Great stuff,

Indeed Ron. I was just thinking today that I'm ready to watch season 1 again.

I watched it by myself first. Then with the missus who swore she wouldn't like it - but of course she did. Then we watched it with our two oldest, 13 and 15. Great every time.

Trailer for second season got a little Cthulhu feel going on... and there ain't nothing wrong with that!
:D

Yeah, definitely an Old Ones/Cosmic Entity feel to the.new season. My only concern for the show is how many good seasons they'll be able to get. I almost feel like the writers may stop after the second season, not to mention with the age of the kids, once they get a few years older it might throw off the feel. If they could get at least one more, if not two, seasons before having to either wrap up or introduce new characters, I'll be happy.

If the writers run out of good, compelling ideas for the series then I''m A-OK with it ending. Going out on a high point is a good thing! No need to try and force stories or just wing it and try to pull a rabbit from a hat a la the Battlestar Galactica remake in seasons 3 and 4 or Buffy seasons 6 and 7.

With that being said, I'm definitely looking forward to Stranger Things season 2!

I may wait a few weeks for the play I'm in to wrap some episodes build up for binge watching.
