All seems right in the world for friends Mike, Will, Dustin, and Lucas. Their biggest concerns involve avoiding local bullies, Dungeons and Dragons, and participating in their school audio visual club. But things quickly take a turn for the worst when Will goes missing. And it seems that the only way to save him might be through a mysterious new girl who barely speaks. This is the problem presented in the Duffer brothers new show Stranger Things.
The Duffer brothers absolutely nailed the secondary characters in the series. Viewers will enjoy watching the change and growth of the flawed Steve Harrington, caring Nancy Wheeler, and shy Jonathan Byers, played by Joe Keery, Natalia Dyer, and Charlie Heaton respectively. The story simply cannot exist without them.
Another feature of this series is the relatable main characters. Viewers will have no problem relating to the quiet Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), humorous Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), meek Will (Noah Schnapp), and determined Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin). Viewers will especially love their ‘leader’ of sorts Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard). Younger viewers will especially enjoy these characters.
The special effects presented in this show both visually and audibly, are absolutely amazing, and the monsters presented in the series are quite realistic. It’s like you’re really there, in the upside down. And the growl of the demogorgon still sends shivers down my spine!
This show also has the length to keep people interested. Made up of three seasons of about eight one hour long episodes, viewers will be hooked early and will most certainly stick around until the end of the series. And with a fourth season well on the way, the fan base is through the roof.
Audiences of all ages will fall in love with this series. Younger fans will enjoy the relatable characters. Teens will love the fear and the drama that this program brings to the table. Older viewers will be attracted by the nostalgia of the series. In short, Stranger Things is great for anyone who can handle the fear.
Viewers, readers, I urge you to watch this series. I assure you that you will fall in love with the dark plot, fun characters, and great special effects. Just be careful, once started it may be impossible to stop.
