8 Stages Of Watching "Stranger Things"

8 Stages Of Watching "Stranger Things"

I love Steve, but I also love Jonathan...

Who doesn't love binge-watching Netflix shows? Over the summer, I had some free time and would use that time to unwind from my two jobs by watching Netflix. Recently, a the Netflix original series "Stranger Things" was released and I quickly sped through all eight episodes. If you've watched the show, you can probably relate to some of these stages, like I did:

1. Trying to figure out what the show is about.

I was hooked from the pilot episode, and I was left with so many questions. Ultimately, this made me want to dive deeper and deeper in to the show, which can sometimes be a challenge for script writers.


Why are the walls moving and the lights flickering? What is that scary monster noise I keep hearing? WHAT IS GOING ON?

3. I love Steve but I also love Jonathan.

Steve is a literal babe, but there's something about Jonathan's mysterious side that really pulls me in. I love them both, how the heck is Nancy supposed to choose between them?

4. Where is Barb? Why aren't her parents concerned?

Okay, imagine your daughter just disappearing. I think you would be pretty stressed out, but Barb's parents really don't seem to care at all.

5. I love these children with all of my heart.

I look at Mike, Lucas, Will, Dustin, and Eleven as my own children. When something happens to one of them, I have a minor panic attack. It's fine, I'm fine.


Every time El has a flashback to her days kept in Hawkins Lab, I die a little inside and say a quick prayer that she won't get kidnapped again by her "Papa".

7. When they finally figure out how to defeat the Demagorgon and you do a happy dance.

YAAAAAAS. Team work makes the dream work, and the teens, kids, and adults all collaborated to take down the horrific beast.

8. Happy ending? Yeah, right.

Sure, Will is safe and sound, but I can tell you right now that something is up and nothing will ever be the same again. Give me season two. Now.

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021



Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix. The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
