    As to bullies when I was in HS in Las Vegas in 03 or 04, this super rich kid that was the child of some hotshot lawyer was going around and harassing minorities and telling everyone he was bringing back the Klan and got in fight with some kid at a party. When the kid was driving off he threw a rock at the car which went through the window and seriously fucked up half his face including destroying his eye. I think he was in a coma for a while. The father fought to get his son off and almost got away with the little shit getting only community service but after it was reported the community went apeshit and he got some time. Nothing like what a black granger banger would have gotten though because he was rich and white. So there are crazy awful bullies irl.

    Cracked.com died because it got too far up it's own SJW ass with the work of snowflakes like Robert Evans.
    They lost all of their talented people recently and will never recover.

    Does no-one notice that the girl in the rainbow room with 8 isn't 11? 11 it's brunette and the other girl had blonde or RED hair. Tell me I'm not the only one to notice this obvious detale.

    I am wayyyyyyy late to the game b/c hype really makes my cynicism boil...
    I just watched S2 - and I had to turn it off at the Chicago episode. What. The. Hell. Happened. Hopper needs to go punch that episode back into the writing room...

  • HattiesaurusRex

    See, I thought Billy was like... married? To Max? Because he was just so controlling and the racism came off more as jealousy at first, and he wouldn't call her his sister. Also their parents weren't even mentioned as existing until super late. So I thought it was some weird backwoods child marriage thing.

  • Frankenstein's Mother

    8. Did anyone in the 1980s refer to Kentucky Fried Chicken as “KFC”? OR IS STEVE A TIME TRAVELLER???

  • Phovon
    Phovon Year ago

    I think they'll track down doctor Brenner and he will have either impacted himself with powers from some of the kids for protection in a really fucked up way or the kids will be protected him because they're brainwashed or something and they have to deal with that.

    I mean, part of why the goddess Kali is revered precisely because nothing can be created, there can be no order or beauty, without chaos. So yes, the character appears morally grey in this season, but in a sense so is El at times, and they've had vastly different recovery processes after what they went through. I think Kali will be a 'chaotic good' going into season three, which would work well as a foil for Hawkins Lab's attempting to contain the chaos they've created through their carefully controlled, yet ultimately evil experiments on children. Chaos and order can't be innately moralized, so it wouldn't make sense to judge Kali just yet.

    When they talked about kali's powers being great for a villain, something clicked. They're totally right, and she's 100% a watered down Aizen. It would work so well.

    Holy shit, Mike is *such* a little bitch the entire season. Okay, I get it, you miss Ele but like you miss Ele so much that 'WE CAN'T KNOW ANY OTHER GIRLS, IF I'M NOT GETTING ANY NO ONE IS'? Fucking chill out, man. Do you think you can let your black and/or fat friends have a girlfriend?

  • Alex Thomas
    Alex Thomas Year ago

    I DO think that Max has something to do with "whole thing" and that will be revealed in Season 3. Also there is 11 and 8; but where are 9 and 10. Possible they are Max and her brother or yet to be revealed.

    I really hope next season we get "Brenner is part alive/part mindflayer." Also, I need to know what happened to 009 and 010! I hope we get an evil powered kid. Someone that touched something and went super dark.

  • May Velaz

    Bob dying didn't surprise me because I feel like a lot of shows kill off the nice guy. Maybe because he didn't have story growth or because they want you to feel cathartic.

  • R Nickerson

    You haven't exceeded the character limit, so specify that it's for 2 and not 1 in the title

  • sirdaveysockrocker

    I love that the Duffer brothers knew we all thought what was going to happen with Bob and Dr Paul Reiser, SO the twist was they werent evil. They put a twist on the twist we expected! +8 for meta cleverness right there.

  • the madman lowercase

    LOL so obviously Dan is the only smart one at Cracked, "D'Art" is a very stupid name. "Twelve" would be a good name...maybe "E.T."? Hell, "Count de la Fere"...FTW

    Also, what's the deal with Steve always getting beat up? His nose should be crooked by now.

  • Syrange13

    My question is why does literally everyone online spell it "demigorgon" when it's clearly "demogorgon"

  • Jaydon Amaya

    Biggest question of the season- WHERE IS YURTLE?! He lost his home to dart and then was never seen again

    please let beaded dude sitting in the middle talk more lol yall kept interrupting him

  • Eddie Brock
    Eddie Brock Year ago

    I hated Billy. I thought stuff was going to be way darker than it was. I had two theories:
    A) He's actually gay and the reason they had to move was because he got caught was because of something Max did by accident so now their Father hates his guts. (wrong)
    B) Billy and Max's father was sexually abusing Max and he slipped and said something so they had to move before an investigation happened. (wrong)
    I was thinking way darker stuff. I was disappointed when I realized it was just an overbearing Father.
    I hope they do more with 8 later. However her presence did feel like it came out of nowhere. I think the next big question is what happened to the other numbers?

  • DeathnoteBB
    DeathnoteBB Year ago

    Kali being used as a villian would be SO overdone and sad. Making a traumatized woman of color a villian? Not great. Make her conflicted and complex but please god I hope they don't make her a straight-up villian.

