Great show, especially for the Netflix concept. S2 is better imo. The Duffer brothers' influences are on a huge display. From Aliens to Close Encounters to an awesome Ghostbusters throw back with Hopper flicking slime of his hands and an awesome Stand Bt Me train track scenes. Part of what makes this show so great is if you are a late 70s early 80s kid, it brings you back. The music is not typical 80s you hear everyday, they mix in some great tunes you've maybe forgotten about.
That being said I did find it very comical that the demagorgans (sp?) Couldn't break the glass doors to the Hawkins lab. Broke thru everything else, but the glass on those doors??? Maybe they should of built containment room from same glass.
