Stranger Things: One of My Favorite Shows


Stranger Things, Season 1, Netflix
Stranger Things, Season 1

Have you watched Stranger Things? If you haven't you should. This series is fun to watch for many reasons. First, nostalgia, the story takes place in a small town called Hawkins, Indiana, in 1981. The show's directors, the Duffer Brothers, take care to recreate the style and look of this time period, which of course is when many of us grew up. Second, it's scary, but not too scary. I'm not a fan of horror usually, but this ranks up there with me watching things by M. Night Shyamalan, his movies also have fear/horror elements going on, but the other elements are so well done, that I can get past the scary parts and enjoy the experience. Third, the cast is awesome. Stranger Things is full of new actors that we have not seen before, as well as, some old favorites. You've probably heard of Millie Bobby Brown if you have a television or a phone. She is the lead character and plays Eleven "El" masterfully. Finn Wolfhard plays Mike, Gaten Matarazzo plays Dustin, Caleb McLaughlin plays Lucas, and Noah Schnapp plays Will. The story is told from these twelve year old characters' perspectives. Winona Ryder plays Will's mom, Joyce Byers. David Harbour plays the local chief of police, Jim Hopper. The story begins with the disappearance of Will Byers, and follows his friends as they try to find him. The Duffer Brothers were influenced by films and pop culture from the 80s like the Goonies, Stand By Me, E.T., and Alien to name a few. These influences add to the sense of nostalgia and familiarity in a fun way, while still being something new and unexpected to watch. So, let me know what you think. Both seasons 1 and 2 can be streamed on Netflix. Enjoy!
