    Agreed. I read an interview with the Duffer brothers regarding that and they said Episode 7 essentially served as an experimental one for the series, as well as to break up the monotony of the Hawkins story line. Don't worry, it will pick right back up with 8, and you won't be disappointed.

    Here's what I am referring to (no spoilers):

    "Whether it works for people or not, it allows us to experiment a little bit," said Matt in a conversation with EW. "It’s important for Ross and I to try stuff and not feel like we’re doing the same thing over and over again. It’s almost like doing a whole little other pilot episode in the middle of your season, which is kind of a crazy thing to do. But it was really fun to write and cast and work on."

    While some fans might not have enjoyed the episode, Matt explained why it was necessary for the new season.


    "Our test of the episode was we tried to pull it out of the show just to make sure that we needed it because I didn’t want it in there as filler — even though some critics are accusing us of doing that," Matt said. "But ------’s journey kind of fell apart, like the ending didn’t work, without it. So I was like, whether this works or not, we need this building block in here or the whole show is going to collapse. It’s not going to end well."

    Ross agreed, adding "That ------ story line overall is sort of the biggest risk we took. We’re going to continue to do risks moving forward to keep us on our toes...."

    While episodes 1-4 are great, 5,6,8,9 are the ones that will be the money makers for the series.

    My 11 year old, myself, and my 3 month old watched them all without a break Sunday from 9-4:30.

    Loved it. All of it. Especially that it was in 1984. The GOAT year for a young 7 year old Talk. Nostalgia-ed hard at every turn.

    Just finished it. Agree with general sentiment, and that episode seven didn't fit at all. Like, felt like a pilot for some shitty "edgy" show on CBS that only lasts for four episodes before it's cancelled.

    Also, at some point the show has to make use of the fact that Dustin looks like Eddie Van Halen, right?

    Great season. Ep 7 wasn’t good and killed the momentum. Felt cheap and rushed. Will not watch that inevitable spin off.

    Hot take but Stranger Things might be the most overrated show of all time. Not that great

    American Vandal is pretty good 3 episodes in. The first episode had me in tears re: padded toilet seats.

    Fell asleep watching that the other night 25 minutes into Ep1. I was expecting a real documentary, and it just seemed corny w bad acting. Convince me otherwise bc I've heard good things.

    Not sure I can convince of anything if you don't have a sense of humor as immature as mine. It slowed down a bit in episodes 2 and 3 but still has been pretty good to me. It's a mockumentary of Making a Murderer.

    I've been watching a lot of Mindhunters. FBI Behavioral Science Unit in its infancy where they go around interviewing serial killers. There's a little bit of boobage to offset some of the craziness so that's nice.

    Don't know if you've already seen it but Narcos is great. Season 3 will make you binge it in like 3 days.

    Also really enjoyed David Simon's new show on HBO, The Deuce. It's got James Franco and a ton of actors from The Wire.

    I'm sure its not too far off. Prob seen every South Park and Rick & Morty... not Making a Murderer, though. That might have something to do with it. I'll give it another shot.

    If you are looking for something lighthearted Ghosted on Fox has been really funny. It has Adam Scott and Craig Robinson. I like both of those guys so maybe I’m biased. Entertaining show.

    Try The Ranch. It is a series comedy that I have really enjoyed. Pretty much stars the cast from That 70's show. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment to come out.

    Finished American Vandal. It actually got less funny and more serious in the second half. Pretty good show.

    Shameless is awesome. Entire cast is really solid top to bottom.

    New season actually just started Sunday and had never seen it before I streamed all six seasons so kinda bummed I'm gonna have to wait week to week.

    Sure ozark has already been mentioned and also really enjoyed bloodlines
