Stranger Things season 2 was fire emoji but last season I complained about 7 arbitrary things so I might as well run that back this season and do it again. This show isn’t perfect like Dustin’s new teeth, grrrr. But it’s better than 99% of the other garbage on television. If there are people out there that would rather watch Fuller House than Stranger Things, I need their homes raided asap. There is for sure a shallow grave in the backyard.
Anyway, here are 7 things that really bothered me about Stranger Things Season 2 (spoilers…obviously):
1. Dustin isn’t cute anymore
The Stranger Things kids were beloved after season 1. They were everywhere. Anytime you turned your television on or picked up a magazine, Millie Bobbie Brown was posing and Finn Wolfhard was playing the guitar or whatever.
But I am exhausted from Dustin in particular as he was an asshole all season long. One of his best friends was captured in the Upside Down and nearly died there. So when Will says ‘hey, um, that new pet you have is 1000% from the Upside Down, you know, that place where I was almost murdered last year’, fuuuuck Dustin for not immediately smashing ‘Dart’ into a million pieces.
Am I supposed to feel bad for this selfish kid when no girl wants to dance with him at the end? Dustin tried to cockblock my mans, Lucas, all season long so quick shout out to Lucas for hooking up with Mad Max at the dance. LETS GOOOO. EATTTT, my brotha. Lucas gets a family AND and a girlfriend this year? What a win. Plus, she’s a redhead with daddy issues? I bet the homie Lucas got laid that very same night.
But yea, Dustin is an asshole.
