Geeklings, tomorrow (or midnight if you’re one of those) Stranger Things is back. I have missed it tremendously, if you couldn’t tell. I’ve been patiently waiting. Buying my pop vinyls. Listening to the soundtrack (makes for good reading music). Watching and re-watching the first season. Wearing my t-shirts. And now, now, we are a couple of hours away from the release of season two and I am alllllllll types of excited.
Sadly, I have to wait until 9:30 tomorrow night for my Stranger Things watch party so please, please, no spoilers. I could take this opportunity to wax theories and break down what I think is going to happen but I’m not going to do that for two reasons. I have tons of thoughts in my head of possible avenues this season could travel but I really just want to watch the show and let it all unfold before me (…that’s what she said?). I’ve kind of stopped watching the trailers so I can try and forget things. No, it never works. My mind is a steel trap when it comes to pop culture, but I can’t remember where I left my pen half the time. True story. The other reason, and less exciting, I’m tired. I honestly didn’t think I was going to make it on here today. I just wrote a very long Mr. Robot review (here) and just feel sapped of energy. Been a week. The fact that this piece is over 200 words should be considered a win.
So, if I’m not going to give theories what am I going to do? Well, I’m just going to trailer dump. It’s Stranger Things Eve so I’m going to get you all hyped with the trailers. Watch them at your own risk. If you want things to be fresh for tomorrow then maybe it’s best to avoid them like I am. For those of you who just want to get more excited… have at it. Be sure to follow me on Twitter (@iamgeek32) as I’m sure to be posting about Stranger Things all weekend. Don’t worry it’ll be spoiler free.
Happy binge watching Geeklings! Let’s get back to Hawkins!
