Have you seen "Intruders"?

I really liked the show. Very disappointed that it was canceled after one season.
Really talented cast, including MBB in her first large role.

I thought MBB did an outstanding job in ST conveying her character very realistically. I wonder how much "coaching" she received from the Directors in terms of details vs. her having some "intuitive" understanding of what a girl in that situation would likely be "feeling".

Season 3 is really good.

Uma Thurman's daughter looks so much like her.

The Mrs and I are not binging it; rather, we'll watch a couple of episodes and then spend some time talking about it.

Didn't catch Thurman's daughter was there; but that also answers part of the feeling I had of "why does she look familiar?".

I do like some of the new themes (regarding real life) being explored in addition to the mystery of the "stranger things" taking place.

Only negative thing to me in Season 3 was that Cary Elwes seemed a bit underutilized. I was really excited to see that he was added to the show, but then he was really just a minor character.

Rained all day yesterday, so no real 4th activities, so we finished it in about 12 hours.

I've only watched the first two episodes. Really enjoying the direction they're going with this, so that it's not just spooky/creepy all the time. The humor and the character development are a welcome improvement.

The first episode was a dumb semi-homage to 80's teen movies.

We've watched 4 episodes so far, and I'm pretty 'meh' about the whole thing.

Question about ep 4:
Spoiler:
If Billy and the old lady got all stressed out, didn't the other people who are hosts go through he same thing? Or were most of them in that basement?

Did Hopper get fat since the last season? He looks terrible.
