“Stranger Things” is one of the very few shows with kids as the main characters. When Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) gets “lost,” his three best friends look everywhere for him but soon figure out that a creature called The Demogorgon sucks him into a whole new world called The Upside Down.

As best friends Mike, Lucas and Dustin try to find him, they come across a strange girl and name her Eleven due to the mark on her arm that says 011. Eleven lives with Mike and his family in the basement, but Mike keeps it a secret from his family.

I highly recommend this show if you enjoy shows about mysteries and kids. Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, won the award for best actor/actress in a TV show at only age 14. She had tough competition as actors from “The Walking Dead”, “This Is Us” and “Game Of Thrones.” They also won best show of the year, which I think was well deserved. Each episode ends in a cliffhanger, which keeps the audience interested and wanting to watch the next episode.

In season one, Eleven gets split up from her friends and, most importantly, Mike, her best friend. Season two they have a chance to meet up again but face many obstacles. Eleven uses her powers to help everyone, but a couple twists come along the way.

When Will disappears I really liked how all the characters change. Their personalities change for the worst, and his mom begins to go crazy. His friends try hard to find him, and when they can’t, they seem disturbed.  If you haven’t already watched season one, definitely watch it, so you can catch up, and also watch season two.
