‘Stranger Things’: Netflix Has A Hit

Stranger Things, which premiered in July on Netflix, has been one of the streaming service’s most popular original series. It’s also one of the most watched on Netflix.

The eight episode series (so far) is a tribute to supernatural themed movies and books from the 1980s. Major déjà vu elements of The Goonies, E.T., Heathers, and definitely inspired by Steven Spielberg and Stephen King.


Among Netflix originals, Stranger Things ranks ahead of Making a Murderer (13.35 million), Daredevil season two (13.35 million), Jessica Jones (6.26 million), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season two (6.08 million), The Ranch (6.01 million), House of Cards season four (5.67 million), all other Netflix series

Netflix declines to release ratings information about its programming. Netflix argues that because they’re an ad-free subscription service, ratings are not necessarily part of its business model.

Stranger Things has a 95% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it one of the best reviewed series of 2016 so far.

Upcoming memoir: Mike Myers

Funnyguy Mike Myers writes about Wayne Campbell, the Leafs and his 53-year relationship with his beloved Canada and his career in a book due out in October.

The book to be published by Doubleday Canada is described as part memoir, part history, and “complete entertainment”.

“I’m an actor, producer and writer, but no description of me is complete without saying I’m a Canadian,” says Mike Myers. “In 1967, Canada turned 100. Canadians all across the country made Centennial projects. This book is my Centennial Project. I’m handing it in a little late…..sorry.”

We’ll find out how much Myer’s will dish on his fellow Saturday Night Live alumni and what went into creating some of his most loved characters like Dieter (“Sprockets”), hyper-active helmet wearing kid Phillip, and Linda Richman (star of “Coffee Talk”). Surely the Scarborough- raised comedian will have a few things to say about Austin Powers and Dr. Evil.

Fully illustrated, it will include images from Mike Myers’ personal archive. He began his professional career with Chicago’s Second City Troupe. Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels’ discovery of Myers at Second City led to his debut as a featured performer and writer on the show in 1989.

No word if Myers will have a few things to say about his comedy flop, The Love Guru.
