Y’all, Stranger Things is soooo good! It’s a great mix of humor, drama, nostalgia, spy/espionage, SciFi, fantasy, love story, friendship, coming of age story…EVERYTHING!
The writing is superb…the character development is spectacular (the Duffer brothers are on a roll)…the acting is top notch (I mean everyone is great…Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Dacre Montgomery, Priah Ferguson, Matthew Modine, Sean Astin, Maya Hawke, Brett Gelman, Cary Elwes, Alec Utgoff…I mean the whole dang cast, kudos to the casting department!)
The visuals are amazing…there is just enough darkness to make it scary/suspenseful…the special effects are amazing…the costuming and soundtrack/score really transports you back in time. And it’s definitely binge-able and it keeps you engaged, entertained and coming back for more! My only con with the series is Season 2…it wasn’t as fascinating as 1 and 3…it was kinda lackluster. Overall, I’m a huge fan of this series! Currently streaming on Netflix.
