I had no idea what to expect when I gave this series a try. In short, it is brilliant. The link gives an overview, the first few mins of which will
give you all you need to know.
Another brilliant series with a Stranger Things feel is Dark. I watched it on Netflix. The series is German but on Netflix it has been dubbed over in
English. This trailer has subtitles, I didn't see one that had been dubbed.
I wasn't sure of black mirror when I watched season1, I found the programming within it to be a bit suspect. The more recent stories were much better
but still had a good lesson in the tale, thinking of the one where your real life status depends on the number of likes you get online.
I still think Inside no. 9 is a brilliant series.

future. Hope you'll find some of these series interesting:
