Stranger Brew
November 7, 2017  | By Eric Gould
 
With their corny lines and canned laugh tracks, ‘80s sitcoms are never far from ironic reference. (See SNL’s surrealistic “Beers” from last weekend’s episode.) For the recent premiere of the second season of Stranger Things, Jimmy Kimmel Live has chimed in and created its own mash up for that horror series since it has a fair amount of retro cliches of its own. Of course, then, it’s a perfect match for Perfect Strangers. In this clip called “Perfect Stranger Things," the kids from Hawkins, Indiana meet Larry and Balki and their new roommate… the Demogorgon. (Perfect Strangers is never far from mind – The Leftovers made hay out of a writers room gag, and made that series and star Mark Linn-Baker into an ongoing subplot for season three.) –Eric Gould
