Stranger Things season 3 is good, but it learned the wrong lessons from season 2's controversy.
1 / 11
Season 2 episode 7, "The Lost Sister", was strongly disliked by most viewers.
2 / 11
Focusing on Kali and her gang, it was a complete left-turn for the show.
3 / 11
It was tonally at odds with the rest, and halted the momentum late in the season.
4 / 11
Season 3 ignores this by completely ignoring "The Lost Sister"/
5 / 11
There's no reference to it, and it's like the episode never happened.
6 / 11
That's not a good thing though, because it means Stranger Things is scared to change.
7 / 11
It's still enjoyable, but it's largely just a repeat of season 2, minus episode 7.
8 / 11
Stranger Things should've found a different, better way of working in these plot threads rather than ignoring them.
9 / 11
It can still do this in season 4, and needs to embrace change if it's going to reach its full potential.
