OK Neflix, you have finally got me. “Stranger Things” is a great show! You disappointed me with Daredevil, underwhelmed me with Jessica Jones, and couldn’t interest me in House of Cards or Orange is the New Black. But with “Stranger Things” you have tapped into everything I loved about Stephen King, Steven Spielberg, and what the hell Steve Guttenberg, movies (I had to add another Steve).
For the uninformed, The series centers around three friends in the 1980’s – Dustin (Gaten Mattarazzo), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), and Lucas (Caleb McClaughlin) who go on a Goonies search for their lost friend all the while trying to keep ahead of the bad government agents (ET anyone) and the evil monster their work has released. I won’t give up too much else for those who haven’t seen it but I wanted to draw my cartoon homage to the show. Here is a trailer for the series.
Anyone else seen it? Thoughts?
