With the paucity of good movies as well as most of the good Cable or Netflix shows my wife and I started hearing a lot of poeple talking about this series. This plus the fact that it has won the emmy the past 2 years for best dramatic series.

Suffice it to say my wife and I loved this series and watched both seasons in a week. Don't laugh as the series is addicting

The kids who star in this series are absolutely superb

If you are into sci-fi especially involving a parallel universe along with a young kid with super powers, then put away all of your disbeliefs and get lost in this series

Definitely you'll have fun watching as these kids are special young actors


The series has collected 18 emmy nominations and has been renewed for a 3rd season


Stranger Things is Netflix number one franchise

We loved it and hope you do as well

My mistake was watching Beyond Stranger Things. I love the series but seeing the kids be themselves was a bit much for me as I fear they may lose touch with reality as they grow older. I know that sounds silly, but things like that bother me being an educator.

I see your point DSkip but this series was so different and so much fun. These kids are naturals.

Who the heck are the Duffer Brothers anyway?

What a hit they have

The first season is nice. Not great imo but nice.

Now just started with Godless. Let's see how that develops.

Also have to do generation kill

Gaten Matarazzo (born September 8th, 2002) is an American actor best known for his portrayal of main character Dustin Henderson in the Netflix original sci-fi series Stranger Things.

He's the kid who plays Dustin--Gaten Matarazzo

In 2011, Matarazzo was cast an alternate for the Broadway production of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert: The Musical.

Matarazzo has only acted in theater and television, without taking any film roles since his career début in the year of 2011. Dustin Henderson from Stranger Things does not have any front teeth, as does Matarazzo. He has a condition that delays his development and growth called cleidocranial dysplasia. He frequently shows off his fake teeth whilst on the red carpet, including his time on the premiere of Stranger Things.

I think season 1 is phenomenal. It's so good I haven't been able to bring myself to watch season 2. IMO it's in my top 5 TV style shows ever, maybe top 3, 2, or 1....

The first season was MUCH better than the second IMO, but the second isn't bad. The feel is the same but the writing just wasn't as good for me.

Right now my children are enjoying the wonders of the Andy Griffith Show during the day.

I totally agree. Season one for me was the element of suspense and wonder. Season 2 is all of the above but now the graphics of these monsters doesn't leave anything to the imagination. Having said that the series is a diamond in the rough. With the season 2 ending cliffhanger there is no doubt that there is more to come of the upside down

Just started this one based on the good reviews here and the whole family is hooked. My wife and kids shun horror shows but I told them this is not the Conjuring or Annabelle type horror so they tried to watch the first episode and wanted more episodes each night. I said cut-off time to head to bed is 11.30 pm. :D

Just finished the last episode of season 2 and everyone loved the two seasons. Remarkable recreation of the 80s, cars, computers, walkie talkie, curly hairdo, what a great effort, complete with music of those times. Can't wait for the next season.
