If you love Stephen King, 1980s and 90s kids horror and remakes, you're going to love media this year. Not only do we get another season of Stranger Things, which is as nostalgic as it gets, this summer, but we'll also be getting updates of Stephen King's It (the continuation from the first remade film) and Pet Cemetary. King has another film coming out next year in the adaptation of his novel Doctor Sleep, the sequel to the popular novel The Shining, along with other projects in the works.
Stranger Things script supervisor Lori Grabowski has made some claims about the higher-ups on Netflix's Stranger Things abusing their power, bullying and harrassing people to the point of her quitting the show despite its incredible success. Things have to be pretty bad if you're willing to risk losing such an opportunity.
Voltron, My Little Pony, Thundercats, Snorks... Were there any bad 80s cartoons? No, they weren't particularly educational, but 80s cartoons were fun and perhaps a bit more innocent than today's media. Did you know that you can watch your favorite 80s cartoons in several places?
Fox is jumping on the 80s train with a new program that is sure to get fans of the 1980s excited. Called "Pose," the series will be a dance musical set in the 1980s in New York. Could the title be a reference to Madonna? We'll have to wait and see! The scripted show will have lots of LGBTQ characters, which sounds a lot like Fox trying to keep up with the times to me, but I'm looking forward to the show.
Oh, I have. And wow, is it good.
In many ways this season is even darker than the first season, but it's not as scary as the hype we'd heard. There are definitely some scary moments but it wasn't the horror-fest that some would have you believe.
Only two more days! Stranger Things season 2 is here this weekend and plenty of people are excited about their favorite show returning to Netflix. If you haven't joined the fandom yet you have some time to binge the first season before then! One thing many friends have discussed is having a Stranger Things party to watch the show together.
We've seen a lot of 80s cartoons get reboots lately. From My Little Ponies to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, some are more popular than they've ever been, while some have tanked horribly. There are many more to come!
Have you heard that season two of Stranger Things will consist of nine episodes instead of eight (as the previous season had)? That's pretty exciting news, but wait, there's more! While the second season will definitely take some new directions, we can still expect the chapter per episode format that fans appreciated from season one. The Stephen King effect really adds to the mood of the show.
Have you heard the news? A Saved by the Bell restaurant is headed to L.A. Dubbed Saved by the Max, it is complete with arcade games, decor and the classic booths that you associate with the show that debuted in 1989 and made up the majority of your 90s childhood alongside Full House. Yes, you can even order a Bayside Burger, but you have to find out when the pop-up restaurant is opening first!
