Review: Stranger Things 2

November 06, 2017 1 min read

As Netflix crawls further into debt, and continues its larger push into original programming, it means there's a lot more pressure on its flagship shows to succeed. Stranger Things' first season hit a nostalgic vein, and made a huge impact on social media and general conversation with its many references to science fiction and adventure films of the 80s. For as many things as it borrowed, it contributed new ideas as well. 

My fear going into Stranger Things 2 was whether or not the series' formula of essentially delivering a best of the 80s mixtape would be successful a second time around. I had no idea the Duffer Brothers would just literally do that.
