Stranger Things

Scott and I just binged this show and it’s definitely something I must recommend. That is, if you’re a fan of creepy television, mysteries, intrigue and cheesy 80’s flicks. And who isn’t?!

Stranger Things is a Netflix original starring Winona Ryder and a bunch of kids you’ve probably never heard of. It’s reminiscent of Stephen King books and movies and there’s a whole coming-of-age motif that was fairly common in a lot of King’s works. In fact, it’s sort of like E.T. meets Stand By Me meets The Goonies…and if you’ve never seen any of those, don’t worry. Chances are you’ll still get some enjoyment out of this new show because Stranger Things is all new and quite captivating. The characters are well-developed, the writing is both funny and heart-breaking and the cliff-hangers are made for binge watching. There are only eight one-hour episodes in the series so it’s easy to fly through and then immediately regret that decision. Luckily, a second season has been announced but who knows how long that’ll take to produce! Until then, I guess I’ll rewatch it a bit and just try to stay on the other side of the upside-down.
