Happy Monday!

It’s not a photo of the first script read-through, as was the case for the 2015 cinematic blockbuster The Force Awakens…

but Stranger Things just may be the television-equivalent for science-fiction fans these days regarding its popular ’80s nostalgic experience, which may validate its video release of their first table read for the highly-anticipated third season.

(see below)

The first table reads for The Force Awakens and the forthcoming third season of the Netflix phenomenon was photographed in black and white…three years apart…with no connection between the two aside from shared cultural popularity. Hmm?

Well, that’s a strange thing to see.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

Classic ’80s

The strangest thing you can do these days is probably not watching Stranger Things.

With the weekend here, binge-watching TV shows without the necessity of an alarm clock or work to-do lists for the following couple days (hopefully) has returned. And since Stranger Things 2 is still the hottest show on Netflix, it seems appropriate to combine the awesomeness of this Steven Spielberg and Stephen King-inspired cultural phenomenon set in the midwestern town of Hawkins during the 1980s with one of the show’s signature characteristics for this weekend’s impending viewings.

The ’80s synthesized sound from the Stranger Things theme song is perfectly translated into a classical music rendition? Boss. If there’s any doubt that things from the 1980s are timeless, these three cello players have put most of those concerns to rest with their performance seen above.

Before reading and watching this blog post, you probably would’ve thought the ’80s were just another decade.

Now, as you can see, that presumption would be, how can I put this…strange.

Remember Those Strange Things in Your Neighborhood…

Netflix has officially welcomed the second season of Stranger Things to its playlist for fans who have been waiting with eager anticipation to watch/binge and enjoy.

And for a spoiler-free season two preview…

See you in a few days when we’ll all try to remember what that thing called “the sun” looks like.

Just Normal Things on Friday the 13th

Strange things happen on Friday the 13th. Stranger things happen on Friday the 13th when Netflix is involved.

Case in point:

10 new episodes of ’80s-inspired awesomeness formally known as season 2 of the hit Netflix original series Stranger Things arrive on Friday, October 27th.

PSA: Stock up on Eggo’s frozen waffles. You’ll probably get hungry during a 10-hour Stranger Things binge…
