Movies, plays, TV shows are our savior; they are art forms that combine all art, sight, sound, and words. It is more than just entertainment and a one-time experience; it is something that sticks with us and broadens our horizons. We all agree that movies, plays, and television shows are all forms of entertainment. The classical Hollywood cinema, which existed from 1913 to 1969 and is still present in the majority of films produced in the country today, is the dominant style of American cinema. By far, the most powerful film industry in the world is Hollywood. In 2015, it earned an astounding $11.1 billion dollars, which is equivalent to the combined earnings of the next nine-film industries.
Since Netflix’s global expansion began in 2016, the streaming service has rewritten the rulebook for global entertainment — from television to film and, soon, video games. Hollywood used to export almost all of its global hit series and movies. “Arrival, Avengers, “The Wolf of Wall Street,””Django Unchained,” “Inception,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Get Out” are some of the biggest hits released in the past decade. The Best movie. Owing to Netflix’s investments in international television and film have resulted in massive global audiences for”Squid Game” from South Korea, “Money Heist” from Spain, and “Lupin” from France are just a few examples. Netflix recognized that in order to thrive on a global scale, it required both mass-market programming from the United States, such as “Stranger Things.” Stranger Things, The Last Kingdom, The Lost Daughter, Passing By, Digging, The Harder They Fall, The Crown, Mindhunter, Ozark, Cobra Kai, Outer Bank, The Umbrella academy are the Netflix series you.
Stranger Things is a one of the best horror science fiction dramas. The Duffer Brothers created this drama, which is now Netflix has it available. The brothers serve as showrunners and executive producers alongside Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. The first episode of the series was released on Netflix on July 15, 2016.

If we are talking about the qualities of this show, if you like the 1980s cinema, then this TV show will obviously inspire you. This show’s style is instinct. It’s a beautiful heart wrenching, terrifying, hilarious, suspenseful, well-written, well-acted, well shot, well-directed, and downright amazing series. The other thing we all love about this TV show is when they let you care for every single character, the character development is so well thought out, and we all freaking love it. However, many fans are likely to go back and rewatch the first two seasons of the show. With that in mind, it’s time to discuss the show’s highs and lows. Here are ten of the best Stranger Things episodes to date.

The Vanishing of Will Bye (Season 1, Episode 1)
Stranger Things’ tone has been praised by fans as evoking a strong sense of nostalgia while also feeling like a fresh take on something reassuringly familiar. Other series may have taken a long time to achieve this balance, but Stranger Things does so immediately.
“The Vanishing of Will Byers” is about exactly what it sounds like: Will Byers’ disappearance while riding home from a Dungeons & Dragons game with his friends and the chaos and searching that ensues. In documenting that chaos, the show introduces us to nearly all of its major players — including the four boys lead through a charming D&D session — and manages to set the stage for the season’s central conflict. By the end of this episode, we know who we care about, why we care about them, and what we’re afraid of… and we’ve been entertained for an hour. It’s a fantastic first effort.
The Monster number two (Season 1, Episode Six)
“The Monster” is the episode that ties everything together to kick off the second season’s endgame, so there’s a lot going on in an hour, and the show doesn’t waste any of it. Nancy and Jonathan’s bond grows stronger, Hopper and Joyce discover the source of Eleven’s abilities, and the link between Eleven and the Demogorgon is revealed, among other things.
The pivotal scene, which distinguishes this episode as one of the best, occurs near the end when Eleven intervenes to prevent a pair of bullies from forcing Mike to jump off a cliff and into the lake. One of the series’ best moments is Dustin’s defiant yell, “She’s our friend, and she’s crazy!” It establishes a bond between Eleven and the boys that lasts for much of the second season. Even when the story is otherwise predictable, Stranger Things excels at surprising twists and turns. This episode contains a fantastical scene as well as fast-paced, gripping storytelling that propels you forward into the next hour.
The Fight for Starcourt (Season 3, Episode 8)
Stranger Things’ season finale, which runs just over 70 minutes, sees all the pieces fall into place for a spectacular finish at the Starcourt Mall.
The episode begins off where the last one left off, with the group attempting to remove the monster’s half from El. She utilizes the last of her force to extricate it after a futile attempt. After that, the group decides on the next step. While the rest of the gang plans to seek safety in Murray’s home, Dustin, Erica, Steve, and Robin head to the radio tower to assist Joyce, Hopper, and Murray in navigating the Russian facility.
The Mind Flayer (Season 2, Episode 8)
We got one of the best episodes of the entire series before the end of season two. “The Mind Flayer” delivered the most heartbreaking scene in Stranger Things’ history.
An army of demo dogs converges on the Hawkins laboratory in the most intense episode this series has yet seen. Kids fought a Demogorgon and a swarm of government scientists in the last season. The odds are significantly worse this season. There are a lot of demo dogs, and they cause a lot of mayhem in the lab. It’s a lot bloodier than the previous season. The demo-dogs attack a crowded elevator, and, more importantly, they take Bob the Brain, the hero we never knew we had.
