Not worth the time to watch
31 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the Worst (underlined, bold and in caps) episodes of TV I've ever watched. Horrible story line, terrible actors, no longer the Stranger Things I was watching in Season 1. All the good actors (the original cast) are missing...maybe that explains it. Does anyone remember The Legend of Billie Jean? Yeah, it has the same feeling.Yet another Hollywood sequel gone wrong. Total Waste of Time.
