November’s almost upon us, which means it’s once again time for us to once again sit and watch the Charlie Brown specials for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. These specials are a somewhat of a cultural event giving us a blast from the past and fill us with nostalgia. Another cultural event that recently gave us a mega dose of nostalgia was the critically acclaimed Netflix series, Stranger Things.
It doesn’t seem so long ago that kids would run to the weekend newspaper in order to pull the full-color comic section, does it?

Kids may be coming to Charlie Brown and Company for the first time, or they may know him solely through annual Halloween and Christmas specials. Their parents, meanwhile, will recall reading those old strips, and collecting the paraphernalia on lunch boxes and the like. No matter your age though, The Peanuts Movie will definitely appeal. It’s a true all-ages delight without sarcasm or cynicism. (more…)

ABOVE: There will always be a Stark in winterfell – they just never figured it would be one wearing half a billion dollars around his body.

John Carpenter took the cast of MTV’s Teen Wolf (Don’t get me started) and put them into the reboot we have all been waiting for, The updated Peanuts Halloween Special – Charlie Brown: Blockhead’s Revenge. Pent up rage can be a real bitch.
