Stranger Things Trivial Pursuit
How does a Stranger Things fan pass the time during this prolonged break between seasons? Rewatching previous seasons of our beloved show is certainly an excellent option. Another excellent option is playing Stranger Things Trivial Pursuit with other Stranger Things fans! We recently teamed up with a few of the listeners of our podcast, started a Facebook Live broadcast, and played Stranger Things Trivial Pursuit. We had a wonderful time and recorded the whole thing so we could bring it to you in podcast form. We hope you have fun playing along!
Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights
Earlier this month we visited Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. Featured among this seasonal attraction are haunted houses, or mazes, from some of our favorite TV and film franchises. The biggest franchise for us is the Stranger Things maze. While not much changed with this years maze vs. last year's maze, we still found the experience to be very enjoyable.
We also enjoyed mazes themed for Ghostbusters, Jordan Peele's "Us," Frankenstein vs. the Wolf Man, Pandora's Box, Holidayz in Hell, and we enjoyed some delicious Stranger Things themed food!
The best part of all was spending the day with Katrina, one of our podcast listeners!
We spent the next couple of days at Disneyland with podcast listeners Jeremiah, JJ, Blake, and Rachel. While no Stranger Things tie-ins could be found at Disney, we still spend time discussing our time at those parks and the fun times we shared with listeners.
The Battle of Starcourt
Eleven is weak. The parasite inside her leg is making things worse. They have to get it out. Jonathan springs into action and finds a knife. The small creature burrows deeper into her tissue. Eleven pushes through the pain and takes control of the situation. She uses her mental might to rip the tiny terror from her flesh. Can they all live happily ever after now? Unfortunately, no, this is only the prelude to the battle to come.
Did you hear that? Was that the fireworks? Billy said the Monster can see Eleven. I think he is right and it has found the kids! Seconds later the creature’s vast tentacles burst through the walls of the cabin. El uses her considerable power to push the Mind Flayer back over and over. Her friends fight to help her. They shoot and chop at the vicious thing. Ultimately they succeed and the Monster retreats but not before it manages to take a bite.
This is a code red. I repeat a code red. There are innocent children trapped by Russian soldiers under Star Court Mall. That’s right under this completely innocent shopping establishment is a secret Russian base. What is lurking underneath the oblivious shoppers of Hawkins? Does it have anything to do with the Upside Down?
The Sauna Test
Some like it hot. The Mind Flayer does not. Eleven is worried that there is something wrong with Billy. Max says wrong is Billy’s default setting, but El can’t get what happened out of her mind. She closed the gate. There should not be any monsters left in Hawkins. Something still seems off. As dawn breaks Lucas is calling a code red. Maybe Eleven is right. Strange things continue in this town.
Honestly I really think that when Bob from season 2 died in that hospital by the demidogs I thought that was the saddest part in the entire stranger things era and he was basically the hero that saved everyone in that hospital and he risked his life and will always be remembered by everyone
