REVIEW: STRANGER THINGS

By: Saatvik Kumar

Stranger Things is considered to be one of the best shows on Netflix. It has 2 seasons that are each incredible in their own ways. Stranger Things is loved by many fans. It has plot twists at every corner and intrigues bingers with it’s engaging plot. Warning the following article contains SPOILERS!

First of all, I want to address the massive creature we see in Stranger Things 2. This colossal being possessed Will during the majority of Stranger Things 2 (thanks Bob) and also is seen watching over Hawkins from the “Upside-Down” in the closing scene of the final episode. I think that this creature could be the main antagonist of Stranger Things in the future and will prove to be a very dangerous threat for the gang.

Now, it’s time for everyone’s favorite deceased person, Bob! Bob was a nice man who was dating Will’s mom. He influenced Will to try to face his fears by confronting the monster he sees in the Upside-Down. Bob was sadly eaten by a demo-dog whilst trying to escape the Hawkins science laboratory. His sacrifice allowed the power to be turned back on in the facility which was key for closing the portal to the Upside-Down. Bob was a true hero.

Now for the final note, Eleven’s siblings. Eleven played possibly the most important role in the show. With her telekinesis, she easily countered anything that started with demo (demo-dog demogorgon you name it.) But now that we know she has siblings, the sky’s the limit. All of her siblings have special powers just like Eleven. We saw Eight who could make people hallucinate and there’s probably plenty more to come. In my opinion, this is probably the best thing to anticipate in the future.

As for future seasons of the show, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that there will be a season 3 and season 4 of Stranger Things, possibly even a fifth season. The bad news is that season 3 will be in 2019. So unfortunately, fans are going to have to wait a whole year until they get what they want.

Overall, Stranger Things is an amazing show. If you want to watch it you can find both seasons on Netflix. All in all I’d rate this a 5 stars      

out of 5.
