NET­FLIX It’s 1983 in an Amer­i­can small town where not much ever hap­pens, when a young boy named Will sud­denly goes miss­ing. At the same time, an un­usual lit­tle girl turns up – wear­ing a hos­pi­tal gown, a shaved head and No.11 tat­tooed on her arm. As Will’s dis­traught mother Joyce (Wi­nona Ry­der) and his three friends search for an­swers, a series of bizarre mys­ter­ies are un­cov­ered.

They face a se­cre­tive gov­ern­ment agency, off-the-books ex­per­i­ments, su­per­nat­u­ral forces and a dan­ger­ous be­ing. This bril­liant series takes its cue from the clas­sic ’80s su­per­nat­u­ral film genre, with a thrilling story and nos­tal­giain­duc­ing tones mak­ing for a very binge-wor­thy ex­pe­ri­ence. The cast is bril­liant – es­pe­cially the young­sters who make this show what it is. Even if the oth­er­worldly theme isn’t your usual thing, give Stranger Things a go – I prom­ise you’ll be hooked.
