Average Nobodies Podcast
for January 14, 2018
On today’s show we’re chatting about last Sunday’s Golden Globes, YouTuber Logan Paul, what we’ve been watching & Black Mirror episode 3 – Crocodile & episode 4 – Hang The DJ for our TV Club.

Black Mirror, the Channel 4 turned Netflix series, is now streaming it’s 4th series on Netflix. We posted the teaser trailer back in August, but the time has come for the latest 6 episodes. If you’ve never seen the show, it’s basically a psychological thrill ride that will really fuck with your head. You can also watch the official trailer below.
Black Mirror – Season 4
The beauty of the show is that it’s an anthology series. Even if you don’t want to go back and watch series’ 1-3, you’ll still be able to enjoy series 4. I watched the previous 12 episodes of series 1-3 over the past few weeks, and they’re fantastic. Be warned, they’re very dark. If you’re looking for a happy, light show to bring you into 2018, this is not that show. If you’re looking to mind fuck yourself, you’ve come to the right place.
While I’ve avoided spoilers, the initial reviews are that this season is the darkest yet. That’s saying something for a show that previously featured politicians fucking pigs on live TV & psychological torture amusement parks. Another interesting part of series four is that all six episodes will feature female leads. Mentally prepare yourself and then watch series four over the long weekend. We’ll be chatting about episodes 1 and 2 next week on the Average Nobodies podcast.
Stranger Things Renewed For Season 3
Netflix is returning to the Upside Down.
The streaming giant has renewed the Duffer brothers’ breakout hit Stranger Things for a third season. A return date has not yet been determined for the supernatural drama about the happenings brimming beneath the surface of a small American town.
While Netflix — like fellow streamers Amazon and Hulu — does not release viewership information, measurement leader Nielsen cited an audience of 15.8 million viewers who watched the season two premiere within three days of its launch. (And nearly 11 million of them were among the key adults 18-49 demographic.)
Nielsen also found that 361,000 Netflix subscribers streamed the entire nine-episode second season within 24 hours of its debut. (Netflix declined comment on the Nielsen findings.) Stranger Things 2 also was crowned the most popular show in the country, according to data company Parrot Analytics. – Hollywood Reporter
This was always a given, but Stranger Things has been renewed by Netflix for a third season. Similar to Mindhunter’s renewal, you knew it was coming, but it’s still nice to have confirmation. As the Hollywood Reporter article mentions, Stranger Things is an enormous hit bordering on a phenomenon. 361,000 people streamed the second season within 24 hours, which is kind of amazing. I watched it all in the same week, but doing that much damage in a 24 hour period is borderline psychotic.
The biggest issue with shows featuring such a young cast is how certain cast member will age between seasons. It seems the Duffer Brothers are solving that problem by featuring a time jump. When asked where season 3 would pick up, they responded “You can’t start right after season two ended. It forces you to do a time jump. But what I like is that it makes you evolve the show. It forces the show to evolve and change, because the kids are changing”. It’ll be interesting to see how far of a time jump they utilize and how much of the friendships from season 2 are still featured. If Steve and Dustin aren’t the best friends in the universe, I’m officially rooting for the Mind Flayer.
Mindhunter Renewed For Season 2

Season 1 of Mindhunter was one of the finest Netflix original dramas ever, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise it’s been renewed. It’s still nice to have the official confirmation though, and Netflix made the announcement via the official Mindhunter Twitter account. We dove deep into season 1 of the show on episode 53 of the Average Nobodies podcast, but you should really check it out for yourself. Jonathan Gross & Holt McCallany are one of the more unique and fascinating cop pairings on TV while Cameron Britton’s Edmund Kemper will destroy you.
The show weaves multiple storylines throughout it’s first season, and ends the final episode with a few stories still left unsolved. I won’t spoil anything if you haven’t seen season 1, although it would be odd to be reading a renewal post for a show you haven’t seen. I digress. Watch season 1 as soon as possible and then join everyone else on Planet Earth for the countdown to season 2.
