Stranger Things - Chapter Three: The Pollywog TV review

The primary focus of “Chapter Three” is to introduce everyone in the group to Dustin‘s (Gaten Matarazzo) new pet who only Will (Noah Schnapp) makes a (pretty damn obvious) connection to the Upside Down. Meanwhile, Nancy (Natalia Dyer) is forced to deal with the fallout from the drunkenly-honest outburst at the party and the break-up with her boyfriend she doesn’t even remember. The further appearances of the extra-douchey Billy (Dacre Montgomery) seem to be in place, other than to simply have a mean kid around, to make us forget and/or forgive the lesser-dickishness of Steve (Joe Keery) was for most of last season.

Stranger Things - Chapter Two: Trick or Treat, Freak TV review

“Trick or Treat, Freak” provides much of the memorable snippets from the various trailers promoting the Second Season of Stranger Things, primarily putting out foursome in Ghostbusters costumes for basically the entire episode. Halloween returns to Hawkins, which means trick-or-treating for the gang and newcomer Max (Sadie Sink) – much to the sullen Mike‘s (Finn Wolfhard) displeasure, and new trouble with Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) discovering more ruined pumpkin patches and the beginning of a mystery which will be his primary focus him for the next couple of episodes. Getting caught up the case, the sheriff looses time causing some trouble at home with an already stir-crazy Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). Speaking of Eleven, both episode two and three begin filling in what happened to Eleven following the end of Season Two and explaining how she eventually ended up staying with Hopper in the woods.

Stranger Things - Chapter One: MADMAX television review

It may take the entire opening episode of the show’s Second Season to get around to my favorite Stranger Things character, but in the meantime the show catches us up a bit on what we’ve missed since the conclusion of the show’s First Season. Will (Noah Schnapp) is back, although he feels smothered by the over-protectiveness of his friends and family, and has the lasting effect of occasional visions of the Upside Down which his psychologist (Paul Reiser) assures Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) are only signs of PTSD based on the anniversary of his time in the Upside Down, while the scientists in the basement continue to push back against the rift which is far from dormant. Mike’s (Finn Wolfhard) obsession with finding Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) has begun effecting his school work and home life. Nancy (Natalia Dyer) is still with Steve (Joe Keery). All still friends, Mike, Will, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) are interested in the new kid in town (Sadie Sink) while the girls in high school are far more interested in her older brother (Dacre Montgomery).
