“Stranger Things” is a well- known, world wide television show enjoyed by many, and produced by the Duffer Brothers. The setting of the show is set in a small town where things take a strange turn of events. This supernatural and science fiction show takes place in the 80’s, and is starring the amazing actor Winona Ryder, who won a Golden Globe Award, along with eight other movie awards. Her role in the show was well played because I enjoyed her dramatic and powerful acting in the scenes. She plays a worried and anxiety stricken mother, who people thought was crazy and didn’t quite know what she was talking about. David harbour and Millie Bobby Brown, along with other teenage actors, also became more well known after the show was released. Millie was one of the main and important characters in the show as well. She won nine awards just after the show was released, including an MTV movie and tv awards for best actor in a show. Her intense and dramatic acting was well played, that many people loved. All of these actors, and more in the show played an important part for nerve wracking scenes that include a lot of action. A young boy, a group of teenagers, a girl with a shaved head that might somehow have powers, a school dance and a dark entity keep the viewers watching. 

 

Everytime a new season appears, it’s like opening up a package of your favorite type of candy and devouring it. In season 2, more action and events keep happening with new rebellious characters. There’s nine new episodes in this season and new adventures. You’ll discover some characters might be related and people have connections you wouldn’t guess have existed. The gang is back with a terrible monster like vision. There’s new holidays like Halloween and surprising places that characters travel to. Also, the second seasons new arcade record breaker is the new hit in town. You wouldn’t believe the terrifying and dangerous events are happening in Hawkins like investigations. New and important things are happening to characters that will either blow your mind or warm your heart with joy. 

Finally, but probably not last, season 3 is back in action and even way better than the rest. There’s new characters, new attitude, and shocking and surprising events. The acting and song from a classic movie are in the show, which I was surprised to see. I was also surprised with some new events, such as the new mall in town, someone’s secret lover, shocking breakups between the teens and new friendships along the way.
