One of the big breakout hits of this year is the new Netflix series Stranger Things. The show is set in 1983 and follows the disappearance of a young boy in small town Indiana. One of the amazing things about this series is how well it captured life in 1983. The sets, clothing style, music, and overall ambiance, nails the feel of the 80’s tremendously well. It’s one of the best representations of the decade that I’ve seen captured in a modern TV show.
I’m going to put up a big spoiler warning here, since it’s pretty much impossible to talk about the show in any depth without giving things away. You’ve been warned, below the cut I’ll be talking freely about major plot points.
