It's not a perfect season but I really enjoyed it and felt enoughly different in a good way than the previous two.
I like the new settings (Starcount) and new characters (Robin !). I also like Spoilers the way the band and couples are falling apparts (but of course at the end they will be happily reunited.) This offered a new dynamic into the characters.
However some things are a bit over the top, maybe it was already the case in the previous seasons and didn't really notice, but maybe it seems to be accentuated this time.
Spoilers Steve enduring tortures better than James Bond, chidren chilling and speaking out loud while infiltrating a dangerous Russian base. Also this cumulation of "Look I/we arrive at the very best moment in the very last minute to save you from this very critic and deadly situation"
Maybe it's nitpicking and should watch the next season without taking attention of those kind of things. After all it was never supposed to be realistic and serious, the series is an hommage of the typical 80's family-friendly films (but with gores elements in it haha). Still those little things were a bit off-putting for me.

I honestly LOVED Season 3 and have nothing to say against it. Maybe some people were expecting something different, but all I wanted was another love letter to the 80's with a brilliant cast and some crazy-ness. And that's exactly what I got.

This was the best season. Thoroughly enjoyed it it's so flawless I keep thinking about rewatching it. The addition of Erica and Robin is amazing

I love this serie sooooo much. My fav character is Robin.

In these days I can't stop watching the Neverending Story scene between Dustin and Suzie.
Anyway I don't know if I'd like to see Suzie again in Season 4. She has been a perfect 3 min icon. I hope the Duffer Brothers don't ruin her.

I love how they wrote Steve's character. He could have been such a one-off jerk high school boy, and they made him interesting and sympathetic. And funny.

I finished it recently and my only issue was I think the fact that for a big part of the season the cast is split up. Fair enough, this is explained by the relatively short time-frame, but it felt a bit like this was to accommodate some scheduling issue between the cast members and I just wanted them to be together for a bit more throughout the story.

I understand some of the comments regarding the show losing it's magic, you can tell it became a bit self-aware, plus I thought season 3 had some troubles deciding the tone, but they still have some room left to continue and improve.

That being said, I'm very impressed by the scale of the season, some big sets and scenes featuring crowds of extras add a lot.
