Stranger Things rocked my world, and everyone else’s. Whether you were a kid in the ’80s and understood all the pop references—to Tolkien, Star Wars, Spielberg, Stand by Me, The Goonies, E.T., and basically all the movies of my childhood—or you were just tapping into the amazing characters and the authenticity of their dynamics together, it was a stunning and engaging piece of television that further proved that the more interesting stories and characters are moving away from movies and into the long form of television’s new incarnations.
