This tv series has been by far one of my most favourite tv shows to watch. I have genuinely fallen in love with all the characters and their strange life that they are living. I would highly recommend this series to anyone over the age of 12 because some scenes in the series may be too scary for those under that age.
This series is definitely thoughtful in its cinematic details! It offers fantastic attention to detail. The characters are very well developed, relatable, and likeable (or dislikable). Whoever wrote the script had some sound scientific knowledge and writes from a place of personal familiarity. ( parallel universe, sensory isolation, government drug testing…) The small town setting enhances the shows enduring intrigue and it doesn’t fail in engaging and entertaining the viewer. My opinion is that a viewer of age 16 or above could enjoy this level of creativity while those under simply do not have enough life experience to get the most of this Brilliant Series! In my opinion, this series is directed at people with the maturity and understanding to separate fact from fiction and who have some knowledge of the complexity of human relations. If you’re looking at the TV for your families morals, you won’t find it here, but HEY! As we all know TV has nothing to do with morals! There is, however, some ethical behaviour in the form of courage, friendship, hope, love, commitment, childlike innocence, forgiveness, general kindness, and understanding.Fantastic show that teens will love if you’re a fan of sci-fi, the 80’s, Winona Ryder, Steven Spielberg, or if you want just a great show to watch. I saw commercials for this show and was hooked in immediately! These are the type of shows that should be on the air because it is fantastic! Loved they made people look real, unlike any other network that would get supermodels for this show, they instead went for kids who could act. Very impressed, kind of show that you can watch again over and over its just a lot of fun. Might be a little scary for younger kids but as a 16-year-old who is a fan of the 80’s this was an incredible 8 episode show and can’t wait for more. 5/5 stars for a great twist.
OMG, Stranger things, I honestly can’t even describe how amazing this tv series this is. lets just say i watched the whole season as soon as it came out and then i re watched it again the next day. This show has a lot of twist and turns that leave you bitting your nails and sweating like crazy. My absolute favourite character in this show is for sure Dustin. he is just so cute and funny and I really want to meet him in real life. I rate this show a 10/10 and would recommend it for the ages 13+ because of the swearing and violence.
I absolutely love Stranger Things it is my favourite t.v. show and I think it is so creative. Each person has such different but unique personalities, I am always at the edge of my seat after every episode. I’m incredibly excited to watch season 3 and to see what they will do this time. I’m not really into Sci-fi but this show has definitely changed my opinion on that, it does also have mystery in it too. I highly recommend watching.
I absolutely loved the TV series of Stranger Things and I would definitely recommend it! Personally I believe this show is suitable for ages 13 and up as it has some scenes that wouldn’t be appropriate to younger viewers. This TV series is set in the 80’s and follows a boy named Will that has gone missing, his friends are on the journey to find him even though it is said that Will is most likely dead. They meet a supernatural girl named 11 that helps them on their journey. I love the relationships between the characters and how they grow as the season goes on. I rate this show a 10/10 as it always keeps you in suspense and wanting to watch more. I cannot wait until season 3!
I would defiantly recommend watching Stranger Things. It is a great series and anyone who enjoys watching sci-fi/ mystery should watch it. It is based in Hawkins Indiana in the 80’s, because of this there is great music and themes on the show it also covers some 80s stereotypes. When a kid named will goes missing a conspiracy begins to be uncovered, involving a lab and a mysterious girl named Eleven who seems to have escaped from there.
I love this series because I think that it’s for all ages, this is because the people
involved in the show are all different ages. Such as mike and his friends, their parents, Hopper and teenagers Nancy and Jonathan. This means that it is easy to relate to the show. My favourite character would be Eleven, because she is the most emotional and driven character, because of the torment she went through in the lab.
Things just keep getting better as the series goes on, it kept me on the edge of my seat wanting more.
