Storyline

It's 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer's heating up. School's out, there's a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group's dynamic, and they'll have to figure out how to grow without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town's threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they'll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear. Written by Netflix

The beginning of the end
4 July 2019 | by damienmassartSee all my reviews

I am going to make it short : if the rest of the show looks like this episode, Stranger Things is definitively over. There is nothing to save in this long and boring « pilote » : the plot is weak, the « comedy tune » doesn't work at all, and even the young actors are bad. Clearly, Stranger Things has lost its spark. It's hard to say it because we loved so much this show, but since Season 2 it has begun an inexorable descent into hell. I hope that the following will make me lie.
