7. The story

There’s something about Stranger Things‘ story that captures you from the very beginning. We feel the introduction to this world is almost perfect. We get a first look at one big factor that the main characters will have to deal with throughout the show’s entirety. From there, we’re introduced to those characters and the world they live in and as everything continues, nothing is short of impressive.

Before we continue, some spoilers ahead.

Right from the get-go, we have an idea of what’s going on and what everyone involved will have to do. For example, Will Byers gets captured by a mysterious creature (the Demogorgon) and goes missing. Once this happens, everyone close to him, those being his family and friends, begin the search. Things don’t make much sense at the start and some even think Will may be dead. But, as the story progresses and more is revealed, it becomes more and more interesting.

As it goes on, we’re introduced to Eleven, the Upside Down, Chief Hopper, and much, much more. We learn that Eleven is something special because of her supernatural abilities and once she meets the gang, things become even more intriguing.

The story is full of long-term potential and even with a short amount of episodes in season 1, we were able to grasp and learn so much from it. The scope for a story like this is very large in scale and we have a feeling we haven’t even scratched the surface of it.

It’s interesting, original, entertaining and you’ll want to see more once it’s all said and done.
