Wow vice, alllll that over one character, you hate the Barb attention that much.....?
I certainly don't hate Barb, but I am sure surprised at all the attention gets. Other than her storyline being very un-finished, she was just a stereotypical "stick in the mud" foil for Nancy (she was basically the Millie to Nancy's Lindsay from Freaks & Geeks).
Then again, the characters are as much an homage to the 80's TV & Movie tropes as the rest of it all was.
I think people, my age at least, are mostly reacting to the way Barb looked. She looks like all of my sisters teenage friends back in the late 70s early and early 80s.
Just finished the series. WOW!! LOVED IT!! There were certainly some segments where you had to really suspend disbelief (e.g. Nancy actually deciding to crawl into the tree/gate..I mean really Nancy?), but the show was really well done. A true credit to the writers and young actors that they could take so many previously used thematic elements and make them feel completely fresh.
Excited for season 2.
For those who finished the first season, are you happy the second season is said to be a continuation of the first or would you rather have an entirely new story line?
They need to have a definitive arc, and stick with it until it ends, and then end it. Sort of like you see with a lot of great BBC shows, that come and do what they intend to do and then end intentionally after 2 or 3 seasons. I said the same thing about Heroes, which started great and then they flogged it relentlessly.
I think it would be great to do two or three seasons, and then maybe move to a different story with different characters at a different place or time.

New season 2 poster...
The Stranger Things 2 poster hints at more ways the show will borrow from Stephen King
The Netflix series returns on October 27th
The second season of Stranger Things has an official release date: October 27th, just a few days ahead of the originally teased Halloween debut. What’s even more exciting, though, is the new poster for the series. Featuring the core cast (sans Eleven, of course) and the spooky monster from the first trailer, it’s a perfect homage to classic Stephen King.
Stranger Things would be nothing without its genre inspirations. The first season already pulled from the likes of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Poltergeist, and Firestarter, just to name a few. The next season will surely pay homage to other beloved works. The poster alone seems to be inspired by artwork from King works like The Stand, The Mist, and Stand By Me, all while looking like something new (and terrifying). We’ve included a handful of covers below for comparison.
Stephen King fans have a lot to look forward to. Stranger Things returns to Netflix this October.
