Goofs

The nuclear power plant is apparently located in landlocked, open countryside. There does not even seem to be a small stream or brook nearby. That is not possible. Commercial nuclear power plants have water-cooled reactors and need to sit on a riverbank or on the sea shore for a reliable supply of ample cooling water. See more »

German masterpiece!
8 July 2019 | by Mork_the_BorgSee all my reviews

This feedback is currently based on the first 10 episodes of season one (still watching the series as we speak), and to be honest it made me downgrade my rating for 'Stranger Things' quite a bit. It's clear that this series is the child of a genius - everything just works. The acting is great, the cinematography is great, the soundtrack is awesome (reminds me of Klaus Schulze at times), and the story-line is mind-boggling. This series is just miles above anything that leaves Hollywood. Wish that all productions could be like this. Thanks Netflix for bringing this awesome series to me screen. Say bye-bye to public television!
