    "Everyone" being *checks* two people. All other members ignored the debate, me included until you brought it up again. G-man was hardly being bullied.

    First off, JD complained about the depiction of animal cruelty for the sake of a meme, the one other member at the time responding to G-man was Nth Doctor who complained about the timing of it, right at the beginning of the new thread, as well as the general crassness and (at the time, before G-man edited it) apparent pointlessness of the meme.
    Secondly, you wanna talk vitriol, maybe take a look at that meme again (and then consider that the Netflix and Stranger Things logos weren't there at the beginning). Yes, it makes a point, but it does it in a way that strong reactions should not be surprising.


    And sorry, Nth Doctor, I looked if I could find some news on Stranger Things to balance the post, but with production being halted, there's nothing. I have ordered the TMNT crossover comic from my comics dealer, though, and am looking forward to see what story they come up with.

    Oh, yes, that TMNT crossover comic looks like a lot of fun! I can't even remember if I posted about that news here but i do remember hearing about its announcement awhile ago.

    I saw the news earlier today, and I'm pretty excited.

    Hell fucking yeah! That's awesome news!

    I wondered if they would be able to conclude their seasonal trend of 80s icons appearing on this show. Linda Hamilton is an excellent high note to end on!

    Arnold (what was he doing at Tudlum?) setting up the announcement video with a brief clip from Linda:

    Arnie has a top 10 TV show (FUBAR) and a biography movie (Arnold) on Netflix right now.

    Meant to post this yesterday, but per Pop Crave on Twitter, "Running Up That Hill" has become the first 80s song by a female artist to reach one billion streams on Spotify.

    I think at this point it's probably more popular now than it was when it first came out.

    I forgot to check earlier but Kate posted about it on her website:

    A billion streams! I have an image of a river that suddenly floods
    and becomes many, many tributaries - a billion streams - on their way to the sea.
    Each one of these streams is one of you…

    Thank you! Thank you so much for sending this song on such an impossibly astonishing journey.
    I’m blown away.

    That is absolutely the case, at least in the U.S. Back then, it didn't crack the top 20 on the US charts and I don't even remember seeing it on MTV.

    Post Modern Jukebox has chimed in on its popularity with a cover in their own inimitable style.

    ^And I say "inimitable" with irony, since they're basically a cover band. :lol:

    Variety reports that Dan Tratchenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, Prey, Black Mirror) is scheduled to direct an episode for the final season.

    I still need to see Prey (I don't know why I haven't, I was really looking forward to it and I have Hulu...), but I loved 10 Clovefield Lane and his episode for Black Mirror ("Playtest"). I think he'll be an excellent match for Stranger Things.

    You really should check Prey, it's pretty good.

    Prey was great. Highly recommended.

    I agree, my only nitpick is that the Predator is a little bit to strong comparing to the other Predators. But maybe I missed something

    Yeah, yeah, I know! Especially since I'm such a big fan of Amber Midthunder. It's just one of those things that slipped through the cracks.

    Honestly, if it had been released theatrically, I think I would've been more likely to have seen it right away. Alas.

    They were on space steroids.

    The other Predators we see in the 20th/21st centuries are legacy admissions to Predator academy and their parents were the true GOATs.
