Netflix has plenty of incredible original content but here are 11 reasons why Stranger Things is the best series it has to offer.

Back in July of 2015, Netflix released the first season of Stranger Things. Prior to its release, it wasn’t a show that many people were talking about, nor one that was on our radar. This changed fairly quickly once we finally sat down and decided to watch it. After its release, the show developed quite the buzz, so we had to see it. After sitting down and watching it in its entirety, it may be the best show on Netflix.

Since the conclusion of the first season, we’ve been highly anticipating the release of season 2. With the release looming, we’ve decided to go into detail as to why the series, as a whole, is the best Netflix show. Obviously, this is a bold claim since there are many other phenomenal shows. For example, there’s House of Cards, Daredevil, Orange Is the New Black, Narcos, and the list goes on and on.

There’s something about Stranger Things which stands out though. The characters, the story it tells, the setting and the music are just some of the many things that make this series extremely memorable.

Being only eight episodes long, a few more would’ve been welcomed. At the same time though, it’s the right amount of episodes for the story it told. From the moment you sit down to watch it, you’ll be hooked and, like us, you may watch the entire season in one day.

In the next couple of slides, you’ll see 11 reasons why we believe this is the best series on Netflix. This is subjective and very open to discussion, but we feel this show has certain details and elements that separate it from the rest.
