Books Netflix Need to Adapt ASAP

Dear Netflix, if you’d like to hire me to work on any of these potential shows/films, then please don’t hesitate and give me a call, I’ll be waiting! I will openly admit that I spend far too much time binge watching and rewatching some of my favourite Netflix shows, they’re the perfect escape and never fail to bring a smile to my face. After the success of recent book adaptations like To All The Boys, Bridgerton, and Shadow and Bone, this streaming giant has proven that it is capable of transporting these beloved storylines off the page and on-to the screen!

There’s always the worry when a studio announces that it’s adapting one of your favourite books, but now and then we are blessed with a visually beautiful and accurate adaptation that exceeds all of our expectations, a few of my favourites being the entire Harry Potter series, Catching Fire, and Game of Thrones. But then there’s the bad ones, I’m looking at you Allegiant and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters!

There are so many books on my shelf that I’d love to see adapted, so I thought I’d pitch a few to Netflix and hopefully if I manifest it enough something might happen…

You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson – This delightfully cute, sappic romance made my heart melt, my eyes water and made my day that little bit brighter. You Should See Me in a Crown follows Liz, a Black queer girl with anxiety who must run for prom queen in order to win the money she needs to get into her dream college, but whilst doing this she has to figure out how to put herself out there and deal with the blossoming crush she has on her opponent. Doesn’t that just sound like the perfect Friday night film?

Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuinston – WHY is this not a film yet? Joyful, honest and hands down one of the best romances I’ve ever read, Red, White and Blue will having you grinning from ear to ear!

Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers – A coming-of-age story for adults in their late 20s and for anyone lost in the void of expectation, this brilliantly fun and emotionally relatable story could easily become an iconic classic. With queer found families, sapphic love, a classic married in Vegas trope and discussions of mental health, this book is truly special and deserves to shine on screen!

Heartless by Marissa Meyer – A seriously underrated book and a villains story that finally deserves the spotlight. This prequel to Alice in Wonderland, focuses on the Cath and her path to becoming the wonderfully evil, Queen of Hearts. I’m thinking Once Upon a Time in Wonderland meets Disney’s Maleficent, that would give viewers a very different perspective of such an iconic villain. Plus I can imagine the costumes for this show would be EPIC!

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – Netflix has proved that they can successfully adapt and create beautiful fantasy fictional worlds, and I think it’s about time that Tahir’s incredible adventure gets its turn. An Ember in the Ashes is an original and gripping storyline that is carefully filled with a wide cast of characters and page-turning moments that subverts the overused and cliched tropes whilst providing us with a wonderfully exhilarating read. This fast paced adventure would come to life on screen and would leave audiences on the edge of their seats!

We Were Liars E.Lockhart – This book has been getting a lot of attention on booktok/bookstagram, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this adaptation on our screens soon. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll just say that We Were Liars is the perfect fragmented suspense novel that will catch audiences by surprise…

Get A Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert – This trilogy needs the ‘To All The Boys’ treatment! I’ve just finished reading the first book in this series and I’m so in love with these characters and this storyline, and I’m even tempted to make my own mini ‘get a life’ list. Chloe is strong, smart and hilarious and then we have Red who is just so swoony and kind and loving, and I’d give anything to see these characters come to life!

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang – This sweet and steamy romance deserves all the hype and all the love, it’s brilliant. This gender reversed Pretty Woman scenario follows Stella, who has Asperger’s syndrome and is that convinced she needs lessons on how to be good at sex and relationships and ends up hiring Michael, an escort, to teach her. It’s no secret that we need more diverse and inclusive representation in the media and I can 100% see this book becoming a heartwarming favourite.

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren – I’m a sucker for Christina Lauren, her books never fail to make me smile and are all just super adorable! I’d give anything to see any of her books adapted but if I had to pick one it would have to be The Unhoneymooners. This light-heated, enemies-to-lovers, fake dating, bundle of joy sends me head over heels.

Amy and Rodger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson – When I was gazing lovingly at my bookshelf thinking about what books I wanted to include on this list this book instantly stood out. It’s been years since I’ve read a Morgan Matson book and it’s criminal that NONE of her books have been adapted yet! I love them all but Amy and Roger will always have a special place in my heart, plus who doesn’t love a road-trip trope!

