With a tighter, slightly shorter run of eight episodes that manages to tap every emotional vein of childhood (even for those who didn’t grow up in the ’80s) while leaking more monsters from the Upside Down, Season 3 is a roller coaster that never lets up.
Combining the best of the first season with comedy and color, Stranger Things 3 is a warm, summer hit.
