    "I was looking into which episodes of Stranger Things are the best, and why. The Monster showcases the rising tension of the show's first season, and lays bare many of the mysteries surrounding The Upside Down and Will Byer's disappearance. I suggest watching it again if you've seen it, or watching it soon if you have not."

    "This episode is definitely my favorite one by far. It seems to be very popular among the fanbase. I think the biggest reason is that it is Halloween-themed, which makes it that much scarier. If you're a fan of the show and you have not yet seen this episode, you need to check it out!"

    "The show Stranger Things was a really fun watch. If I had to pick a favorite episode, it would probably be the last episode. In any show, it's very important to ramp up to the finale but also deliver on the plot holes and promises, which is something Stranger Things does quite well at."

    "I'm not exactly the biggest fan of this show, but this particular one was good enough. I will say, I do enjoy the references that fly by, or easter eggs in the scene, especially all the 80's nods. Decent, but nothing to write home about."
