Stranger Things: Season Two (Netflix) discussion brought to you by Overlord - Overlord - 02-09-2017

Season Two will be here before you know it.  Watch out hipsters!




- MrSaxon - 06-18-2017

Guys, the executive producer of this show has some bad news that will devastate everyone.

















Barb isn't coming back.




- DerekM - 06-18-2017

It must've been something you said.




- freeman - 06-18-2017

Fuck Barb.



Yeah I said it.  She deserved to die.




- avian - 06-18-2017

And I hope she burns in Hell!




- headless fett - 06-18-2017

I didn't mind Barb like some of you heartless bastards but I figured she was quite dead so it's no surprise she's not coming back.




- Mangy - 06-19-2017

I've watched this thing a couple of times now, and . . .



Why did anybody give a shit about Barb at all?




- MrSaxon - 06-19-2017

You people and your anti-Barb sentiments shock and appall me.




- Mangy - 06-19-2017

That's not an answer.




- MrSaxon - 06-19-2017

I.....uh. WAIT. What's the fuck is THAT THING behind you, Mangy?



*Points in horror*
















*Slowly slides to the right, through the thread door*




- Richard Dickson - 06-19-2017

I liked Barb just fine.  Just don't see the need to bring her back.




- headless fett - 07-22-2017

This is the best trailer you'll see all day:






So good.

I don't want to wait another three months for this!  Looks terrific, and bonus points for the Vincent Price/"Thriller" stuff.




- bailey - 07-22-2017

Really great editing to Thriller in that trailer, but it's also overdosing on nostalgia porn.  Nevertheless, a very well put together couple minutes, all things considered.




- Richard Dickson - 07-22-2017

Whoever put that thing together isn't making enough money, because there's still some in my bank account.

The difference being that this nostalgia has heart to it.



Unlike that READY PLAYER ONE trailer.

Liked both trailers myself.




- MichaelM - 07-22-2017

I liked both, too!



STRANGER THINGS S2 looks fantastic.




- headless fett - 07-22-2017

You're allowed to like both. I just find this one to be much more exciting and real than the other.




- bailey - 07-22-2017

Personally I don't find anything this obviously calculated to hit certain notes to be "real."  However, that doesn't mean it's bad.  As I said at the time, for the most part Stranger Things worked as intended.  I really enjoyed it.  It's what Abrams tries to do, but done well.  But it never for a second felt authentic.




- turingmachine75 - 07-22-2017

A"It's Abrams done well." That's the perfect way to describe Stranger Things.


- Overlord - 07-22-2017




- bailey - 07-22-2017

Ridiculous.  I don't wear scarves.




- bailey - 07-22-2017

Or plunging v-necks, for that matter.




- Teitr Styrr - 07-22-2017

Looks great!

I got the same vibe. Like they double downed on the "look" of the show BECAUSE of its popularity.


- catartik - 07-22-2017

AYeah I turned this off once that Dragon's Lair screen popped up.

This show is so fake ugh.

Should it be called Booger Things, it's so "on the nose?"




- catartik - 07-22-2017

ABrilliant!

This show is something that the writers of the Big Bang Theory would have the characters write on the Big Bang Theory.

Do you remember Dragon's Lair? Yes I'm not senile.

Saving throw vs false statement based on horribly flawed reasoning!



*throws D20*



FAILED.




- turingmachine75 - 07-22-2017

AWIS check.

I had a feeling you'd like the "Booger Things" joke.




- Iron Maiden - 07-22-2017

Looks fun.  I caught Survive, the band that does the main theme last weekend, and it definitely got me in the mood for another season.




- Paul755 - 07-23-2017

AThat was a fantastic trailer. Can't wait.
