Picked up the Blue Ray/DVD of this show yesterday. In less than 10 minutes I was hooked! The kid with the missing teeth is hilarious, and Wynona Ryder acts up a storm!

I've been hearing really good things about this show and the merchandise is everywhere. Spirit Halloween even had  a whole wall dedicated to the show. I've been thinking of buying it on blu-ray and these comments are making it a much easier decision. If it can be met with such universal appeal to a community of monster lovers, there must be something good about it.

Has anyone seen the Target Exclusive Blu-ray/DVD combo yet? I picked it up on Friday. I love the vintage VHS design. Plus it comes with a limited edition poster to boot.



The disks are kept in the "VHS Tape."

Season 2 was just as good as Season 1.  In fact, I think I may have liked it more.  Didn't like the episode that took place outside of Hawkins, but I see why we kind of needed it.  Can't wait for Season 3 and beyond!

I am about half way through season 2 and so far I am enjoying more than season 1, which is a pleasant surprise as pretty much all of my friends had told me it was a bit of a let down. I'm finding the humour much funnier too. A great series.

I agree.  I have no idea why people are saying it's a letdown.  It was better.

Gonna watch the last two episodes of S2 tonight. Totally dig this show. I'm actually a little depressed there are only two more episodes to watch.

When I watched the first two episodes of season 1 I didn't really care for the show.  I then gave it a second chance and quickly became addicted as the season went on.  Season 2 was good, however, I really thought the final episode was a let down.  Hopefully season 3 will explain a little more.

Watched first 6 episodes of season 3. Pretty awesome as expected. Gonna finish up tonight.

I see some fun tributes so far: John Carpenter's The Thing, Jaws, Halloween II, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Terminator . . .

And is it just me or is Cara Buono a smoking hot milf? Are we allowed to say that word here btw?  :-\

Season 3 was, far and away, the best season.  My favorite characters: Steve and Nancy.  The whole thing was absolutely incredible.  Wish they'd make these seasons a lot faster.  I don't know how old the kids are supposed to be in S3, but they are almost ready to graduate high school IRL.
