Stranger Things: Season 1

Stranger Thing is a masterclass in how to pay homage to nostalgia while remaining compelling in one’s own right, borrowing clear influence from a dozen classic sci-fi and suspense movies without feeling derivative or cliche.  While the entire cast is superb,  I give a massive amount of credit to the child actors, who deliver believable, grounded, emotion performances for all eight of the season’s white-knuckle episodes.


Season Premiere Date: July 15th, 2016

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 94%

Network: Netflix
