All in all, it was a powerful story but one that would have made a better impact had Disney not dilly dallied on greenlighting the movie and released it before the final two Avengers films. Natasha deserved better. And this movie simply twisted the knife deeper into our hearts.
As I’ve said, Stranger Things 2 had a different appeal from the first mainly because the first season established how Eleven became part of the party that destroyed the threat looming over Hawkins. This time around, the series took time to establish relationships of its other characters.