    My theory for the next season is them finding more kids like 11 and 8 and the portal to he upside down opens and they have to stop it together and then it basically turns into the X-men

  • Maria Proctor

    I also totally suspected all the new people in season 2 to be secretly evil (US or Soviet) agents. Including Max and Billy.

    ghostdog2041 Year ago

    The first season was better and much tighter as a story. In season 2, the other government experiment girl didn’t pay off, hopper had little/ nothing to do, the bullet tripwire didn’t pay off, the baby lizard monster was a waste of time (imho), and Winona ends up doing something screwy with her house again (Christmas lights/ root map). I feel like they also wimped out of the obvious racial implications of the asshole older brother, though I have no idea why. If there was anybody that you could get a pass for making a racist, surely it would be the human villain, no?

    i want to see more of the upside down. like they all have to go there to rescue joyce and some other characters. so it becomes an adventure

  • Andrew Cleasby
    Andrew Cleasby Year ago

    His argument to call Dart Nougat sums up why Americans call Autumn; Fall.
    "Hurr durr you like nougat, I call you Nougat"
    "Leaf fall down, I call season Fall"
    Dart was better than any of your suggestions, it also hinted ahead of time that there was more than one. I was waiting for "the three musketeers" to show up as soon as he named him Dart.

  • K Dubz Jr
    K Dubz Jr Year ago

    One thing I haven't anyone mention is that El had to be taken out of the situation for a while. It would have been too easy if she were there when shit started getting real. So going to meet 8, served multiple story functions.

  • Cosmic Remix

    Billy is a racist. That's so fucking obvious

    Why did they have to kill Bob? Anyone else could die and I wouldn't care. But he's fucking Sean Astin!!!!!

  • Victor Cates
    Victor Cates Year ago

    I think a geek audience is too easy and it bother me immensely that we can often think of no better praise than "wow, that was so badass!", rather than praising something for capturing something about the human condition or being surprising. Eleven defeating everything at will is boring and they just film her bleeding more to convey added intensity to solve ANY situation. It's perfunctory. They need to change the equation so they don't have the neat option of Eleven stepping in to save the day and undercutting tension.

    Am I the only person wondering why Hopper didn't ask them to whip up a fake Barb body to give her parents closure, and end their investigation..?
    I mean, they made one for Will in like 48hrs... in a YEAR no one, not *one single person* suggested a fake body?

    I think Sisters was a massive wasted opportunity. That's the setting where you were supposed to put in all the Repo Men references.

  • Titanic Truths
    Titanic Truths Year ago +1

    I only see two paths for Billy. Barb, or Steven. death in the upside down, or redemption. they can't keep him the racist douche he's been. I'm leaning more towards a Barb ending though.

    Did anyone else think the new bully was a racist? Like I thought that subplot would lead to Lucas getting hurt or killed by him

  • Michael Ruther

    I thought Billy and Max were undercover Russians seeking Upside Down intel, a la Paul Reiser's fear about gate information falling into the wrong hands. Very surprised and disappointed that Billy was just a dick and not Spetsnaz.

  • Scott Haartman
    Scott Haartman Year ago

    I'm baffled by people who call out the Chicago episode. I think it's extremely clear that this was in the season to 1) let Eleven process her anger about loosing a "normal" life, 2) to tease that (spoiler!) Brenner is still alive, and 3) set up a percieved betrayal so eventually we'll see Eight vs. Eleven. At this point, Eleven is so powerful, it becomes challenging to find an appropriate antagonist for her to fight. But Eight's illusion powers seem to be a pretty potent weapon, and we already know they work on Eleven.
    My prediction: Season 3 is Eight vs. Eleven, with some mystery setting up the return of the Mind Flayer / Upside Down threat to be concluded in Season 4. Poor Will needs a breather for a season!

  • Frigga's Ring

    No comment about Hopper sending Bob to die? Sending Bob alone to turn the power on in a building full of demodogs was the significantly worse than the Chicago trip.

  • Bratti M

    Definitely didn't like the 2nd season as much. The plot was so unfocused this season, and i felt no tension in the first few episodes because there wasn't a threat for anyone but Will.

  • Bruno

    O'Brien got totally owned by Bell and Angelica. Their opinions are well structured and mature and O'Brien's are just so fucking dumb. He didn't get the Chicago episode so he just bashes it because all the cool kids are doing it. Then he nitpicks about a name, saying it makes no sense when the whole thing has no relevance whatsoever and was merely based on a candy that happened to be there. The other two were like, WTF?, just calm down, listen and learn, boy.

  • CauCajun Saint
    CauCajun Saint Year ago +3

    I am still amazed that a season built around 80s movie sequels, has an entire episode ripped out of one the greatest sequels of the 80s, The Empire Strikes Back, and not only is the reference not being acknowledged by most reviewers, but the episode itself is being condemned.
    Eleven leaves to go find a master of the power she possesses, using a vision to guide her there (Luke to Dagobah, as guided by Obi-Wan). Master helps her tap powers by calling on fake vision of her Papa (Luke's vision encounter in the cave with Vader) Student leaves training early to return to help her friends (Luke to Cloud City). Even a giant object was moved with the mind (Eleven moved the train car, Yoda raised the X-Wing)
