I listened to The Watch and they seem to think there's a time travel element to this.  I don't know.  I'm over time travel and multiple time lines on shows.

Uma Thurman's daughter is cute

she’s not half as good looking as her mother, and her body isn’t comparable at all.  I’d call her a disappointment.

Still one of the the creepiest and coolest opening sequences.

SIAP any of these links...realized I’d never checked the thread here and got hooked reading how the title came about

This is a great read on that very thing...how it came together: https://www.artofthetitle.com/title/stranger-things/

What’s remarkable to me is how it’s all text/title, and grabbed me initially as the font is just slightly modified from the titles of so many King books I grew up reading.

somebody tell me why a shotgun is less effective than fireworks in terms of energy and stopping power?

She's playing an 80's kid that works in an ice cream shop vs. Real Life-

And for the record I think she looks a lot like her mother.

I gave up watching season 2.  Couldn't stay engaged.  3>1>2

 

I finished season 2 but it was painful. They knocked season 3 out of the park.

It's the heat, not the impact is my guess.

Ed Zachary, also the potential to catch parts of the creature on fire, doing more damage. Now a slug shot to the right spot would do more damage.

She does, but Uma was 18 when The Adventures of Baron Munchausen released, and she was much more smoke. I blame Ethan.

Given that the songs in the main trailer appears to have a correlation to the theme of each season (Thriller with the hounds of hell for season 2 and Baba O'riley with the teenage wasteland for season 3) the song for this trailer is Sweet Dreams. Thusly, if the equation holds season 4 then dreams will play a big part of the seaso arc. Drawing from Nightmare on Elm Street would possibly be at play in addition to Chernobyl.

So they're going to travel back in time?  Gonna be funny when Barb makes a cameo.

Or they go forward in time and Barb has grown up, changed her name to Janet, and become Attorney General of the United States

I have a cousin who is close with a bigwig at Netflix. Apparently, season 4 is going to focus exclusively on the emerging sexual relationship between Nancy and Uma Thurman’s daughter.

Check the YouTube account. That’s a fan made trailer. It’s not real.

Well played.  I mean, his manual training in Siberia is beyond reminiscent of Rocky IV which as we all remember comes out at the very end of 1985.  which is where Season 3 leaves off in this series.  $50 says Winona manages to sneak in country and surprises him and he pulls her along in some sort of makeshift wagon in the snow.

When does it air? I can't find that any where on the internets.

My guess is October. We got July, October, July for the first 3 seasons.

Yeah they just went ahead and put it out there that he's alive.  No reason to hide it.  Kind of weak if you ask me, but the show is better with him on it.

Maybe, but if they go the Silence of the Lambs route, it works better. Meaning, the audience knows that Buffalo Bill is the killer but detectives don’t. It provides more suspense. 

In this scenario, the audience knows Hopper is alive but his loved ones don’t. So the audience is rooting for them to find each other. The will they/won’t they reunite storyline gets the audience more emotionally involved

Oh of course, I don't disagree on any that.

I just think it's kind weak they didn't go through with killing him off(even though we all pretty much knew they wouldn't)

It's called Dramatic Irony, and it supposedly it first appears in literature and film just one year before "The Silence of the Lambs" hits theaters.  ;)

Were they not trying to kill Hopper in the fight by the giant machine? But then they just decide to ship him to Siberia?

Also, I had forgotten the final scene as described by wiki: "In Kamchatka, Russian guards are instructed to feed a prisoner, but "not the American", to a captive Demogorgon."

He got sucked into the other side of the gate before it closed, which was in Russia.
