At Dowling, it is hard not to be asked this one question at least 5 times: “Have you watched Stranger Things?” With countless people recommending this Netflix Original, I had to try it out.
What I thought I knew before:
-I think it’s about experiments on children, and they run away?
-I know I’ve heard that everyone loves “eleven.”
And then I pressed play…
-Wait. It has supernatural elements?
-I’ve seen so many pictures of this kid with the curly hair and hat.
-Wait, how old are these children? They’re swearing and talking like teenagers.
-It’s funny how much much ’80s stuff they’re incorporating.
-Aw, this curly-haired kid’s smile is too cute.
-So are the three kids getting kidnapped on their way home?
-Wait. What is this kid going to do with just some bolts?
-Well I guess this kid is holding a gun now.
-How does this kid know how to use a gun?
-Ah, so only one kid gets kidnapped.
-So, do the other kids have to find Will?
-Oooh, they call episodes, “chapters.” I like it.
-I’m liking this background music; it makes it feel more lighthearted.
-They’re really embracing the cliché of cops and doughnuts.
-Aw cute, the kids are so dorky.
-Oooh, so this is “Eleven.”
-Ohhh, so the kids are the supernatural ones. I love it.
-Wait, did one of the supernatural kids kidnap Will?
– Oh my goodness, those huge walkie talkies.
-Aw, Eleven is such a cutie when the cook tells her to smile.
-Aw, nothing can go right for Eleven.
-Wow, these experiments are really secretive.
-Isn’t the cook seeing watching them try to take Eleven?
-I bet she meets up with the three boys and they try to save Will together.
-Awe yeah, I called it; they met Eleven.
– OK, so this is cool.
