  1. If you like 80s nostalgia watch the ABC family sitcom The Goldbergs. It’s underrated TV show but it’s OK

  2. You missed “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”. The scene where Jonathan and Nancy are in separate rooms talking to themselves about each other is a direct reference to Indy and Willie.

  3. Season 2 more like wayward pines the duffer brothers First work and also kali episodes like akira Japanese anime
