    The one thing that really bugged me about that show is in one scene where the family is having breakfast, they have a bottle of Mrs Butterworth's syrup, which always came in a glass bottle, but they put a plastic squeeze bottle sound effect in.

    Dude, how do you not know how to pronounce Samwise Gamgee's last name?? Love the video though, figured I needed to rip on you a little bit, keep your feet on the ground!!

  8. Leslie Sauceman July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    Stranger Things is easily one of the best shows of the decade! It's one of my favorites up there with GOT.

    I thought it was sigourney weaver in alien 3 that convinced her to shave her head… At least that was the buzz when the first season became.. Popular..

  10. Sir Lancelot July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    My 18 year old Daughter buzzed her hair too! She said it made her feel stronger and more confident as a young Woman, pretty cool!

    I wonder how many tv shows I'll never get around to watching before I die of old age. Like this one…

  12. Benjamin Forman July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    Simon doesn't watch movies AT ALL. GAMGI??????????
    Alien confirmed.

  13. Sam Haines July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

  14. Loretta Vamperetta July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    The anime Elfin Lied was also an influence on the series

    GAMGEE???????????????? Samwise GAMGEE???????????? Oh Simon. You never fail to entertain.

  17. DebbyAbqNM July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    I misread the title a bit. It isn't "strange things" but "stranger things", a show I have yet to watch as I do not have cable. I know folks enjoy it, so they'll like this video.

  18. ImPoliticalOK July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    Worst show ever everyone i know says stranger things is the worst they have ever seen.

  19. Sonja Morrison July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    Well, the US government did experiment on black citizens, infecting them, without consent, with STDs and then not treating them. Sigh.

  20. Rebekah Spears July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    If you can't pronounce a character's name (Gamgee) properly, why even make videos? Gamgee is so very British, written by a British writer, that you shouldn't even have any problems pronouncing it.

  21. peter pan July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    Yasss thx for doin this i love st and ur channel❤

  22. Chris Collinson July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    Should probably do a "Spoiler Alert" lol, there's a few

  23. Steven Louton July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    Cool vid. With interesting info. I personally don't watch the show as I am to busy most of the time but my sister and her husband, my brother-in-law enjoy Stranger Things very much. I am for sure gonna have them watch this video because of how huge of fan they are of the program they will love this for sure. Who knows, ya may get another subscriber or two out of them. Thanks for the great content you provide on not only this, but, all of your channels. Keep up the great work and keep it coming. Thanks again.

    The highschool in the show is the one my parents went to and met at. True story, it's in stockbridge GA

  25. misc alotastuff July 11, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    You do understand he is British. They pronounce certain words differently. Unlike american english which has been flattened. We say words differently. So back off his pronunciation.
