If you’re looking for some serious couch time this weekend, might I recommend spending some quality time with Stranger Things 3. I binge-watched it over 2 days with my wife and son. It’s a romp. If you grew up in the ’80s like I did you’ll love all the pop culture references. Everything from Magnum PI to scrunches in the girl’s hair to the great soundtrack.

Now, if you haven’t watched the first two seasons yet, you’ve got your work cut out for you this weekend. Trust me though, it’s well worth it!

Here’s a little treat. Local actress Gabriella Pizzolo, a Schenectady-area native with Broadway credits shows up for a screen stealing moment toward the end of the series. Without giving too much away her part is pivotal to the plot, important to defeating the Mind Flayer and a really funny scene.
