Netflix Gets Strange


Review of Netflix fan favorite Stranger Things
By Madison Moseley

he television show of the summer,


featuring the it kids of today, Netflix
has hit the nail on the head with Stranger
Things.
For the past three years, Netflix has
produced its own exclusive originals
with multiple success stories- House of
Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,
Master of None and Narcos to name a
few, but Stranger Things is different. After being passed up by at least 15 networks
due to concerns that children as lead actors
wouldnt appeal to adult audiences, the
show found a home with Netflix.
Stranger Things is centered around
a small, mundane town in Indiana that
becomes shrouded in mystery after Will,
a 12-year-old boy, disappears on his way

home one night. The story follows Wills


mom, brother, friends (along with a telekinetic girl) and the town sheriff as they
attempt to track Will down. However, this
missing persons case takes a turn when a
suspect government agency starts getting
involved. The plot is coupled with brilliant
casting, writing and cinematography.
Even though acting, writing and cinematography are key factors in any television
show and play a factor in making this
particular show so iconic, what really sets
Stranger Things apart is that the Duffer
brothers took the show back to television
roots by placing the setting in the 80s. The
1980s was an industry-changing decade
that was the beginning of the popular media boom in which inspiration is constant

ly being drawn from even today. Setting


the show in the 80s gives off a sense of
nostalgia and comfort that the viewer cant
help but pick up on, especially as some
of the adult audience the show is catered
towards grew up in the 80s. For those who
were born way after the 80s, this show is
still a good watch, thanks to the suspense
and intrigue.
It has been released that the show will
return for a second season in 2017 with
four additional characters, but whether
the beloved Eleven will return and just
how effected Will is by the upside down
remains a mystery.
