Stranger Things

Given all the hype surrounding Deadpool 2, it’s a casting choice that fans are hungry to know the most. It’s been said since the post credits of Deadpool 1 that the time-traveling, cybernetic, mutant known as Cable will be teaming up with Pool. It’s pretty much a given that the Deadpool 2 production team will be pulling out all the stops to cast Cable and teas fans relentlessly about it until the ink dries on the contract for whomever they decide on.  In the mean time, fans can continue to fantasize at all the actors who’ve cropped up. Names like Stephen Lang (Avatar), Keira Knightley (Pirate of the Carribean), Dolph Lundgren (Rocky IV), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and Pierce Brosnan (James Bond). Only the latter two have reportedly been eyed by Fox.

Now another name has entered the mix. One that the Deadpool pool creative team and studio is supposedly really behind.  (more…)

When the first season of Stranger Things came to a close, it tied up all the loose ends in such a way that it would have been satisfactory if that was all there was to it. The questions that did remain at the end – those slugs that Will Byers coughed into the sink, for instance – were tantalising enough that there was plenty to build upon, but subtle enough that it wouldn’t have kept anyone up at night wondering what it meant for the story. Still, fans all over the world were relieved to learn that there were future seasons coming when it was announced barely a month after the show’s debut. (more…)

As a Patriots fan and a fan of Stranger Things, this was the best thing to happen during the game. Sadly it wasn’t the touchdown that the team finally scored late in the third quarter. It was, however, the Stranger Things trailer for the second season. This is probably an over-exaggeration, but if the Patriots manage to come back from this terrible deficit, it’ll still be better than that. One of the biggest reasons – seeing the kids dressed up as The Real Ghostbusters.

Stranger Things, last year’s nostalgia-driven cultural phenomenon is already coming back for a second season. After all, we need to see more of Eleven, the guys, and the Upside Down, right? Plus Barb need justice! The second season of the show is currently in production and the cast and crew are hard at work bringing us 9 new episodes this summer (hopefully).

Part of what made Stranger Things such a resounding success was the way it dripped with pure nostalgia. Reminiscent of all those shows and movies about how the friendship of children can conquer any darkness they might stumble across in the rural woods and a tribute to the era’s great horrors, it was a throwback to a simpler sort of story. In case you needed an extra dose of that Stranger Things magic before the second season comes to screens later on this year, Netflix has released a quirky little 8-bit video game to keep you occupied.

It’s a terribly kept secret that there’s too much good TV to watch; for every series you manage to finish watching, there’s two more already queued up and ready to binge. It’s an embarrassment of riches, as in you’re embarrassed when people ask you if you’ve seen the hot new show and you’re forced to answer “no” because, hey, there are only so many hours in a day… That’s what you need semi-professional critics for. In reviewing the last 12 months, and looking at the plethora of sci-fi, superhero, horror, and other genre TV shows, we’ve paired it all down to a Top 10. Here, in our humble estimation, are the Top 10 Nerdy TV Shows of 2016! (more…)

We cannot get enough of Stranger Things! The Netflix sleeper hit that came this summer gave us the perfect storm of nostalgia, sci-fi, horror, and just good old storytelling done well! It’s no surprise that the show would get greenlit for a second season as we want to see what will happen in the lives of Will, Mike, Eleven, and the gang as more mysteries of the Upside Down get explored. We already know that most of the gang will be returning for the second season, and the show will also be adding three new characters on the show named Max, Billy, and Roman. The show already had 80’s heavyweight Winona Ryder, and it looks like they will be adding a few more heavyweights for the second season.

While historically some of its movie libraries have not been so great, Netflix has been killing it with its original Series programming. With such dynamic shows as House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, and Bojack Horseman, the streaming service is slowly becoming a TV powerhouse with just as many (if not more) subscriptions as HBO and other premium channels. Of course, you can’t forget their partnership with Marvel Television bringing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and it will soon bring Iron Fist and The Defenders next year. But Netflix once again changed the game with Stranger Things.

When season one of Stranger Things came to a close, the final episode gave audiences a glimpse into everyone’s lives who had been effected by the events inside of Hawkins, Indiana. The boys went back to playing Dungeons and Dragons in their basement, the guy did not get the girl, and Eleven’s fate had been left opened to interpretation. However, what many have assumed has now been confirmed, Eleven will be back for season two of Stranger Things and that Millie Bobby Brown will reprise her roll as the frozen, breakfast food lover. Keep in mind, there might be spoilers inside if you haven’t seen the first season.
