I can't see not owning them.

I don't recall the ending...but I was never a big fan of Stranger Things. I watched it because I pretty much always have my computer on streaming something, even if most of my attention is focused elsewhere. Only when I can't take my eyes of my computer do I upgrade it to "must watch on real TV" status.

But I get why people loved the 1st two seasons. I'm usually very easy to please. I don't have high standards for TV. It just has to entertain me. Stranger Things barely did that and I found the Russian base just too ridiculous. Like they can pay off some small-town Mayer and build this enormous base with Russian Soldiers during the midst of the cold war.


Anyway, in my boredom I watched two shows I never would have checked out. "Fleabag," and Marvelous Mr. Masiel." I thought both were hilarious. Sorry if I'm late and others posted these, but I just watched them recently and thought both were hilarious.

I also was forced to watch Veronica Mars and was told, "seriously, you'll love it, she is so funny." So, didn't know who she was, but that was a pretty clever show and entertaining in a...-if you're going to be held hostage by a GF/Wife, it's not the worst thing you could watch-type show.

[laughing] Fair points. However, when a young girl goes into a fire holding 3 old fossils and she comes out the Mother of 3 young Dragons, you need to suspend your disbelief a bit to begin with.

Also...could account for the lack of body hair. It was burned off. And maybe those were the grooming habits back in the day, they just didn't happen to make it into the literature.

I used to do this....but at a certain point is started to feel like when I was a kid and my Grandparents had all these old movies on tapes. And not the normal tapes, those smaller ones I believe.

I don't know, it's so cheap to stream, but it's also pretty cheap to buy a DVD. Whatever makes you happy.

Sounds like you have Amazon Prime. Try the tv show Patriot, only two seasons. Nobody has taken me up on that yet, it may be my favorite tv series of all time. It's not a background noise type of show, it needs undivided attention. (not the movie THE Patriot with Mel Gibson.)

Binged both seasons of Cobra Kai on YouTube last week. Parts of it are pretty hokey, but it was a fun trip down nostalgia lane for this '80s kid. Watching a show told from Johnny Lawrence's perspective really makes you go back and see the original movies differently too.

If you like "Fleabag," Phoebe Waller-Bridge (the titular character) was the show runner / writer for the first season of "Killing Eve" a BBC show that's worth tracking down. (Don't remember if I gave the show a plug earlier in the thread vs. thought about doing so.)
