    i love this series so much as in it my favourite character Eleven(millie bobby brown) is a young girl being tested in supernatural events and the villian doctor Brenner who is out to find her after she escapes as he knows she has supernatural powers that allow her to control things with her mind, this is such a great series and i cant wait for the next season to come out as it is so suspenseful and i also love the fact that it is meant to be like it was made and happened in the 90’s so they ride there mountain bikes around town and use walkie talkies and stuff like that which i love. I would give this series a 100/10 as it is so funny,suspenseful and cool at the same time and there are clues in the different episodes about elevens past life and how she was treated, i can’t wait for the next season to come out as well as this is my al time favourite series.

  2. Stranger Things is one of the rare TV shows I actually have managed to finish, which just shows how much I enjoyed it. It is based in the 1980s in America and revolves around the alternate universes between the supernatural and the world we see every day. It is set up when a boy named Will Byers goes missing, and his mother is understandably frantic to find him, as well as his group of friends who all try and search for him the best they can. It is when Eleven, a young girl with psychokinetic powers, is found by the boys that the town uncovers secret experiments and supernatural forces at play. My favourite part of the series is Eleven’s obsession with Eggos, because even though she does not speak much or show much of her personality initially she still connects with the one thing that brings her comfort. She is also my favourite character, because you can learn so much about her despite the fact that she barely speaks purely because of her actions and body language, which I think is a really clever choice by the producers of the show. Although I cannot particularly relate to any of the characters, I can really feel the struggle of Joyce as she tries to find her son and uncover the truth of what happened to him, as well as her pain at the lack of answers she finds. I would definitely recommend this show to others, particularly to those who enjoy mysteries, fantasy or thrillers. I also recommend watching until the very end, because while I did not find the middle as compelling as the beginning, the end wraps up the show very well and is well worth the watch.

  3. Stranger things is my all-time favourite TV show. Stranger things is packed with action, adventure, romance, sci-fi, fantasy and has some funny moments. I first watched stranger things last year during the holidays and watched all four seasons within a week. I couldn’t stop watching. I told my Grandma about how good this show was and she loved it just as much. I also love all the actors and actresses who play the characters effortlessly. My favourite character is Eleven who is played by Milly Bobby Brown. She is my favourite because she is a selfless individual who is also a boss girl. I love the romance between Eleven and Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and wish they were together in real life. My favourite season was number three because it was an adrenaline triggering season. I can’t wait for the next season to come out!

    Stranger things is a show for everyone. It brings you on a terrifying Journey of monsters, villains and evil fathers. It’s about four teenage kids ( that become 5 ) Together they try to solve the mystery of their missing friend Will. Soon they meet a girl their age named Elle. As they search for him another friend is lost and the mysteries start piling up. I think that this series has a lot of ups and downs and even the upside down. Each season has a new problem new characters and a new solution. While watching this I would always find myself attached to the TV. I would rate this a 9/10!

  6. Stranger things is an absolute fantastic show! It is so full of action and adventure but it also has a funny side. When Will gets lost in the woods, almost the whole town sets out to find him. But the reality is that he gets sucked into an alternate universe. All Wills family and friends still believe he is alive and try to find him. I really liked Dustin. He was so cute and funny. I also liked Eleven. It was pretty cool how she could do the whole mind-moving thing. I found this really interesting and I loved most of the characters. I create this a 9.9 out of 10 although I recommend it to 13 onwards because there are some scary scenes. Brilliant!

    Stranger Things the tv show is soooo Incredible. The interesting mysteries and always keep me on the edge of my seat. I just want to know what happens (I wish I could watch all of the 3 seasons in 30 seconds). El or 11 is my favourite character of all time, she is so inspirational and i wish i could be just like her, I can’t keep track of how many times I have seen all 3 seasons, its just so amazing I love season 3 a lot more than the other 2, but I still love them. 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

    Overall I found stranger things a very interesting and exciting series. As the characters in the series grow older you can really see the series progress and how each episode becomes more and more interesting. When I first started to watch it I didn’t realise that until you watch for a while you really get hooked in the want to keep on watching. I like how this storyline is set back in the 80’s. It reminds me of the goonies, the clothes they wear, and how they ride their bikes like everywhere! Even without a helmet! I have so many questions about this series that I wish could be answered but can’t because the answers would give away things we are not meant to find out yet. I would rate this tv series a 9\10. I love it and I hope after reading you will give it a go too!

