The Vampire Diaries

144K members 8 seasons171 episodes

Elena Gilbert is a 17-year-old girl living in the mysterious town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. Since the death of their parents in a car accident, she and her brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), 15, live with their aunt and legal guardian, Jenna Sommers. Elena has her two best friends by her side, Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham) and Caroline Forbes (Candice King).

At the beginning of the school year, she meets Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley), a mysterious new student, and immediately falls for him before meeting his older brother, Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder). She soon discovers their secret: they are vampires. While Stefan prefers to feed on animal blood because he has compassion for humans, Damon is a more cruel and bloodthirsty vampire who likes to stalk his victims before draining them of their blood. Elena doesn't know they are vampires yet.

It's by getting to know them that she will discover their identity, get closer to them and awaken old demons. An ancestral war between vampires can be awakened at any moment, or even with other creatures of the night. But above all, a rivalry between the two brothers for Elena's heart will raise the stakes.

Stranger Things: An 80s Nostalgia Trip Worth Adding to Your BetaSeries Account

In today's streaming age, there's no shortage of quality content vying for our attention. But few series have captured viewers' imaginations quite like Netflix's Stranger Things. Set in 1980s Indiana, this captivating show combines elements of adventure, drama, fantasy, horror and science-fiction to serve up an intoxicating cocktail of nostalgia and suspense.

At its core, Stranger Things is about a group of lovable young friends who stumble upon supernatural forces and secret government exploits in their small town. This premise might sound familiar - echoes of popular 80s films like E.T., The Goonies and Stand By Me are evident - but the Duffer Brothers manage to put a fresh spin on these well-trodden themes.

The ensemble cast is led by Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven (or El for short), a girl with telekinetic abilities who befriends Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin). These kids' performances are undoubtedly one of the show's highlights; they're both heartwarmingly real in their friendships and impressively adept at handling the series' more dramatic moments.
