Stranger Things Inspired T-Shirt
Wow! What an awesome 1st season from Netflix and the Duffer Brothers!
In recognition of this Netflix original series we have produced The Upside Down T-Shirt.
First and foremost, let me just publicly say thank you to Netflix, the Duffer brothers, the Stranger Things cast, and everyone involved in the making of this series. If you haven’t seen it yet I suggest you sign up for Netflix, grab your beverage of choice, a bag of popcorn, and binge watch this 8 episode series at least twice.
In a nut shell (and I will add the Wiki content below for a more accurate and professional break down) the story takes place in a small town like all good suspenseful thrillers. The show builds around a group of young boys that are childhood buddies. Like a lot of us that teetered on the nerdy side as youth they were into role playing games, hanging out in their parents basement at night, rolling dice, and battling demigods.
One of the boys (Will) vanishes on his way home from a night with the boys. His disappearance goes unexplained and even you as the viewer are totally left in the dark as to what could have happened. Meanwhile on the other side of town there is a Government funded lab that is conducting questionable experiments on human subjects and…. well, other stuff. The same night the boy disappears a young girl (Eleven) escapes the facility. Later, she ends up crossing paths with the missing boys friends as they search for him and provides a little assistance.
Now, that is the most dumbed down version of Stranger Things you will ever read. I don’t want to ruin anything for you would-be viewers that come across this article and have your experience spoiled by the likes of this neanderthal. Below are some other breakdowns of the show that might be a little more revealing.
From The Official Stranger Things Wiki Page:
On 6 November 1983 in Hawkins, Indiana, 12-year-old Will Byers vanishes mysteriously. Will’s mother, Joyce, becomes frantic and tries to find Will while Police Chief Jim Hopper begins investigating, and so do Will’s friends: Dustin, Mike, and Lucas. The very next day a psychokinetic girl is found by the group, knowing the whereabouts of Will. As they uncover the truth, a sinister government agency tries to cover it up, but a more insidious force is lurking as well.
This thrilling Netflix-original drama stars award-winning actress Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, who lives in a small Indiana town in 1983 — inspired by a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences. When Joyce’s 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, she launches a terrifying investigation into his disappearance with local authorities. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.
Stranger Things Cast:
Quick Note: There are few shows I watch where the entire cast fit’s the character profile to a T and this is one of them. There wasn’t one time that I felt detached from any of the characters, everyone stayed in their lane…. and even the Winona is listed as the star of the show (see above from Google listing), Millie Brown (Eleven) crushes her performance in a way that I haven’t enjoyed since Walter White. This kid rocks!
Here is a partial character list:
• Winona Ryder – Joyce Byers
• David Harbour – Jim Hopper
• Finn Wolfhard – Mike Wheeler
• Millie Bobby Brown – Eleven
• Gaten Matarazzo – Dustin Henderson
• Caleb McLaughlin – Lucas Sinclair
• Natalia Dyer – Nancy Wheeler
• Charlie Heaton – Jonathan Byers
• Cara Buono – Karen Wheeler
• Matthew Modine – Dr. Martin Brenner
• Joe Keery – Steve Harrington
