Stranger Things – NETFLIX – 2016

Winona Ryder, Matthew Modine, kids on bicycles, and Dungeons & Dragons all wrapped up in the newest Netflix original. This show is reminiscent of a Stephen King story as well as Goonies and Lost. Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) has gone missing after playing Dungeons and Dragons. His mother (Ryder), brother (Charlie Heaton), and friends are looking for him. While out looking the friends run into a girl, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), around their age who is being hunted down by bad guys.
There are a lot of questions to be answered from the first episode that are not the normal questions that come from predictable hour dramas. I am really enjoying this show and it feels nostalgic for those who grew up in the 80’s.
Great cinematography, acting, and direction will keep me watching this entire series and because it is on Netflix I can binge it and wait a year for the next season.

Grade: A
