Steve and Anthony roll our way through season 4 (episode 2) with discussions of video stores, the amazing acting of Sadie Sink, and breakfast burritos.
Take a peek into our alternative past, present, and future in the return of For All Mankind. The season is bringing new relationships and piling on the family drama. Are we going to get another land invasion of Mars? How many more wars do we need to fight?! Witness the first wedding in space…and it’s just as cringey as some weddings down here on earth, but more dangerous. But the economy is soaring, so I would like to live in this reality please.
This season of Stranger Things brought on the 80s nostalgia and lots of great moments. We have opinions, you have feedback, let’s talk about it! Listen in on Vecna theories, relationship analyses, and your hot takes on your favorite (or least favorite) Stranger Things Season 4 moments. We’re now looking forward to a big, shiny bow to tie up this entire journey in the rest of this season and the next.
Thanks for sending in your feedback! Now that we have the benefit of looking back on the complete series of We Own This City, we have the advantage of looking at this multi-layer problem as a whole. This show offers us viewers a chance to engage with and develop compassion for people we may not share experience with. That is prestige television at its best. And please enjoy the American accent lesson from an informed listener.
The show that took home multiple Baldies is back with an exciting looking season. In this scifi realism, we wonder how the show will tackle how space is viewed in an age of expansion, public and private space exploration, and heroism from different perspectives. Which flaps of the butterfly wings are going to influence life in this space age? Find out with us Friday, June 10th at 3AM EST when the pilot and our first episode drop.
This is a stand-alone reaction to season 4, volume 1 (through 7 episodes). We will return to our usual rewatch podcast very soon.
This episode has big portal energy. We got the twist we were hoping for, but it leaves the question: which came first, the Vecna or the egg? We’re getting nervous about those wounds on one of our beloved characters. And we’re gearing up for Hopper’s next superhero-esque move.
With the finale right around the corner, we’re hoping for some surprises. The characters are still in transit, but we feel like they’re building to something big with Eleven’s backstory. While waiting for her powers to return, we’re also anticipating the death of one of our favorite characters, and enjoying Murray and Joyce’s adventures. The Satanic Panic is sweeping up members of the Hellfire Club, so now is not the time to let people know that I play a Tiefling.
Ha! You thought Nina was a person? We totally didn’t. Nope, haha, we always knew. Speaking of never being confused, we’ve got some theories and predictions that we’re holding tight to. We’re witnessing the point of no return and an escape that could only happen in the 80s, nothing to do with Kurt Russell in New York though. And how many modems can you recognize just by the sound? I guarantee it’s more than me, but less than Jim and A.Ron.
The Vecna isn’t the only horrifying thing that you see this season. Shedding the skin of the fun, breezy Stranger Things that we started with a few years ago, this season is going down darker roads. We have to sit with these characters through more adult situations as they try to navigate these with kid solutions. And it is starting to seem that Hopper is likely evolving into a Steven McQueen-esque superhero. Maybe.
