I’m sorry but I really don’t get the fascination with Stranger Things. I think it was just an algorithmic assessment of what we should all like and find novel from the 80’s slapped together in a terribly shoddy storyline with an obnoxiously screaming Winona Ryder…made by a couple of guys that had only just been born at the time it was set. We didn’t say douchebag, we didn’t chill in cars, we didn’t have cordless phones in poor homes in the Midwest just yet, fellas.
Shame on you, Netflix. Do your research and stop marketing this kind of quasi-storytelling. But smooth move using a Stephen King font and almost making it look like its his name in the intro. Clearly it’s working. (For some.)
Now go back and pay rights to Stand By Me, E.T., Stephen King, Stephanie Powers (that mom!?)…the list, I’m sure was generated for you before this even began.
