STRANGER THINGS To Get Even Stranger
Replace the word “stranger” in the above title with “freakier” and it still works. The SECOND use of that word, that is. Otherwise you’d end up describing a show called FREAKIER THINGS, which, while it sounds like fun and like something I’d want to watch, doesn’t really exist. Or you could replace the second “stranger” with “scarier” and it would also be applicable. (On a side note, wouldn’t “Second Stranger” make a great name for some Alt-Rock band? Or maybe the title for an album?)
Producers are promising monster threats for the upcoming second season of the hit Netflix series that will make the horrifying Demogorgon seem downright cute and cuddly. Said EP Shawn Levy: “…I think overall the forces of evil that are inherent in season two make that Demogorgon look quaint in retrospect.” Oooh, titillating! They’re gonna have to try hard to come up with something I’ll like more than I liked the Demogorgon, though. I even bought the adorable little Funko figure of the creature. It was the real star of the show, to my mind, not any of the kids or Winona Ryder or even future Hellboy David Harbour. What kind of beastie would *I* love to see in season two? Howzabout something furry, with fangs? (Yeah, the fangs, I figure, are a given.) How ’bout you all?
