Stranger Things Season 1 is a big '80s adventure

5 second plot: Probable spoilers ahead! It's 1983. In a small town a little girl and a big monster escape from a secret government research facility. At the same time a kid goes missing. His friends and family start looking for him. But they will have to go to a very dark place if they want to get him back.

5 second review: This is a very well made 8-episode kids adventure TV show with a very scary monster. It's a little bit of an E.T. and Goonies wannebee but it goes a lot darker than these feel good movies. Personally I would have preferred the 1,5 hour movie version because some of the first episodes are a bit of a stretch. But overall: well done. And a special hip hop hooray for Millie Bobby Brown. This girl can act! Wow.
