A not so brief list of things I almost* tweeted during my binge of Stranger Things, Season 2
SPOILER ALERT – STRANGER THINGS SEASON 2
“Oh my gosh is that Deputy Dougie?!?”**
“Winona and Sean. I die.”
“Hey, Netflix, how about a limited run of Mad About You, set in their current timeline?”
“We don’t deserve Jonathon Byers.”
“I know I’m old because my first thought wasn’t “awwwww,” but “I hope he’s home-schooling her math and stuff.”’
“She does get vocab!”
“Ugh, Lucas the real. Love this kid.” -- "He's not even a real scientist!!!"
“There’s no way these bozos aren’t Tom Cruise and Rebecca De Mornay from Risky Business.”***
“Is this Billy the same Billy from Twin Peaks?”
“He thought to use his proton pack J.”
“I heart Dustin’s mom.”
“I can’t tell if Sean Astin is gonna stay a good guy or be a Modine minion.”
“HEART EYES Joyce is so smart!!!HEART EYES”
“I’m tired of Billy.”
“Ok I’m pretty sure Winona’s epic Emmy faces were just her workshopping the now-memories scene. Brilliant.”
“HEART EYES Bob the Brain HEART EYES”
“True Detective Season Three. Mahershala would be ok with it, right?” -- re: Dustin and Steve in the car
“Dear Netflix, can Erica get her own show?”
“If you told me right now Billy was played by Rob Lowe, I’d believe you. That guy’s a vampire and this guy has serious St. Elmo’s vibes.”
“So I think Paul Reiser is shady in this, but his character is still essentially a good guy?”
“I’d like Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein to go on tour opening for Peter Gabriel, please. (See also: The Tower That Ate People.)”
“Daaaammmmn boy, this performance. (ok fingers)” (NOAH SCHNAPP BROUGHT THE FIRE THIS SEASON)
“Hold on to your butts.”
“Bob Newby, superhero”
“The way I feel about Bob right now is similar to the dread I felt over the #fraga and I keep alternating mute and pause.”
“I don’t have the answers, I don’t have a plan, I’m mad about you, baby, so help me understand.”
“To make them less scary, I’ve been calling the baby monsters demi-gorgons for a few episodes and it helps.”
“Here lies Bob Newby, superhero. GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!”
“Something with Checkhov’s tripwire has to be coming up soon, right?”
“El looks straight out of Pump Up the Volume.”
"So apparently I'm into Steve using sports metaphors."
"Y'all, some kids better be getting some nominations (@TheEmmys, @goldenglobes)."
"If/when we get a season 3, I wouldn't mind a Culkin or 3 being involved."
"The curiosity door is locked."
"The MOST far fetched thing is Hop putting out his cigarette before going in a diner in the 80s, right?"
"Dustin, my babyyyyyyyy"
*Almost because I promised to hold them a week, which I may or may not be able to hold until maybe tomorrow. Probably. Maybe.
**It was not.
