Analysis: Watch ‘Stranger Things’ for the horror, stay for the ’80s nostalgia
Back then, I couldn’t wait for summer to come because that meant skipping school, catching fireflies with my friends, and lots of popsicles.
Now, as an adult, that means high gas prices, uncomfortable temperatures and, if I’m lucky, cocktails on a patio with friends while the mosquitoes feast on us.
You know what? I think I’ll just stay and spread happiness.
‘Stranger Things’ Season 4
I’m not a huge sci-fi fan, but the thing about “Stranger Things” is that it’s so much more than that.
Season four has been split into two different parts and is getting big – and I’m not just talking in terms of child actors growing up. No spoilers here, but I will say that we learn a little more about the character Eleven, who is played to perfection by Millie Bobby Brown.
The first part of the new season of “Stranger Things” is streaming on Netflix.
“Look at me: XXXTentacion”
But his music and the fascination for him and his life endure.
The documentary is streaming on Hulu.

His new album with The Dukes, “Jerry Jeff”, is a tribute to singer-songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker, who died in 2020.
“Jerry Jeff” was released on Friday.
Something to talk about
She was incredibly open not only about her own struggle, but also about how being a plus-size woman in Hollywood can bring pressure from those who would make her thinner and those who want her to continue portraying plus-size women. large.
She reminded me that you can’t please everyone, so it’s better to be content with yourself.
something to sip
It seems like only yesterday I received a DVD containing the screener for a new NBC drama called “This Is Us”.
Yes, that was so long ago – networks were still sending out DVDs of their new shows.
Almost six years later, the series has come to an end, having broken the hearts of many viewers each week. It tapped into the emotion of life and family in such a way that long after the show ended, people will be talking about the masterful storytelling.
Thank you, Pearsons – and all the other characters in their world – for the joy you’ve brought to your audience over the years.
