Here’s a bunch of ‘Stranger Things’ stuff because there’s not much other TV news out there right now that doesn’t involve rapey douchebags

Before we get started, let me warn you, these links are full of Stranger Things 2 spoilers, so if you haven’t found the time to binge it yet, you might want to pass on clicking on the clickies. 

Apparently, one of the adorable Stranger Things kids was originally not supposed to survive — and honestly, it probably would have made more sense if this character had died. I like the character, I’m just saying, plot-wise …

After it was revealed that the directors learned an actor was uncomfortable with a particular scene, they INSISTED on it, and now people are mad.

Finn Wolfhard — one of the child actors from the show — was recently criticized for not taking photos with fans who were waiting outside his hotel. Sophie Turner was NOT HAVING IT. And you do not mess with the Queen in the North.

In case you were wondering, here are the stories behind the 80s hairstyles on the show — again, this is from Stranger Things 2, so do not yell at me if you get spoiled.

Here are the Stranger Things kids as 8-bit video game characters — which is actually cuter and more plot-relevant than I would have thought.

In Other TV News

Here is a trailer for the failed Aquaman pilot which looks like a show that Kevin from This Is Us would definitely be cast in which would eventually drive him to have a nervous breakdown. Prepare yourself for some grade-A, 2006-quality CGI to blow your mind. You can watch the entire pilot on iTunes, but why?

BREAKING NEWS: There’s too much TV.

The company that gave you RuPaul’s Drag Race has created its own subscription streaming VOD service.

Here’s everything we know about what is going to ruin my winter: the Bachelor Winter Games. Somehow, impossibly, I’m supposed to be writing about the Olympics, The Bachelor, and this nonsense at the same time? Yeah, never going to happen.

Gwen Stefani and Pentatonix are going to perform at the Rockefeller Center tree lighting.

Wait, WAIT, there are people who are rooting for Julian and Alexis on General Hospital? WHO ARE YOU MONSTERS?

Fox News has pulled an ad calling for Trump’s impeachment after its audience — or one very important audience member — lost their damn minds, so here it is in case you haven’t seen it yet:

Harassment Roundup

Harvey Weinstein has received a lifetime ban from the Television Academy. AND STAY OUT, YOU DISGUSTING RAPE MONSTER.

Another New Yorker piece just came out describing how Weinstein used private investigators to spy on accusers and try to intimidate reporters from revealing the accusations. It just proves how brave those who came forward and the reporters were.

Ellen Pompeo recalls being creeped out by James Toback and Harvey Weinstein.

House of Cards crew members claim that showrunner Beau Williamson knew about Spacey’s behavior and looked the other way. He disputes this.

A Kevin Spacey movie has been pulled from a film festival by its distributor.

Kevin Spacey registered trademarks for a bunch of House of Cards merchandise, including “sunglasses, footwear, gourmet-food products, luxury goods, toys, games, jewelry, alcoholic beverages (except beer), greeting cards and cell phone covers” days before the news about him broke. LOL

Tell me again how the accusations against Dustin Hoffman are going too far?

Oh, Ed Westwick, oh not you, too.
