The charm of this series are the kids obviously. But the adults involved are no slouches either. I look forward to the second season but I heard it's more gory which isn't really my cup of tea...

This type of Series is not usually my cup of tea!! However, I found myself enjoying this horror series. I loved that it took place in the 1980's and seemed real! Looking forward to Series 2!

Stranger Things is a Netflix original show. The story takes place in Hawkins Indiana, in 1983. Four boys named Mike, Will, Lucas, and Dustin are in the middle of playing Dungeons and Dragons. When its time to leave Will and Dustin race home on their bikes. However, Will turns into the forest after hearing odd noises. The next morning, his mom realizes that he never came home, and his friends did not know why he was not at school. The boys go searching for him, and in the exact spot where he vanished they find a girl named Eleven. If you enjoy Eighties movies, science-fiction, horror, or mystery and adventure. I would watch Stranger Things. The show is nothing but a masterpiece, fitting in so well with the sci-fi movies of the eighties. The show has something in it for everyone and I have not heard one bad comment about it. I will say that this show can get very scary at some points and I would not recommend it for children under the age of twelve. Overall, I would definitely rate this show five out of five stars. @Sapphirereads of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

After all the hype, I was not as blown away as I expected to be, but I did enjoy the nostalgia of the early-80s setting. Very reminiscent of 80s horror films, so if you have a special place in your heart for those you will probably like this series. I liked the group of kids and how they could use their hobbies to make sense of everything going on, but I couldn't stand any of the surviving teenagers--probably would have liked it better if I could find that third of the cast more sympathetic!

Stranger Things is awesome. Season one is captivating. Season two is pretty good. There is a German Sci-fi series "Dark" that is also similar to Stranger Things and it's pretty good too. Season three is coming out and I am curious how would they keep it as interesting as the first season. Give this series 5 stars.

Completely worthy of all the hype.

I binge-watched this and later the 2nd season on Netflix. You may recognize aspects of E.T. and The Goonies, as well as the recent film It. The horror parts in the first season are truly creepy and I think the 2nd season has a hard time living up to that.

This series was extremely intense. I was eager to watch this series, and it has shown an outstanding performance from the actors and the production crew. I can't wait to see season 2.
