It is not the series that started the entire current nostalgia movement in the eighties, but of course, it is one of those responsible for its popularization. We must recognize Netflix and the creators of the series, the Duffer Brothers, the eye to see that the story of a girl with telekinetic powers protected by a group of boys in a typical North American city rang bells of thousands of unlocked movie memories 1980s commercials . And that's how 'Stranger Things' works : both as a catalog of infinite nods to the time and as a youth adventure with a vintage flavor. And the fourth season, in a few months.

Another monument to the eighties, responsible for the total revitalization of the franchise and which makes clear Netflix's commitment to the icons of the eighties. In this case, the series has been enthusiastically received by fans without complexes and with certain reluctance by those who have problems with it messing with the canons (Francisco José, attend: they are dolls) , disgusted that He-Man disappears from scene.

{"videoId":"x843oe5","autoplay":false,"title":"Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance - Trailer"}

Absolutely sensational series that serves as a prequel to Jim Henson's classic and influential 1982 film. Here we are told how the tragic events that lead to the dark, almost apocalyptic state that reigns in the film came to pass , a thousand years after what was watch in this Netflix production. The starting point is less attractive because it starts with the description of a prosperous and happy world that falls apart, but it does not matter: the set surpasses all expectations with a unique mix of traditional effects and exquisite CGI, and creations as memorable as the Skeksis court. One of the best original series in Netflix history and a masterpiece of television fantasy.

Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy

{"videoId":"x843oyf","autoplay":false,"title":"Transformers War for Cybertron Trilogy - Trailer"}

Although the Transformers animation series are a real maremagnum where it is difficult to find a way to stand if the kilometric lore of the franchise is not minimally known , this animated series based more on the classic designs of robots than on those inherited from the movies (as it happens with another available on Netflix, 'Prime') and full of sequences of monstrous robotic demolition, it is a delight. The computer animation suits him like a fable, has an estimable twilight tone and is divided into three miniseries, 'Siege', 'Dawn of Earth' and 'Kingdom'

High Score

{"videoId":"x814dhi","autoplay":false,"title":"High Score - Trailer"}

The subject (the origins of different genres and milestones of video games) is so huge that the result is necessarily shallow , and sometimes he does not know how to calibrate the balance between the superficial nostalgic anecdote and analyze why these games were important (what he does so well 'The Toys that Made Us'). But despite the gaps (zero video games outside of North America or Japan, nothing that are not arcade, consoles or 'DOOM') the result is a visual enjoyment and an indispensable appointment for pixel archaeologists.

Cobra Kai

{"videoId":"x836pnp","autoplay":false,"title":"'Cobra Kai', teaser tráiler de la temporada 4 de la serie de Netflix"}

That Netflix is ​​very attentive to nostalgia trends is a fact that is corroborated by the existence of this series, which was born on the ill-fated YouTube Premium payment platform, becoming its only truly successful series . With the third season already filmed, YouTube decided to cancel it and the producers looked for a new platform: it premiered successfully on Netflix in January 2021, with renewal for the fourth and fifth years. The series explores the Miyagi-Verso facing the 'Karate Kid' rivals three decades later, and what seemed like a mere vehicle for self-parody and easy nostalgia turns into a curious dramedy full of heart and with a sense of the memory and milestones of the eighties very peculiar.

The street of terror

{"videoId":"x82dvph","autoplay":false,"title":"La calle del terror (Parte 1): 1994"}

Sympathetic trilogy of youth horror films released successively on Netflix and that not only channels each a respective subgenre ('Scream', slashers , folk horror ), but also reflects the shameless and urgent spirit of horror novels for all RL Stine audiences that he draws inspiration from. Without being carried away by the past and contributing its own mythology, which intertwines between the three films in a very interesting way, it is a Netflix narrative experiment that we hope will be repeated.

Young Adult

{"videoId":"x843xhb","autoplay":false,"title":"Young Adult - Trailer"}

If all this rosy past is making your blood glucose dangerously close to the risk of cardiovascular arrest, we recommend an anti-nostalgia reality bath with one of the best and most bitter comedies of recent times, in the that a Charlize Theron returns to the town of her youth to win back the love of her life. A starting point of pure rom-com from a couple of decades ago, which turns into a tirade against banal memories and the mythologization of the past that leaves with frozen laughter.

This Is Pop

{"videoId":"x843y04","autoplay":true,"title":"This Is Pop - Trailer"}

A documentary that addresses the pop music industry, but often looking back, that is, digging into its roots to try to understand what characterizes music that becomes a global success . ABBA, brit-pop or Boyz II Men, among many others, star in a series perhaps too lost between glamor and stars, but which releases a few clues for students of nostalgia and why hits are so often recovered from decades ago.

The Speedcubers

{"videoId":"x843yno","autoplay":false,"title":"The Speed Cubers - Trailer"}

One of the mythical toys of the eighties, the Rubik's cube, is the excuse for a documentary about the quick-resolution competitions of the game . Two friends, world champions of the cube, develop a healthy rivalry that also has a special component, because one of them has an autistic disorder. A documentary about overcoming obstacles, whatever they may be, and that uses one of the most timeless puzzles in history as an excuse.

The Mitchells against the machines

{"videoId":"x809o2t","autoplay":false,"title":"The Mitchells vs. the Machines - Trailer"}

A gem of animated family adventures bathed in the unmistakable pointy humor of producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, writers of 'The LEGO Movie' and the superb 'Spider-Man: A New Universe '. That is, experts in the power of memories and the past, and how to reconfigure them so that they remain just as powerful. In this case, a family trip and a confrontation with an artificial intelligence of crazy power are the excuse for a film about leaving the past behind and detecting its mistakes to build a better future.

GLOW

{"videoId":"x7zo9p5","autoplay":false,"title":"GLOW | Teaser"}

Not all the nostalgia of the eighties are going to be dolls, comics and video games ... there is also wrestling. Specifically, the GLOW league of women's wrestling, a very strange setting for a story of empowerment and vindication magnificently performed by Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin. Sensational setting, especially unraveling the murky goings-on of the cable TV industry of the time. Unfortunately, it was canceled before we could give us a final season that closed its story, based on real events.
