Welcome back to the upside down.

Let me say I like the first season of Stranger things and couldn’t wait for part 2 to come out. Wow, it really was worth the wait, and yes it did deliver on being better than the first. It was great seeing the cast come back and seeing some new faces too.

I also loved the way they had set up the multi-storylines for season 2 (we get more of El aka Eleven’s story, the Kid’s storyline (Dustin, Lucas, Will, Maxine “Max” and Mike), the teen’s storyline (Steve, Nancy, Billy, and Mike) and the Adult’s storyline (Joyce, Jim, Martin, Bob, and Sam). Each storyline was done great and I loved how they ended up connecting towards the end. The effects were much better in this one and the music was awesome. They had a supernatural threat and a human threat for everyone to battle. I love the way they had evolved El’s character. I like the way how the solved the season 1 storyline but open a season 3 storyline (with Kali) and the last shot of the upside down.

When I heard about a season 2 I was a little bit scared (some sequels don’t live up to the first movie), but after seeing it I can say I can’t wait for season 3 since the Duffer Brothers said they have a 4 to 5 season plan.
