This week I was able to binge watch a full series and that would be the trending talk of TV series, Stranger Things. The series revolves around a mystery place on the town when a young boy suddenly vanishes. The TV series is intense, family oriented, suspenseful and entertaining story that keeps people guessing what ever happen to the missing boy "Will Byers"

From the talk around my friends, I had to see for myself and I must say I was hooked on my computer screen after one episode. The series does indeed a perfect job in capturing the viewers as after watching one episode, you get the feeling and urge to watch the following and then the next until you find yourself finishing the first season of the series. With a beautiful and touching storyline of family and friendship, the characters make the show compelling and relatable for the viewers. I so love Will's family and friends, as their advertures and strive to find him extends to lengths that show how a strong a bond could be and the extent of one's action to find one another.

Also as part of a teaser, the show manages to add the intense factor by adding the clouding mystery of how Will disappeared, and with a big hint, it isn't your average kidnapping, there's a lot more to it and more twisted indeed. With all that mentioned above and this intense and suspenseful mystery all together work to make this show a perfect family series to tune into for a fun time and a also for the great storyline and message it manages to provide.

YASS! I love Stranger Things and am always recommending it to friends. I watched it all in two nights it was easy to do because there was sonly 8 episode. The cast of the show was on the Chelsea show ( I also love her show so I also recommend it) and they said there is definitely going to be a second season which I am very excited about.

I, too binge watched this show in about a week and I must say it was the best show to binge watch that I have ever watched. I am extremely sad however that I have to wait so long for another season of it. The kids in this show are just such remarkable actors I instantly got hooked! It's almost like an old 70's sci-fi show mixed with American Horror Story and a little bit of Ghost Hunters. I believe that now would be a great time to bring back another season, before Halloween! That would honestly be the best time to do it!

The story line was a little difficult for me to follow at first but I was able to catch up eventually and ultimately found it much more amusing with the slight confusion. Eleven is like my spirit animal and I wish I had the amount of courage and strength that she has as a little girl at her age. I also love her haircut I mean that girl can seriously rock a buzzcut! The actress who plays her, Millie Brown is excellent at creating the exact emotion she needs to and I applaud her for that because a lot of younger actors and actresses cannot. I even found myself crying a few times because I was so emotional with the show!
