Good morning, federated megafauna

“Ichorous tentacles constrict”… “Intricate, macabre music playing”… Stranger Things audio description subtitles are quite literate

@oli Oh, I still have the rest of Stranger Things 4 to watch

@oli It wasn’t mindblowing or anything but it was okay and had David Tennant in it

@oli Even with Wikipedia I can’t figure out what it was I watched
