    11 "Stranger Things" Characters Who Need More Screen Time In Season 5

    I will never get over the injustice of Barb from Season 1 of Stranger Things. I think it’s my sworn duty as an obscene fan of this show and an honorary member of the Hellfire Club to declare the sidepiece characters from the show who deserve more airtime than Yuri Ismaylov’s crusty plane full of peanut butter.
