#109 - Vecna Is Defeated, For Now - Stranger Things Season 4 Vol.2 Review & Discussion + Wishlist For Duffer Brothers' DeathNote Live Action Adaptation
THIS WEEK, DA BINGE BOIS RETURN TO HAWKINS, for the conclusion of Stranger Things Season 4 with its' second part, Volume 2! After enjoying to bits and pieces of Volume 1 of Netflix's mega hit, we watched 2 episodes, over 3 hours of content to give our thoughts, and opinions on the journey of Mike, Will, Lucas, Dustin, Max, Eleven, Nancy, Johnathan, Steve, Robyn, Joyce & Sheriff Hopper! In the large discussion over the events of this season, Da Bois speak on the overall impressive performance and overall atmosphere of the character Vecna / One / Henry and how he is some of the best horror in the last five years, how Mike has fizzled out as a character and lacks any major development or plotline, how the slow burn of the presumed coming out Will is getting ridiculous, and what our ideas will be for the eventual fifth and final season of Stranger Things! We move onto Whatcha Been Watchin' where Tristan talks about Kaguya-sama: Love Is War Ultra Romantic (Season 3) and Rent-A-Girlfriend season 2, and Enrique talks about the latest episode of the Aoashi dub. To close out the show, with the talk of the Duffer Brothers' biggest project so far, Da Bois thought it was only right to talk about the rumors of their DEATHNOTE live action Netflix adaptation. Enrique, Eli, & Tristan all agree that it would be better for the series to go a different direction and not involve Light or L at all and make either a sequel or prequel to keep the concept alive but avoid direct comparisons to the already great manga and anime. Of course that may not be an option, so Enrique lays out that he hopes that the Duffer Brothers don't attempt to humanize Light and many other things to keep the series true to the source material and just good in general. Next week, we return to an old friend with The Boys Season 3 featuring Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy, because god knows that we can not escape the monster under our proverbial bed known as Supernatural!
