Im through episode 5 and I am really not digging Hopper at all this season. I was ready to give them a pass on the episode 1-3 stuff but damn he’s a real whiny asshole in 4&5. Almost as bad as season 2 Mike but as a grown ass man. It’s actually got me not giving a fuck about his and Joyce’s plot and just wishing it would get back to the kids.
I was initially thinking there was too much Erica this season (she was GREAT last season, but she was used very sparingly), but it came back around and now I love her.
So Robin is Uma Thurman’s daughter and is also going to have a part in Once upon a time in Hollywood
The hopper letting the Russian go and they are playing it like he’s wrong is just gold...that scene is a 10/10.. best scene of the series so far.
The Body-snatcher/Mindflayer stuff is A+ to me. But I find the Russian Army stuff to be a little eye-rolling in a show that previously introduced these concepts in a way that was previously so clever in how it presented the mystery and conspiracy. I find myself repeating A. Ron's "Wouldn't you just call the cops" a bit too often. Guards with AKs not immediately prompting a 911 call being tops of the list. Still enjoying it, but if Steve single-handedly ends the cold war... ... ... actually, that would be pretty dope.