A great T.V show, can’t wait for the 3rd season. 😉
i am in love. this TV seires is by far the best 2 season of a TV show i have ever watched, it keeps you entertained and you’re eyes glued to the screen. There is a little girl named jane/eleven, she was taken away to live in a hospital where she would be trained to move things with her mind. she was scared and alone. back in a town a group of young boys named lucas will dustan and mike! one night Will was riding home and was taken by the demegorgan. and this all i am going to say about the shows story line. The girl named eleven does all in her power to find will, will they find him or will they not, thats for me to know and for you to find out. eleven and mike start to slowly develop feeling for each other until eleven is gone…. the show can sometimes be a little to much, some days you might go to bed having all these strange this going through your head like, ‘THE DEMOGOGAN IS COMING!!!’ but, its not haha! i would recommend this TV show to everyone above 10. i would rate it a 10/10!
I 100% recommend this tv series!!! It is a sci-fi, mystery/action/drama basically it’s got everything and its set in the 80s which is even better. I really liked the idea of it being set in the 80s as I never got to experience the 80s which makes it even that more interesting and fun to watch! This show takes place in a fictional town named hawkins where a group of boys all friends end up falling into trouble when they try to find out where there missing friends will went. As they find out more and more evidence as to where he has gone they meet new people such as a girl named eleven. This is an amazing and thrilling tv series that I definitely recommend.
Stranger things has been very popular recently, and has a really good storyline. It is set in 1980’s and is about this group of friends who are all together like everything is normal, but that night one of them disappears on his way home. His mother is frantic, and will not give up hope that he is gone, and everyone else has no idea what happened jumping form one idea to another.
The friends decide to investigate for themselves, but they find weird things are happening.
I highly recommend this series to anyone, even if you are not a fan of sci fi, as you will fall in love with the characters.
When I first started watching it, it didn’t really interest me, but I persisted as so many people had told me it was worth watching. I ended up really liking it, so I would recommend to just start watching it if you are unsure.
I rate this a 9/10 and suggest it for ages 10+
stranger things is my favourite tv show at the moment. every episode i watch end sin a cliff hanger, then i have to watch the next episode and the next and next. Stranger things got me hooked from the start and once i started watching… i couldn’t stop. The characters are have really good personalities and they all have the traits of funny and relatable. My favourite character would most likely be eleven because she is really interesting. Stranger things has lots of turns and cliff hangers, and i would definitely recommend it.

‘Stranger Things’ Directed by the Duffer Brothers, is an extremely captivating, thrilling tv series. The series follows four friends; Will, Mike, Dustin and Lucus in a small town called Hawkins. The series is based in the 80s and follows the unlikely events in a supernatural environment. The tv series demonstrates some of the common stereotypes of the set time. Everything in Hawkins seems normal until one night, one of the boys goes missing, an event which would change lives forever. Throughout the series, the secrets of Hawkins are uncovered and the way the main characters perceive Hawkins is altered immensely. Each episode consists of numerous twists and turns which keep you captivated and craving to watch more. My favourite part of ‘Stranger Things’ is the ending of season two which demonstrates that when everybody finally felt safe and free from danger in Hawkins, something, a mysterious, dangerous creature, was watching them, lurking in the shadows of the strange town. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the ‘Stranger Things’ series. I would rate this a 10/10.
Stranger Things is an incredible new Netflix ordinal. Its bassed in hawkins Indiana USA. I personally love this new series as it is full of creativity, action and it is for sure a nail biter. This series will have have you on the edge of your seat ready to press next episode. There are always plot twists and the there cast are just incredible. I highly recommend this series.
Once I had finished the first episode I was hooked and immediately watch the rest. The Netflix serious Stranger Thing is set during the early 1980’s in the town of Hawkins, Will Bryers goes missing while riding home from his friend Mike’s house after playing a board game with his other two friends Dustin and Lucas. When riding home he got taken by a Demogorgon to the upside down. When Mike, Dustin and Lucas went looking for him they found Eleven, Eleven which soon became their friend and helps them give answers to where Will could be. I recommend this to the ages of 13+.
