Its 1985, and the gangs hormones are running rampant as is a new monster more scary than a spiral perm. Prepare for a pacy, racy time back in Hawkins
There is a scene in 30 Rock where Jenna gets cast not, as she first assumes, as a main protagonist on Gossip Girl, but as one of their mothers. She has to lie down as her daughter wails Oh, mother, I cant believe youre dying of old age. Dont cry for me, Tartine, murmurs Jenna bravely. Ive had a full life. Oh the things Ive seen! The first Clinton administration. The Nagano Olympics. Microsoft Windows 95. But Im 41 now. Time to die.
This moment plays in the back of my mind every time I watch Stranger Things, now back for its third season on Netflix. It is precision engineered to hook millennials-and-below with maximum plot (so new to you, my fresh-faced, pink-livered darlings, but actually so, so old!) and blast the rest of us down a vortex of nostalgia so that we know not which side is up. We may ourselves be in the Upside Down that has haunted the sleepy town of Hawkins, Indiana since the Duffer Brothers concocted their homage to the 80s and caused a streaming sensation back in what seems like the distant days of 2016.
