Matthew and Josh join Jessica and Dean for a special four-way discussion about season two’s finale. Matthew reads a passage out of “Heart of Thunder” (Ms. Wheeler’s romance novel), Josh and Dean debate the use of Billy, and Jessica ensures we miss no details as we plow forward. Thanks again to everyone who joined us for another excellent season of Stranger Things. We’ll see you for season three!
“Dig Dug” may be the best episode of Season Two. Dean and Jessica make the point that “things happen” and those things are perfectly timed. There has been plenty of set-up, sub-plot, and character growth. The Duffer brothers continue to be capable show runners who can weave all the lines together into a tightly knit story. For a season with plenty of high points, Dig Dug may stand alone versus the previous four chapters. What do you think?
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.