Meeting the Cast of Shadow and Bone (Netflix Virtual Fan Event)

I’m still a bit in shock, but last weekend I had the honour of attending a virtual fan meet & greet with the cast and creators of Shadow and Bone! WHAT?! It’s no secret that I’m utterly obsessed and head over heels for this show, so the chance to meet the cast was an experience like no other and one that I will cherish.

I was very fortunate enough to be one of the hundreds of lucky fans around the world who attended the exclusive Q&A, and it was lovely to interact with the cast and learn more about their filming experience. The love and enthusiasm this cast has for each other and this show is so wholesome and heartwarming, and I’d give anything to be a part of their little inner circle! So Netflix, if you want to fly me to Budapest to interview the cast for season 2 or hire me as an extra, then hit me up! I think I’d look good in a Kefta!

I don’t think I’ve ever smiled so much in my life, and I will openly admit that I fully fangirled when each cast member appeared on screen, so I was quite glad that there was a lot of us! And then, when Leigh and Eric joined us, I died. The Q&A was over zoom, and you were broken off into different rooms where you waited for the magic to happen and for your chance to submit questions to the cast. The first session was with the Crows (Freddie, Amita, Danielle, Kit and Calahan), and the energy these five brought with them to the call was contagious.

One of my favourite moments of the call was when the cast was asked what skills they had that would convince Kaz (Freddie) to hire them for a heist. If I was Kaz, then I’d hire Amita! She argued that her height would allow her to squeeze into small spaces, that her long hair could hide different things and that she could also speak lots of languages, I mean, what more could you want! Kit revealed that he had a great memory, and Danielle shared that she was an expert when it came to Instagram stalking and finding information about people!

The cast were also asked to share their characters favourite line, and I couldn’t agree more with their choices! Danielle’s favourite line was ‘Were you born a prick, or was it a choice?’, a quote that encapsulates Nina’s personality and relationship with Matthias. Freddie chose the line that I’m sure many fans were waiting for, ‘no mourners, no funerals’ and Amita picked the brilliant line that was ‘in that case, I’ll take my knife back.’ I agree with Kit when he said that Jesper has too many iconic lines to pick just one, and it surprised me to learn that Calahan’s favourite lines were when Matthias and Nina revealed their names to each other!

The second call was then with Ben, Jessie, Archie, Leigh and Eric and, it was here that we got to learn more about the cast and their antics outside of filming! The cast and crew are like one big happy family, and they revealed the cast regularly hosted game nights. One of their favourite games to play was the wine box game, and if you’ve never played the aim is to pick up a wine box with your teeth without putting your hands or knees on the floor. Each round you then cut off a piece until it’s just a bit of card on the floor. I don’t like to brag but I am a CHAMP at that game and would give anything to challenge the cast to a round!

I’ve been to a few meet-and-greets, but this one takes the win for a most unique one, so when it came to getting our ‘pictures’ I had to use a little bit of editing magic! This was such a fun experience that I’m very grateful to have been apart of so thank you again to Netflix and the incredible cast and crew of Shadow and Bone!

7 Reasons to Watch Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares

Happy Blogmas Day 4!

Stop what you’re doing and put this show on now, I can guarantee that it will instantly improve your mood and will start putting you in the festive spirit! This magical christmassy YA adventure has finally got its TV adaptation and it everything you need for a cosy winters night. All eight episodes, capture the whirlwind romance between the cynical Dash and the optimistic Lily, as they trade dares, dreams and desires in a little red notebook that hide in different locations across New York City! Yes, this is an adorable teenage love story but it is also a story about stepping out of your comfort zone and one which everyone can enjoy.

If that hasn’t sold you, then here’s 7 reasons why Dash and Lily needs to be on your watchlist this December!

All the Adorable Chrismassy Vibes

Christmas this year is a little different, and I know I’m not the only one when I admit that I not feeling very festive yet, but this show fixed everything and reminded me why I love this time of the year! The show embodies everything wonderfully magical about Christmas but you don’t have to love Christmas to enjoy it!

The Characters

When it comes to Christmas, you’re either a Dash or a Lily. And I’m 100% a Lily! I’m always skeptical when adaptations bring beloved characters to life but I was pleasantly surprise and I can’t praise the casting enough! I hadn’t heard of either of the actors that play Dash and Lily, but they’ve definitely made their mark and are now on my radar!

