Stranger Things is one of the best Netflix originals we have ever seen. It’s a Thriller. It’s 80s meets Sci-fi meets amazing theme music meets some kind of nostalgic feelings that make us long for the days of yore. It’s classic sci-fi, aliens and mysterious experiments on bald girls. Along with an adorable cast of kids who are too nerdy to function.
It’s like a nerdy mean girls if mean girls included evil demons that took you to an alternate dimension of creepy evilness. If anything about the 80s was something you loved, you will be obsessed with this show.
The plot of the show is that a kid goes missing. After playing dungeons and dragons with his friends all weekend. Prior to that there is a bald kid being held by the government so they can run secret experiments on her and dunk her in tanks of water.
Because naturally if you are running experiments on kids, tanks of water are a given.
Winona Ryder is the mother of the missing teen and is exceptional in the series. Even if you hated her back in the day, this role completely redeems her for all her transgressions. Even the crazy looks and shoplifting. Give her a damn Emmy already!
So basically we can confidently say you should be hooked by the end of episode 1. There are only 8 episodes in the series so a 2 day binge is all it would take, even after a long day.
Our warning here is only that when you finish you will be like hell bent on watching more. It is so dynamic and entertaining that they had to run a Superbowl commercial for the season 2 trailer. (Which looks fire AF by the way). The second seasons begins THIS HALLOWEEN.
It is exceptional by combining mystery, suspense and action into a plot starring young kids, teenagers and adults. It really bridges the gap between these three vastly different age groups and shows how each age group deals with these crazy sci-fi situations.
The best part is the comical relief from (favorite character alert) Dustin. That curly haired, front tooth lacking little munchkin just says the funniest damn things. He is one of the best characters in the show.
We can’t promise you will love Stranger Things.
If you hate nerdy crap, or suspense, or monsters or sci-fi stuff then you will 100% hate this show. Luckily, we have yet to meet anyone who watched this show and didn’t watch it to completion.
This is one of the only shows we can honestly say deserves a 5 star rating. The last scene of the finale just seals the deal on one of the best shows we have seen in a long time.
#JusticeForBarb (You will eventually get this hashtag if you watch it).
Also you do get to see the monster quite a bit, so its not like one of those stupid monster films that never shows you what it is. Oh man those make us so mad. We need to go drink some chocolate milk and calm down because its making us mad thinking about it.
Like how could you just NEVER show the creature. You actually get a great backstory on the monster and how it all comes into play and connects all the plots in the end.
THIS IS OUR NUMBER ONE RECOMMENDED SHOW ON NETFLIX RIGHT NOW.
5/5 stars for this show and a 10/10 rating for binge worthy success.
