Recently, I felt like trying Netflix and the first thing I saw was ‘Stranger Things’ two seasons one weekend. It was so interesting that I completed two seasons in two days. It literally took me back to the 80’s like travelling in a time machine, that feeling made me feel nostalgic as my childhood belonged there! When a young boy named Will Byers goes missing, his friends, mother and the town goes in search of him. Meantime, a strange girl enters the town and she is called “Eleven”.
Though the CGI wasn’t up to the mark at times, everything else made up for it. Including the performances of the kids in this series. I felt the chief cop was cool too. I felt sorry for Bob in season 2. It was as Steven Spielberg and Stephen King, the king of horror and supernatural came together and made this series. Well, not to forget James Cameron as well.
What really worked most in this series, especially the season was the element of suspense that made it more engrossing, just like a mystery or suspense novel which you don’t feel like keeping down until you complete it. And yes, it did remind me my fav series of all times : The X-files. I heard season 3 is being made. Hope it is as good as season 1 & 2. My rating is 4.5/5. Recommended, if you haven’t seen it yet.
