How Netflix Captivated Audiences With Its Unexpected Hit

Everyone knows the hit Netflix original series, Stranger Things. The show blew up over the summer and it has been earning more and more fans day by day. But, the real question is what’s the reason it got so popular? And how did it all happen so quickly?

It’s an amazing show in my opinion but, there are some key factors to the show’s hype that are undeniable. Stranger Things is set in the early 80’s, which gives it a sense of nostalgia. It creates a connection for older viewers and a retro vibe for younger viewers. The suspense and the mystery kept the viewers on the edge of their seat throughout every episode. The show was intense and that’s what kept the fans intrigued. Every episode was crazy and adventurous and we were never satisfied. We wanted more!

There was a hint of horror as well. It was subtle and it didn’t overwhelm the viewers. All the supernatural events and the unexplainable run ins made it all the more terrifying. It is very difficult to execute a great horror television show and they exceeded all expectations.

The whole show is available at the click of a button. Since it was a Netflix original, everyone was able to binge watch it while it was fresh and new. We didn’t have to wait for a new episode every single week. Another reason why the show is so glorious is because of the diversity of the cast. The children that play the main characters are terrific and display what true talent is. Plus, the show brought back the one and only, Winona Ryder. The iconic 80’s actress was back as Will’s mother and more hardcore than ever. The show wouldn’t have been the same without her.

The cinematic beauty of the show was so aesthetically pleasing, you just don’t want to look away. And let’s talk about that unforgettable theme song that we get to hear every time we put on the show! It’s so creepy and it gets you in the mood for the show, as if you weren’t already! The show as a whole makes everyone excited about television shows again.
