    I keep thinking of the actor who played Hurley in "Lost". That guy will never not be Hurley. It just ain't gonna happen.

    Watched a theory video suggesting that the mind flayer might be 001. Which could explain why the upside-down reflects the real world, and why it has a connection to Eleven and the laboratory. Brenner might have lost 001, and started to put together what might have happened to him/her after Eleven opened the doorway.

    I'd be okay with it developing somewhat like that.

    Finished season 3 today. A little weird that it ends with music from the future (for the characters), especially if they do season 4.

    Kind of weird that Billy and Max’s parents were shown so little (and Mike and Nancy’s) when the kids are gone for so long.

    Billy’s mustache was disgusting!

I'll definitely admit that a major draw is the time period. I find it entertaining as hell.

    Same here (just turned 59) I would be interested to know how kids/teenagers today see this show, seen that they don't have the nostalgia factor. Do they appreciate the retro factor nevertheless? Anyone looked this show with his/her kids?

    I have 5 neices who are 12, 17, 18, 21 and 23...they all absolutely love the show. I've started it a second time with the 12 year old and the retro thing doesn't even really come into play other than a few laughs about the phones, clothes and such. She loves the music.

    I have a 21 year old and a 28 year old. They love the show. I would analogize their relationship to the setting (time and place) to my feelings about the world in 1967-1970 or so--I was born in 1966, so don't really recall those years, but I have a sense of that time period and a fascination with it. My kids feel the same way about the 1980's.

    My niece is 14 and nephew a sophomore in college. They fell for the show when it started a few years back. My niece is a serious superfan, and still has a crush on Mike.

    80s styles and designs, and entertainment, have been coming back into vogue the last several years, so kids are pretty hip to it.

    We gave my niece a cassette radio just like the pink one in the show a couple of Christmases back. It does also have bluetooth so she can stream through it, but she loves the thing. Even has a few tapes to play in it.

    I have quite a few younger people who work with me that are really into it, but were either very young or not even born in the 80's. It is kind of similar what "Happy Days" was to my generation.
