An Honest Trailer for Stranger Things

Screen Junkies does an Honest Trailer for the Netflix series Stranger Things. I’ve learned more from this trailer than from all the fan tributes I’ve seen -and I’ve seen a lot of them.

Many movie and TV critiques focus on implausibility as a problem, but Stranger Thingstreats implausibility as an asset, or even the main point. The show is an opportunity to wallow in childhood nostalgia and confront a scary and inexplicable world at the same time. So while this Honest Trailer has plenty of gags, it really likes the show.
