Even though Stranger Things takes place in the 1980s, the success of the series is due to its broad appeal.  In this episode, we take a closer look at how the lives and relationships of the characters relate to real life.  Find out how Dr. Scarlet connects with Eleven and her struggles.  We'll discuss what might be happening to Will as he deals with flashbacks and episodes (PTSD? The Anniversary Effect?).  We'll take a close look at the relationship Max has with her step brother, Hopper has with Eleven and Eleven has with Dr. Brenner.  How could she remain attached to a man who tortured her?  Is it Stockholm Syndrome?  We'll also attempt to figure out what psychological representations could be found in The Upside Down.  Finally, we'll talk about what the series shows us about being a friend and a hero.

Justice League is out, and we finally get to see who made the best Rotten Tomatoes prediction.  However, was the final result an injustice to The Justice League?  What does this all mean for the future of the DCEU?  What should happen next?  We'll discuss. Darth Taxus quizzes the contestants on DC animated and live action films.  Mark Hamill doesn't want people to spoil The Last Jedi, so Darth Taxus asks everyone to come up with the worst possible things that could happen in the movie.  As everyone knows, when Episode 8 is discussed, there is a good chance the word PORG will come up.

Hey you guuuuys! This week, we'll discuss two new TV show ideas - A Lord of the Rings series and a Goonies animated show.  Also, a company that turns motorcycles into speeder bikes has the us wondering what other vehicles we'd like to drive around.  Somehow Darth Taxus triggers a discussion about which characters in fandom deserve to have an electrical plug shoved in their mouth.  Wonder Woman made a lot of money at the box office.  So, does that mean it's time to make a Red Sonja movie?  And just how many 80s action/adventure movies can everyone name?  You'll find that out and hear Rotten Tomatoes predictions for Justice League. Sloth would want you to grab your Baby Ruth now and listen to today's podcast.
