The writers and executive producers of Stranger Things (The Duffer Brothers) give proper respect to a movie they appreciated while growing up. Set in during the ‘80s, Stranger Things happens in a community called Indiana in America. The community is famous for everything scary.
At the U. S. Department of Energy, a mysterious event happens. That is where Will (Noah Schnapp) vanishes after a night with his peers and his family and consequently Hawkins town goes into darkness. After that, a gathering of high school geeks end up engaged in the quest to find their missing companion, Will. The party is made up of Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarrazo) and Lucas Sinclair (Caleb McLaughlin).
While searching for their buddy, they come across Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), an unusual young lady who is on the run from ‘bad people’. The people chasing Eleven were apparently trying to open a portal that would bring a monster to Hawkins.
With the youngsters as theirs heroes, the Duffers quickly set the ‘80s tone. The whole show proves fun for enthusiasts of 80s popular culture with great performances from captivating characters.

Season 2 presents another evil, Mind Flayer, or the Shadow Master. It’s fundamentally a monster that’s very creepy and bigger than the whole city of Hawkins. The Mind Flayer controls the upside down and everything inside it.
Season 1 came to a close with everybody thinking Eleven was dead. In the second season we learn that she didn’t. She discovers her natural mother and that there were more kids in Hawkins Lab like her. Eleven at that point finds a group of them, but, unfortunately, the meeting becomes brief. That’s because the others were really obsessed with seeking vengeance against former Hawkins Lab workers, but she did not.
In this season, a new character called Max (Sadie Sink) is introduced. Dustin and Lucas, two friends of Will, spend season 2 fighting over her. Dustin also finds a slug and names it Dart. At that point, he finds it as an infant Demogorgon (the monster’s child) that ends up killing his mother’s cat.
Mike (one of Will’s friends), invests most of his energy and time attempting to connect with Eleven. That is because he believes she’s still alive.
Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), the former boyfriend of Nancy Wheeler (Natalier Dyer), depicts the best character development ever. Steve turns into a more seasoned sibling figure to the young boys, especially Dustin. Truly, we can't quit contemplating over Steve helping Dustin with his hair and driving him to the Snow Ball.
Max, the skateboarding redhead who gets to know the young boys, moves to Hawkins with her more established sibling Billy (Dacre Montgomery). We see a touch of Billy’s oppressive associations with his father and Max. And, he gives a good old-fashioned thumping to Steve.

8. Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt”
Time had passed since the Mind Flayer was defeated. It is in 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer is at its peak. Schools are closed and the teenage boys are at their cusp of adulthood. As they grow up, their emotions develop as well. Emotions bloom and interfere with the group's chemistry. But all in all, they have to grow up and ensure they don't separate for any reason.
At the same time, misfortunes present themselves both in the old and the new. Eleven and her companions are reminded that evil never ceases, but develops. Presently, they need to unite as one to endure and recall that friendship is constantly stronger than fear.
The battle against the monster is partitioned into the camps, which are supportively given code names in the finale.
The Griswold Family, so named as “Vacation”-style station wagon is the majority. It comprises of Mike, Lucas, Will, Eleven, Max, Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) and Nancy. Next is the Scoop Troop, which is mostly made up of code-breakers and lab-invaders for rodents. They include Steve, Robin (Maya Hawke), Dustin and Lucas’ abusing little sister. That leaves the adults, Joyce and Hopper (David Harbor), alongside the paranoia private detective Murray (Bret Gelman). To Murray’s shame, Dustin names their gang Bald Eagle.
Before the Griswold Family, The Scoop Troop and Bald Eagle get their walkie-talkies for the climactic fight, the monster reinforcement gathers. Dustin’s removal from his pals for a significant part of the show was one of the few cracks in the group. In this season, Will is spared by the Mind Flayer, but the feels the girls are a complete distraction.
In case you haven't watched the series, find time. It will not disappoint you!
