Stranger Things Season 3 Episode sauna test

Dustin Henderson: That keycard opens the door, but unfortunately, the Russian with this keycard also has a massive gun. Whatever’s in this room, whatever’s in those boxes, they really don’t want anybody finding it.
Robin Buckley: But there’s gotta be a way in.
Steve Harrington: Well, you know I could just take him out.
Robin Buckley: Take who out?
Steve Harrington:  The Russian guard. What? I sneak up behind him, I knock him out, and I take his keycard. It’s easy.
Dustin Henderson: Did you not hear the part about the massive gun?
Steve Harringon: Yes, Dustin, I did. And that’s why I would be sneaking.
Dustin Henderson: Ah. Well, please, tell me this, and be honest, have you ever actually won a fight?

Gaten Matarazzo, Maya Hawke and Joe Keery in the incredibly popular Stranger Things (2016 -), which recently had its third series released. And I’d argue it’s best. Set in the 1980s and with a mixture of science fiction, horror and comedy, the Netflix show was famously pitched as though Steven Spielberg was directing a Steven King story. You can find another example of the show on my blog here or find out more info on the episode from some huge fans of the programme here.

I don’t think there will ever be a better game in cricket than that.

Ben Stokes, Man of the Match in the cricket World Cup Final, as England beat New Zealand on boundaries after being tied after 50 overs and then after a Super Over each. Filled with drama, twists, outrageous skill and elements of controversy, it was a match that had everything.

Forky: Why do I have to be a toy?
Woody: You have to understand, how lucky you are to belong to a child.

Tony Hale and Tom Hanks in Toy Story 4, which features the brand new character of Forky, a spork made out of trash. Have you seen it? Where would you rank it compared to the previous three?
