    Netflix Netflix Series - Stranger Things 4

    I'm generally the other way around. I've watched far too many things over the years on Netflix that I spent most of thinking that it wasn't really working for me, then finding that in the last 20 minutes or so, it all pulls together and I end up really liking it. Movies are one thing, however...

    So...unfortunately, but not surprisingly, Sadie Sink didn't get an Emmy nom.

    At the time that their characters in Buffy the Vampire Slayer were still in high school, actors Nicholas Brendon and Charisma Carpenter were in their late 20s.

    By the way, is it just me, or does anyone else keep thinking of Eddie Munson as "Eddie Munster"? I'm rather surprised that the jocks didn't call him that when they thought he was leading a Satanic cult.

    That was awesome, my dudes! I have one question, though:

    I found some synergy between my feelings about Eddie and for Steve Harrington. It's really nice how the show introduces characters that seem like dickheads straight off, but as you get to know them better, they turn into great characters. I think if you told me after the first couple of episodes...

    One more link...apparently, a lot of people, fans and critics alike have pointed to one particular scene from this set of episodes as a stand-out. It's one I mentioned in my comments about these episodes. At any rate, Netflix has posted this scene on YouTube. It's from Episode 4, "Dear Billy"...

    I've been listening to KB since the early 80s, though I confess that it's been a while since I listened to her playlist in my iTunes. The 1985 (thus perfect for this season) album Hounds of Love, which includes "Running Up That Hill", is my favorite of her albums, and this song is my second...

    So, apparently, there's been an increased interest in Kate Bush on iTunes (and, I assume, other music streaming/download sites) since the current season dropped.

    Netflix Netflix Series - Stranger Things 4

    To me, it was an artistic choice to interperse two separate scenes that mirror each other. Much like the first episode of this season, where the scenes basketball championship game swapped back and forth with the D&D scenes and each mirrored the other. I binged all seven episodes Saturday...

    I was planning on getting started on the new season this afternoon, but the weather is, while not overly hot, muggy. So my wife was already set up in the living room with the A/C going by the time I got up. She's not interested in watching Stranger Things, as she's been told (by me and others)...

    Yeah, the reviews so far seem to be very positive, though a number of the critics do think that the episodes are longer than they need to be.

    Netflix Netflix Series - Stranger Things 4

    I like being able to watch several episodes in a row, and I don't like waiting for episodes to pile up so that I can watch several of them in a row. On the other hand, binging an entire season of 10-13 episodes has its own problems. I rather like the approach taken by HBO Max for some of their...

    Netflix Netflix Series - Stranger Things 4

    I'm guessing that they mean that the episodes themselves will be longer. As for the number of episodes, there was a teaser trailer back in November (see post #56 in this thread) announcing the titles of nine episodes. I suppose those could be all released on May 27, with others coming on July 1...

    So...are we assuming "Vol 1" will be five episodes and "Vol 2" will be four?

    You've said this a couple of times, and I don't understand what you're going on about. "Abbreviated season"? Season 3 was not "abbreviated" or "condensed" relative to either of the first two seasons. Season 1 was 8 episodes, Season 2 was 9 episodes (and many people thought ep7 could've been left...
