Well. I i had tears rolling down my cheeks listening to Hopper’s letter he wrote to El, its so well written. Proper tugs on the heart strings conjouring emotions i feel for my 6 year old daughter and her growing up so fast and me trying to savour every moment of it. Very well done.
On the series.. i loved it. I watched it all in the space of 3/4 weeks, trying not to binge on it too badly. Season one was great, season two not so much, and season three was ultimate cheese but superb; from the new characters to russian plot line.
Things I didn’t like -
The Terminator dude
The CGI slime ball baddy (would have preffered for him to be some black smoke version)
Somethings just a little off with Nancy and Jonathon. I think they needed to be more tense together.
That song they sung when Suzie came on the radio ffs. “Listen love, ill sing it afterwards!”
Things i loved -
The constant barrage of 80s music and the Nostalgia.
The intro was almost hypnotic and i never fast forwarded or skipped it.
The children’s acting, in particular El who i thought was awesome. For a kid like her to act that strongly at her age really was impressive i thought.
Final thought - i wish they ended the series there on that final episode. It finalised everything very well. I really want Mike and El to be together though so im also delighted there will be a season 4 and Hopper to make a comeback FTW!
Sorry but . That poor 17 year old. Just imagining a woman watching that and being completely horrified and shocked by a few swear words from kids get a life!