Midori Francis as Lily is genius, everything about her makes her such a heartwarming and loveable character who steps out of her comfort zone and learns to believe in herself. Her journey throughout the show and battle with insecurities was beautifully intimate and resonated with me on a personal level. Again, the casting for Dash was spot on! Austin Abrams carries the perfect amount of festive cynicism and youthful uncertainty that enables him to fall in love with the girl in the pages and to let himself be whisked away by light-hearted dares.

New York at Christmas

It’s been a dream of mine to one day visit New York during the festive period but with everything going on this year, I’ll settle for the next best thing. Both the book and the show are a love letter to the city and takes us on a journey through the streets of NYC as they attempt to complete each other’s increasingly elaborate dares. The city comes alive with festive magic and celebrates the beauty and hidden gems of the city. We also get to experience the ionic wonder of the The Strand, a place every reader has on their bucket list! I don’t want to spoil anything but that end scene was GOALS!

All The Different Relationships

Not only do we get to experience Dash and Lily’s blossoming relationships, but Lily’s brother Langston’s. Just like me he’s a hopeless romantic and loves to play the matchmaker role alongside his boyfriend Benny. Their dynamic relationship and blossoming romance was one of my favourite elements of the entire show and never failed to put a smile on my face! They help Lily discover the courage to make the notebook and continue on this romantic and festive adventure.

The Perfect Binge Watch

Each episode is only 25 mins long and are so easy to watch, making them the perfect show for either casual viewing or an evening binge watch. I will confess that I watched the entire series in one evening and it definitely helped me get into the Christmas spirit!

It’s a GOOD YA Adaptation

I beginning to trust Netflix more when it comes to adapting beloved YA adventures, and this was no exception! I will admit its been years since I read the book but there are elements I instantly remember when I saw them on screen! Of course there’s a little bit of tweaking and a fresh take on things but I thought they did a really good job at creating a unique and adorable Christmas romance that everyone can enjoy.

The Soundtrack

One of the most underrated elements of any TV show and if you’re ever struggling to find a playlist to listen too, then search your favourite TV shows! It’s got the perfect mix of Christmas classics, Joni Mitchell and some new favourites. Plus we get a cameo from The Jonas Brothers and a snippet of their new Christmas anthem ‘Like It’s Christmas’!

7 Reasons to Watch Schitt’s Creek

It’s about time I jumped on the bandwagon and dived head first into this absolute gem of a series. This charming and light-hearted comedy is the perfect binge-worthy show and one which has kept me company for my two weeks in self-isolation. Schitt’s Creek follows the Roses and their fall from grace after going bankrupt, their only remaining asset, a small dysfunctional town called Schitt’s Creek. If you’ve yet to watch this series then here’s a list of seven reason why this show should be next on your watch list!

It’s an Emmy Winning Show

This show won big at this years Emmys, sweeping up a HUGE 9 awards, so you know that it’s not just me who thinks this show is brilliant. The show was released all the way back in 2015, and flew under the radar until the release of it’s second series, which saw the Roses become more accustomed to living in one of America’s forgotten towns. Since then the show has gone from strength to strength as we witness these characters blossom and develop new qualities that now define them.

Family Dynamics

The dysfunctional love and unconventional communication shared between the Roses makes any family look normal but it is these unique family dynamics that make this family so wonderful. From the shouting matches between motel walls to the simple instructions of how to ‘fold’ cheese into a recipe, these are the moments that make this show such a cult comedy classic that anyone can enjoy.

Moria’s Wigs and Wardrobe

One of my new goals in life is to be as fabulous as Moria. Her almost avant-garde and striking style juxtaposes the simple and dated style of Schitt’s Creek and I always look forward to see what she pulls out of her wardrobe next. I also love the fact that each one of her wigs is named and that they all have their own individual personality, its fair to stay she has a stronger relation with her wigs than she does with her kids! Despite that she is still one of the most fabulous characters since Carrie Bradshaw!

Ultimate Binge Watch

Each episode is only 20 mins long, which is ideal for causal viewing or that cheeky episode now and then! But pace yourself or you’ll do what I did and watch it all in two weeks. There’s a laidback ease and effortless comedic value to this show that makes it such a fun show to binge, so if you’re looking for your next watch then definitely give this one a chance.

The Father-Son Duo

Eugene and Daniel Levy are the masterminds behind this show, their creativity and comedic brilliance makes this riches-to-rags storyline such a success. There’s always that apprehension when working with family but this show proves that two heads are better than one and the brilliance behind these two creative minds.

