By the time the fireworks started popping on July 4th, most of you Strangers had finished bingeing Stranger Things season 3. My plan had been to hop right on here and write up my own review and have it in the queue to publish in the morning. 

What I wasn’t expecting was to be emotionally drained when the credits rolled. Each season of Stranger Things has left me bouncing off the walls, giddy as all get out and ready to rush into tons of discussion. This season left me “needing a moment” to get my thoughts together. 

So before I jump off into spoilers, I’ll give you this quick spoiler-free nugget: Stranger Things Season 3 is a triumph of storytelling. It’s on-par with the first season and, in some ways, surpasses the perfection of season one in its scope and themes. 

Now, if you haven’t watched Stranger Things Season 3, you might want to stop here and go watch it, because beyond here, there be spoilers, matey.

As a result of this close age range, I found myself feeling nothing but loathing for many of the characters. From Carrie herself to those who bullied and taunted her to her abusive mother. It seemed that none of the characters could escape my distaste.