    The Netflix original series Stranger Things is a captivating, supernatural and funny show.
    Although at times it can be scary and put you on the edge of your seat, but don’t let that put you off because it is still an amazing show. It is all based on a group of sci-fi obsessed, nerdy teens (Will, Mike, Lucas and Dustin) who live in an old town called Hawkins. From the outside it looks like a normal town and it looks like a normal town to a lot of it’s residents too; but Will and his friends know something is up. They uncover huge secrets that the government is hiding, fight off super natural creatures and go into different dimensions. These boys end up meeting so many more people along their journey and develop a lot too. I recommend this for people 12 and up but if you’re really in to scary type shows you could probably watch it a bit younger how ever it is rated M. Over all an AMAZING show. My favourite part is when Dustin yells “SHE’S OUR FRIEND AND SHE’S CRAZY!!!” Also there is a fourth season coming.

    I could not stop watching this show, each time an episode ended it left me with questions and I was so eager to watch the next episode. Based in Hawkins, Indiana the show starts out with four boys playing D and D (Dungeons and Dragons) Will Buyers, Mike Wheeler, Dustin Henderson, and Lucas Sinclair. They meet a girl Eleven, or El as Mike calls her. Little do the boys know that Eleven has powers or Telekinesis. She has a love for eggos and soon forms a strong relationship with Will, Mike, Dustin, and Lucas. After Will goes missing everyone is in grief but little do they know he is still alive after seeing a body that they thought was him they meet more characters that become more familiar throughout the series. Eventually, they risk going on a journey. They find themselves stuck with terrifying creatures that could kill anyone who has their own blood visible on them. whilst there are terrifying challenges there are also relationships that spark, And there are definitely Romantic parts and episodes for those girls that enjoy watching Romantic things. throughout the series, you feel a lot of mixed emotions. You cry and laugh. Smile and get mad. It was an absolute joy to be able to watch a show like this and I wish Netflix made more shows that are similar to this.

  13. WOW this is an amazing series. I really really enjoyed watching this TV show as it is so well thought out and I love all the different characters. This show is perfect for teenagers to watch because the characters are also teenagers which makes it very relatable and easy to understand. I love how each character is so unique and have their own special traits about themselves. I also love each and every season which sometimes is not the case with series I have watched in the past. The show somehow never manages to bore me or hit me with predictable scenes which is great. I really enjoyed watching the episodes because it always left me wanting to watch more and more. Stranger things is set in the past and shows the crazy world of the supernatural. I think that this show will not be for everyone but if you are into watching action and thriller films then I would recommend giving the stranger things series a watch. 10/10!!! 😁

  15. I absolutely love stranger things because of its perfect balance of thrill and shock of Hawkins and the romance and funny side of it all. Stranger Things is sure to get you on the edge of your seat and to fall in love with the lovable characters. It all starts with Eleven or “El” who was a victim of human testing and from a result of it has telekinesis, she escapes from her testing labs and finds herself with a bunch of” DnD” boy Mike, Dustin and Lucas. My favourite characters would definitely have to be Will as he is so lovable and really cute and also Eleven as she is the epitome of women empowerment and display just how strong and independent she is. I would definitely recommend this to anyone over to the age of 12 (as it can be scary and have mature themes) as a show to watch because it will get you hooked from the very beginning. I would overall rate this show as a 10/10.

    This is definitely one of my favourite tv shows ever by far !! Im a sucker for watching the whole season within a few days of when it was realised, 1, 2 and now season 3….
    My favourite characters would have to be dustin, eleven, mike and billy. I love the sci-fi aspect of stranger things because it makes the watch so much more enjoyable. The only thing I don’t like about the series is it takes 1-2 years for a new season to be realised which leaves fans like me to get angry after having to wait so long. I’m not the biggest fan of the ending for season 3 because its not the best cliff hanger because most people know whats going to happen in season 4…. Hop is not dead….
    overall I rate stranger things a 10/10 and would say children under the age of 10 shouldn’t be watching it. 🙂

  17. This TV show is great for all people that love SCI-FI and coming of age stories. It features a group of friends that come together and fight what you would only read about at that time. It is great to watch with your friends, family or even by yourself. My favourite character is Eleven because, over all the seasons, you see her grow and adapt to the world that she was hidden from. She shows courage and resilience which I admire. For a show that is set in the 80s, it is really relatable for the teenagers this day and age because they face normal teenage issues, aside from the fighting aliens part. Not only this, but the show is quite humorous and can get a laugh out of anyone. Overall, I give this tv show a 9/10 because it enables you to connect to each and every character making every loss and every win something that you feel with them.

