Los Gatos, CA -The science fiction and horror juggernaut known as Stranger Things has been renewed for a third season but the biggest name in online entertainment Netflix. The show has captivated millions of viewers world wide and the buzz is still in the air . I admit I was  late to the party but it’s mixture of 1980’s  nostalgia, wonderful directing , talented writing and outstanding acting make this the show to watch. There is a reason why so many critics love this  and have award it some of televisions highest honors , its just that damn good.

 

Stranger Things is an American science fictionhorror web television series created, written, directed and co-executive produced by the Duffer Brothers, as well as co-executive produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. The first season, released in July 2016, stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono and Matthew Modine, with Noah Schnapp and Joe Keery in recurring roles. For the second season, Schnapp and Keery were promoted to series regulars, along with the additions of Sadie Sink, Dacre Montgomery, Sean Astin and Paul Reiser.

Set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana in the 1980s, the first season focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy amid supernatural events occurring around the town including the appearance of a girl with psychokinetic abilities who helps the missing boy’s friends in their own search. The second season, titled Stranger Things 2, is set a year after the first, and deals with attempts of the characters to return to normal and consequences that linger from the first season.

I plan to be with them every step of the way !

Cleveland ,Ohio- The staff at Wizard World have done it again for the third straight year .Bring a packed comic and pop culture festival to the rock capital and this time they turned the volume up to 11. I refereed to it as a festival because that is now what it is , music , movie screenings , comedy, art and musical shows is how the weekend played out and left a very exhausted and happy Cleveland in its place. Cleveland is a city has that been starving for  conventions for quite a while now, but that was not always the case . In the 1960’s Star Trek premiered here at a sci fi convention, during the 1980’s and 1990’s both fan based and corporate operated conventions such as Creation Conventions dominated the landscape but for many years there was a lull in Cleveland and with Wizard World those times are a thing of the past !
