I also dislike the regular overuse of the word "overated". More often than not its just a way of saying "I didn't like this as much as everyone else did", which doesn't make something overated.

Yup, 100% agree. I even questioned someone in a forum once where is he seeing the movie discussed is overrated.

"But just look at IMDB! They have that movie rated at 8.5! That's overrated!"

No...it's members voted their enjoyment level (or whatever other criteria they use) for that movie, and that produced an average level of 8.5. That's 'rated'....not overrated. The only way it would be overrated there, is if members voted an 8.5 on average for a given movie, but IMDB admins displayed a 9.0 rating for that given movie. .........Then, it would be overrated.

His diversionary response, "you're a virgin who lives in his mother's basement."  :laugh:

So, the word Overrated (is now overrated  :laugh:) has becomes old, tiresome and without imagination like Stranger Things 80's nostalgia? Ok then, Stranger Things is Overappreciated. I'm not going to explain why cos you guys are too biased for that.

Glad you enjoyed the show, though.

Touched a nerve I guess.

"over appreciated" "overrated" = "It's popular but I didnt enjoy it so the popular opinion is wrong."

What do I know though? I'm just biased because I enjoy the show   :P

I don't have a bias bone in my body!  :P

Seriously....while I'm not crazy about personally using the label overrated - unless in jest, I realize it's a popular figure of speech, albeit it holds no descriptive value. Much like.....'the worst movie ever!'

In my opinion, Stranger Things is like Star Wars: a really good movie, then the rest is overrated. I dig the haunting of hill house more.

I probably wouldn't describe season two and three as 'overrated,' but otherwise that's where I stand on the series also. For me, season one is the stand out, and holds significantly higher replay value over the other two.
I'm actually the opposite. I think ST has got better, and I think S3 is better than S2 is better than S1. I'm hoping that if there's an S4 it, continues the trend.
