Aussie boy's thoughts

Stranger Things is a favourable example of phenomenal sci-fi storytelling. The Duffer brothers book an excellent selection of amazing children and adult casting, and execute one hell of a sci-fi tale, packed with outstanding visual effects, compelling ideas and that ominously mysterious theme music. As the result, this is an intriguing and entertaining series that teenagers will adore, science fictions fans will praise, and it’s hard to describe a single flaw that’ll leave anyone in disappointment.
