I’m cooking with gasoline my fiends as I continue dishing out the wealth of both television and streaming services trailers for the upcoming super hero and Science Fiction hotness along with those big screen epics that we love so much. Yes I realize that I could have only done one or two posts and placed a few trailers in each but I love sharing the premise as a reminder and the casting so we can make it a more focused discussion point and have the comments matter most to the topic should any come in. Next on the media docket we have the second season trailer for Netflix’s “Stranger Things”. It made an appearance at the Comic Con International: San Diego or “SDCC” several days ago and I’ve been parsing these out as I’ve already noted. Let’s take a look down below and of course there is the premise and casting for you to absorb.
The Premise: Stranger Things is set in the fictional rural town of Hawkins, Indiana, during the early 1980s. The nearby Hawkins National Laboratory ostensibly performs scientific research for the United States Department of Energy, but secretly does experiments into the paranormal and supernatural, including those that involve human test subjects. These start to affect the unknowing residents of Hawkins in calamitous ways.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Before I get into my opinion on this I should admit that I never got around to seeing season one. I know, I know, what am I waiting for? According to a whole cadre of fellow geeks this show is right up my alley but for some reason I just wasn’t able to find the time. Remember that I am in fact keeping up with about nine other broadcast shows and running this website that keeps me super duper active whenever there is a free moment or six. Since I’ve learned that you need to pay attention to the happenings on this one, I didn’t want to make it something that I binged and played in the background of photo editing or cobbling together notes about the latest and greatest comic book and Metal music releases. I think you’d appreciate that and since I didn’t trust the second season trailer to not showcase key instances from the first season I didn’t even watch this one. It’s all been done exclusively for you. How awesome is that? I think pretty darned awesome. Alright now back to the rest of the everything on the plate. I still should have some more trailers coming up so stay tuned if you are enjoying our presentations of them.
