The world is full of mysteries, secrets, and occasionally danger. The question asked by the TV series and the movie at the center of this week’s episode is: “What if we throw some kids into the middle of all that stuff?” Wade and Kevin seek to answer that question in their reviews of Netflix’s paranormal thriller series, Stranger Things, and Disney’s wonder-tinged remake of a film from its back catalog, Pete’s Dragon.
