I have a uh... friend who's been thinking about watching this, but he doesn't have Netflix.  So he's been looking around online for a place to watch it but all the sites he tries seem to have a crap ton of spyware and/or pop up ads.  Dunno what to tell him...

Get Netflix? Seriously, he could just get it for a month, watch 2 seasons, and cancel. Would only cost $8.

To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

I think they released it on DVD.

Checking... BluRay, at the least: https://www.target.com/p/stranger-things-season-1-collector-s-edition-target-exclusive-blu-ray-dvd/-/A-52823816#lnk=sametab

It would actually cost zip, since the first month is a free trial period. Even so, Netflix has plenty of good stuff, including the new MST3K.

A show that's a little derivative but makes up for it with fantastic characters, acting, and well paced suspense that doesn't use a lot of jumpscares.

The highlight of the show in my opinion is the acting. Not only is Winona Ryder amazing in the role of Joyce Byers but it has a plethora of talented child actors.
It's proof that only 99.99% of child actors are worse than malaria.

SPOILERS

Pretty much all of the scenes with Winona Ryder are fantastic like sleeping with an axe, stringing up Christmas lights, and painting the alphabet on the wall to communicate with her son. But the part that really showcased her acting ability is when she's in a cupboard hugging a wad of Christmas lights since it's the closest thing to holding her missing son. It's absolutely heart wrenching and seeing her stop at nothing to get her son back, not caring that she looks like a lunatic, makes her one of the strongest characters in the show. The scene where she walks back into the house when she knows there's a monster inside with a look of pure determination of her face is absolutely badass. When the lights spell out R-U it's the ultimate "Oh s**t" moment because you know right away the last letter is N and it's absolutely terrifying.

Millie Bobbie Brown plays a girl that barely speaks English and talks in a monotone, almost robotic voice. Despite this she gives way more than just a monotone performance. The scene in Stranger Things 2 where Eleven gets in a fight with Hopper is very difficult to watch but is acted perfectly and the scenes where random things trigger flashbacks to her time with Dr. Brenner are increadibly saddening, just watching this poor girl growing up in unending abuse, not even treated like a human being. I just love the scene where she flips the game board and slams down the Demogorgon piece. It's a perfect build up of exactly how terrifying this monster is.

Finn Wolfhard is extremely mature for his age. Not only is his acting fantastic but the real life kid is actually pretty damn smart and has a great sense of humor. I even saw him on two episodes of Game Grumps and he was absolutely hysterical. "Dude, my baby ears hurt."
He even responded very maturely to blatant sexual harassment.

In fairness to Lloyd, I don't think anyone could have made that s**tty script good.

Worst case scenario, most major chain stores like CVS, Rite-Aid and Wal-Mart sell Netflix gift cards starting at $15.  Use that, get a month's use out of it to watch what you want, and it expires in a few weeks.

Or if you know someone with a Netflix acct just use their info.  I have a friend at work and I used hers for like 2 years before signing up myself.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
