STRANGER THINGS 2: CHAPTER SIX: THE SPY Man, I always thought this stuff happened in movies and comic books. – Bob Newby This was a great Stranger Things episode, which (spoiler alert) precedes a really bad one, but had we spent the entire hour with the newest babysitter/buddy cop comedy/drama, “Harrington and Henderson,” I’d be… Read more »

Outkick the Coverage - Thor: Ragnarok Review

Full disclosure before we begin. I’m not a huge Thor fan from either the comics or the films. It’s just not a character that has ever spoken to me, in much the same way as Wonder Woman never has. If there’s a medieval feel, I’m usually not the proper audience for it. Game of Thrones… Read more »