I just about watched the first AND second season of this TV show in almost less than a week and I feel in love. It is such a good TV series and I would reccomend this series to anyone and everyone! The plot begins when a young boy [Will] goes missing and his mother [Joyce] believes against all odds or proof otherwise that he’s still alive and out there. His group of friends believe so too and try extremely hard to bring him back home wherever its is he may be. The story follows after the three other boys but they find a girl in the woods while looking for Will and she seems to have supernatural powers. It follows the lives of these characters and their families and friends with many twist and turns through out the 2 seasons. Every episode leaves you on the edge of your seat, just wanting to know what happens next. My favourite character would have to be either dustin or mike, dustin is a entertaining and unique character thats easy to like. Mike, He is the leader of his group known as the ‘losers’ around their school and he seems to have a close connection with Eleven , the girl they find in the woods. He plays his role really well and I just like his characters personality in general. In fact they are all amazing actors and the show has been nominted for so many awards already. I am so excited for the next season [season 3] , which doesn’t come out till next year which is a long wait but it will be worth it i believe.
This TV show is quite interesting. I found that it had a weird, freaky but incredible story line with characters suited perfectly to their role. I see why stranger things got such an amazing review and why everybody raves about it because of how cool it is. It is weird to think that someone thought of the story line and thought that it would interest people but it has thoroughly. I love this TV for everything it is. I wouldn’t change anything about it and would recommend it to an older age group for some of the things in it and how it may be scary to younger children. I love this Tv show and give it a 10/10!
Stranger things is one of my absolute favourite T.V series right now! I love how the group of boys share such a special friendship. My favourite character is Eleven because she is a strong, independent girl. The story line is artistic and the pictures illustrate the town these children grow up in. It is about a boy named Will who goes missing and ends up in the upside down. There is humor, love and a bit of horror in this series which makes it very interesting! The friends do everything in their power to save Will and help Eleven. After I watched the first episode I was hooked and I finished the series in no time! It is based in 1983 and has several characters whose personalities add an intriguing twist to the mix of friendships. I love everything about this show including the actors, music and the idea of it! I rate this a 10/10 and recommend it to all my friends!
The Stranger things cast are the new breathtaking Netflix original drama stars. The director himself was inspired to authorise a film like this by a time when tales of science fiction captivated different audiences, e.g when Joyce’s 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing. I thought he was going to go missing for the rest of all the series? In this magnificent film they were people who got to the point so it got more absorbing. Yes some people dislike the film, that is there opinion, but if you haven’t seen it yet and you like drama, romance and breathtaking moments in a film I highly recommend it.
Stranger things is by far my favourite show. Sci fi, mystery, drama and a bit of comedy all in one. It follows 3 boys as they try to find their friend. It is one for many ages and I absolutely recommend. 10/10
Stranger things are an American old-fashioned based tv show that is about a group of boys hanging out together doing what boys do. One night one boy goes missing and so do more and more people gradually. This is an action, drama and sad tv series. this is definitely a thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’ is an absolutely fantastic show. The characters and storyline are so detailed and diverse that it makes the show a must watch. The series revolves around the story of a boy that goes missing, and his mother believes against all odds that he is still alive, so with the help of the sheriff and the boys friends, she sets out to find him, and she wont stop until he is found. Stranger Things is a show where you have to watch every episode, they all have ties to each other and some things might not make sense until you finish the season. My favourite characters are Dustin, Mike and Will. Personally they are the funniest and most relatable characters. I also like the character Eleven, even though she has very limited dialogue she is still able to express how she feels through her actions and facial expressions. I would recommend this show for anyone aged 13 and over as there is some course language, violence and things that younger people may not understand. Overall I rate this show a 5/5 and definitely recommend that you watch it.
If you don’t like this Netfilx show you are silly!! stranger things is an amazing horror/adventure show it has a few good jump scares and lots of tissues senes. I love how the first season follows perfectly with the second season! Lots of times actors have an awful accent they they are trying to do. but with stranger things they have done an amazing job! When I first head millie bobbies browns real voice i was taken back! Stranger things also dose an amazing job at special effects! they where out of this world. I think that 11+ is a good age to start this life changing journey! happy watching!
