Wow! Fabulous, binge watched this and loved every single second. So many '80s pop culture references, E.T, Firestarter, Stand by Me. If you, like me, grew up in the 80s, this is a must see! Next season, please, Netflix! :)

With its amazing 80s atmosphere and creepy X-files meets E.T feel this show is set to impress. Within its first minutes of run time I could tell I had found something special here in Stranger Things. Its intriguing story gives information at a great pace and I never felt myself getting confused or bored. The characters of the show are the true stars here, the casting is perfect. I'm hooked!

5 episodes in, loving every minute :) time is disappearing.
Theorising all the way and changing theories as the show changes.
And the nice way it plays with D&D / RPG themes.

But it's almost 1am and will have to leave the next 3 episodes for tomorrow.
As long as they don't find a way to ruin the ending it'll be keeping the 5 stars.

Note; I can be quite easy to please with tv shows,
If I enjoy something it will easily get 3-4 stars out of me,
Only a few of the ones I give 5's to I'll go out of the way to recommend in a review.

Do it, marathon this on netflix - now.

I knew this was going to be good from the moment I finished watching the trailer. I'm now two episodes in and it's like I'm back in the 80s and I love it. Please don't let this have a dumb ending and please let it get renewed for a second season.

Winona Ryder starring in a fun supernatural drama described as "a love letter to the '80s classics that captivated a generation"? Yes, please. The nostalgia factor is huge here. Taking place in 1983, we've got overt nods to E.T, Firestarter — even The Goonies. And it all works. Especially Ryder as Will's frantic single mom. Wino forever!

A great show made in the '80's. No wait, a great show with a sense of knowing what it is but also with so many themes: paranormal, science fiction, drama, adventurous and comedy wove into one with a nostalgic, classic feel. Great, creepy music and classic songs from the era move along with great performances by the actors. 2 stars from the '80's shine as Matthew Modine is good as a creepy doctor and Winona Ryder as a grieving mother. If you loved '80's movies, you'll love Stranger Things.

Stranger things is a science fiction period drama concentrating on mysterious life-form and abductions surrounding a community. The cast is littered with Easter egg actors that make this show bigger and better. The storyline flows very well and the characters are well depicted; coming from the well set 80's atmosphere and era. This show is recommended to the science fiction guru.

I absolutely loved this series. I can't give it enough praises and I really hope they do a season two. If you enjoy the genres of suspense, thrillers, and paranormal with a little drama and romance then don't miss this show. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Two episodes in and I'm liking this. The story sucked me in from the beginning and it isn't dragging or getting boring. The story keeps going which I love. So much mysterious and climatic scenes, the show has you on the edge of your seat trying to guess what will happen next!!!! I'm sure this will be a hit for the summer. Plus it's set in the 80's and actually done right in the case of setting and props.
