Episode #129 – Kids on Bikes

The crew explores the “Kids on Bikes” sub-genre of action-adventure movies and shows that seems to be just a popular now, with shows such as Stranger Things, as it was back in its original E.T. and Goonies filled heyday of the 1980s. They discuss some of their favorite movies and shows, both new and old, to try to figure out why they loved them so much back then, and why these types of stories are still so enduring today.