The Friendships

Stevie and David’s friendship is one of my favourite elements of this show, they’re two people who on paper shouldn’t click but they share an unbreakable emotional connection like no other. From the moment David was forced to live in Schitt’s Creek he’s found a kindred spirit in Stevie, as they share a sense of humour and general dislike of other people. Their no judgement and honest friendship lead to comedic gems and a chemistry that is so enjoyable to watch. Also Stevie’s eye-rolls are literally everything.

The Relationships

The constant bickering and back and forth banter between siblings Alexis and David, is one of the things that make this show relatable. I’ll never be able to say the name ‘David’ in the same way ever again. But despite this, the show does a fantastic job at weaving emotion into heartwarming scenes and moments that highlight the unbreakable bond the family share.

I don’t want to spoil anything but this show exceeds when it comes to romantic relationships. David’s sexuality is totally normalised when its announced that he is pansexual, no one bats an eyelid which is so refreshing. All the way back in season one there is a wonderful analogy about ‘wine’ preferences that is in equal parts comedic and natural, its genius.

Cursed (Netflix) – TV Series Review

*Major Spoilers Ahead*

Arthurian legends have always held a special place in my heart, especially due to my love of the BBC show, Merlin. So when Netflix released the trailer for their new re-imagining of such a beloved tale, I was instantly intrigued and filled with high expectations. Sadly, I was majorly let down and I’m gutted!

All legends are easily adaptable, giving writers the ability and freedom to craft unique storylines that are filled with a cast of characters whose paths are destined to intertwine. The casting for these characters was great but what they really lacked was depth and understanding, I wanted so more from these characters and more about the different cultures within their world. I wish they explored the different types of fey and I would have loved more from the Viking storyline, but we only just brushed the surface!

Also they need to stop killing off all the interesting and minor characters, I understand that there needs to be some deaths to fuel characters motivation and revenge but these were not necessary. The shows writers tease us with these new characters and their budding relationships with major characters and then they’re shot down by the enemy? If you’re going to kill them off at least give us more of a relationship with them. Speaking of relationships, Langford’s chemistry with Terrell was an element I really enjoyed, the two star-crossed lovers relationship is delicately well paced and was one of the most genuine relationships throughout the entire show.

The cut-aways were also beautiful, but were used ineffectively, as they made the show feel disconnected and slow. There are so many intricate yet dull storylines and what needs to be worked on, if there’s going to be a second season, is the show-creators storytelling ability and that bridge between the character and the audience.

Another element I enjoyed were the fight scenes, especially those involving the ‘Weeping Monk’ as they were epic, well-paced and choreographed beautifully. I’m always fond of the villain, and I found myself wanting more scenes with the ‘Weeping Monk’, he was one of the only characters (along with little Squirrel) who I enjoyed watching.

Anyway, I’m curious to see if there will be a second season and if they’ll work on the audiences feedback, as I know I’m not the only one who feels this way about the show. Let me know what you thought about the show in the comments below!

P.S I Still Love You Film Review – Romance Week 2020

Lara Jean is back with the second instalment in Jenny Han’s most beloved series, and after the huge success and positive response of the first film it was fair to said that I had high expectations! I will admit I didn’t love this film as much, as I felt it lacked the light-hearted fun and feel-good elements of the first film, but nevertheless it was an enjoyable watch and the perfect film for a cosy night in.

What I loved the most about this film was the addition of all the new relationships, we of course have Lara Jean and John Ambrose but we also have Chris and Trevor and Trina and Dr. Covey. There’s just something about a blossoming romance that warms your heart and the snippets we saw of them both together were adorable. As always the on screen chemistry between Lana Condor and Noah Centineo is simply natural and both perfectly embody young love. In the first half of the film we get to witness the beginning of their real relationship and a few of their fairy-tale first dates and its not until the second half of the film when doubt creeps in and causes cracks to form. It’s only right that I talk about John Ambrose! Jordan Fisher played him so well, he was charming, kind, adorable and was a suitable rival for Peter.

Family is another thing that is hugely important in these films and learning about Lara Jean’s Korean heritage and mother was just so lovely, I particularly enjoyed the whole story about the green beans! Another thing they included from the book was the whole storyline around Genevieve’s parent divorce and her past close friendship with Lara Jean, and hopefully we get to see this develop in the next film. Stormy will always be one of my favourite characters from this series, she’s so fabulous and Holland Taylor played her perfectly.

