A few nights ago, my roommates and I cracked open a box of wine and settled in for a movie night at home. We were in the mood for a “peekaboo,” our term for a movie that’s scary and suspenseful, but nothing so terrifying that we’d end up traumatized and in a psych ward post-viewing. We’d all seen Netflix advertising Hush during our personal streaming sessions, and figured home invasion plus deaf woman equalled perfect choice. 


Since then, one of my roommates has rewatched Hush eight times, asking friends “Have you seen Hush? No? Let’s watch it!” We’re all obsessed.

What can I say about Stranger Things that hasn’t already been said? (You’re gonna find out).  Netflix’s summer smash hit is the perfect binging serving size. The first season is comprised of eight episodes, clocking in less than an hour each.  You could consume the entire season in a day, and still have time to do some other human activity like go out to dinner, or put on clean underwear.
