This thrilling Netflix-original drama stars award-winning actress Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, who lives in a small Indiana town in 1983 -- inspired by a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences. When Joyce's 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, she launches a terrifying investigation into his disappearance with local authorities. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.
So, something strange (huehue) just happened.
I saw this post on reddit about this supposedly new netflix show i've never heard about and how good it was.
6 hours later i've binged the first 6 of 8 episodes and have to conclude: wow - did not see that coming. And thats not in any way meant towards anything happening in the show (still got two more hours to watch after i'm home from barbecuing later), but that such a show can appear like that, without much of any big advertisement, and blow me the fuck away.
Its pretty fantastic, got some of that 80's E.T. / Stephen King / HP Lovecraft vibe - while still remaining damn authentic.
At least 50% of its actors are child actors, which in itself mostly should be something to scowl at, but lo and behold - they're also pretty damn fantastic.
8 hours ago I did not know this show existed, now its probably a early contender in the race for personal show of the year.
Remarkable. Well played, netflix.
