In this episode of Hip Squared, enter a dark world of adventure and mystery. First, John talks about The Stranger Things soundtrack, composed by Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon of the band Survive. Their haunting synth melodies create a perfectly creepy soundtrack for the Netflix show, and are also excellent albums on their own. Including the soundtrack for Stranger Things Season 2, three volumes have been released. John also talks about the Stranger Things mobile game, a retro throwback to old school 8-bit and 16-bit adventure games like The Legend of Zelda.
Then Troy reviews the 3rd and final season of A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix. Based on a children’s book series, the show wraps up as you would expect from the title. With strong performances by Neal Patrick Harris and the three child stars, the show still has a somewhat unsatisfying conclusion.
Produced by Maplex Monk.
