Stranger Things Netflix Original Series Review


Stranger Things

So I know I am a lit­tle late to the Net­flix party for Stranger Things but wow, I am so glad that I finally watched this show! First off, this show has a very Steven Spiel­berg type of feel to it. It is a cross between ET meets the X-Files and it keeps you on the edge of your seat.  I loved the fact this show takes place in the 80’s and brings you instantly back to a time of sim­pler things and how peo­ple were not so depen­dent on tech­nol­ogy and cell phones. The wardrobe, hair and makeup were spot on and yes we had hor­ri­ble fash­ion back then lol. But, I loved it! Bring back my Jor­dache Jeans and Love’s Baby Soft per­fume please, but I digress back to the review.

The Plot

The story is cen­tered around a small town and five young boys as the main char­ac­ters. Add in a creepy and mys­te­ri­ous gov­ern­ment type of research facil­ity and a strange girl with a shaved head. Did I men­tion the scary alien that is stalk­ing the town and killing peo­ple? Yah you have that too, hence the title Stranger Things! I will not give away too much of the plot as to be a spoiler but I will say. This show gets you hooked in right away, I did jump a time or two so it does get a bit spooky. The act­ing is great, espe­cially the kids. I really believed they were real and they did an amaz­ing job in the cast­ing. I was also very happy to see Mathew Modine and Winona Ryder act­ing in this series.

Ele­ments of the Show

The writ­ing on the show is great, the theme song is addict­ing and awe­some, the set and wardrobe were very real­is­tic. So I give this Net­flix series two thumbs up and I highly rec­om­mend it to any­one. If you like ET and the X-Files then you will love this series. My only com­plaint is that it is only 8 episodes but they have another sea­son com­ing out in early 2017! I can­not wait to see it, they left you on a total cliff hanger so I am really excited to see where the show will go.

My only other com­plaint is, Barb! I loved her char­ac­ter and yes there is a total save Barb move­ment hap­pen­ing online. So watch the show and you will see what I am talk­ing about. #SaveBarb!

If you decide to watch Stranger Things let me know in the com­ments below your thoughts on the show and what do you think is going to hap­pen in sea­son 2. Thank you for read­ing and be sure to sub­scribe and sign up for my newsletter!
