Drop in quality aside, the second season adds a delightful new dynamic and shifts the focus to characters who really needed fleshing out.

Stranger Things 2 feels like an old Demodog who's incapable of learning new tricks.

It felt unfocused, without a clear major threat, and with new characters that felt unrealized and half-baked.

In its second season, Stranger Things feels more like scattered things.

For a show that doesn't work overtime to wow you with original ideas, tamping down its one undeniably unique trait hardly seems like a winning formula.

No one wants to stay at a party that long, and it's worth pointing out that no classic '80s movie mentioned in this review ran over two hours. No one will complain if Stranger Things 3 rips off the concept of brevity.
