1. Many of us here have probably watched "Stranger Things", "The Witcher" and "Ozark", some of the most popular shows on Netflix to date. But, were you wondering if they were inspired by books? "Stranger Things" has been one of Netflix's biggest hits, and it has been renewed for its fourth season, in 2022. "Stranger Things" is not based on a book, but has inspired its own series of books. The first book in the series of four serves as a prequel to the series. Although "Stranger Things" is not based on a novel or book, it takes inspiration from primarily the works of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, and Stephen King, as well as the movie "Jaws", true events during the Cold War and conspiracy theories involving secret government experiments, anime and video games. So, although the series is a fictional account, it has drawn inspiration from both real life events and fictional events. Did you watch the series and did you think it was based on either a book or real life events?

With the 4th season just streaming now,

3. With the 4th season just streaming now, "Ozark" is filling the void for "Breaking Bad" and "Narcos" fans. "Ozark" is a fictional show created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams. The characters, as well as the Navarro Cartel, are all a figment of the creators' imaginations. However, the inspiration behind several things depicted in the show is very real. Have you watched the series and did you think it was based on a book?
