Showtime Synergy! If you’ve logged on to Netflix recently, you may have noticed that everyone’s hero Bill Nye (a.k.a. The Science Guy) has a new show available to stream, ‘Bill Nye Saves The World’). And one of the biggest hits on Netflix in the last year was ‘Stranger Things’ which featured a multiverse theme involving the Upside Down, a world identical to ours except… not. So it makes total sense that these two worlds should collide.
Parallel universes– worlds like ours but different– are a common theme in science fiction. ‘Star Trek’ visited this idea a few times and DC Comics is basically built on in. But is it a real thing?
In this short video, Nye actually confirms that the multiverse theory is a real concept that some scientists actually support.
According to Nye, the real romantic subplot of ‘Stranger Things’ wasn’t between Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard), but Eleven and her delicious frozen Eggo waffles, something that was reaffirmed in the Season One finale when Police Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) left some for the girl that we weren’t sure was still alive.
As for ‘Stranger Things’, we’re sadly not sure that Randall P. Havens will be back as Mr. Clarke in Season Two. He wasn’t in many episodes in Season One, but he did play an important supporting role in the overall narrative.
Unfortunately, this may be our only ‘Stranger Things’ fix for a while. The first season premiered last July, but Season Two won’t arrive until Halloween, October 31 this year.
‘Bill Nye Saves The World’ is a mixture of his classic science show and a talk show with celebrity guests. It is available now to stream.
‘Stranger Things’, created by Matt and Ross Duffer, starring Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Sean Astin, Linnea Berthelsen, and Dacre Montgomery premiers October 31, 2017.
