here is some awful shit for you (didn't read very far, so I don't know if there are spoilers)http://www.theestablishment.co/2016/08/30/stranger-things-and-the-perils-of-nostalgia/
The Slippery Slope Of NostalgiaStranger Things manages to encapsulate all of the worst elements of clumsily-crafted television--clunky dialogue, blatant sexism, and poorly written characters and scenarios--all celebrated under the auspices of nostalgia, a wistful pining for a past that perhaps never existed. I believe the sensation people are actually nostalgic for is how they remembered television/film looked and felt in the '80s, not what the reality was. Either way, it's a bleak yearning. To revel in a state of nostalgia is to be comfortable; this is dangerous because comfort is in direct opposition to change and growth.We are currently experiencing an absolute explosion of quality, dramatic episodic programming that rivals the best dramatic Hollywood feature film releases. Spectacle may still fill theater seats, but television is where many entertainment aficionados now turn for their story fixes; these stories have all but dethroned the Hollywood feature film monolith. Unfortunately, Stranger Things does little to nothing to propel us forward into this Golden Age of television.
ah, the blatant sexism of a show that subverts the horror movie cliche of killing women for having sex and portrays single mothers as awesome people and slut shaming as a really shameful dastardly act
lol, that got me called a mansplainer
