Below is the synopsis of "Stranger Things," per Rotten Tomatoes.

It's 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demagorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

The series holds a 94 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, following its second season. After the second season premiered, Buzzfeed's Alison Willmore wrote: 

Stranger Things provides a form of escapism that has nothing to do with alternate dimensions. It invites viewers to indulge in the sweet self-righteousness that can come with getting excluded for being uncool.

Below is the synopsis of "Riverdale," per Rotten Tomatoes

Drama based on characters from the Archie comic-books series is set in Riverdale, where aspiring musician Archie deals with life, love and high school.

"Riverdale" holds a 87 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, following its second season. The Wrap's Phil Owen wrote about the show's second season premiere:

This show is as good as TV melodrama gets, achieves maximum bang for it buck in delivering that melodrama without betraying the characters, and also it looks great. Riverdale is no joke.
