The case for the show made it looks like an old school VHS that you might find at your local video store, complete with a retro price sticker and faux wear on the box. Now a Stranger Things season 2 Blu-ray release is doing the same. Read More »

One of the charms of the first season of Stranger Things was how scrappy it was.
