    The way this series got me feeling is unbelievable. This was the first foreign show I ever watched, I still remember that feeling… just wow. Perfect cast, perfect atmosphere, how it was so thrilling and how it consumed me. Story was 10/10. Whoever came up with this deserves the biggest applause. I feel like no one is able to hate this show, you just can't.

    Stranger Things is a high-quality and entertaining show that deftly mixes horror, suspense and '80s nostalgia, without overdoing any of these elements.

    5/5 stars. A Sci-fi/Drama Masterpiece.
  • Jan 17, 2023
    First season was really engaging and intriguing. It clicked on all cylinders - as mystery and as metaphor, as narrative and as concept. In fact, if you like season 1 as much as I did, I would suggest skipping the sequel seasons - there probably was nowhere to go but down.
