The Beginning of a New Season
1 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Near the Halloween, Mike, Dustin, Lucas and Will find that Dustin´s score in an Arcade game has been beaten by someone with the nickname MadMax. They believe the newcomer in school Maxine is the player. Hopper investigates what has happened to pumpkins that have been poisoned and the owner blames his neighbor. Will has visions from the Upside Down and he goes with Joyce and Hopper to a clinic for medical examination.

"Chapter One: MADMAX" is the weak beginning of a new season of "Stranger Things". So far, nothing is happening but Will´s visions and the intriguing appearance of El in the end of the episode. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Chapter One: MADMAX"
