My brain is still in 4-day weekend mode. Over the long weekend, I spent much of my free time multitasking work-related things and binge-watching Stranger Things (too many episodes to admit…I mean, the season only has 8 episodes).
Sci-fi, horror, suspense, and supernatural beings- all taking place in the 80s. The lead cast consists of both middle and high-school kids, which I was not sure about at first. YES, I was sucked in after watching episode 2 on Saturday. YES, I understand why it has a 9/10 IMDb rating.
Basically a young boy goes missing and an investigation begins. During the investigation, secrets begin to emerge- involving government experiments and a parallel universe known as “the upside down”. There is so much packed into 8 episodes… I wish this show was easier to explain in a summary, but I highly recommend! It keeps you interested and wondering throughout the entire season.
On Friday nights, I am usually beyond exhausted, ready to plop on the couch. How I spent my latest Fridays? Watching The People v. O.J. Simpson.
Instantly, I became engrossed in this series-engrossed enough to research a case that happened over 20 years ago. The series follows the case well, to the point where I had to look up a few parts up to see if their “facts” were actually real. Although I was too young to actually watch the trial of the century back in 1995, I could rely on this series to play out the case accurately. Like I said, I did some of my own research after watching the series!
As you can see, I need to watch some more uplifting shows. Any suggestions? Always looking for future binges.
