It's Stranger Things 2!

John and myself talk about Stranger Things 2, we mostly liked it! It's not without it's problems
But even despite episode 7, this season is pretty awesome, and fixes a lot (though not all) of the problems we had with the first season. 

The thing that excites me the most is the Lovecraftian horror that informs the monsters of this series. I throughout the name Nyarlathotep in this podcast, the Nerdist suggests it as inspiration as well. Now is it Nyarlathotep? I'm with John -though I think the idea is cool- it would be better, and cooler if the Duffer brothers are only inspired by the Lovecraftian monstrousity and not stealing whole cloth from it. 

We do talk about a few insane fan theories a bit, (my favorite is still that the "Mindflayer" is Barb taking revenge on the town) the only theory that has any traction is the theory that the Upside Down is somehow in another time.  It's a fun theory. 

We are both looking forward to season 3.
