I feel like it’s too hard to describe how awesome Stranger Things is, but I will try.
After a game night at his friend’s house, Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) goes missing. His best friends start to look for him, but find a mysterious girl named Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) instead. The friends and a few others start to realize that there is a lot more going on in their small town than they could have imagined.
This is an incredible throwback to the ‘80s. Each episode is filled with nostalgia from films like Stand By Me and ET, among others. And the concept is just amazingly different.
While the more seasoned cast still shines, it’s the child actors who really stand out in this show. I dare you not to get chills watching them.
Final say: The stranger the better. ★★★★★