  18. Stranger things has been very popular recently, and has a really good storyline. The show is so intriguing and you literally cannot stop watching it once you start. It is a series of supernatural things that involve when a kid is gone missing. It is a show where you come to love every character because they are all important and have great personalities. There are always plot twists, jump scares and there is lots of humour. I would highly recommend this series to anyone over the age of 12 because some scenes in the series can be quite scary.

    Hands down Stranger things is my absolute favorite TV series ever. It has everything, comedy, romance, horror it’s the full package. I love how they have set it in the ’80s as I love the 80’s and the costumes and hairstyles give the 80’s more style than the other popular stereotypes. My two favorite characters are Will Byers and Eleven as they are both so unique and kind and I can relate to them both in a way. My favorite episode in the series would be the mall rats when they all go shopping at the mall as they act like such teenagers and it’s good to see them get a normal teenage life and I find it really funny when El dumps Mike and the first thing will say’s is “Now can we play DnD” I have laughed and cried throughout the series and once I start an episode it turns into 5 more. I would give this series 5 stars and would recommend it to teenagers and adults as it can get scary at times but it is very relatable in a way and can take adults back to the 1980s with some jokes in there too. This film is amazing and I would definitely recommend it.

  22. I love Stranger Things and it just got even better with the release of the third season. Stranger things is really different from anything else on tv and its distinct taste is what makes it so popular and entertaining. The show has a great old school feel, being set in the 80’s. This includes music, costumes and the way they communicate. The show is filled with action, drama, a bit of romance and horror. The series always has you on the edge of the seat and a great mystery in each season that they need to solve before they are out of time. I would highly recommend this show to anyone 13+.

    Stranger things is my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE TV SERIES EVER! It is set in the 70s and is about the thrilling adventure that a group of friends embark on in order to save their friend that is hiding from a monster that nobody knows a thing about. Not only has this series opened my eyes to the wonderful and terrifying world of jump scares but also to thriller and mystery related books. I am so excited for season 3!

    Stranger Things follows the adventures of a group of four young boys who are obsessed with playing dungeons and dragons who adopt a confused and mysterious little girl into their group when one of their own members goes missing. This show monitors the thrilling, bizarre journey of three boys and this girl they call 11 in finding their missing friend. The characters all show their own personalities and are all contrasting and you find that together, the group are quite hilarious yet intelligent in different aspects. I recommend this show to anyone interested in sci-fi and mystery along with comedy and even a tiny bit of romance from ages 12 and up.

  25. Stranger things is a sci-fi film that shows us how children can help change the world and is empowering, whilst being enjoyable to watch. This is due to the plot line that centers​ around the children. In this popular tv series, a young girl is found by a group of boys. This girl has superpowers and can move things and see stuff with her mind. This girl and a group of boys must fight a monster that is threatening the safety of their town, that came from the same place as the girl. By giving these young kids a role in caring for everyone it shows leadership and the strength in those who aren’t adults yet. This is why I like this empowering and enjoyable tv show.

    Stranger Things has to be one of the most different shows i’ve ever seen. It’s a sci-fi, 80’s flashback, horror and a comedy. The show is filled with so many thrilling scenes and jump scares. Although I love everything about this Netflix original, the actors really stand out. Featuring Winona Ryder, David Harbour and Sean Astin. The creators of the show Matt and Ross Duffer (The Duffer Brothers) have chosen very talented kids, who now are know to be some of the best actors and actresses under 18. The storyline is set in the year 1983, a boy named Will who goes missing in a alternate dimension called ‘The Upside Down’. His mother Joyce goes on a investigation to find him, she believes somehow he is alive. Will’s best friends, continue to have a investigation of there own to find him as well. Along the way they find a girl named Eleven in the woods drenched by the rain. In this season the town of Hawkins, Indiana, faces some terrifying creatures some human, some not. I’m incredibly excited to see Stranger Things 3 (releasing July 4th). I highly recommend not skipping scenes or episodes, because nearly everything is vital.

    Stranger Things has won over 50 awards and been nominated over 150 times.

