    They say there are two things inevitable in life, Death and Taxes. Now obviously this phrase is old and dated, as there are many more inevitable things in our day to day non-colonial lifestyles. Something that was obviously inevitable but somehow still need the fanfare to go with it was just announced today by the powers that be at streaming service company Netflix. Stranger Things has been renewed for a 3rd season.

     Stranger Things has become a transcending show on Netflix. Appealing to the different masses on a level we haven’t seen in pop culture since Game of Thrones and Walking Dead. While no official numbers have ever been released (why they hide these things I don’t know) it was estimated that over 15 million viewers tuned in to the season 2 premiere within its first three days of release on October 27th. Boosting a score of 94% on rotten tomatoes it seems most everybody has agreed that Stranger Things is doing something right. “The Duffer Brothers have again managed to wield their particular alchemy and create a follow-up worthy of the hype created by its predecessor.” Allison Keene of Collider.com said of season 2.

        Minor spoiler warning ahead: Season 2 ends on a minorish cliff-hanger and with no season 3 announcement made prior to its release fans were left up in arms. Netflix has made it a habit of only renewing shows on a season by season basis, with some exceptions Vis-à-vis House of Cards. Using this model has fans salivating at any news that may come from the officials and it is one of the most asked questions of both production staff and the actors. Now I want to put something out on front street with this announcement: Yes we will be getting a season 3….eventually. Yep, no release date was attached to this press release.

   In an interview with indiewire.com, before the announcement of season 3, the Duffer Brother have stated “Season 3 is still so early in it’s stages of development that it hasn’t even gotten the official greenlight. It’s really just Matt and me working with some writers and figuring out where it’s going to go,” said Ross Duffer. So while we know a season 3 will happen it looks like everyone involved s finding the best way to bring us that story.

If you haven’t checked out Stranger Things yet, both seasons 1 and 2 are available for streaming anytime through Netflix. For those of you who are not on the streaming train, a season 1 box set has been released and can found at all major retailers.

Sōbetsu Haruo-san.

Tuesday August 8th, the world bid farewell to a legendary Japanese actor whose face you may not recognize but his work created a standard and left a legacy. Haruo Nakajima, was the original “man in the rubber suit” Godzilla and remained so from the first Godzilla film in 1954 until 1972. Ever the professional, Nakajima went to the zoo to study the lumbering and methodical movement of elephants and bears from which he created Godzilla’s trademark slow lumber that has been recreated and implemented in every Godzilla film to come out of Toho Studios.

During a 2014 interview, Nakajima said of his movement in the suit, “If Godzilla can’t walk properly, it’s nothing but a freakshow.” Nakajima landed the role that built a legacy after a bit part in Japan’s OTHER gigantic film, Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. He donned the 200 pound rubber suit and would pour his all into his performance, often times ringing out a bucket full of sweat after emerging from the suit during breaks. Proud and truthful, Nakajima stated “I am the original, the real thing…my Godzilla was the best.” Watch ANY Godzilla film after his departure and you will see his movement mimicked and know he spoke the truth. Haruo Nakajima was 88 years old when he passed and is survived by his daughter Sonoe Nakajima.

The guys from Nowhere are continuing their coverage from the 2016 Stan Lee Los Angeles Comic Con and they are crossing paths with another friend from conventions past who happens to have their roots in the Garden State.

In this installment of our convention’s coverage, we talk with the multitalented Marilyn Ghigliotti and this isn’t here first visit to Nowhere, as the Nowhere California Team has crossed paths with her two other times in this past year.

The first meeting took place at the 2015 Stan Lee’s Comikaze (who would have thought that would be the last year for that moniker)

Go Go Get Me A New Pair Of Pants!!

It’s here! After months of teaser posters and tidbits, Saban Brands and Lionsgate Films have delivered the first teaser trailer for 2017’s Power Rangers film. I have been skeptical of the film simply because it treads in the footsteps of the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers from the 90’s and I hold that near and dear to my heart. I am proud to say that I am nothing if not excited and intrigued by this new take. A departure from the sugary sweet good guys that comprised the original team, these teens all seem to be in trouble of some type or are all branded as misfits and outcasts. Often times the glue that binds, they are drawn together and make a discovery of five different colored discs that lead them through dramatic physical changes. The trailer gives us our first look at Elizabeth Banks’ version of legendary baddie Rita Repulsa who kicks up the grit factor by claiming “I have killed Rangers before.”

Power Rangers stars the aforementioned Banks as well as Bryan Cranston as Zordon and Bill Hader as the voice of the bumbling Alpha 5. The only question left is…when will my boy Jason David Frank show up as the Green Ranger!? Make your way to theaters on March 24th, 2017 to watch these new Rangers “Discover the Power.”
