Netflix’s Stranger Things is the latest in a growing list of phenomenal successes for the streaming service. The show’s mixture of horror, mystery and nostalgia seems to be striking just the right chord with worldwide audiences.
The series is a really entertaining chunk of modern television. There’s a lot to admire with this production, especially the look-and-feel, and it’s super easy to get caught up in the ride. But there’s something that bugs me when watching Stranger Things, something that niggles constantly like the faint mutterings of a missing boy (yup). Something that, sadly, means my enjoyment is left incomplete.
