Okay full thoughts
For starters this season is big on the body horror, I think I thought to myself a lot of Junji Ito just because there were occasions the bodies looked like something from the Amigara Fault but anyway it was a very good season. It had a slow start and I wasn’t a fan of all the high school stuff, thankfully that ended after like, the second episode.
The Russia stuff was a little boring imo it would have been cooler if Hopper had escaped to the upside down or something, imo the Russia stuff ran its course in season 3 but the fight with the demogorgan was rad!
Aside from all of that this season has literally been the best, they kept the D&D tradition of naming the enemy after something D&D related except this time it was named after the character Vecna and given lore similar to a lich, but then there was even more of a twist when we found out that this villain was actually a real person who Eleven had fought a long time ago, number 1.
Max was amazing this season, she had my favourite scene of all time. Running for her life away from Vecna while Kate Bush’s “Running up that hill” played and her friends calling out to her, it was so tense but so good.
I’m really excited for the second part of stuff to be released, in my honest opinion this has been my favourite season so far!
