 On January 11, 2016, in the town of Austin, TX, 12-year-old Jon Risinger vanishes mysteriously. Jon's frantic mother, Tyler Coe, searches for him with an M41A Pulse Rifle and flamethrower while Police Chief Marcus LaPorte launches his own investigation into the design of the batmobile from Batman Forever. Unfortunately Jon has no friends so no one else went looking for him.

    Literally half the episode has nothing to do with Stranger Things. Recaps and fan interaction are fine, but it makes no sense for them to be half the episode and to be before the main event.

    I'd like to add a couple to the set design thread. For a new set I like the underground prison in "The OA" and for an older set I LOVE the set from "The Prisoner" (the old British version! from the 1970's)

    If people think Jon is loud they should give screen junkies movie fights a watch. That show started with debates about movies and devolved into a show about shouting and some movie stuff is in there too.

    Wood paneling.  No.  Not 80s.  60s/70s.  If it existed on a wall in the 80s then it was put up way before then.

    I had been putting off watching Stranger Things for whatever reason (just didn't want to jump on another bandwagon)...had to watch the entire thing before watching this episode just so I could relate. Thanks guys! Worth the watch (both Stranger Things and Enjoy the Show)!

    if I hadn't watched Stranger Things before now, I'd watch it because Jon said it was NOT a gigantic pile of poo.


    But what exactly is "Nostalgia Porn", and why are you using to describe a show with pre pubescent tots, Jon? Thoughts?


    Tyler. Tyler. Hey Tyler! TYLER. Love your shirt bro. Tyler.


    Other dude..... Hey. Hi. Forgot your name. But you rock.

    This is the first episode of this I've made some time to watch, and I have to say I love it. Jon is, as always, a charismatic and knowledgeable host, and Marcus and Tyler are some of my favorite personalities at Rooster Teeth, plus the interesting topics covered. Loving it.

    stranger things was over-hyped, so after watching it i give it a 7/10. but for me it could have been more exciting. it's not a game changer like ppl made it seem it was.

    For me, It's the Doom movie. Shitty as the movie was, plot wise, the design was excellent. They used darkness and light effectively, the practical fx for the monsters were great, and the fight sequence at the end made excellent use of practical makeup

    I think the best part of Stranger Things was just that the design was satisfying.  You took one look and knew where you were and the whole context of the people occupying the space.  You knew their demographic, their income, interests, and life.  But not only that, it was pretty.  Like, in all honesty this sounds unintelligent but the way it was shot and made just made me think "This is pretty" right off the bat.  Movies like La La Land and Wes Anderson's works do that too.  You just sit there and before you even care about the characters you think "This is a well designed pretty piece of film".  If you think that before the story even begins, you know there was time and care put into the piece and it doesn't matter how cliche a story is (like La La Land) because you are hooked on the imagery.

    I actually got to go to the LACMA to see the del Toro exibit. It was amazing to see all of those props and the art from of most, if not all, of his movies. I'm super glad Marcus brought him up because I would have definitely picked Pale Man for my favorite.

    i still don't understand how everyone says rogue one played it safe. they spend the entire (fairly long-ish) movie building up these great characters, and then killing them all off very abruptly.

    Love the show Jon but the monologues are the one bit I'd like to see cut. The discussions are fun. The mini games are fun. Just drop the little speeches about movies.

    Also I want Marcus and Tyler on more shows. Marcus and Tyler on RT Podcast please.

  • ConfusedLlama FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    I'm surprised Tyler didn't point this out, but pacing was a huge problem with Stranger Things. If a movie was being made with the exact same plot, it could have disseminated the same information in much less time.

      That's the difference though between long form TV and short form movies.  You have far less time in a movie than a series.  That's partially why book adaptions are leaning towards short series (A Series of Unfortunate Events is one example), because you get more detail and a longer draw toward a reveal.  Yes, at times Stranger Things is slow, but so are a lot of movies.  But if Stranger Things was a movie, I also think we wouldn't have gotten the wonderful character development that we got.  Movies are a quick way to enjoy a story, but I think TV is a great way to make people continuously want to sit down and watch your content.  Sorry for the long winded response.

    As regards bad set design the plastic icicles in Batman & Robin always stands out but something that should have gone the practical route maybe that ended up being terrible cgi is the scene in Wolverine Origins in the bathroom where Logan examines his claws in the mirror. They just look so fake it's hard to suspend disbelief. It's bad.

    A favourite weapon of mine has always been Robocop's pistol. It just has so many cool elements from the long barrel, to the burst fire to his finger twirl before his thigh opens up and places it inside. Just all round very cool.

    I feel like we really owe Mad Max a special thanks, I feel like it brought practical effects back into the spotlight. This isn't to say no one was using practical but the aclaim it garned really reminded everyone of how good practical with a touch of CGI could be.

    I've enjoyed the hell out of these test episodes! I can't wait for more. In terms of movie weapons, one of my favorites is Robocop's 3 round burst pistol. That thing is so damn cool! Also, in terms of the nostalgia thing, Stranger Things did an excellent job of immersing one into that world without trying to hard. A movie that felt a bit like it was trying to hard was the J.J. Abrams movie Super 8. For bad set designs, gotta go with Attack of the Clones. Watching that agin recently was orettt damn rough.

    Along with set design, effects, and sound design, the soundtrack can make a big difference. You mentioned the music in Stranger Things, but Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Guardians of the Galaxy, and others had a soundtrack/score that really helped me get into the movie, even if it had some flaws. Kubo and the Two Strings in particular has an amazing soundtrack that's an essential part of that story. I tried to think of movies that have a bad soundtrack, and nothing came to mind. My fiance suggested Daredevil (the movie), but I haven't seen it.

      Bad soundtrack for me would be Rouge One, I (unlike Jon) really liked the movie but the soundtrack just wasn't good.


      Counter to that would be Tron: Leagacy, I didn't enjoy it but I love the soundtrack

    The thing with Barb is that they wrote the show expecting their audience to be grown up versions of Nancy and Steve; the popular kids. When really a lot of the people who watched Stranger Things were more like Barb and Will. The show writers expected a reaction along the lines of 'I knew someone like that at school' not 'I was someone like that', hence the feeling of being cheated by Barb's death. They didn't expect us to care about her as much as we did and so didn't give as much time to her as a character.

    Preach it Tyler. Citizen Kane is a tedious slog. I appreciate what it did for film-making, but it is not the greatest film of all time. It might be the most influential film of all time, but the greatest film of all time is obviously 2004's Starsky & Hutch. I never get tired of that movie.

    I really like this show. I love having the different topics for each episode that sort of revolve around one main show/movie. However, I don't really care for the intros and outros with Jon just talking to camera. It feels out of place from everything else and disturbs the flow of the show. Overall though: great show. Keep it up.
