Season 4 of Stranger Things is a massive undertaking for fans of this beloved series. What began as a loving tribute to genre films of the 1980s has grown into a tangled web of government intrigue, Cold War paranoia, and the dirty underbelly of suburban America.
There are plenty of incredibly cool and haunting elements of Season 4, but perhaps more so than any of the previous seasons, it's also frustrating. Fan-favorite characters are relegated to pointless storylines, villains are turned on and off like a light switch, and the young protagonists just spin their wheels as they wait for the story to catch up.
Even if you're the world's most forgiving Strange Things fan, some of the following decisions had to stick in your craw. Vote up the choices that made you wish you'd never heard of the Upside Down.
