Seasons 1-3
2 September 2020 | by wrightjr-28649See all my reviews

Netflix is all about new subscriptions. If you're not continually bringing in new viewers it's bye bye and as a result some good shows that have a steady viewer base get cancelled ( Santa Clarita Diet). Stranger Things keeps bringing them in hence besides the fact it is dying a slow death it continues. The first season was lots of fun- they got the early 80s on but by Season 3 it's clearly just rehashing the same old. Even the cast seems bored especially the chick who plays Nancy.
