Stranger Things (season 1)

{4.5/5} “You know it and he knows it. But no one ever says anything until you both start punching and yelling at each other like goblins with intelligence scores of zero.”

Stranger Things season 1, aired in 2016

After a day of Dungeons & Dragons Will disappears. Meanwhile, the nearby scientific lab has had an escape — no one knows what happens there. The sheriff puts together a party to search for Will, and his friends search for him too — they find a young girl with the number 11 tattooed on her arm.

This show takes place in 1983.

It’s a gripping story. I like the relationship between Mike and El. I like how Joyce is able to find a way to communicate with her son who seems to be inhabiting the electrical system of their house. I like how the sheriff gets to the bottom of things no matter what.

It feels like a Spielberg movie from the 1980s — which is probably intentional.

This season has only 8 episodes — hopefully there will be a season 2.

The cast is great, particularly Winona Ryder as the worried mother of the missing kid and newcomer Millie Bobby Brown as the mysterious Eleven.

Created by the Duffer brothers (Hidden).