The Gate (Season 2, Episode 9)
Our heroes were reunited and joined forces in the season two finale, “The Gate,” after spending the majority of season two apart. They all split up almost immediately. Because all of the pawns have been placed, the finale doesn’t have much to do except twiddle its thumbs until the gate closes. Because there isn’t much tension left, the twiddling is quite amusing. Everything works out the way you want it to, Eleven returns, she puts a stop to her conflict with Hopper, and Will finally gets rid of the shadow monster. In the back of my mind, I hoped Roman would show up to provide a hand; in reality, that would have made the ending a little too neat.
The Monster (Season 1, Episode 6)
Following Jonathan’s voice, Nancy departs the Upside Down and crosses the gate. Jonathan remains in Nancy’s bedroom with the terrified Nancy, and Steve notices them together and suspects Nancy of betraying him. Mike misses El, the store thief who steals Eggo waffles. Terry Ives, who is catatonic, is visited by Hopper and Joyce. Her sister reveals that she took part in a government project that involved the use of drugs and that she miscarried her baby. She maintains, however, that she delivered the live baby. Jonathan and Nancy go out and buy weapons in order to track down the creature. Jonathan, on the other hand, runs into Steve, who is writing derogatory things about Nancy; they fight, and Jonathan is jailed by the cops. Lucas finds the Hawkins Laboratory by following his compass. Stranger Things’ first season was full of memorable scenes. One could argue that the most iconic came in “The Monster” and the audience is there with their full attention on every detail and plot.
The Sauna Test (Season 3, Episode 4)
El is speaking with Max and expresses her concern about Billy and Heather. Mrs. Driscoll is transported to the hospital by the police. In the vacant factory, the Mind Flayer strikes Tom and Janet, turning them into the Flayed. Hopper heals at Joyce’s place, and the two set out to meet Kline in order to learn the name of the assailant. Will the senses be able to detect it? The Mind Flayer and the gang of teens reunite to discuss the matter, which is Steve and Robin spying on the Russians, sans Dustin. They devise a strategy to confine Billy to the sauna in order to compel the Mind Flayer to abandon him. Billy’s mind being taken over by the Mind Flayer was a brilliant idea. Billy was established as a tough guy in season two, so when you combine that with the power of the monster, he’s an intimidating threat. “The Sauna Test” provided us with our first battle between him and the children. It didn’t let me down.
Spy (Season 2, Episode 6)
Surprisingly, the only episode in which Eleven does not appear is also one of the best. A lot of great things came together in “The Spy.” For starters, Will is admitted to the Hawkins Laboratory hospital, but the doctors are unable to determine the cause of his pain. Murray duplicates the tape in order to submit it to the press. Meanwhile, Dustin and Steve discover Dart has made his way out of the cellar by excavating a hole. While Dr. Sam Owens shows Hopper the magnitude of the Gate, Bob meets Joyce in the hospital. Will wakes up with no memory, and Dr. Owens discovers that he and the other hosts have been linked to a hive by a virus. He and the other experts examine how the shadow monster has impacted Will’s brain. Steve, Dustin, Lucas, and Max use flesh as bait in the junkyard in the hopes of catching Dart. However, the beast appears with more Demogorgons, trapping the children in the bus.
Bite (Season 3, Episode 7)
The penultimate episode of a season is often exciting. It sets the stage for the finale and ends on a cliffhanger. Larry Kline organizes a carnival for the citizens of Hawkins every July 4th. El and his friends are attacked by the Mind Flayer at Hopper’s cabin during the fireworks, and El is injured in her leg. They make their getaway in Nancy’s automobile. Meanwhile, Dustin and Erica are attempting to flee the Russian soldiers in a cart with the drugged Steve and Robin. They go back to the Starcourt Mall and take refuge in a movie theatre showing “Back to the Future.” To save the youngsters, Hopper, Joyce, Murray, and Alexei are driving to the Carnival. Alexei demonstrates how to deactivate the machine that is causing The Gate to open. That happened with “The Bite,” as it brought our characters closer together before the big climax.
Trick or Treat, Freak (Season 2, Episode 2)
Stranger Things’ second episode of the second season was a big Halloween episode. Eleven tells the story of how she got out of the Upside Down and met Hopper. She asks whether she can go trick-or-treating dressed as a ghost, but Hopper says it would be too risky. He pledges to bring her candies and watch a scary movie with Eleven when he returns. Hopper sets out to discover the truth behind the rotten pumpkins. Nancy wants to inform Barb’s parents that she has died, but Steve cautions her that she would face problems with the authorities if she does so. Max is invited to go trick-or-treating with Dustin and Lucas, as well as Mike and Will, who are costumed as the Ghostbusters. A lot of the season two promotional material revolved around the kids dressed as the Ghostbusters. “Trick or treat, Freak” provided us with some insight into her life since her disappearance, as well as our first look at the father/daughter bond formed with Hopper.
