    Chief Hopper From "Stranger Things" Is The Detective Daddy Of Our Dreams

    Dad bod? Check. Fatherly instincts? Check. Questionable though badass lifestyle? Check.

    There's been much ado about Stranger Things and its supremely excellent young cast, BUT I am here to say that we have not given Chief Hopper his full due.

    For one thing, Hopper's got this anti-authoritarian-but-still-authoritative complex going on that I want a psychoanalytic breakdown on, stat.

    And yes, dude makes some seriously questionable lifestyle choices...

    But he takes his police work so seriously.

    And can you REALLY blame the man for being a little emotionally distant?

    Besides, he wasn't always like that! The man has been through a lot, okay.

    He's protective, but gentle...

    Strict AF...

    But freakin' adorable...

    A good friend...

    And the unique kind of badass who'll carry your kid to safety in one arm and an M16 in the other.

    In conclusion, Chief Hopper is just the whole freakin' package...

    And we wouldn't want to be saved from the Upside Down any other way.
