Although the Humvee was introduced into military service in 1984, the desert camouflage seen on the Humvee units was not utilized domestically in 1984. Instead, this type of camouflage was only used on vehicles in countries such as Egypt where the US Military conducted desert warfare training at the time. See more »

This season of Stranger Things just took over everything on TV this fall...
27 October 2017 | by (Boston, MA, United States) – See all my reviews

Oh My goodness!! these 9 hours just made 2017 a whole lot better for TV . for me the first couple of episodes started a bit confusing but filled with thrill and mystery but from that point it all picked up to a new plot level of brilliance.

Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (the writers/creators) seriously outdone themselves the plot this season looks as strong as ever, the episodes become more and more connected to create one hell of masterpiece mosaic .. if this show was created back in the 80's/90's it would've been a TV revolution.

The sequence of events each episode always kept on leaving us with one surprise after another ... I salute them that this season they didn't put all the focus on " Eleven's" character but showed much more of the other characters, they all appeared like lead characters in The struggle of the mighty.,. each character/couple of characters had their own main plot of a "strange thing" that all lead to "Rome".

That kid Noah Schnapp "Will Byers" this season he showed he is one big talent , last season he was just that lost kid, but my !! his facial expression !! his acting and engaging with the scenes was so real. David Harbour "Jim Hopper" was also so good and had his own big bite of the pie ,, same goes for Winona Ryder as "Joyce Byers" and the couple Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton as "Nancy and Jonathan"... but overall the whole cast and crew were awesome. Also still love Gaten Matarazzo "Dustin" with his "Son of b!tch" moments .. they were like a breeze of fresh air in all of that tense jumpy events,

A side note, still loving the cinematography and the Amaaazing soundtracks that "in my opinion" surpassed the X-files level.

Final thought, Standing O for every one helped making this artwork and fingers crossed with these next two seasons renewals ,, the level of thrill and mystery will keep on going because i will count them day by day till the next season comes out next year.
