Stranger Things is back - and it's still Netflix's best show.. maybeby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

Netflix really has changed the game when it comes to television, and possibly even film. While not all of their original content may strike fire with its viewers, there are more than a few properties that really have gotten people as well as critics talking. It’s a platform which has brought back old series from the dead and has even allowed us to enjoy boxsets of old series we never thought we’d see again. Effectively, it’s hacking away at the DVD and Blu-Ray market, too. Focusing on their original content, however, there is one huge series returning this weekend that just about everyone with a Netflix account already knows about.

Stranger Things 2 kicks off just in time for Halloween as the new series brings us back to the sleepy town of Hawkins in 1984 – as the seemingly unaffected village readjusts to the fact that a supposedly deceased boy returned from a form of alternate dimension with the help of a strange little girl with super kinetic abilities. It sounds a bit of a mouthful – but the way the series is shot, along with its brilliant cast, has helped to cement itself in the consciousness of everyone who has come across it. The Duffer Brothers have intentionally created and crafted episodes directly inspired by 1980s horror and movie tropes without directly referencing anything (save a couple of movie posters and a science teacher watching John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ in the final episode of season one).

Fans of the first season will be happy to know that advanced screenings of the new run of episodes are, on the whole, extremely satisfying. Some sources even say that the new run exceeds expectations – that the same suspense, genuine character development and creepy mythology all seep through with ease – and that, only a few episodes in, we’re back into the best strides the show made in its first season. There’s not really a show like this on TV right now – making its unique appeal all the more attractive.

Stranger Things 2 debuts on Netflix this weekend after what may have been an unbearable absence for fans of the original run. It was recently named as one of the ten most ‘binge raced’ shows on the network worldwide – and there’s every reason the second season will help to boost that profile even further. Keep your eyes peeled!
