Stranger Things S4 - "There really is nothing like it!"
Show Notes

TV-SHOW DISCUSSION: 

Did you finish Stranger Things S4 yet? Melvin and Daniel have. Tune in to hear them chat about that crazy new season, volumes 1 and 2, and their predictions for S5! And yes, we go full spoilers right from the start.

Topics: 

  • (PATREON EXCLUSIVE) 50-minutes of Melvin talking about his live-changing first-time watching the WWE, and a brief aside about Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life. (PATREON EXCLUSIVE)
  • Explaining the over-arching details of the massive Season 4 plotline.
  • Melvin felt this season clarified some in-world details he was curious about since Season One, as well as introduced a much needed fatal-threat to the franchise as opposed to each season's antagonistic figure being more of a cautiously curious violent figure.
  • The final episode felt more like a mid-movie low-point than a right-and-true finale, but that makes sense considering The Duffer Brothers couldn't do everything they wanted without needing a Season 5.
  • The "Fan-favorite character dies" curse might need to be broken in Season 5, because it was more annoying this time around than ever before.
  • How does Daniel feel about every episode being over an hour long?
  • What songs would save us from Vecna on our Spotify Upside-Down Playlist (and what songs aren't)?
  • Various theories about Season Five including Max being a puppet villain, spending far more time in the Upside-Down, and an Escape From New York-esque Hawkins treated like a retro 80's post-apocalyptic flick.
  • Melvin's fan-theory S5E1 idea that he's locking in.