As I mentioned earlier, I felt like this film was missing some light-hearted fun moments that the first film had, I wish they had included the game of Assassins and extended the treehouse scenes as I really wanted to see more character interactions within the group. So far this series still remains one of my favourite and most accurate adaptations, both films are fun, light-hearted and romantically enchanting adventures that everyone can’t help but love.

Top Christmas Films on Netflix – 12 Days of Blogmas

Watching Christmas films is the perfect way to get into the festive spirit, so I thought I’d share a few of my favourites that are currently available to stream on Netflix.

  1. Let it Snow (2019) – I remember reading the book ages ago and the film adaptation manages to capture the love and adorableness of the story and its characters. This is the perfect YA film for those cosy winter nights.
  2. A Christmas Prince Trilogy (2017-2019) – This series is so wonderfully bad that I can’t help but love it. This romantic comedy follows Amber, an aspiring journalist who is sent to the winter wonderland of Aldovia to cover a press conference given by crown prince Richard, who is set to take the throne following his father’s recent death. The rest of the film is filled with mystery and romance as well as lots of Christmas spirit.
  3. The Holiday Calendar (2018) – A budding romance, a magical calendar and lots of Christmas joy. This is another heart-warming Christmas film which is perfect to watch on those winter nights with a big cup of hot chocolate.
  4. The Knight Before Christmas (2019) – Vanessa Hudgens is becoming the Queen of Christmas films. This is another adorable and perfectly romantic Christmas film that is guarenteed get you in the festive spirit.
  5. Nativity (2009) – If you’re from the UK then this film has to be on your list of go-to Christmas films! The film focuses on Martin Freeman’s character Paul, who is a bit of a scrooge, but is put in charge of organising his school’s Nativity performance. Long story short things get a bit out of hand, lies are told but in the end, you’re left with a fun and unique performance and a set of catchy songs you can’t get out of your head!
  6. The Princess Switch (2018) – The Parent Trap but make it Christmas and more romance centred! This has all the elements for a perfect christmas film and is one that can be enjoyed by all.
  7. The Christmas Chronicles (2018) – Who knew that Kurt Russell would make such a good Father Christmas! Siblings Kate and Teddy Pierce hatch a scheme to capture Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. When the plan goes awry, the kids join forces with a somewhat jolly Saint Nick and his loyal elves to save the holiday before it’s too late.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – Film Review


This film was everything and more! I’m a huge fan of the books so I was very excited and apprehensive about the film as I have been let down before with film adaptations but after seeing the trailer I knew we were in for something special. Like the books, the film was heart-warming, funny and a wonderful representation of love and romance.

Casting recently for YA adaptations have been on point, but this has to be my favorite so far. The chemistry between Lara Jean (Lana Condor) and Peter (Noah Cons) was something straight off the page and it was lovely to see them both eventually fall for each other. Their scenes in the cafe were among some of my favourites as they both bounced off each other perfectly and had me smiling for ear to ear. Another thing I loved was their connection on an emotional level when they had deep and meaningful conversations about their parents and own struggles, it added another layer to their blossoming romance.

Although the film mainly focused on the romance between Lara Jean and Peter, we were still treated to some lovely scenes between the Song sisters, my particular favourites being those between Lara Jean and Kitty! I spent the entire film smiling, as everything was just wonderful. There’s just something special about seeing one of your favourite fictional characters finally come to life and being able to see their story on the screen in front of you.

Jenny Han’s cameo was a nice little extra as well as all the little bits from the books that I’m sure fans will really appreciate. I’m not even sour that they didn’t include the Halloween scene in the film as everything else was perfect, so thank you Netflix and Awesomeness TV for doing YA adaptation right!

I can’t praise this film enough as it was wonderful, it has already earned a place on my list of favourite romance films! After watching it, I jumped onto Twitter and it was lovely seeing so many other people loving this film as much as me, so fingers crossed that thanks to such a great response they’ll make a sequel. If you want more of Lara Jean and Peter then I highly recommend that you read the books, and I’ll leave my review to the first book here!

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – Cast and Trailer Reaction

First things first, when did this happen? I literally just stumbled onto Jenny Han’s Instagram and discovered that they’re making her much-loved series into a film and they’ve already announced the cast and everything! Seriously, have I been living under a rock or something? The wonderful thing is that the film is being released on the 17th August on Netflix which means that I can sit in bed with a big bowl of popcorn and watch it, yay!

