Is The Plot Interesting?

I loved the plot of Stranger Things season one because it’s a mixture of drama, sci-fi and mystery which are the genres I tend to go for when looking for a movie or tv show to watch.

Is The Acting Good?

This show has opened so many doors for its new talented stars. Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin have great chemistry and are amazing but it’s Millie Bobby Brown who totally steals the show. She’s just incredible!

Is The Directing Good?

The directing is where the style and tone of this show really comes from and I think the directing was great. It couldn’t have been much better. I also think that in a way the directing was very passionate.

Is The Cinematography Good?

The cinematography links with the style of the show which is something I always look out for when I’m watching a TV show or a movie. We end up with a mixture of different shots that each reflect the show in some way.

Is It Worth Watching?

I loved this show. It has so many things that I liked about it and very few things that I didn’t. The acting blew me away and the style of the show is very different to anything I’ve seen on TV lately.

5/5

Friends don’t lie.
