Netflix has released some rather impressive viewing figures for their latest sci-fi/horror series “Stranger Things 3”. In the show’s first 4 days 40.7 million household accounts watched it and 18.2 million accounts had finished the whole season.
Personally, having just finished season 3 last night, I have to say that it is the best season yet – a great mix of comedy, horror and ‘coming-of-age’ storylines. It is also quite possibly the fastest I have watched a series – it was that gripping and I just needed more!
