Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 1 Review

You speak of monsters and superheroes. That’s the stuff of myth and fairytales. Reality, truth is rarely so simple. People are not so easily defined. Only by facing all of ourselves. The good and the bad can be become whole.”

About Stranger Things

Stranger Things 4 was revealed on September 30, 2019, as the fourth season of Stranger Things. This season, unlike previous seasons, is divided into two volumes, with the first volume, consisting of seven episodes, premiering on Netflix on May 27, 2022, and the second volume, consisting of two episodes, set to debut five weeks later on July 1, 2022. The fourth season, like the previous ones, includes a time leap, taking place in March 1986, and travels to places other than Hawkins, Indiana, such as California and Russia.

Synopsis from Stranger Things Fandom

It’s been six months since The Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery, that if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.

I waited years for this season 4 and another month after the season debut before watching it because I wanted to see it all on Netflix, only to discover that I have to wait even longer. I had not considered reading the fans site before viewing it. That’s why I was surprised to see that, unlike past seasons, this one will be split into two volumes. My fault entirely. Anyway, “Stranger Things” is a really bizarre show for me. I recall watching Season 1 Episode 1 several times. I wasn’t interested in continuing because I assumed the series was intended for children. I enjoy watching zombie and monster shows and movies, but after seeing this one, I realized it wasn’t for me. After some time, I attempted to revisit the first episode of Season 1 three times in order to grasp the story’s flow. Then I saw myself going till the end of Season 3. It became one of my favorites after that.

The way they utilized the 1980s was fantastic. I adored their clothing, which are vibrant and make you feel as though you’ve journeyed through time and different locations, particularly the Upside Down. Stranger Things reminds me of the movie “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” only there are only two realms in Stranger Things: the regular world and the Upside Down. And in Doctor Strange, you will see different versions of yourself in multiverse, as opposed to Stranger Things, where you will only see monsters but in exact replicas of the locations. like a mirror of the place, but the reflection was horribly full of monsters.

Some viewers were upset by the fact that the series’ younger characters appeared to be far older than they had been in the previous three seasons, despite the fact that it was only set months after season 3. They also believe that TV series with kid actors will jeopardize the series since kid actors are obviously maturing and developing. But that does not bother me. In Stranger Things 4, I sensed the purity of the young actors. They’re still the same people they’ve always been. They didn’t seem to age much to me. They embraced their roles in the show. It’s as though they’re actually present. I can sense the feelings. It’s as if I’m on a roller coaster ride, laughing, astonished, and afraid all at once.

This season has a lot of my favorite sequences. But if I had to choose only one, it would be the last episode, in which the antagonist’s truth was exposed. What is he really like? I was blown away by the change of events, and I’m unhappy that I’ll have to wait until July 1 to see the following two episodes. Why are there just two episodes in Volume II, I wonder? I want more, despite the fact that I know this series only has 7-8 episodes every season. Anyway, I’m a big fan of this series. I can’t suggest it highly enough.

All I can say is that I cannot wait for volume II. If you have not yet watched this season, or even the previous seasons of Stranger Things, you should definitely watch it, especially if you are fond of reading and watching supernatural, horror, and science-fiction genres. You will definitely love this one. But remember, watch out for the cliffhangers.

My Overall Rating
