I mean... the answer is probably just that it’s fun entertainment.

Though I have heard that people like Avengers because it takes their mind off this generations breakdown of the nuclear family, and emotional ripples this change will have on generations to come.

Or.. y’know... it’s neat.

(All in good fun)
Isn’t that the same thing but you just left out the because.

I like escapist fun becuase ....

Fun fact, The Neverending Story theme was composed by Giorgio Moroder, considered to be the father of disco, and the source of many many 80's synth staples that inspire modern synthwave that is featured in the show.

Finally binged the whole season this weekend. I think season 3 is by far my favourite season. I loved the return to horror - the mind flayer was terrifying and totally disgusting. I also found that this season was a LOT more graphic than its previously been. The last episode had me crying, it was all so perfectly executed. Going to go back and watch season one again!

I liked it because it did get darker and grittier and things like Dustin 'dating' a Mormon girl and Steve working a dead-end ice-cream job after High School and Mike's mom wanting to cheat on his dad with some sleazy lifeguard really helped the Mind-Flayer slam home to these naive and idealistic children that life is really just an endless series of crushing disappointments one after another no matter how old you get.

I thought it was great! Lots of fun. Maybe not as fresh as the first season but definitely a step up from S2.
