Every time I see Millie Bobby Brown, I get all worked up that she’s not doing red carpet photos with the rest of the Stranger Things cast — this happens enough that I think it’s a contractual thing, for which I, uh, credit her parents — and then I see her hanging out with them at the afterparties and they clearly all find each other delightful and great and then I feel better. I really enjoyed this season of Stranger Things. Even when it’s imperfect, it’s always ENJOYABLE, and the kids are so, so great. (I also loved that clearly someone, before they wrote this season, said, “you guys, we need someone who looks JUST like Rob Lowe in St Elmo’s Fire.) (Also I love Steve. Okay, I’m done with this tangent.)
