    Watched entire new season in one sitting. Show is fantastic. Last episode was pretty wild.

    It’s absolutely better as the show progresses.

    Season 1 of stranger things leaves so many unanswered questions and they become answered as the series progresses. There’s no way I could just stop after the first season

    s1 is very good
    s2 is not good
    s3 is great
    s4 is awesome

    I will say, I haven't rewatched s2 or s1 in a long time but if s4 was the first and only season it would be miles better. I'm sure my brain is just fuzzy on some stuff but s4 is all encompassing with backstories that I feel like there might be some retconning going on that annoys me.

    But I think s4 is worth the journey by itself.

    S4 takes a while to build and then pauses for the 2nd half of the season when it finally gets good

    First couple episodes were cringy. The acting was over the top in the HS cafeteria and gym.

    Season 2 was meh, season 3 was better, but so far season 4 has been awesome. Worth it imo.

    I think, at least for me, it was getting over the aging of the characters and the age of the new characters. After an ep or two, I kinda got over it and enjoyed it a lot more.

    Also helps that ep 4 kicked ass and really got the season going.

    I felt like it was a better version of uncut gems. Uncut gems was a clusterfuck IMO. This seemed like a more organized version of the same movie with less BS.

    I thought what (among other things) made UG soo good was the absolute frenetic energy and intensity...or "chaos" that you alluded to.

    It was by design/part of the moral, imo.

    Couple of notes on Hustle

    - They fucked up the ending by making him a Celtic. Any other team would have been better

    - Moe Wagner being the shitty German bust was good sorry Celemo

    - I had no idea that was Anthony Edwards tbqh.

    - First time in my life I liked a Jazz player

    lol, Watched it last night

    I really liked the movie, I mean it ain't Citizen Kane or anything but I got sucked in and the run time (almost 2H) didn't bother me
    Wagner being the German bust was pretty solid
    Juancho was pretty good
    Kenny Smith going on about the titties at the pool :laugh:
    Yeah I had no idea that was Ant Edwards as the heel until the credits rolled...was gonna IMDB that shit because I didn't recognize him
    Dirk pretending to not know Sandler was great

    looks like I got haxxed, kept asking me to select a subscription plan when I signed in and none of my saved payment info was showing up in my profile, when I was able to get control again (pretty easy process btw, gotta hand it to them) there were like 6 different profiles on my account with the main one I use having a new name

    oh well, at least they couldn't access my card info, time to get Peaky

    What’s the general gist of Stranger Things? I love the 80’s but didn’t feel like watching a kid’s show. I’m guessing it’s more than that and no only faced on 12-14 year olds?

    S4 is straight up gore/horror basically. It is far from a kids show.
    I kinda expected the series to go downhill but man S4 has been terrific so far.

    The Hawkins scenes were great, Cali scenes dragged but Argyle was incredible and the scene at Susie’s house was hilarious, Russia dragged but ended on a really high note. Overall really good stuff.

    s1 is like ET crossed with the Goonies, with a little bit of horror/mystery

    s3 is a bit more horror crossed with 80s mall vibes

    s4 is practically nightmare on elm street

    no part of any of it is a "kid's show", it's just that 80s vibe where a group of kids get together and get into shit

    S2 was just the filler season that introduced a lot of the characters/storylines that would be more important later on
