An Architecture Professor Explains Why Malls Are Dying

In the 1980s, malls were a place to meet, to hang out, to find your entertainment while socializing. Malls made "deciding what to do" simple because they offered a variety of shopping, movies, restaurants, and arcades. But with the rise of online shopping, home video, social media, and online gaming, going anywhere at all to socialize just seems like more trouble than it's worth. Architecture professor Ellen Dunham-Jones goes way more into detail about the rise and fall of shopping malls. (via Digg)

What is this strange fascination with "Stranger Things" specifically, and weird shows like "Walking Dead", "Lost", and all the rest?  I must not be 'getting' it, since I don't share this phenomenon, yet I don't feel that I am missing anything all that important either.
