😨 “Spooky Things” 😨
Fans love the horror and weirdness that they’ve seen throughout both seasons that have come out. The fans have been going CRAZY over Stranger Things which explores ‘The Upside Down’, which is a parallel world that is filled with monsters and mystical powers. It also shows government conspiracies like human experiments, cover ups, and covert operations.
‘Jane Hopper’, known as ‘Eleven’ is one of the main characters. Eleven was kidnapped and was experimented on at the Hawkins National Laboratory. She has psychokinetic and telepathic abilities, but she also has very limited vocabulary words. El runs away from the only “home” she has ever known to find a world with people, and among those people is Mike Wheeler. Eleven helps Mike and his 2 friends (Lucas & Dustin) find their other missing friend Will.
😬Mileven Ship 😬
The fans have been going WILD over this ship, but the actors on the other hand are clearly annoyed by it. The on-screen love is so intense that fans are pushing the actor Finn Wolfhard (who plays Mike) over the edge. In an Twitch stream fans were wanting really badly for the 14 year old actor to make a comment about Mileven."'Mileven' is a FAKE thing that writers WROTE into a script" "no idea why people take it seriously" "NO MORE REFERENCES" "NO MORE MIKE" "NO MORE MILEVEN ON THIS STREAM" Finn said.
The young cast of Stranger Things have an off-screen and on-screen friendship. In the show they have a strong and amazing bond as they try to save their friend from the Upside Down, but in reality, that bond is more goofy. Millie Bobby Brown (plays Eleven) said, "We created a group chat, earlier on when we all got the job, so I kind of thought I knew them already. We also had school before we actually filmed this, [so] we knew who the prankster was, we knew who the sensible one was… It just really showed on camera.".
The 80s vibe 😌
The music, wardrobe, hairstyles, everything in Stranger Things reminds and even takes fans back to the the 80s. Fans are loving the actors and actresses funky wardrobe and the hairstyles that are full of volume! The music and games that appeared on the show have been found very interesting by fans as well.
This show is full of many more interesting things that have caught the attention of many fans. The fans are also very anxious for a new season to come out with even more exciting ‘Stranger’ things. Are you a fan? Tell us why in the comments below.
