Stranger Things Box Set Binge
I’m not a massive TV watcher. I don’t set sky plus to record programs to watch later. Not an on-demand demander. Certainly not an IPlayer watcher.
I’m a box set binger and do not have the patience to wait for next week. I forget what program is on what day sitting ready and waiting bang on the clock for the opening credits.
I want to be entertained in full beginning to end in one sitting.
Enlighten me. Make me want more. Keep me guessing BUT NEVER KEEP ME WAITING.
THANK YOU TO THE MISTRESS THAT IS BOX SETS.
To begin with, I was a bit unsure of committing my time to Stranger Things. I had washing to sort and the grouting in the bathroom needed touching up BUT I was pressured into watching this by my 14-year-old daughter. All I can say is roll on Season 2 and hurry up October 31st!
- Four pre-teen boys into Dungeons and Dragons (yawn).
- One kid goes missing (oh getting interesting).
- Mothers distraught and the local police think she’s a nutter (full attention now).
- Walls that try and grab you and 24 sets of Christmas tree lights that communicate with you (past bedtime but who cares).
Imagine ET as a 15 with a pretty good soundtrack.
NOTE – Do not judge Stranger Things until at least episode 2. I was hooked!
Box Set binge time – over course of four evenings completed!
Red Stiletto rating 5/5
What the professionals say
Much like a Demogorgon in the night, Stranger Things crept out of nowhere and took us all by surprise. A curious little sci-fi drama which doffs an affectionate cap to 1980s Amblin-era sci-fi, while standing assuredly on its own two feet, the Duffer Brother’s curious concoction quickly became the water-cooler TV show of 2016. Anticipation for Season 2, due this year, is fierce. Stock up on Eggos and get up to speed on one of Netflix’s biggest original hits. http://www.empireonline.com
