It’s year-end time, folks, and Paste Magazine’s TV section has already kicked off the season by naming its picks for the best shows of the year, plus its picks for the best new shows of the year, which I contributed two write-ups for. (Guess which ones!) I don’t mind saying aloud and right off the bat that I very strongly disagree with the number one choice on this list; I never found time to write about Stranger Things, so let me just note that while I enjoyed it, it’s little more than an 80’s nostalgia-fest, as most contemporary stories set in the 80’s tend to be. (You can also do worse as far as 80’s nostalgia-fests go, so there’s also that.)
Anyways, dig in! It’s a good one.
