Binge Watching: Stranger Things  
While I was busy watching Suits and drawl all over Gabriel Macht (sorry but I'm human) my friends were binge watching Stranger Things and going crazy about it.
Since my friends have AWESOME taste when it comes to shows, I decided to give it a go and: DAMN, it was good!


To me Netflix means Quality and the network nailed another amazing show. One of the things I like the most about this company is that they ALWAYS nail the characters. Instead of casting unbelievably gorgeous actors, they cast humans, people that are easy to relate to... They're not just normal looking (I don't want to use the word average because I really hate the word and what it stands for) they also dress as we all would dress for the occasion (no one runs in super high heels and has perfectly curly hair and make up throughout the whole day) and act like real people. The good guys aren't always good, they make mistakes and have bad ideas, and the bad ones are not completely evil. Even in shows like Jessica Jones and Daredevil, the nemesis of the hero is not plain evil. Look at Wilson Fisk or Kilgrave... We see the good in them...

I'm a huge fan of Bloodline because of this, and now I am a huge fan of Stranger Things as well. The story is just insanely good and the kids are AMAZING! Millie Bobby Brown should win all the awards for her interpretation of Eleven! She was fantastic, but all of them were brilliant!

If you have't watch it yet just try it! And then go see them @ The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon (HERE). Jimmy had the time of his life playing with them!

LOL! Yes, I thought the same thing, I was waiting for that classic Star Wars line. :P

OMG the Barb sketch on Jimmy killed me. I think that was the saddest part of the whole show. But maybe she will be back...MAYBE SHE WILL BE THE MONSTER! I mean, it had infected her. Maybe they are more than just incubators...OOOOOH! (okay I just want Barb to come back)

I swear they managed to do everyone's hair and makeup so right, I really felt like I was watching an 80s movie. The girl who played Karen reminded me SO MUCH of the actress from 'Ferris Bueller' and Legend' with those big doe eyes and the way her front teeth were so perfectly straight...
