Stranger Things Season One 

 

Everywhere I looked someone was talking about Stranger Things and how Season Three was out on Netflix. I saw Stranger Things Season One on sale at Target for eight dollars. I thought I might as well check this show out. After all it was only eight dollars. It was the Blu-ray + DVD Collectors Edition too. What I did not realize is there are only eight episodes of this season. In essence I paid one dollar per episode before paying the massive taxation.

Stranger Things Season One is a horror show. It starts really scary and then tones it down until the end. There are scary moments in the other episodes. Stranger Things Season One is so short that this feels more like a made for television movie than an entire season of a show. There is also blood, gore, death, bad language, lack of attire, enticement to lust, sex outside of marriage and more. Some of that content like the lack of attire is pretty light.

Stranger Things Season One is set in the 1980s. We run across things like rotary phones. One of the young boys gets kidnapped by this monster thing. His mother gets into contact with him since he is in an alternate dimension close to ours and he can impact things like lights. We learn about a secret military project and a girl that was held captive there. She is pivotal to the plot likes in Stranger Things Season One.

The young girl in Stranger Things Season One with psychic powers is called Eleven. That is all she knows about herself since it is tattooed on her arm. She can use telekinesis to a lethal degree if she so desires. There is a price to her powers though. Using them drains her, and almost always causes her nose to bleed. The monster from the other dimension is like a shark and can smell blood.

There is something about Stranger Things Season One that caught my interest. The story telling is pretty good. The concept is one where we keep peeling back layers of the onion to learn more as we progress through the season. I actually enjoyed my time with Stranger Things Season One. I plan on watching future seasons as I have the time.
