Stranger Things Creators Want You To Adjust Your TV Settings For Season 2

If you're planning to watch the second season of Stranger Things, the show's creators have one simple request.

Matt and Ross Duffer recently told Vulture that viewers with high-definition televisions should turn off a particular setting. "The key thing is to turn off anything that says 'motion,'" said Matt. "'TruMotion.' 'Smooth motion.'"

The setting they refer to is intended to reduce motion blur on HD TVs. However, it often leads to what's been called the "soap opera effect," which causes anything shot on film, like Stranger Things, to look as if it was shot on video like soap operas, game shows, and many sitcoms. Not everyone notices, but to purists like the Duffer brothers, it can be infuriating.

"Us and everyone in Hollywood puts so much time and effort and money into getting things to look just right," Matt said. "And when you see it in someone's home, it looks like it was shot on an iPhone... When I go to my friends' places back home, I'm constantly fixing their TVs."

Ross Duffer added that the issue is widespread. "It's shocking!" he said. "We were just at Comic-Con, and we walk on the main floor and the settings on every single TV is wrong. I was like, 'Didn't a bunch of nerds put this together? What is wrong with them?'"

Just make sure to make the change before the second season of Stranger Things comes to Netflix on Oct. 27. Meanwhile, find out what we know about the season so far.
