Synopsis:
Set in Hawkins, Indiana during the 1980s, Stranger Things chronicles the search for a young boy who vanishes into thin air under highly suspicious circumstances. His mother opens an investigation into the boy’s disappearance with local authorities, unraveling a series of mysteries involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. A love letter to the ubiquitous cult classics of the 80s, Stranger Things is also a coming of age story for the boy’s three closest friends that draws them into a world where mysteries lurk beneath the surface.

Cast includes Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Matthew Modine, Cara Buono, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp

number of episodes: 8
network: Netflix
premiere date: July 15, 2016

Trailer:
https://youtu.be/b9EkMc79ZSU


...Looks like a homage to the Spielberg films like E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and maybe some other films like The Goonies and Super 8 (which in itself was a homage to Spielberg) mixed in.

All 8 episodes will be streamed on Netflix this July 15.

Very Amblin-esque trailer & a nice Drew Struzan-style poster. And the casting of Winona Ryder is just great.

I wonder if the 8 episodes will tell the complete story or is this planned as a Season 1?

Already out yesterday. Got good reviews from critics. And although not yet greenlit, the plan is to continue the story to a Season 2.

Saw the pilot, and thought it was awesome; they got all the 1983 details right--Dungeons & Dragons, hairstyles, fashion, music, and lots more, right to the fonts used for the credits with the dirty, grainy look.

Only thing I didn't like was the side story of the annoying sister and her douchebag boyfriend.

Watched until episode 4 --halfway through-- it's truly compelling, wanted to watch it until the end but I have to get up early; will finish the last 4 episodes tomorrow.

Loved the first 7 episodes. Episode 8 kinda fell flat for me. Parang minadali yung conclusion. And a lot of things are still a mystery. Understandable naman since may season 2.

The Upside Down world reminded me of Silent Hill. The monster even looked like one of the monsters from the game.

You can have an autograph and/or photograph (taken only by the official photographer) with Millie Bobby Brown, but for a price. So far, APCC Manila has not announced the exact prices yet, but I'm guessing it will be in the range of US$ 30 to US$ 40 per autograph or photo.

Update from APCC Manila's FB page:

We would like to clarify that the tickets to Millie Bobby Brown's autograph, photograph, and meet-and-greet sessions are free, but slots are only limited and these have already been awarded to winners of Netflix's "Stranger Things" Facebook contest. You can still catch her on Saturday, August 27, 1:30pm, at the Main Stage, for "In Conversation with Millie Bobby Brown."

Slightly OT:

The Cast of Netflix's 'Stranger Things' Is Coming To Manila This Month at APCC

Be ready to channel your inner Eleven because the cast of Netflix' Stranger Things will be coming to Manila for the AsiaPOP Comicon Manila 2017, happening this August 25-27 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

APCC, through their partnership with Netflix, will be giving fans the chance to meet and interact with their favorite characters, including Noah Schnapp (who plays Will Byers) and Joe Keery (who plays Steve Harrington), as well as the show's newcomers Dacre Montgometry (who will be playing Billy) and Sadie Sink (who will be playing Max, Billy's sister).

And because they want to make it as immersive as possible, Netflix will also be bringing the show's worlds to life through their immersive and interactive zones. Fans get to reenact and relive their favorite Stranger Things moments from the Byers' Living Room, Hawkins Lab, and even the Upside Down.

Stranger Things will likely go beyond 4 seasons, per producers

The Internet let out a collective gasp when Ross Duffer, co-creator of Stranger Things with his brother Matt, told New York Magazine there would only be four seasons of the Netflix hit. “We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross told the magazine.

But now The Duffers and executive producer Shawn Levy tell EW that there’s a good chance the show will go past that timeline… but not by much. “Hearts were heard breaking in Netflix headquarters when the Brothers made four seasons sound like an official end, and I was suddenly getting phone calls from our actors’ agents,” says Levy. “The truth is we’re definitely going four seasons and there’s very much the possibility of a fifth. Beyond that, it becomes I think very unlikely.”

The Duffer Brothers just want to make sure they don’t wear out their welcome… or credibility. “It’s not wrapped up this season,” says Ross. “I think [season 2] will be a satisfying end but there’s still danger out there. There’s too much to deal with in one more season. If we’re able to, there will be at least four, there could be more. I think there’s going to come a point where why aren’t these people leaving Hawkins? Like we’re going to stretch credibility. It wasn’t intended to be a seven-season thing.”

Agree with you on all counts; last 2 episodes were the best, and Season 1 was overall better.

Season 2's pacing was off, and I really didn't like the way Eleven was sidelined for most of the season, leaving her as the saving grace for the final battle. Her personal arc was also awkward--finding her Mom then going off to Chicago alone to find Kali--all that was shown too late towards the end of the season, when it should've been shown earlier.

