Stranger Things

Why I love this show!

I LOVED watching Stranger Things first season on Netflix!  Did you see it?  If not, you're going to want to check it out.  If you're a fan of the spooky, the retro, the paranormal...if you dig the stranger side of life, you're going to enjoy this show, trust me!  After I told my sister about it, she watched the entire first season in a single viewing session! 

I can't wait for the second season to start later this month!  Until then, I have to settle on t-shirts for fans of the show, lol.  Fortunately, there is a pretty cool selection available.  Here's a sampling of some of my favorites I wanted to share with you...

What's the series about?

If you're not familiar with the show, it's a Netflix original.  I don't think you can view it outside of being a Netflix subscriber.  I believe the phenomenal success of this show alone, plus the fact that it's 2nd season is going to begin soon (on Halloween), is a large part of why Netlfix feels confident about raising their prices this month, but I digress.

The show is set in the early 80's and so it has that cool Retro vibe to it.  Whether you lived during the 80s or just love the 80s, you're sure to like this aspect of the show.  It's said that the show strives to be reminiscent of a cross between Stephen King and Steven Spielberg.  I'd say it certainly succeeds in that, too.

The show is sort of hard to pin down to a single genre.  There are definitely elements of the supernatural/paranormal, even horror.  It also has a lot of mystery, suspense, action, and sci-fi in it.  My recommendation?  Check it out for yourself and see if it's up your alley.  I'm betting it will be since you and I obviously are kindred spirits when it comes to such things since you're on my site reading this.  ;)

The Stranger Things Song

After you've watched a couple episodes, I think you'll know why so many people get the song stuck in their heads!  Man is that tune ever catchy!

From that opening tune, I was hooked.  Each episode kept me on the edge of my seat anticipating what would happen to the characters next.  Kudos to the show's writers!
