We’re back for more discussion of HBO’s miniseries, Sharp Objects, discussing the second episode, “Dirt”. But it turns out we can’t resist the siren call of discussing “all of television” as we do a deeper dive than is truly necessary on the 2018 Emmy nominations, as well as talk about the Stranger Things season 3 teaser that just dropped. We just can’t help ourselves!
Jim and A.Ron are still feeling the love for Netflix’s Stranger Things 2, as we go through the mailbag and return to Hawkins, Indiana one last time until Stranger Things 3! We discuss interesting death theories, differing opinions on episode 207, D’art Demogorgon theories, growing up a geek girl in the 80s, and much more.
We conclude our epic Stranger Things marathon — which really has been a month long obsession — with the spectacular, extremely fulfilling, finale of season two, “The Gate”. Maybe you can say the climax is a rehash of last year. But everything else works in just the way you’d hope and hits all the right emotional and character notes and feels so satisfying that it feels mean spirited to harp on a quibble here or there. We feel that this was the perfect follow up the the original Stranger Things, and in the Duffer Bros. we trust. Thanks for coming along on this ride with us. Can’t wait until next time!
Ladies and gentlemen, Bob the Brain. Founder of the AV Club. Hero to all. Shining star that burns so bright. This is your episode, Bob. We’ve got one more episode of season two of Stranger Things left before our marathon is over. Let’s get to it!
Day three of our Stranger Things marathon continues! We’re back, and so is Eleven (or I suppose we’re going to have to get used to Jane, yeah) as she makes a connection to a long lost sister.
Will sets a trap, and Hawkins Lab is about to be rocked! That’s where we have to leave things as day two of our Stranger Things season two marathon draws to a close. We’ll see you tomorrow for what’s sure to be the thrilling conclusion!
Hopper’s the one in need of a hero in this one, and A.Ron is gratified to see Bob the Brain step up. Our season two marathon of Stranger Things continues!
Will’s just chillin’ in this episode, and D’art has a snack. Day two of our Stranger Things marathon begins!
Well, that was just about the most horrifying thing we’ve ever seen. And I’ll tell you something else, we trust that D’artagnan about as much as we trust Bob’s advice for dealing with critters from the upside down. Our first day of binge watching Stranger Things season 2 draws to a close! We’ll be back tomorrow for more!
This episode is really rough on the pumpkins, ya’ll! Our weekend-long binge watch of Stranger Things season 2 continues!
