Is there a way to stop the kids from growing?

Well I have to say one of the things I loved about Stranger Things was that it didn't make fun of the '80s. (e.g., "Look at our new, huge 25" TV with a built-in VCR!") This teaser seems to be crossing that line.

That said, are there any "hidden gems" I missed other than the actors?

I suspect that the mocking theme is solely a teaser thing.

Season 1 was fairly subtle, but season 2 certainly ramped up the 80s cliches. Hopefully season 3 doesn't go overboard.

They have enough "film" on the child actors that they should just CGI 3 seasons of the kids frozen in time. I'm afraid the show will decline each season as they age; especially when so much time passes between seasons.

Kevin Arnold at 17 wasn't the same as Kevin at 14.

Here's a thought: Just have the kids age normally and have an appropriate time gap between seasons.

Just like they already did.

As a kid who came of age in the 1980's, it's amusing how they nail the vibe of that time.

Responding to myself, apparently one hidden gem is 47 seconds in. "Hunt for Red October" is the book being displayed at WaldenBooks. Russian connection?

And mentioned this in the S2 thread, but this means the summer of Back to the Future.

Hate having to wait that long, but looking forward to Cary Elwes joining the cast as the mayor. (Pretty sure that's his voice in the teaser)

the mall is greatness.... such an iconic 80s thing. It's perfect. I doubt they go over the top with the schtick within the show. This was a fake ad which was very apropos to the time.

And they nailed the businesses and patrons.

I spent so much time in malls in the 80s.

Waldenbooks, Sam Goody, Radio Shack, Orange Julius, Wicks n Sticks.....

Although I might accuse them of a bit of plagiarism......

Red Oaks season 2 primer was a fake ad for Red Oaks Country Club in full blown 80s cheesiness. the show itself while fully immersed in 80s never used it as schtick really, they were real people and not too many 80s cliche's.

Spent many hours in Sam Goody and Waldenbooks growing up. Wicks N Sticks was the go-to place for mom and grandma gifts.

Was bummed out when Sam goody started diversifing and selling non-music stuff. At the time I didn't know what exactly it was but it was the start of the decline of physical music.

The mall is bogus. I didn't see an arcade. How can you have a mall from the 80s and not have an arcade??

Thought that too. But the arcade featured heavily in season 2. And standalone arcades were prominent too. I bet they have one in the mall as well but you wouldn't advertise it. Not a name brand franchise type thing.

Not that it makes a difference, but they're dropping it right in on top of the final season of GoT
