On July 15, 2016, Netflix knocked another one out of the ballpark with its original series, Stranger Things, created by Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, and starring Winona Ryder, Matthew Modine, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton.
I watched all eight episodes almost in one sitting.
If you like strong female leads, '80's nostalgia, horror and sci-fi, with a heaping helping of teen romance and paranormal goings-on, then stop what you're doing and clear your calendar so you can binge-watch Stranger Things.
No spoilers here, but it was astonishing in its freshness and nods to so many great films from the 1980's.
Laura Vandervoort, the female lead of the Canadian TV network Space's Bitten, finished watching Episode 8 a day before me. We both gushed over the series on Twitter. I even had a brilliant idea for next season's villain.
