| Netflix Nails it again.
It can hook you immediately, everything seems fitting , the setting , the acting , the direction. Just as it should be. Bringing out the perfect blend of 1980s nostalgia. It gives mixture of taste of big 80's movies.

You immediately get hooked with the story , which is amazing because it takes time for me to get invested in a story.

I have been a fan of David Harbour Since the Newsroom , and he is just amazing.

You're scared , Intrigued , you're completely invested. With perfect setting.

I am really looking forward to where this goes from here on in.

Trivia

There are many possible homages to the Silent Hill (1999) series of games on the show, particularly the game Silent Hill: Homecoming (2008). In addition to the similarities of the dark "Otherworld" of Silent Hill and the "Upside-Down" (both mirroring the real world, but decrepit and filled with a haze and falling flakes like ash), there are also living portals in inanimate walls, one of which an agent "Shepherd" tears into so he may pass through, just as the character Alex Shepherd does in Homecoming. Mike's (Finn Wolfhard) family share the same last name with Deputy Wheeler from the same game. Elle (El) (Millie Bobby Brown) is a prominent character in Silent Hill: Homecoming. An "Eleanor Gillespie" is mentioned in Stranger Things; the Gillespies are a crucially important family in the Silent Hill mythos (and Alessa Gillespie is a telekinetic little girl who spends most of her life in a hospital). The actor Finn Wolfhard (Finn Wolfhard) bears an uncanny resemblance to Alex Shepherd's little brother, Joshua.


Quotes

Eleven: Promise.


Goofs

Eleven is unfamiliar with the word "friend" until Mike tells her what it means. When she is being led to the Sensory Deprivation Chamber by Dr Brenner, he tells her that all the scientists are "friends"


Crazy Credits

The Stranger Things opening titles and fonts mimic the film grain and look of 1980's television series opening credits.
