The Story Geeks with Jay Sherer

Stranger Things: Season 1 - String Theory, D&D, and Hot Pink Tank Tops

March 19, 2017

Sam Welbaum explains String Theory and Pantheism while Jay Sherer (the Story Geeks host) and Isaac Johnson attempt to follow along...

Jay, Sam, and Isaac review the Duffer Brother's Netflix series Stranger Things, Season 1! They start with a spoiler-free review, and then dig into some of the deeper themes. Questions posed by Stranger Things, Season 1, include:

  • Based on what you know of the Upside Down and the Demogorgon, what do you think is going on? Is this an alternate dimension? And alternate timeline? A different spiritual plane?
  • We all grew up in the 80s. Let’s compare our own experiences in the 80s and compare that to the show’s portrayal of the 80s. How did this show speak to your own experience? And, what is it missing?
  • Who’s your favorite character? Why?
  • Where do you think the story is headed and what do you hope to see in Season 2?
