    "Stranger Things took me by surprise. I'd heard the hype, but didn't believe it. As someone who grew up in the 80s, I was hooked almost immediately. It just felt like home, a comfort blanket. One of the most surprising, and best, new shows in years. However, it's not a dystopia."

    "Your suggestion of The 100 seems perfect for a dystopian theme show. Nuclear apocalpyse and survivors of the human race, seems very dystopian."

    ""The Twilight Zone" is a good TV show but it's old, I mean it's very old, more than half a century old and the vast majority of the modern TV watching audience will feel too detached watching it. Certainly, it's got its appeal but it's not the kind of show that comes to your mind when you think about Dystopian genre per se. You'd rather find something newer. "
