We temper our earlier praise for Stranger Things as the season comes to a close while remembering to give credit where it's due. In various digressions and mess-arounds, Jon spoils several modern film classics, Megan flirts with starting a cult, and we discuss X-Man Jubilee's social circle.
Stranger Things makes a big critical leap in the middle of its second season, and we're back to discuss the resonant themes and new character pairings. Ashli goes into minute detail about the shower scene, we speculate about next season's pregnancy subplot, and whoever can spot Ghost Shane wins a to-be-determined prize.
Stranger Things is back, and so is the MMC to discuss the latest boo-gans and scare-em-ups. As Jon, Ashli, Bobby, and Superfan Megan get reacquainted, sans spoilers, with the endearing kids and boring teens of Hawkins, Megan gets further away from officially joining the group, Jon refuses to add bleeps, and we talk about hated Halloween candies for about a half an hour.
