Not only did Netflix give us a fantastic sophomore season to Stranger Things, they gave us a companion show, “Beyond Stranger Things,” to go with it. Hosted by Jim Rash, the 7 episode show contains a lot of fun, insightful, and interesting moments from the Duffer Brothers, director Shawn Levy, and stars Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Caleb McLaughlin, Joe Keery, Millie Bobby Brown, Natalia Dyer, Brett Gelman, Gaten Matarazzo, Sean Astin, Paul Reiser, and David Harbor. In this episode, Addi and Darrell share some of their favorite moments from the companion show.

Addi’s Fave Moments:

Caleb’s apple/ blowing his nose
The intro (stranger think sped up?)
The director having to tell the kids not to slap each other before takes
