2-4: Stranger Things “Chapter Four: Will the Wise”

Jessica and Dean are back at it again and they jump right into the aftermath of Will’s encounter with the “Shadow Monster” that apparently has invaded Will’s psyche. Yikes. We also talk about Billy the racist, Hopper’s aggressive parenting, and an interesting encounter in the Hawkins Lab.

2-3: Stranger Things “Chapter Three: The Pollywog”

Jessica and Dean bring Matthew onto this week’s episode and the trio dive deep into “The Pollywog”. They all share some concerns for Dustin, but are largely optimistic about his storyline for the season long-haul. The protagonists continue to be agents of action (see: Nancy, and Eleven). They do things. They make decisions and we approve. Matthew begs the show to stop making him watch Eleven cry, and the gang speculates on what types of life lessons that Hopper will teach Eleven. Plenty to discuss this week! Thanks again to Matthew for joining us!

#223: Dawn of the Dead (1978)

Dean shocks Matthew by revealing to him that he has never seen Dawn of the Dead, and doesn’t revere George Romero like most people seem to do. Dean does start to understand the appeal towards the end of the episode. Apparently, Matthew’s unabashed enjoyment of this flick got Dean’s attention, like a well-timed zombie bite (yuck yuck). The lads get into the zombie sub-genre quite a bit, but don’t worry, they talk about ghosts, werewolves, and vampires too. Push play, sit back, and put your hands in your pants — we won’t judge.

2-2: Stranger Things “Chapter Two: Trick or Treat, Freak”

This week Dean watches the right episode, and both Jessica and Dean agree that this was another strong showing. Stranger Things continues to do what it does well: develop great interpersonal relationships, and this week it is Eleven and Hopper that shine. Jessica says she hates Billy, but Dean is predicting a mid-season turnaround on her feelings for Billy. What do you think? Will Jessica 180 on Billy? Will she fall for those tight blue jeans and devil-may-care attitude? Only time will tell.

8-2: The Walking Dead “The Damned”

The Walking Dead is back. This episode gets so outrageous that we are going to say very little in the show notes this week. Grab your zip ties, your colors, and prepare yourselves for hilarity… holmes.

Star Trek Discovery; Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad

Welcome to my recap of episode seven of Star Trek Discovery, Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad.

#222: Scream

The LSG Media team: Dean, Jessica, Matthew, Josh, Jon, Damaris, and Maria all picked suitable Halloween movies to cover, placed them in a poll, and our members voted in Scream — Jessica’s pick. Jessica also demanded that this podcast be a 4-way so she could properly gloat about her victory over the rest of the team, but in her defense it wouldn’t be proper Scream coverage without all of the hosts. The gang talks about the good parts of the movie, and then… Dewey. Sorry ladies, but Matthew, Dean, and Josh just can’t get behind the Dewey love, and you know it isn’t because of homophobia. These guys routinely shower man-love on their favorite hunks, but the boys just couldn’t handle Dewey and his Inspector-Gadget like incompetence. Tune in for tales of door socks, greasy hair, and ride with us through the drive-thru at McLillard’s.

2-1: Stranger Things “Chapter One: Madmax”

Stranger Things is back and so is The Hawkins Report! Did Dean watch the wrong episode? Does Jessica still have a “it’s complicated” relationship with Steve? Is Mr. Wheeler still a creep-show? Does the second season set up anything interesting? Is the chemistry still there with the kids? Is Samwise really making out with Winona? And finally, can anyone trust Paul “steal your pulse rifle and lock you in the med-lab so you can get impregnated by an alien” Reiser ever again?! All this and more on our long-anticipated return to Stranger Things.

6-3: The X-Files “Triangle”

Josh and Dean return after a lengthy hiatus and this week they are talking, Triangle. This episode has a lot to like including excellent editing, outstanding steadicam shots, a unique setting (The SS Queen Anne), and Nazi punching. This episode is part Wizard of Oz and part Indian Jones. Prepare yourself for some Arnie impersonations, Scully love, and some terrible phonetic German.

8-1: The Walking Dead “Mercy”

The Walking Dead is back. Dean’s TWD existential crisis continues. Matthew continues to be a beacon of hope against the fog of doubt. They lads talk recon missions, coordinated attacks, snipers, speeches, and armored (but not really) cars. The lads bat around the idea of Rick being as developed as he will ever be, and they ponder if the show could move on beyond him. If Rick dies does the show end? Plenty discussed on this week’s episode, so dive in and join the fray. Don’t be chased off by Dean’s “Negan should be dead!” rant.
