Stranger Things 2 Review - Bigger, Stranger, Better?
November 24, 2017 12:02 PM PST
This week on the podcast we review the second series (or is it sequel?) of Netflix's Stranger Things.
Along the way we discuss how far down the Upside Down rabbit hole we'd go to win someone's affection, show how easy it is for an unlikeable character to redeem themselves with an even less likeable character on the show, and why one of the episodes might have been better as a DVD extra.
Lastly we give our Screen Verdict ratings and preview some upcoming podcasts in a quick Housekeeping segment.
