- Page 1

Stranger Things is probably one of the biggest shows in recent memory to tackle just about everything we love about TV and movies from the 80s. It follows a group of pre-teens in 1980s middle America who play Dungeons and Dragons, run from bullies, and defend their town from the evil creatures from the "Upside Down" alongside their friend with psychic powers. It's pretty much everything an 80s kid could want, and its immense success has gotten it a second season.

Of course, a show this rooted in 80s pop culture was bound to attract attention from some 80s mainstays, and what show reflects the decade better than Perfect Strangers? The misadventures of Larry Appleton and his cousin Balki Bartokomus entertained America for a whopping eight seasons, and even spawned the beloved 90s mainstay Family Matters.