Stranger things is a series. I really enjoy the friendship of the boys and eleven as they form and have such close and caring relationships with their little funny rules. They are hilarious boys and are amazing together. My favourite character is even, she wishes everyone to follow their word and be kind and caring. she also is sweet and thoughtful and respects her family and friends. I don’t like when eleven disappears from Mick’s life, that is sad. I would recommend this movie to everyone who is up for something different as you are on the edge of your seat for all of th
Once I watched the first episode I was hooked. I binge watched the rest of season 1 and then moved onto season 2. I love everything about this tv series, the music, the characters, and the filming. This tv series reminds me of the movie ‘IT’ as the children seem to have the same motives in terms of hunting down a predator. My favourite character would have to be either eleven or mike because their acting is both very good. I can’t wait for season 3 to see what happens to Will as his story isn’t finished. I would recommend stranger things to children aged 12 and over because there is violence and some sex scenes. I rate this tv series a 10/10 🙂
The tv series Stranger Things on Netflix is my absolute favourite show right now, and I am super sad I have to wait another year for another season!! This show intrigued me so much, because it was something different from everything else. At first I had no interest in it because so many people were telling me to watch it, and I don’t like to watch those popular shows because they are usually overrated, but after season 2 came out and the faze sort of blew over, I watched both seasons in 4 days!! I loved this tv series not only because it was unique, but because it was mixed genres I am interested in. I like fantasy and odd things, but I also like a little bit of scare. This is usually hard to find because it is either horror or not horror, but this show supplies the amount I want, there are some good jump scares but they are bearable. My favourite characters would have to be Mike, Dustin and Steve, although this is one of the shows where you just come to love every character because they are all important and have great personalities. I would say if you don’t mind some jump scares this is good, but if you are easily confused, the storyline is a tad complex.
Stranger Things is my favourite show. I have seen it so many times. I absolutely love all of the characters as they add so much to the show. I love the story as I have never seen anything like it. It is very different to other shows and has so many plot twists. I love how every episode ends on a cliff hanger but is set as if it is a movie which makes it perfect for binge watching! It is set in the 80s which is a time I didn’t know much about but it was cool to see in the show and I enjoyed how it was set then and not now. There were so many awesome special effects which make it look incredible. I loved how original and creative it is and would rate it 100/10. I would recommend to anyone but just a warning it may be a bit scary for little kids but is still really good.
Stranger Things is set in 1983 America in a fictional town called Hawkins, Indiana. The story is set around a boy named Will who goes missing one night riding home from a friend’s house. The night after Will’s friends Mike, Lucas and Dustin go out into the woods to find Will but end up finding someone else. Eleven. A girl with a shaved head who is lost in the woods. They take her home and soon learn that she is on the run from ‘bad men.’ While Will’s mum, Joyce and Hawkins’ chief police, Hopper are out looking for Will they soon discover Eleven used to live in Hawkins Lab and was an experiment as she has telekinesis and can do things with her mind. Over the course of a week, the characters discover what happened to Will and how to town of Hawkins is changing. I would definitely recommend this show to anyone over the age of 10 or 11 as it may be scary but is definitely worth the thrill.
This is such an outstanding series, it is so individually spectacular, like no other series existing. It has now become one of my favourite shows to watch due to the mystery and captivating story line. I love that it is set in the 1980’s as it gives us a flashback of the good ol’ days and all the old technology, bikes, ect. The characters are very cute and very well suit the show. I like how different each one is but how their personalities compliment each other. I normally don’t enjoy sci-fy movies but this show really caught my attention and has brang on a love of the myteries and the outside world. My favourite character is Eleven as her story is very interesting and I feel there is still so much more to discover about her. I would reccomend this show to 12 years and older as some parts, lines may be a but confusing or hard to understand or may be somewhat cray for them. I would definitely recommend this to anyone as everyone would enjoy no matter of there interests. I rate this series a 9/10.
This tv series has been by far one of my most favourite tv shows to watch. I have genuinely fallen in love with all the characters and their strange life that they are living. The series focuses on the night that Joyce Byers’ son went missing. With the help of Will’s best friends as well as his mother Joyce, they set off into a terrifying investigation on his disappearance. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl that could help them find Will. I would highly recommend this series to anyone over the age of 12 because some scenes in the series may be too scary for those under that age.