  27. Stranger Things is an amazing TV series! It is my favourite show and I love it so much. There is a little bit of everything for everyone in this show. There is Sci-Fi, Horror, Comedy, Thriller, Mystery, and Romance. The characters are all loveable and I became attached very quickly. The show is about the disappearance of a child in a small town and the hunt to find him. Along the way, a group of the boy’s friends realises that there is more going on than just a missing person case. I have finished both seasons and can’t wait for season three. Mike is my favourite character 🙂

Each character in the series is truely amazing! I love the story as I have never watched a series like it. It is very different to other shows and has so many plot twists. I love how every episode ends wuth 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 wish I was born in. the fashion is so groovy and there is no technology like nowadays which looks 10000 times better. There were so many awesome special effects which make it look incredible. I loved how original and creative it is and would rate it 100000000/10. I would recommend to anyone aged 13 and older because it can be a bit scary

  30. stranger things is my all time favourite show. it started off with all my friends talking about it last year and them asking me to watch it, but i always said ”no thanks” because i honestly thought it was going to be another basic show about someone who goes missing. but let me tell you that i was wrong. VERY wrong. stranger things is the best thing ive ever watched, its so breath taking and intriguing. after one episode i was roped in and i knew i had to finish it quick or else all the questions and queries would take over my mind. i ended up finishing both seasons in 4 days. my favourite characters would have to be eleven and mike. eleven is so brave and courageous, she has telepathy powers! even though she doesnt speak much dialogue in the seasons, you can tell from the way she acts, that she is such a strong and kind girl. mike is so funny and loyal, he will do anything for anyone in trouble. when he meets eleven you can definetly tell something is going on between them. i would definetly recommend this show to anyone who is ready to become addicted to a great show. i would say this show is suitable for ages 10+ because is does have a few jump scares during it.

  31. All my friends were talking about this show called stranger things at school last year. They all begged me to watch it but i would say ”no thanks” because it sounded like a boring show. But let me tell you, i was wrong! Stranger things is my all time favourite tv show because it has such an amazing storyline that gets you intrigued. After watching one episode, i had been roped in, i knew i had to finish the seasons soon, or else i would be left with many queries and questions. I would 100% recommend this show to anyone who enjoys a supernatural themed show with a hint of romance. My all time favourite character would have to be either mike or eleven. Eleven is an extremely brave girl that has telepathy powers. Even though she doesn’t really say a lot through out the show, her actions show her great courage and selflessness. Mike is an extremely funny young boy that is so kind and caring. when he meets eleven for the first time, you can definantly tell something is going on beween them. mike is so sweet and will do anything for his friends! this show will always be in the back of my head, with all my questions and theories about season 3! Overall, this show is my personal favourite so i would definetly recommend it!

  32. When Stranger Things first came out, I thought it was semi-boring. Then I started yr 7 and everybody was talking about it. Saying ‘it was so good’ and ‘an amazing show.’ I thought, what’s the point? It’s just about a girl with powers making friends with a couple of boys and demogorgons.
    I started watching it again and I couldn’t stop watching. I am desperate for season 3 to come out now.
    Basically, the main character, Eleven (played by Millie Bobby Brown) was a science experiment because of her strange powers. She was abused everyday by the man she once called ‘father.’ A young boy named Will goes missing one night into the ‘Upside Down.’ Only Eleven is the only person who knows about this place… for now. She meets Will’s friends, Mike, Dustin and Lucas. The 3 boys stop at nothing to find Will’s whereabouts. Eventually, Will is found but nearly dead. His mother is relieved!
    This is what Netflix was made for! My favourite character had to be Nancy. Nancy was Mike’s older sister. Her friend Barb was taken into the Upside Down and unfortunately, was killed there. This was very upsetting because Barb was a good person and only wanted what was best for Nancy. My least favourite character was Steve. He was an annoying, stupid drunk teen. Although, he did make himself useful in season 2. He became funnier, sober and helpful.
    I would highly recommend this series for 13+. There are a bit of scary scenes and mild language. Overall, it is an amazing show!

    Filled with mystery, action and horror, this is the perfect series! I have only watched the first few episodes but am already captivated by the suspense. There are so many different stories happening at once, it is extremely addictive. After Mike is captured by a mysterious creature, his friends team up to attempt to find him, despite the rest of the world telling them not to. Then a girl named Eleven appears, who has some sort of mysterious power but cannot talk. So far, I would recommend this series to anyone over 12, as there are plenty of jump scares and terrifying moments. I can’t wait to continue watching it!

  34. I would rate this season a 9/10 because I thought the acting was on point, the scene was really cool and the story itself was really interesting. My reasoning for the one-star deduction was because I often found myself confused and puzzled due to the business of the storyline.
    My favorite characters would have to have been Mike and Eleven. I thought Milly Bobby Brown did a fantastic job at taking on the character of Eleven. Her acting was incredible and there were so many different personality traits involved in her character.
    As for Mike, I loved how bubbly and funny he was throughout the hardest of times he endured. He stayed strong through losing his best friend, and he never gave up.

  36. 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.

    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.

  40. 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. 😉

  42. 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 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.

  48. 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.

    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.

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.

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.

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

    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!!

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!

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.

  78. 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.
