The Hawkins Report

LSG Media

They are obnoxious, they are absurd, they are irreverent, and they are - at times - shockingly insightful. If you are looking for something different in the TV & Film podcasting genre, something honest and with zero interest in pandering, then turn your ears to The Hawkins Report: A Stranger Things Podcast by LSG Media.

Dean and Jessica have kicked Matthew back to Portland and they are finally back to work on The Hawkins Report. Jessica and Dean were both relieved to see that Stranger Things is back to form with "The Mind Flayer", and Dean totally forgets that "The Lost Sister" happened because he opens his commentary by saying, "We pick right up where we left off..." Um, no we didn't Dean - there was a whole episode in between. For obvious reasons Bob shines in this episode, but Jessica makes a great point by highlighting that it is hard to care about characters that are introduced in the second season. Additionally, Bob is "the other guy" and despite this we still come to love as much as "the guy" in Hopper. Another stand-out and emotional episode. Thanks to everyone who turned up in the live chat. We will see you for the finale soon! Follow Dean on Twitter. @Dean_LSGMedia Follow Matthew on Twitter. @MatthewFromLSG Follow Jessica on Twitter.

In a season full of high points we've finally gotten a lull in the writing, and Jessica and Dean are convinced that this was the worst episode of both seasons. That's not to say that there aren't redeeming qualities (aesthetic, Eleven, and some cool power displays from Kali), but there is a lot of super-hero movie and Sith/Jedi dynamics on display -- both of which are a bit overplayed. Despite the limitations in this week's episode, Jessica and Dean manage quite a few laughs - especially when "The Craft" comes up and we get a glimpse into Jessica's childhood.

"The Spy" raises the bar for season two and supplants "Dig Dug" as the season stand-out. Jessica and Dean talk all things Murray: is he a creep or what? They also get into the Aliens style assault on the Upside Down tunnels, they talk Billy's curling and cigarette work-out, and Jessica reaffirms her love of Steve. All this and more on -- The Hawkins Report. Follow Dean on Twitter. @Dean_LSGMedia Follow Matthew on Twitter. @MatthewFromLSG Follow Jessica on Twitter.

"Dig Dug" may be the best episode of Season Two. Dean and Jessica make the point that "things happen" and those things are perfectly timed. There has been plenty of set-up, sub-plot, and character growth. The Duffer brothers continue to be capable show runners who can weave all the lines together into a tightly knit story. For a season with plenty of high points, Dig Dug may stand alone versus the previous four chapters. What do you think?

Jessica and Dean are back at it again and they jump right into the aftermath of Will's encounter with the "Shadow Monster" that apparently has invaded Will's psyche. Yikes.

Jessica and Dean bring Matthew onto this week's episode and the trio dive deep into "The Pollywog". They all share some concerns for Dustin, but are largely optimistic about his story line for the season long-haul. The protagonists continue to be agents of action (see: Nancy, and Eleven). They do things. They make decisions and we approve. Matthew begs the show to stop making him watch Eleven cry, and the gang speculates on what types of life lessons that Hopper will teach Eleven. Plenty to discuss this week! Thanks again to Matthew for joining us! Follow Dean on Twitter. @Dean_LSGMedia Follow Matthew on Twitter. @MatthewFromLSG Follow Jessica on Twitter.

This week Dean watches the right episode, and both Jessica and Dean agree that this was another strong showing. Stranger Things continues to do what it does well: develop great interpersonal relationships, and this week it is Eleven and Hopper that shine. Jessica says she hates Billy, but Dean is predicting a mid-season turnaround on her feelings for Billy. What do you think? Will Jessica 180 on Billy? Will she fall for those tight blue jeans and devil-may-care attitude? Only time will tell. Follow Dean on Twitter. @Dean_LSGMedia Follow Matthew on Twitter. @MatthewFromLSG Follow Jessica on Twitter.

Stranger Things is back and so is The Hawkins Report! Did Dean watch the wrong episode? Does Jessica still have a "it's complicated" relationship with Steve? Is Mr. Wheeler still a creep-show? Does the second season set up anything interesting? Is the chemistry still there with the kids? Is Samwise really making out with Winona? And finally, can anyone trust Paul "steal your pulse rifle and lock you in the med-lab so you can get impregnated by an alien" Reiser ever again?! All this and more on our long-anticipated return to Stranger Things. Follow Dean on Twitter. @Dean_LSGMedia Follow Matthew on Twitter. @MatthewFromLSG Follow Jessica on Twitter.