Oh wow, this series is amazing. My friends convinced me to start watching this on Netflix and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The plot is highly creative and throughout every single episode, I wondered who came up with the concept and what goes through their head. Although I thoroughly enjoyed it, I could only watch it when my younger sister was out of the house as a lot of the scenes were a bit too intense for some viewers. The series very much took on a sci-fi genre and it was really well executed. Although the first couple of episodes are a little bit slow, it really picks up and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Definitely for people at least in yr 7 but I would definitely recommend watching it, 10/10
I just binged watched the first and second season of this TV show in less than a week and I feel in love. It is such a good TV series and I wouldn’t be surprised if I watched it again in the holidays. The story follows 4 boys and one of them goes missing, but they find a girl in the woods while looking for Will and she seems to have supernatural powers. It follows the lives of these characters and their families and friends with many twist and turns thought the 2 seasons. Every episode leaves you on the edge of your seat, just wanting to know what happens next. My favourite character would have to be Mike, the main boy character. He is the leader of his group known as the ‘losers’ and he seems to have a close connection with 11, the girl they find in the woods. He plays his role really well and I just like his character. I am so excited for the next season, which doesn’t come out till next year which is a long wait but it will be worth it.
Stranger Things the tv show is soooo good. It is so interesting and mysterious and keeps me on the edge of my seat. I just want to know what happens. It is so good I watched season 1 twice and I am currently watching season 2. I love season 1 a lot more but season 2 is still so so good.It is a sci-fi/horror show but it isn’t too scary. It is so so good to watch and I highly recommend it to anyone age 12+. I rate it 10/10
A tv show I would recommend to watch is Stranger Things. The show is so intriguing and you literally cannot stop watching it once you start. It’s so mysterious and thrilling and all of the characters have their own stories. The kids that take place in the series are friends and they have different experiences with the horrifying ‘upside down’. Toothier, as friends they work together to find out more about this strange world and things going on around them without getting themselves into trouble. I would recommend this series to nyone who enjoys a captivating thriller to binge watch!!!
StrangerThings is the type of show that you have to tell all your friends about! It’s got everything a good sci fi show should have, and more! I was extremely disappointed when it ended, but I can’t wait for season 2! I really love this show and recommend it to anyone and everyone!
It is filmed so beautifully and the casting is amazing. All the characters are super loveable and the plot is genuinely engaging. I love the way it is set in the past but the technology used to film it is so high quality making you feel immersed. I love how it has all of the conventions to engage audiences; horror, drama and a hint of romance. I would definitely recommend it
The strange things tv show has to be one of the strangest tv show I’ve ever watched, but I loved watching every single minute of it. The series is fairly new and Netball has come up with a magnificent series full of scoff and horror which engages viewers greatly. It is a series of supernatural things that involve when a kid is gone missing. The script is amazing and the kids do a magnificent job at portraying their character. I would rate this tv series a 9/10 and would recommend it for anyone who loves a good but strange tv show.
I have only just started watching this show and I have fallen in love with it. I love all the cast and characters and I think they all do a great job playing their characters. I love the genres of the show. I think that if you love sci fi and horror this is for you. It is also based around the 80s so if you love that time then you should definitely watch this show. It as one a few awards and they are now making a season 2 so if you fall in love with the show there is another season coming out! Definitely go watch!!
Stranger Things has to be one of my all time favourite tv shows, it has everything you could want; amazing characters/actors, an awesome and fast paced storyline, great soundtrack and visuals, and if you are a fan of anything 80’s, it includes the best homages to 80’s sci-fi (E.T., the Goonies, Firestarter etc.). I absolutely loved the way they made it. The cinematography is so creative and artistic, and the overall 80’s aesthetic is so visually pleasing and refreshing. My favourite bit about it is definitely the Kids – Mike, Dustin, Lucas and Eleven, who just bring so much light to the dark story, and definitely carry the show in my opinion. It is really cool to see how much trust the showrunners put into these kids, who’s talents are well beyond their years, especially Millie Bobby Brown, who plays eleven, who I think is one of the best child actors I have ever seen. I also loved Winona Ryder, she brought so much emotion and panic to the character of Joyce, who was also a stand out for me.
