Season 4:

Daniel - ★★★★★

"Stranger things season four was amazing.

It had great action with good drama and amazing characters. One of my favourite parts of it is that there is always multiple stories going on at once in different parts of the world. I also thought that it had a few plot twists which were extremely surprising. My favourite character by a lot is Steve because he is funny and really cool.

Over all stranger things season 4 was a great season with action, comedy and drama."

For more child friendly but still kind of weird and creepy (yet funny!) TV shows check out the toon series' Gravity Falls and Over the Garden Wall. Where the Wild Things Are has a young boy going into a strange land of monsters - but they are a bit friendlier. There's a group of teens telling each other creepy stories in Are You Afraid of the Dark? For teen vampires try our The Vampire Diaries or Vampire Academy. Looking for something a bit scarier? Try The Woman in Black.

You can catch up with the Stranger Things filmmakers and cast in the behind-the-scenes series Beyond Stranger Things and also check out the Duffers brothers other show Wayward Pines. Daniel recommends another horror with The Conjuring.
