When “Stranger Things,“ a series clearly and proudly inspired by the work of Stephen King, premiered on Netflix last Summer, King himself took to Twitter to rave.
“Watching STRANGER THINGS is like watching Steve King’s Greatest Hits. I mean that in a good way,” King tweeted on July 17, 2016. He continued in a follow-up tweet, “STRANGER THINGS is pure fun. A+. Don’t miss it. Winona Ryder shines.”
So then, now that Season 2 premiered on Netflix late last month, did King binge it along with the rest of us? Not only did he, but he absolutely LOVED the second season.
“STRANGER THINGS 2: Ladies and gentlemen, that’s how you do it: no bullshit, balls to the wall entertainment. Straight up,” King tweeted last night. “Feel free to disagree, but…you would be wrong.”
We agree, sir. We wholeheartedly agree. And we even loved Episode 7!