Liked: Bob, Lucas' character development, Steve's transformation into the Dad-type of the party, Paul Reiser not being a true villain
Didn't like: Dustin's a$$hole-ry, Nancy and Jonathan not wielding weapons to fight, and those two step-siblings from California--but Max wasn't that bad; Billy is the worst, but the show needs a villain now that Steve is one of the good guys.

Which is exactly my gripe about the pacing; her arc with Eleven should've been done earlier, not much later, as it would've made more sense in the overall narrative. I also think she's coming back next season, maybe even with others--she's 008, and Jane is 011, there could be nine more test subjects scattered throughout the USA, as the Hawkins National Laboratory was just one of the facilities used by Project MKUltra.

Post by: kiwimig on Nov 02, 2017 at 08:54 PM
i loved season 2 as much as season 1! shempre wala na masyadong mystery this time around but the script was still excellent and the acting of the kids are much better now. the musical scoring was spot on unlike other movies set in the 80s (i.e. atomic blonde) that lumps together all the different songs from the entire decade even if they're sometimes 8-9 years apart. also, they let the older characters listen to less hip music of that time just like our parents of that period. i think a lot of us enjoyed the last couple of episodes because it reminded us of our youth. in 1984, i was about the age of those kids as well, so hearing pat benatar and olivia newton-john songs in the dance surely brought back lovely memories.
Title: Re: Stranger Things
Post by: Verbl Kint on Nov 03, 2017 at 02:20 AM
Eleven essentially became the deus ex machina for this season. 

The episode set in Chicago was essentially a filler and a shameless plug for the next season.  Eleven being able to channel her anger Sith-Lord style could have been integrated into Hawkins, without having to go to Chicago.

Also, a bad guy entirely made up of smoke is really a cop out for me, notwithstanding the presence of Resident Evil style dogs.
Title: Re: Stranger Things
Post by: Ashburndaride on Nov 03, 2017 at 11:56 AM
Honestly, based on the trailer and after seeing the prologue I though the giant monster was only an illusion made by 008. Wreaking havoc to the city of Hawkins to lure 011 out from hiding, perhaps it could have been a better twist? No?  ;D

Done with season 2. Season 1 was better. Season2 was a slow burn. The change in tone the last 3 episodes was kinda jarring. episode 7 felt really out of place. But episodes 8 and 9 was great. Full of tension. Overall, I think season 2 was good if not great.

‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Adds Maya Hawke, Ups Priah Ferguson

Season 3 of Netflix’s sci-fi hit “Stranger Things” is gearing up. The streaming giant has tapped Maya Hawke as one of the new leads and upped Priah Ferguson to a recurring role.

Hawke will play an “alternative girl” bored with her mundane day job. She seeks excitement in her life and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins, Ind.

Ferguson appeared last season in a guest role as Erica, Lucas’ strong-willed, little sister. The scene-stealer returns in the next installment with an army of her own friends. No longer content with sitting on the sidelines, Erica finds herself on a wild mission to save Hawkins from a dangerous new threat.

From ComingSoon.Net

Cary Elwes and Jake Busey Join Stranger Things Season 3 Cast

Netflix announced today that actors Cary Elwes and Jake Busey will be joining the Stranger Things Season 3 cast in guest roles.

Cary Elwes will be playing Mayor Kline. The character is best described as handsome, slick, and sleazy. Mayor Kline is your classic ’80s politician – more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs. Jake Busey will be playing Bruce, a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor.

Yeah. If you freeze frame the moment just before the drilling machine explodes, Hopper isn't seen anywhere where he was supposed to be standing as he was looking at Joyce.

Post by: Klaus Weasley on Jul 08, 2019 at 12:14 PM
Some random predictions for Season 4:

- Joyce Beyers and family will move near a government/military facility courtesy of Dr. Sam Owens from Season 2. The goal is to stop the Russians from accessing the Upside Down.

- Eleven will go to a normal high school with Will. Trying to adjust to normal teenage high school life will be a struggle.

- Eleven and Mike will have a long distance romance. But one or both will have a potential alternate love interest, testing their relationship.

- Eleven will not get her powers back until late in the season, during a very crucial moment.

- If Hopper is alive, we will not know for sure until the last episode of season 4.

- Will will be be revealed to be gay and have a crush on another boy.

- Mrs. Wheeler may finally be a part of the adventure this season instead of being the "normal" one in the background.

- Nancy will be an actual writer for the Hawkins paper and the new editor will be a woman.

- Some of the shenanigans will be in the video store that Steve and Robin will be working in, much like the ice cream shop this season. So expect a lot of movie references.

- Suzie will somehow end up in Hawkins. She'll either move there or will be visiting Dustin. Expect another duet from them because both of the actors who play them are Broadway veterans.

- I think Will can control Demogorgons, should be valuable when they face off with them again.
