I don't usually watch much TV, but after reading an article about the new Netflix series, "Stranger Things," my wife and I started watching it as a way to relax a bit after our long days of work, moving, cleaning, unpacking, etc. It's fairly short -- just eight episodes. But it hit all of the right buttons for me: nostalgia, retro-pop-culture allusions, and geekery. The setting was a little more small-town than where I grew up, but it was the right time period, and it still felt familiar enough. We both enjoyed it quite a bit.
