Sorry for the delay…

Due to this week being a holiday week – Happy Birthday America! – a Commuter Watch just didn’t make a lot of sense. However, there’s a lot of great content to watch while you’re lighting fireworks, eating hamburgers, and ignoring work.

If you’re lucky enough to have Friday off, you’re probably looking at 96 hours of streaming ahead of yourself. You should probably catch up on Supergirl, RWBYThe Magicians, and Good Omens

Oh screw it, you know you should be watching Stranger Things Season 3 (Netflix).

Minor spoilers to come…

Crank it up to Eleven

Nostalgia, D & D, and Eggo’s

Hawkins is your idyllic 80’s town, there are approximately 3 cops, the kids bike to school, and the government is experimenting with the multiverse. Clearly Netflix recognized the impact E.T. had on its subscribers, and green-lit a Sci-Fi show where kids fight off figurative and literal demons.

Child actors in television are usually horrible; Walt, Carl, Chris Brody, the list is endless. Somehow, Modern Family utilized its child actors the best, but the children could (and did) hide in the background. That wasn’t possible in the town Hawkins!

The first season is all about finding Will Byers. His friends, Mike, Lucas, and Dustin get out their 20-sided die, flashlights, and bikes to travel into the Upside Down to get their friend back from a Demogorgon:

D&D Never Felt so TerrifyingWill’s mom slowly goes crazy trying to find her son, the Sheriff Hopper is trying to close a case, and there’s a new girl in school that eats Eggo Waffles all the time. Season 1 is about answering the question, “How far would you go for someone you love?”

Season 2 is all about the fallout. What happened to Barb? Who really is Eleven? Can Lucas and Dusty be friends after crushing on the same girl? You’ll learn all that and more!

The comedy is funny, the suspense is thrilling, and the visuals are stunning. No telling what Season 3 will deliver, but take this long weekend to visit Hawkins and the Upside Down. You have to trust us.

Stream if…

You have access to a Netflix password, you have at least 12 hours of free time, or you love Steve Harrington

Skip if…

Your focusing this weekend to meditate and shoot off fireworks.

Thank you, next
