Symphony claims that about 8 million people have watched Netflix's Stranger Things. Daniel Fienberg is one of them and says the show is one of the few highlights in a summer TV season of gloom, and Will Nicol says the show makes him optimistic about the future of TV. Genevieve Valentine is only disappointed in the show's view of women, and Shannon Keating has concerns about the show's portrayal of unfeminine women as part of a wider Hollywood problem. Tufayel Ahmed focuses on the rise of the show's creators.
