After a two year hiatus, one of Netflix’s most anticipated shows, Stranger Things, returns on July 4. There is so much to love about this wonderfully unique series. It’s an action-packed science fiction classic complete with government conspiracy, inter-dimensional monsters and crime-fighting kids. Moreover, the 1980s nostalgia gives the show a special aesthetic; with non-stop references to 80s pop-culture, the show has a special appeal to those who long for the days of high-waisted jeans and Bon Jovi.