I would definitely recommend this series to any film buff, sci-fi fan, or anyone interested in a good mix of mystery/thrill/comedy/romance, and everything in between!!
Netflix has come up with another magnificant series. A great combination of scifi and horror engages viewers. A series of supernatural things evolve when a kid is gone missing. The script is great, writer has succeded in maintaining suspense till the end. I thought the casting is great and gave smaller actors great opportunities. Best thing about the series is music. Just listen to starting music and you will know what I am talking about. Selection of location is also great. Overall, I’d recommend it as a must watch.
FEELINGS : This series is an outstanding watch for everyone, It has a bit of every genre in it. It is mysterious and will leave you hanging until the last minute and question your every thought. I don’t usually rewatch TV shows but I had to for this series, it is so interesting. I watched this 3 times, it was that good! It’s exhilarating and leaves you on the edge of your seat.
THE STORY : It is about a missing boy named Will and a group of friends, but something suspicious is happening in this small town. As the characters find out more they discover that a weird creature has been taking people somewhere unknown. While this is all happening friendships form when boys around the age of 13 find a magnificent girl that can do wonderful but strange things with her mind.
AGE RECOMMENDATION: 13+ Scary at times / language
Stranger things is hand down my most favourite tv show I’ve ever watched, every episode leaves you on edge and wanting more and more. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for an exciting and exhilarating show to watch. It gets your emotions going and you adrenalin running I loved it from start to finish and I have even watched the series twice. This show has the most insane but incredible story line I love how they always leave you questioning after ever episode. I cannot stress enough how much I love this show and I recommend anyone ready this to watch it
This series is so fascinating and mysterious. I only just watched this series the other week and have already finished the episodes because I love it that much as it was really interesting. The series follows a boy names Will who goes missing. His friends and family then try to search for him but discover a creature that had taken him and other people in the series as well. His friends also discover this girl that has special powers by controlling things with her mins which was pretty cool. I would recommend this series to anyone who is over the at of 12 as at time it can be a bit scary. I also rate the series a 9/10
The stranger things tv series has to be my new ultimate favourite show to watch now days. The series has only come out this year and it has been highly talked about over in America and Australia. Stranger things is a thrilling Netflix-original drama series, it is based in 1983 when Joyce Byers’ 12 year old son, Will, goes missing. She launches a terrifying investigation into his disappearance with local authorities. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl. When I watched the first episode I was filled with so many different emotions and when the episode finished, I couldn’t not watch the next episode… and the rest of the series! I would highly reccomend this series to anyone above the age of 13 as some of the episode can be quite scary. Although there is only one season out there, there is another season coming in 2017 that I am eagerly awaiting for!
I absolutely love this series! I’m a big fan of scy fy movies and shows and this is just amazing. The show follows a boy named Will that goes missing on his way home from a friends house. His friends and family believe that he is still alive even though it is unlikely. The ‘thing’ that took Will starts to take other people as well, but where do they end up? The series starts off fairly slow but trust me, it gets better. The last few episodes are really intense and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. 10/10. I would recommend this to people that are in year 7 or older, as some scenes may scare younger children.
I recommend the TV series, Stranger Things. Based in the era of the 80’s this series focuses on the supernatural world that’s presented itself because of a research facility on it’s outskirts. The plot begins when a young boy goes missing and his mother believes against all odds he’s still alive. His group of friends believe so too and try extremely hard to defy all the odds to bring him back, wherever he may be. This series touches on stereotypes in the particular era, as well as the technology of the time. For me, I did enjoy the series a lot but only found the last two episodes to bring the whole series together, so if starting wait it out to the end because it is definitely worth it! My favourite characters would have to be Eleven, Mike and Dustin. Eleven is a girl who can dot he impossible. Even though she holds little dialogue I love that she is able to express very emotion and want to help these strangers that soon become her friends. Mike is one of the friends of the missing boy and he does everything in his power to believe the inevitable, as well as his protective nature that I find adorable. Dustin is the cutest thing ever he is my favourite character just because I love his character. Overall at some points this series may be a little too much for some so would recommend to those who have an interest in the synopsis, however is a very good series overall.
