November is here and Jack just got back from his vacation to New Orleans. If you’re hoping for a detailed story regarding vampire-themed parties and spooky fun times, well…You’re in for a treat.

There is other television stuff to discuss this week aside from “Stranger Things.” But you best believe we totally geek out about “Stranger Things” in this episode!
