Finished the show some time ago, just now getting around to posting about it. I really dug it and found it to be very well-paced, eight episodes felt just right. David Harbour's performance as Jim Hopper was impressive, I really enjoyed his scenes.
It is interesting to hear that a second season is on the way. I'll check it out but I am hoping the quality remains high, and that they aren't overexhausting their creativity too soon.
Many folks on the internet have brought up how the Barb character was handled overall, and I pretty much agree with the sentiment.
|Man, I've been hearing nothing but good things about this show, but I don't have Netflix. Do streaming exclusive shows ever get DVD releases after they've been on their respective streaming services for a sufficient amount of time, or am I essentially asking if paid-tier of Spotify gives you the option to 3D print a wax cylinder?
My best guess is that it's going to be a Netflix exclusive for a very long time, especially due to their increasing attention (and financial dedication) to creating original content. However, I could be wrong! Arrested Development season 4 is, to my memory, one of their first "original creations" and it was released on DVD (however, this may be because that show started on a TV network).
The show was released in July 2016. If you aren't seeing DVDs within a year, or before the release of season 2, I'd imply that it's going to remain exclusive to Netflix streaming.
