Cinemascope: Stranger Things (Season 1)

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2016.

Plot line: This thrilling Netflix-original drama stars award-winning actress Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, who lives in a small Indiana town in 1983, inspired by a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences. When Joyce's 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, she launches a terrifying investigation into his disappearance with local authorities. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.

This is a throw back series of sorts. If you loved movies like ET and Super 8, and good old fashioned story telling, give this series a try. As usual with the best sci-fi, the themes explored are wonderful, and this one is fun and a little scary. I enjoyed every minute of it, and cannot wait to see what the next season brings.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a TV series worth watching.