I’m probably the only one who didn’t know about this film but I thought I’d react to the casting and trailer anyway and hopefully, there’s someone out there like me who had no idea that one of the best YA contemporary series is being made into a movie.

Trailer Reaction

I am living for this trailer! Everything about it reflects what I love about the books, the cuteness, the hilarity and just how heartwarming these characters and this story truly is. If you haven’t read these books, please do because they are the perfect summer read and I can guarantee that you will fall in love with them. Some of my favourite moments in the trailer are the scene with Lara Jean and Josh in the field and of course the glimpse we get of the hot tub scene with Peter!


Casting Reaction

Lara Jean Covey: Lara Condor – This is exactly how I envisioned Lara Jean, Lara Condor fits the part perfectly. She’s got that beautiful, caring and innocent look and I think the casting directors did a fab job picking her! I loved her in X-Men Apocolypse but this role is very different and I’m excited to see her bring one of my favourite contemporary characters to life.

Peter Kavinsky: Noah Centineo – When I first saw pictures of him I was a bit skeptical but after seeing him in the trailer my opinions are completely changed! I’m now in love with this casting as he’s definitely got that cute and cocky look just like Peter! I honestly can’t wait to see how they portray the relationship between Peter and Lara Jean and I’m keeping all my fingers crossed that they include a baking scene because how cute would that be?!

Josh Sanderson: Israel Broussard – Perfect! He’s so cute and has the boy next door kinda look which I am loving! The casting of Josh and Lara are probably my favorites, they’re both so accurate and exactly how I pictured them!

John Ambrose McClaren: Jordan Burtchett – This is another one I struggled with as I always pictured him as a blonde but the more I look at him, the more I see him as John Ambrose! Still mixed feelings though but nevertheless I look forward to seeing him on screen!

Kitty Covey: Anna Cathcart – Kitty is one of the most important characters in the film, so I was super excited and nervous to see who they had cast and if they would live up to Kitty’s vivacious and sassiness!

Margot Covey: Janel Parish – I loved her in Pretty Little Liars but I can’t stop seeing her as Mona, whose character is a complete contrast to Margot! But despite that, I’m totally getting that caring yet serious vibe from her and I just can’t wait to see how all the Song sisters interact with each other.

5 Reason Why You Should Watch Stranger Things


If you don’t know about ‘Stranger Things’ where have you been for the past few weeks, like seriously it has been all over the internet and social media — its everywhere! ‘Stranger Things’ is set in the 80’s and is a unique supernatural drama which will have you sitting on the edge of your seat! Here are five reasons why you should binge-watch it right now…

1.The Kids

The child actors in this series are some of the best I’ve seen and are all truly incredible. Their performances are powerful yet sometimes haunting and bring these brilliant characters to life in a realistic and lovable way. The four characters who anchor the series — Mike, Eleven, Lucas, and Dustin — are all played by unknown actors but all have made their mark in the industry from their performance here and I really look forward to seeing more of their work in Season 2!

2. Winona Ryder

Winona Ryder triumphantly returns to our screens as Joyce Byers, a chain-smoking, bedraggled single mother searching for her missing son. Ryder manages to humanize a role that posed a real risk of being annoying or repetitive; Once again another incredible performance.

3. The Soundtrack 

Right from the opening sequence, eerie I fell in love with the series soundtrack and score. It has an eerie but dramatic feel to it while also creating an eighties vibe to it and I highly recommend you give it a listen. The soundtrack throws you straight back into the eighties with his classic songs like “Should I Stay or Should I Go” by The Clash, or “Africa” by Toto; Just brilliant.

4. The Storyline

Another amazing element of this series as it never fails to keep you on the edge of seat thanks to it’s pacing and mysterious plot. It certainly wasn’t predictable but I loved all the subtle foreshadowing from the very first episode and I look forward to seeing where the story takes us in season 2.

5. The Throwbacks

Although I am not from the 80’s, it was great to see all the throwbacks and references to other classic 80’s films like ET and The Goonies which are some of my favorite.

I highly recommend that if you haven’t watched ‘Stranger Things’ then you should drop everything and binge watch it now! It is such an incredible show that will leave you wanting more and I feel inclined to say that it is my favorite TV show of 2016.
