Netflix doesn’t care that it’s summer, it’s still a good time to release new shows on their streaming service.
So it comes as some great news that this Friday, Netflix will be releasing ‘Stranger Things’ a new sci-fi wistful thriller. Taking place in the 1980s, following a young boy’s disappearance and suspicious return. The show feels heavily based in tradition, with plenty of homages to old classic small town sci-fis.
