Stranger Things has been a worldwide success, so much so that it has become the most binge watched show on Netflix. Which was great news for the shows creators the Duffer brothers, Ross and Matt, as they were keen to get people hooked on season 1. One year later they wrote and filmed season 2 and once again it was binged watched within days. And now that season 3 has dropped on Netflix, the creators are asking us to calm our farms somewhat.
It took two years to get season 3 written and filmed which is one year longer than it took for season 2. And yet here we are again with fans saying they watched the entire season 3 in one day – with one man watching Stranger Things 3 in fast motion just so he can say on Facebook he watched it first.
“First!” said uber fan Adam Welsh, known online as ‘Darth Satan.’
“I was worried that someone else would watch the series before me and spoil it on Facebook. And now that I know how it ends before they do, I can’t wait to get online and spoil it for everyone else.”
The other issue the shows creators face is the fact that the adorable cast of kids from season one are now turning into awkward geeky teenagers. While Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) just seems to get cuter with age, Mike (Finn Wolfhard) has turned into a cross between the geeky-but-lovable Paul Pfeiffer, on the popular 80s TV series The Wonder Years, and Marilyn Manson – who many have claimed is the same person anyway.
