Stranger Things

Like most people, especially of a certain generation – X to be exact; I was captivated by the Netflix original series “Stranger Things”. For me, it had all the nostalgia from the 1980’s that I remembered from my childhood; video games, toys, clothes, certain phrasing, family dynamics and more. It felt comfortable, familiar, like something from my past – and that was the point. The biggest character in this series, at least to me, is the timeframe and all its glorious “retro” aesthetics and appeal. I of course am biased because I too am an Xer, but now having heard that a 3rd season is a go, I can continue to relive my past…at least for a little longer.
