I know, it's a peculiar pairing, but this is the dilemma that I have been struggling with the past week and a half: The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio or Netflix Stranger Things. What to watch, what to watch?
So how does Stranger Things compete with this once in a lifetime event, because even when it comes around again in four years it will be a different set of athletes, in a different location, and, in some cases, a slightly different set of rules for competition? Well, Stranger Things hits all of the right notes when it comes to a sci-fi mystery with mass appeal. I've heard it compared to the Goonies, which I LOVE, but Stranger Things is darker. Being set in the 80s and centering around a group of kids trying to solve a mystery, with a great mix of characters and being totally addictive is, at least for me, where the similarities end.
