The Story Geeks with Jay Sherer

Stranger Things, Ep. 3 - Why Setting the Show in the 80s Matters

December 31, 2016

Jay and Sandra Dimas, editor-in-chief of the Prose and Cons, discuss the deeper issues found in Stranger Things, Ep. 3:

  • "[Stranger Things] is one of the best shows out right now." - Sandra
  • What is the Upside Down? Is it another planet? Another dimension? Another spiritual plane?
  • Who's your favorite character in the show? Why?
  • What's up with Barb's disappearance and why are people so fired up about it?
