Stranger Things is an American science fiction-horror web television series created, written, and directed by the Duffer Brothers. 


This thrilling Netflix original drama stars Golden Globe-winning actress, Winona Ryder, as Joyce Byers, who lives in a small Indiana town in 1980s. -- inspired by a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences. When Joyce's 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, she launches a investigation into his terrifying disappearance with local authorities. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.

Why It Rocks

  1. Well-done character and story-development in each and everyone of the show’s episodes.
  2. Likable, relatable and interesting characters, especially Mike, Lucas, Eleven, Dustin and many more.
  3. Amazing, well-done and terrifying special effects.
  4. Very original writing for a Netflix television series.
  5. Flawless acting and great casting choices from each of the cast members.
  6. It also began and kicked off the careers and debuts of many child actors, like Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Scnhapp etc.
  7. Many of the characters have shown to share great chemistry with each other, especially the child and teenage characters.
  8. Brilliant and amazing soundtrack by Kyle Dixon.
  9. The Upside Down (from season 1) is a very creepy and bone-chilling world.
  10. A splendid amount of funny, scary, suspenseful, heart-warming and serious moments, all very-well paced. The show can also have a few creepy X-Files-type vibes here and there.
  11. A wonderfully creative and original plot for a television series.
  12. Shawn Levy and the Duffer Brothers have shown to have amazing skills as directors and executive producers.
  13. An accurate and well-done setting for the 1980s.
  14. Excellent cinematography.
  15. Mark Steger does a nightmarish and astounding performance as the Demogorgon.
  16. The episodes are well-paced and thought up.
  17. Being set in the 1980s, the show has a couple of nice throwbacks and references that are from the 80s era, like how Mike, Lucas, Will and Dustin dress up like the Ghostbusters.
  18. The song, “Friend’s Don’t Lie”, is well-sung.
  19. The costume designs are an awesome embodiment of what 80s fashion looks like.

Bad Qualities

  1. The bully characters are unlikeable, bland, and mediocre.
  2. In Season 2, while not bad, it did get a mean-spirited scene where Hopper punishes his daughter Eleven and she getting no TV, or Eggos and she screams and breaking the windows in her house as a result.
    • Season 2 was also the weakest season, with some episodes being on filler level. The season was fine overall though.
  3. "The Lost Sister" was a pretty weak episode, not the worst, but it could have been better.
  4. The running gag of Eleven craving Eggo Waffles, while memorable, is also just hidden product placement.

Dude, shut up. This show has nothing in common with Gravity Falls. Because if it did then people wouldn’t have watched this show.

Fucking idiots nowadays...

It's no ripoff, but it does have some similarities. Just ask the fanart and parody videos.
