gratitude-a-thon day 2004: a good binge

With the world so completely out of its ever loving mind, I find solace where I can. A good binge-worthy series is often my drug of choice. And, no calories!

I couldn’t get myself to watch Stranger Things, despite the fact that even my dog had apparently watched it and loved it. I am not a sci-fi kind of girl, and I don’t like being scared either.

But, with a pedophile about to be elected in Alabama, one must do what one must do. And so, without movies offered in our hotel this past weekend, we hooked up my computer to the tv (oh, don’t be impressed, actually Ally did) and decided to give Stranger Things a try.

Peter and I were immediately hooked. A little bit Poltergeist, a little bit E.T., with some Stand By Me and Close Encounters of the Third Kind thrown in, this 80’s story is an absolute blast.

A powerful girl, an honest cop, a corrupt government agency, a devoted mom, a teenge love story, a geeky gang of outsider boys, a mystery, all living together in that time when you could ride your bike around and not fear being abducted.

If you need a diversion, this is it. Good, innocent, alternative universe fun.
