Stranger Things is about the disappearance of a kid under mysterious circumstances and his friends attempts at finding him. While searching for their missing friend, they stumble on Eleven, an odd girl who appears to have superhuman abilities.
It’s set in the 80’s, so references to that decade are a plenty. Stranger Things uses the classic regular-kids-in-a-big-adventure story mixed with science fiction and horror and is clearly influenced by 80’s movies of those genres. We can find inspiration from Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, John Carpenter and others, but it’s all done so well, it doesn’t feel like a overloaded ripoff and it stands proudly on its own.
I grew in the 80’s, so it didn’t take long to grab my attention, I was sold in the first 10 minutes. I loved it. The Duffer Brothers did an amazing job with Stranger Things. Easily the biggest surprise of the year in terms of TV Shows.
Can we get a second season?
