John tears into the third season of Stranger Things, we touch on the plot points and the good and bad factors of each. Then we discuss themes, including the ordeal of change, the fear of the other and bullying. John goes over the problems he has with the characters of Hopper and Billy. Then it’s observations: 80’s action flick! There’s a lot of problems to the tone and plotting that the Duffer’s have to this genre, and John touches on several of them. For instance: how cliched the action plot is and how the quantification of the monster makes it less effective. Frank then brings up the issue of all the disappearances in the town of Hawkins that took place this season. John brings up two valid points: the nature and lopsidedness of Nancy and Charlie’s discussion about class struggle versus the sexism that Nancy faces. And 2nd… the product placement! Finally, it’s insane fan theories. Then they give their final thoughts on the season, and on the series, respectively.
“Yeah, it was shark-jumping action” -John
“He’s a corrupt politician in an action film, gone by the way of snidely whiplash.” – John
“Robin is everything that all of the people said Barb was.” -John
[Frank and John are trapped in a strange dimension and to pass the time they play Parks & Pugs. Fed up, John takes the balls away from Frank and uses them to transport them someplace else]
