Review: Stranger Things Season 1 Episode 4 “Chapter Four: The Body”

Though the mystery and science fiction elements of the series continue to be interesting and the small hints are cleverly placed throughout to make sure the audience remain engaged, the slow narrative pacing makes much of the story feel repetitive while some characters jump to random conclusions making the show seem at times slightly implausible, as while it is comforting to see Nancy’s storyline gain some relevancy and tie into Jonathan’s plot, which also was going nowhere, Joyce continues to be stuck in the same cycle of screaming and acting crazy, a cliché we have seen a million times before leading to a predictable outcome that lacks impact. 7.2/10
