Any fans? I usually don’t watch TV shows but I love this one. We just finished the second season.

I don’t really pay attention to Netflix originals in general. I like White Rabbit Project and Bill Nye Saves the World is okay, but otherwise I use Netflix purely to watch shows from actual TV.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

You should check this out. I normally don’t watch TV at all except movies and old shows on DVD. This show is set in the 80s.

Stranger Things is absolutely amazing. To anyone who hasn’t seen it, do so immediately. It’s the ultimate nostalgia fest (even if you didn’t grow up in the 80s like me, some elements carry through to my childhood in the 2000s such as Star Wars, going everywhere on your bike etc) with a fantastic cast, a great score and a pretty solid script. It’s a very fun show to watch, but it also has its scarier moments.

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

I’m a big fan too. The story is very weird, in an interesting way; all the actors are great. Especially the kids. 

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

You guys probably already know this, but I found out the actress who plays Eleven is named Millie Bobby Brown–that’s a really funny name.

Chief Hopper is probably my favorite character.

Silly Dad watches this show, and he said my new haircut reminded him of Eleven’s hairdo.

Funnily enough, people have been known to refer to me as Millie.

But has anyone called you Silly Millie or Silly Millie Bobby?

Probably the former, not the latter. LPD calls me Silly Billy sometimes, which I find rather irritating.
